G F#m7 Em7 B C9
i sink into the walls
and staring up i saw
i'm alone in all my thoughts
too afraid to be crazy, i run.
 D            C9
it always finds me

G F#m7 Em7 B C9
i'm driving right through town
but the windows down i fly
it's a feeling spring has brought
but an eye for the winters what i got
  D                 C9
it always finds me.

 G                          Em7
so tonight when i left here
         C9                D                          G
all i said was "goodbye" and thats alright

             C9                                D
i'm too slow to go fast, too nervous to do that.
          G        Em7              C9           D    C9
so i run, run away, why should i...

G F#m7 Em7 B C9
i take my chances slow
after all it's no ones fault
but the pain seemes to crave my life
so ashamed of my weakness, i lied
  D             C9
it always finds me. 

 G                          Em7
so tonight when i left here

all i said was "goodbye" and thats alright

time goes by and we watch our lives 
 C9  Em7     A                   C9  Em7     A    
as they're sadly slipping away
C9  Em7     A    C9  Em7     A              G
alone                  we crawl.

alone                 you crawl.

when he put his mind to something it was done

it makes me laugh, it gives me hope

             D              G             C9                          D
i'm sitting alone and i think to myself, i'd be great if people could know.
            D           G           C9                              D
if we wore big tags or we threw big partys where only lost people could go.
           C9                        Em7                    D
so we'd never think we're wrong, and we'd never feel alone, alone.

I know the sum and substance of my evil

A G F G  (or play Am if you're doing open chords)

We all knew this day was coming 
Our bitter hearts can hear it calling 
So proud of what youve done so proud of who you are 
Standing tall next to all the buildings 
       G                                  F
And filling up with all the reasons why you should never trust yourself 
               G                 F        A  F  A
The way to fool yourself....im fooled

         A                     
Its those nights alone where your driving
       G
And the sky just looks a little funny 
           F                     G
Your thinking of the worst you figure out the worst
  A                              G                                
Right after you figure it all out you find a way to straighten your head out
 F                                 G 
But what if you are wrong and the world is adding up 
        A 
Its throwing signs from random places 
        G                                         F
To keep you at your toes so you dont figure it out 
    G             
Before you figure it out 
     A             G     F
We fall to our knees and beg 
          G
The words are gone 
             F     A   F  A
Its just a thought 
         F           D
And we fall and we fall 
And we fall to our knees 
And we fall and we fall
(Our bitter hearts can hear it calling 
So proud of what weve done)

While I can't agree on all the chord voicings, everything fits. Impressive, cause Ace uses some pretty weird chords that are hard to hear on the CD.

The only thing I noticed was that sometimes you neglected to put in the tunings, and I also wish that you put in the picked breakaway part in An Oak Stands Beside a Linden, but whatever, it's fine.

Very, very impressive.
