NB.There is a second guitar part, it plays not 2 octaves higher but plays high,quiet notes that come down from high up in harmony with the main riff [VERSE] A5 C5e||---------------------------------------------------------------------------|B||---------------------------------------------------------------------------|G||--2-------------5----------------------2-2-2--5-4-2--5-5-----4-5-3-2-------|D||--2-------------5----------------------2-2-2--3-2-0--5-5-----4-5-3-2-------|A||--0-------------3----------------------0-0-0---------3-3--0--2-3-2-0-------|E||---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
(Keep repeated. Later on the A5 and C5 chords are palm-muted.) Morning always seems too stale to justify Lament blossoms, hours minutes of our lives Broken thoughts run through your empty mind At least a beaten dog knows how to lie [CHORUS] G5 D5 F5 C5 B5 I feel like I'm missing pieces of sleep, G5 D5 F5 C5 B5 My memory fades to a pale landscape, G5 D5 F5 C5 B5 You were an extinction a desert heat, G5 D5 F5 C5 B5 A blind illness of my anxiety. [VERSE 2] Endless hours in bed, no peace, in this mind No one knows the hell where innocence dies Fragments crawling like cobwebs on stone Blows away the safety only a sleeping pill knows
