"Future Reflections"

The chords in this song are damn near impossible
to hear, but after listening to many live perfomances
of this song, I think I've come up with an accurate
tab.  The first tab for this song is completely wrong
by the way.  It's also really important to listen to
the song while playing along with this tab, due to the 
fact that it's pretty insane.  Also, this is tuned down
half a step from the actual song.

               A
And there were future reflections
        E
On the face and the hands
      A
On a green colored island
      E
On a primitive man
           A
It was the future reflecting
          E
It felt familiar but new
             A
A street was missing a building
            E
The kids had something to do

F#m               E                      B
     There was a feeling the spirit was leaving
            A
Red like a marker
F#m              E
     So my tribe,  with my knife
B                    A
Cut the heart from a lonely life


This part is especially weird, so I just play basically
the bassline (which I mapped out for guitar)
throughout this verse:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------9--9-----9--9------9--9------9--9-----------------------------------|
D|-------9--9-----9--9------9--9------9--9-----------------------------------|
A|-------7--7-----7--7------7--7------7--7-----------------------------------|
E|----7--------7---------7---------7-----------------------------------------|


I saw patterns on floorboards
Deep in the dust was a leader
Someone was walking on floorboards
Turned them from oak to cedar
He can assess the situation
I wrapped a string around my finger
Into the forest with the young ones
I don't expect to be a winner


F#m                    E
   But as long as you feel it
         B
I'm a believer
               A
My heart is phosphor

F#m            E  
   Sea rolls,    death tolls
B                      A
Break the surface don't break my bones
F#m            E                    B
   Off of the trail and off of your hands and
       A
Onto a new plan
F#m            E
   Is the cost   to stay lost
  B            A
Forever in an empty skin
A#
Pale and thin

B                           A#
   If it's good, or if it's fortune, I can't tell
    A                              E
But pieces come together for some reason just as well
B
   Their guns couldn't see us
           A#
There's a sea outside my door
A
   And one day I'll appreciate
     E                     C                     C#m       B
The rush of blood and the washed out beat of the shore
                      A                  E
And remember what it felt like
       C#m        B  
To be alone
                 A          E
Sitting in the sunlight
     C#m      B      A      E
All alone

Just end on that progression:  C#m, B, A, E

Ok so listening again I determined that the 4th chord in the intro should be a barred E on 12... everything else in the progression is the same.

I want to post or [tab]
