                 Under The Lampposts - Chewing on Tinfoil
Tabbed by: Woody
Email: tabs@andrewgoodricke.com

This is my first tab, I think it's pretty close.
Thanks to SwampmanCory for posting the chords (http://goo.gl/SL5oe) via Chewing On Tinfoil.

Tuning: EADGBe

Dm      xx0231
F       xx1123
C       x32010
Bb      x13331
A       x02220

And so they say, so they say, so they say
"But you won't understand the 
workings of this world with your
head buried in the sand." 

And so I say, so I say, so I say
"But there's so much to do? And the
graveness of the situation
is shadowed by my ineptitude."

                         F                C
There's nothing like the moon to hide the sun,
                        Dm                    Bb
we're forced to use the lamp-post to guide us home. 
                        F             C
We thought we'd last forever, we were wrong. We walk home through
    Dm                 Bb                       F         C
the night time singing songs, 'cause there's no forever.
                Dm  Bb                     F  C                   Dm  Bb  C
There's no forever,     There's no forever,    there's no forever.

Dm                                                                                           F
Trust the fact that everything is relative, trust the fact that nobody will ever say: 'fine.
                                       C                                Bb    C
The brain is all there is to the mind.' But life is not a waste of your time. 

This is no lament, it's suspension of belief, it's analyzing everything to justify a means. 
"KEEP GOD OUT OF FIRHOUSE." was written down by my house. 
Ten foot letters on a concrete wall. Did the priest mind? Well not at all. 
If he has to pick and choose well then his ethics are his. 

                          F                      C                  Dm                  Bb
There's nothing like your brain to spoil the fun, but you must keep living until you're done. 
                F                    C           Dm                  Bb                   F     C
This was all in effort to feel alive. If anybody sings this into the night. It'll live forever. 
                Dm  Bb                     F  C                   Dm  Bb
It'll live forever,     It'll live forever,    It'll live forever.

F                                                     A                                    
Etch my name in a tree so passers-by are aware that I once lived a life without a care. 
Dm                                                  Bb
A single set of footprints just to prove that I was there.
F                                                   A                            
Well you're lookin' at me while I'm lookin' at you. When will you realise,
                                Dm    Bb F C
son, you're singing to an empty room?
         Dm   Bb F C          Dm   Bb F C          Dm   Bb F C F
An empty room,       An empty room,       An empty room.

Good job, I'd just change all of the E chords to F and it's spot on
