  Am            G             Am            G


[Intro]
G   C   Am  D11
G   Em  Am  B7

[Verse]
G                                     C
   Woke up and for the first time the animals were gone
Am                      D11            G
   It's left this house empty now, not sure if I belong
Em                           Am
   Yesterday you asked me to write you a pleasant song
B7
   I'll do my best now, but you've been gone for so long
G                                C
   The window's open now and the winter settles in
Am               D11                G
   We'll call it Christmas when the adverts begin
Em                              Am
   I love your depression and I love your double chin
B7
   I love 'most everything that you bring to this offering

[Chorus]
Am                  G          Am          G
  Oh I know that I left you in places of despair
Am                  G           Am                    G
  Oh I know that I love you, so please throw down your hair
Am                    G            Am             G
  At night I trip without you, and hope I don't wake up
Am                    G                Am                  G
  'Cause waking up without you is like drinking from an empty cup

[Chorus]
G                     C
  Woke up and for the first time the animals were gone
Am               D11             G
  Our clocks are ticking now so before our time is gone
Em                              Am
  We could get a house and some boxes on the lawn
B7
  We could make babies and accidental songs
G                    C
  I know I've been a liar and I know I've been a fool
Am                 D11                G
  I hope we didn't break yet, but I'm glad we broke the rules
Em                            Am
  My cave is deep now, yet your light is shining through
B7
  I cover my eyes, still all I see is you

[Repeat Chorus]

Track 3: Elephant (Informal Skin) (Originally titled Blowers Daughter Part 2.)

This is the chords for the song.

[Verse]
                E                    G#m
This has got to die, this has got to stop
                F#m                            Am
This has got to lie down, with someone else on top
        E                              G#m
You can keep me pinned, it’s easier to tease
                       F#m                       Am
But you can't paint an elephant quite as good as she

[Chorus]
            E           G#                F#m          Am
And she may cry like a baby. And she may drive me crazy
      E    A       F#m B
Cause I am lately… Lonely

[Verse]
                E                            G#m
So why’d you have to lie? I take it I'm your crotch
                    F#m                     Am
The pillow in your pillow case is easier to touch
                            E                            G#m
And then you think you've sinned, as you fall upon your knees
               F#m                       Am
Living in your picture, still forget the breeze

[Chorus]
             E        G#
And she may rise if I sing you down
            F#m    Am
And she may wisely cling to the ground
      E     A     F#m B
Cause I am lately horny
   E             A       F#m B
So why would she take me horny?

[Middle 8]
F#m                         Am
   What's the point of this song? Or even singing?
F#m               B
   You've already gone, why am I clinging?
F#m                                     B
   Well I could throw it out, and I could live without
   And I could do it all for you I could be strong
C#m  (Staccato here)       B
Tell me if you want me to lie

[Verse]
                E                           G#m
'Cause this has got to die, this has got to stop
                F#m                                 Am
This has got to lie down, down with someone else on top
             E                                      G#m
You can both keep me pinned, ‘cause it's easier to tease
                      F#m                    Am
But you can't make me happy quite as good as me

Well you know that’s a lie

Em7        Cadd9     G         D/F#
What I want from you is empty your head.
        Em7        Cadd9  G          D/F#
But they say be true, don't stain your bed.
    Em7  Cadd9         G          D/F#
And we do what we need to be free.
        Am                C           D
And it leans on me like a rootless tree.

   Em7     Cadd9     G       D/F#
What I want from us you is empty your mind.
      Em7        Cadd9     G         D/F#
But we fake, we fuss, and fracture the times.
Em7     C            G         D/F#
We go blind when we needed to see.
           Am                C   D
And this leans on me, like a rootless...

 Em7        Cadd9        G
Fuck you, Fuck you, Fuck you
     D/F#
and all we've been through.
       Em7        Cadd9       G
I said leave it, leave it, leave it,
     D/F#
it's nothing to you.
           Em7       C      G        D/F#
And if you hate me, hate me, hate me, hate me so good
              Em7
that you just let me out
Cadd9         G
let me out, let me out?
    D/F#
Its hell when you're around.
Em7          Cadd9         G
Let me out, let me out, let me out.

Hell when you're around.
Em7          Cadd9         G         D/F#
Let me out, let me out, let me out.

       Em7         Cadd9
What I want from this
      G            D/F#
is to learn to let go.
    Em7      Cadd9
No, not of you
   G               D/F#
of all that's been told.
Em7  C        G           D/F#
Killers re-invent and believe
          Am                 C   D
and this leans on me, like a rootless...

