The Awful Sweetness of Escaping Sweat  

we escape from the house
as the day dissapears from the sky

Into night
we bacame what we wanted to be
       G          Am
like a dream or a ghost
i collapse out of turn

near a house
lying still in the grass and felt the heat from the ground
                  C          G          Am
rising up to contract and expand like a breath
we escape from that place
soaked with sweat and the poison we drank
fill the bathtub with ice, hope this fever will break
like a heart
      Dm                    G
but i do not recall all the words that were formed
on those wire lips as they greeted me
  Dm                      G                          Am
a promise was made witout thought as the temperature climbed
      Dm                       G
and i started to sink like the moon
                   Am    E  C  Em  G
tends to do if you stare at it too long
         E              Am
then you blink and it's gone
       C            G              Am
and we crawl to our sleep with the dawn

Dm Am repeated with "isn't it the same mistake"

  Dm                                              Am
i awake in the light feeling hollow and selfishly warm
close the blinds and retreat until what's burning is gone
         G        Am
and it's light is away
the we are back in the dark
chasing nothing through backyards and trees
you ripped your shirt on a fence but it didn't get me
yeah it's fear
it makes you so low
and these creatures look crooked
their shadows cut lines through my face and the concrete is fire
where my bare feet are placed
     G            Am
in a line next to yours
      Dm                           G
and i guess i'm not sure if it was fear that was born
as those awful eyes made their claim on us
i put my hands on the fence
said your name
and i started to climb
       Dm                         G
and it must have been sweat but i drank it like wine
       Am     E  C     Em  G
it was sweet, my mouth was dry
            E                    Am
i heard you scream but i made no reply
      C              G        Am
i can still taste it now if i try

I'm hoping that's right. Enjoi     www.inastorytold.com

All of this seems pretty much right. I've recorded this as a cover referencing this tab and I think it's correct. voted 5

Excellent tab for a simple yet very fun song to play. One of the few 100% accurate tabs on here.

Excellent tab, only a small note on the dm: on the last strum he sometimes will play a dsus4. Just basically taking the
pinky and covering the third fret on e.
