Tool - 10000 Days Wings Part 2 chords version 1

			     SONG NAME - Band Name
Tabbed by: Ed

Tuning: Standard

This is my version that I play on solo acoustic guitar.  It's a lot shorter
than the actual song; most of the instrumental fills get kind of repetitive
with just an acoustic where, in the studio version, the bass or drums do 
something interesting.  You can play them if you want, most (not all, there 
are one or two nearer the end that I don't play and aren't in this tab) of 
them are just three chords that you can jazz up.

Chords used:
Am    x02210
A2    x02200
A9    x07000 (more precisely, A9(no 3rd))
Asus4 x02230
D     xx0232 (you can play the open A if you want)
G     320003
A     x02220 (optional)

Intro: Am A2 Am A2 A9

(The intro progression repeats as is until after "your way home")

Am A2 AmListen to the tales and romanticize,
A2 A9How we'd follow the path of the hero.
Am A2 AmBoast about the day when the rivers overrun.
A2 A9How we rise to the height of our halo.
Am A2 AmListen to the tales as we all rationalize
A2 A9Our way into the arms of the savior,
Am A2 AmFeigning all the trials and the tribulations;
A2 A9 Am A2 Am A2 A9 (repeat if desired)None of us have actually been there. Not like you.
Am A2 AmIgnorant siblings in the congregation
A2 A9Gather around spewing sympathy, Spare me.
Am A2 AmNone of them can even hold a candle up to you.
A2 A9Blinded by choice, these hypocrites won't see.
Am A2But, enough about the collective Judas.
AmWho could deny you were the one who
A2 A9Illuminated your little piece of the divine?
Am A2And this little light of mine, a gift you passed on to me;
Am A2 A9I'm gonna let it shine to guide you safely on your way, Your way home ...
Instrumental break: Am A2 Am A2 A9 Am A2 Am Asus4 A2 A9 (the Asus4 and following A2 take up half a measure each, while each other
chord is a full measure. You can throw in this variation any other time the main progression comes up in the future.)
Am A2 AmOh, what are they going to do when the lights go down
A2 A9Without you to guide them all to Zion?
Am A2 AmWhat are they going to do when the rivers overrun
A2 A9Other than tremble incessantly?
Am A2 Am A2High is the way, but all eyes are upon the ground.
Am A2 Am A2You were the light and the way they'll only read about.
Am A2 Am A2 I only pray, Heaven knows when to lift you out.
Am A2 A9 (one strum, hold)Ten thousand days in the fire is long enough;
Am A2 Am A2 A9You're going home.
Am A2 AmYou're the only one who can hold your head up high,
A2 A9Shake your fists at the gates saying: "I've come home now!"
Am A2Fetch me the spirit, the son, and the father.
Am A2Tell them their pillar of faith has ascended.
(I just go crazy on A9 here but you can throw in Am, A2, Asus4, A5, whatever)
A9It's time now!
A9My time now!
A9 A9 Am A2 Am A2 A9Give me my, give me my wings!"
(Here the recording goes into a long solo. Repeat the chords as many times as desired.)Am A2 Am A2 A9Hey oh, whoa oh oh oh o-oh, o-oh, o-oh, o-oh
Am A2 Am A2 Hey oh, whoa oh oh oh
A9You are the light and way that they will only read about.
(stuff below here is mostly made up by me, but it sounds all right) Am A2 Am Asus4 D D G G
Am A2 Am Asus4Set as I am in my ways and my arrogance,
D G Burden of proof tossed upon the believers.
Am A2 Am Asus4 You were my witness, my eyes, my evidence,
D G Am A2 Am A2 A9 (slowing down)Judith Marie, unconditional one.
Am A2 A9Daylight dims leaving cold fluorescents.
Am A2 Asus4 A9Difficult to see you in this light.
Am A2 A9Please forgive this bold suggestion, but
Am A2 Asus4 A9Should you see your Maker's face tonight,
Am A2 A9Look Him in the eye, look Him in the eye, and tell Him:
Am A2 A9"I never lived a lie, never took a life, but surely saved one.
Am A2 Am Asus4 A2 A Hallelujah, it's time for you to bring me home."
(I end on Amaj but you can end on A9 if you want a different feel.)