 Em7       Cadd9       G
Fuck you, Fuck you, Fuck you

and all we've been through.
       Em7        Cadd9       G

it's nothing to you.

And if you hate me, hate me, hate me, hate me so good
              Em7
that you just let me out
Cadd9         G
let me out, let me out?

Its hell when you're around.
Em7          Cadd9         G
Let me out, let me out, let me out.

Its hell when you're around.

 Em7         Cadd9         G
Let me out, let me out, let me out
D/F#
hell when you're around.
 Em7         Cadd9         G
Let me out, let me out, let me out

hell when you're around.

 Em7         Cadd9         G           D/F#

Lyrics

VERSE

She lives with an orange tree
And the girl that does yoga
She picks the dead ones from the ground
When we come over

And she gives
I get
Without giving
Anything to me

BRIDGE

Like a morning sun
Like a morning
Like a morning sun
Like a good good morning sun

CHORUS

Girl that does yoga
When we come over
Girl that does yoga

VERSE

Well he lives in a little house
On the side of a little hill
Picks the litter from the ground
Litter little brother spills

He gives
I get
Without giving
Anything to me

BRIDGE

And the dogs they run
And the dogs they
And the dogs they run
In the good good morning sun

CHORUS

Side of a little hill
Litter little brother spills
Side of a little hill

MIDDLE 8 (Technically 2 middle 8’s!)

And she's always dressed in white
She's like an angel
Man she burns our eyes
When she turns
She pulls a smile
We drive her 'round
And she drives us wild
And she moves like a little girl
I become a child
Man she moved my world
And she gets splashed in paint
And turns away
And leaves me standing

VERSE

She lives with an orange tree
And a girl that does yoga
Got a wolf to keep her warm
When he comes over

And she gives
He gets
Without giving
Anything to see

BRIDGE

And the day it ends
And the day it
And the day it ends
And there's no need for me

CHORUS

With a girl that does yoga
When we come over
With a girl that does yoga

You can lie between her legs And go lookin' for:
                G         G/F#   G
Tell her you're searching for    her soul!
G      G/F#      Em                         G/E    G/F#   G
You can wait for ages        and watch your compost turn   to coal
   G     G/F#  Em                   G/E    G/F#    G
But time is contagious:        Everybody's getting old.

Track 9: Accidental Babies (mandolino)

Intro:
Dm   G   C Am   G

Verse1:
        F
Well I held you like a lover
	G			C	    Csus	Am   G
Happy hands, your elbow in the appropriate place
    F				G
And we ignored our others' happy plans
	    		C	       Csus	Am      G
For that delicate look upon your face
        F
Our bodies moved and hardened
	G			   C	    	Csus
Hurting parts of your garden, With no room for a pardon
      Am         C			     F       G
In a place where no one knows what we have done


Chorus:
	Dm    G		              C    Csus  Am   G
Do you come       together ever with him?
	Dm      G		              C     Csus  Am    G
And is he dark    enough, enough to see your light?
	    Dm     		              G
And do you brush your teeth before you kiss?
         C    Csus  Am   G
Do you miss my smell?
	   Dm			      G		 C		Csus   Am  G
and is he bold enough to take you on,    do you feel like you belong?
	Dm                  G	         C         Csus  Am    G
and does he drive you wild,   or just mildly free?
	    F      G
What about me?

Verse2:
          F
Well you held me like a lover
	G			   C	      Csus	Am   G
Sweaty hands, and my foot in the appropriate place
F			  G
We use cushions to cover happy glands
	    		C	       Csus	Am      G
In the mild issue of our disgrace
     F					 G
Our minds pressed and guarded While our flesh disregarded
      C		 Csus           Am		F	   	     G
The lack of space for the light-hearted, in the boom that beats our drum

        F
Well I know I make you cry,
       G
and I know sometimes you wanna die
    C	           Csus  	Am       G
But do you really feel alive without me,
           F
if so, be free
		      G	     C	                Csus	   Am      G
If not, leave him for me, before one of us has accidental babies
	    F      G
For we are in love

-==Chorus==-
	    F      G
What about me?

   I think I found a place where I feel I will...

My face is all wet 'cause my day was rough

            C            G               Am            Em

It's mostly right, but you should credit the authors of each tab, don't you think? also, the E in The Rat within the grain should be an E minor.
