This song is in standard tuning in the demo, and tuned a half step down when 
played live. (pretty accurate, definitely not perfect)

(All the chords in this section are palm muted power chords)

         F             C
all that music in your mouth
       G               Am
rivers rushing at your teeth
         Bb                   F
cresting waves through wading valleys
        Bb            F
flooded language tributaries
            Bb    F    C/G
connect and cover over me
        F                C
tensing jaw & cork screw eyelids
          G                Am
as if you couldn't bare to see
         Bb            F
all that water pouring from you
           Bb                F
collecting clouds inside the ballroom
     Bb     F         C/G       Bb
over people who don't know you
but darling i do

On 'do', begin this riff:

(Return to palm-muted power chords)
               F                     C
you trance yourself back towards the city
          G              Am
blood not moving to your feet
                Bb            F
your foot falls tentative and muffled
    Bb             F
automatic listless shuffle
              Bb      F          C/G     
your sidewalk scatter brain, cry uncle
              F                 C   
you paint yourself back in your corner
             G            Am
and look for her on your t.v.
            Bb             F   
it's friday night and i am hungry
      Bb               F
for a hand, a mouth, a body
         Bb       F       C/G   Bb
a love i wouldn't have to carry

(For the next section, either play the riff or the chords below)

 ..Mouth         ..now           ..canal         ..town

a stitch in my mouth
and i'm untying now
a concrete canal
                 Dm   G A
in a bomb border town

(return to palm muted power chords again)

   Bb          Am
an echo in the rafters
          Dm              G
reminding you there was a sound
    (D)|-7-----5---3-| Dm
but you killed her in  waves
             C                    F   C
she stayed a steam to hiss at you now

(Stop palm muting here)
  G Gadd9 Am      Bb       F    Am Bb      F    Am Bb  F   C/G C7

                 Bb   F
he killed her in waves
               Am     Dm
but that's not today

(back to palm muting again)

so you breathe through your mouth
try to calm yourself down
and keep what you found
and shout it out loud

(And stop palm muting again)

she can hover and hurt
or dissolve to dirt
                   F   A
some prayer in you mouth
and she might stay a steam
so get to the beams
                   F    A
let you figure her out

G, Dm, Bb, F, Bb, F, Bb, C/G, C7, F

Sorry everyone who reads this: I just noticed that all the Am in the verses should actually be Dm

I think that the G's should be Gm's! Also, is this for the acoustic demo, or the version on the EP?
