			     The Bears Are Coming - Late of the Pier
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I’m tabbing this even though there’s barely any Guitar in the song, and the few bits
guitar in it I haven’t tabbed, the other tab was a bit poor. This is all for the lead
except when noted. I won’t comment on any of the drum parts but I can tell you from 
at the live videos they batter wooden posts as additional percussion.

It goes through a drum intro has a anacrusis of an A note, then:

Intro: C___________Am_____Em___________Ge|----------------------------------------|B|----------------------------------------|G|----------------------------------------|D|------2---2-----------------------------|A|3-------3---0-2-3-2-------2-------0-2---|E|--------------------0-------0-3-3-----3-| x2

Four Times then the Break:
Low Synthe|----------------|B|----------------|G|----------------|D|----------------|A|3---3-0---0-----|E|------------0---|
Then either ending 1#e|---------|B|---------|G|---------|D|2-2-2----|A|------0--|E|---------|
Or Mystery Ending 2#, for which you can either improvise on the lower range of the Or you can play the rising bit from “Back in Black”. Which is again the second ending of riff Play quadruple times using ending #1 1st and 3rd and Ending #2 2nd and 4th High Sqeaky Synth

Verse Again Break Again Then Complicated to figure out Bridge Part: It’s Hard to guess what being played, but this is my best shot. Play the Chords high up guitar as it is in the recording. An Keyboard Arpeggio Flies through this part, probably same chords, a walking bass part is present as well. A keyboard descent comes on C#m and Doo-wop backing vocal comes in in the last half. _____________________________F I Saw You Wading in the Water G#__________________________Am______________D I saw You Ride Along the Sea C#m____________________C Shine On Your nightmares G_______________________C (Drum Fill) Shine Through Your Tears

Guitar Solo: The Usual Verse Backing, and I won’t tab out the guitar solo but I will mention that it similar to the high synth in the break and you should keep the vocal melody in mind. of background smashing and cheering. Another Break Fake Coda Thing:
e|---------------------------------|B|---------------------------------|G|---------------------------------|D|---------------------------------|A|3---------------0-3---3-0----0---|E|--------0----------------------0-|
There’s a couple of spoon hits in there as well (I think) Last Bridge: The other tab was on the money for this part. More cheering, arpeggios and such, Guitar to be playing a repetitive high C Chord.
e|-------------------------------------------|B|-------------------------------------------|G|-------------------------------------------|D|-------------------------------------------|A|8---8---9---9----10----10---8---7-5-3---3--|Play Twice, Second Time RoundE|-------------------------------------------|Keep on playing that last note.
Lyrics: "Snap away," she said as she danced towards the moonlight, Run away he did as she cast off another night. So in tune were we by the thought of what could never be, So consumed were we by the fear that swelled between the sheets.What do they mean? Seamless dirty dreams. Why must you scream? Please dont make a scene. She plays, she plays, Is it all a game? Longing to be tamed, Sugar must be acid rain. I saw you wading in the water, I saw you ride along the sea. Shine on your nightmare, Shine through the tears.
