Tabbed by LatentBoarder for Ultimate Guitar.


This is a simple song, consisting of only two major rhythm portions which alternate 
throughout the song.  To my ear it sounds down-tuned, play in Eb.  Muted notes are 
suggested, just feel it and play.

Lyrics:

***

(start at 0:54)

I miss all my old friends as they were before
I miss all the cities as they were before
I miss all the daytimes spent with some old friends
But I know everything must end

You live like shit and suffer for your art
Is that what you call it?
Is that what you call it?
She said
You live like shit
And suffer for your art
Is that what you call it?
Is that what you call it?

That's messed up
And it's fucking depressing
How much of this must you put up with?
And how many times do I have to say stay away?
And how many friends must I go through?
And how many lies must I put you through?

You live like shit
And suffer for your art
Is that what you call it?
Is that what you call it?
It wouldn't be art if you didn't starve yourself to death, she said
It wouldn't be art if you didn't starve yourself to death, she said

That's messed up
And it's fucking depressing
When was the last time that you've seen the sun?
And I don't mean at sunset
When you're just waking up
And I don't mean at sunrise
When you're still up from the night before
When was the last time that you felt good,
As deep as you are through hours of my time
And minutes of daylight?
Glimpse yourself thin pale soft and white
And sick as hell

You live like shit
And suffer for your art
Is that what you call it
Is that what you call it she said

You live like shit
And suffer for your art
Is that what you call it
Is that what you call it she said
And that's messed up
And it's fucking depressing

Notes:

I am aware this tab is incomplete.  I was listening to the album and had a guitar handy, 
looked for the tab and didn't see it.  I couldn't live knowing that there were no 
Firebird Band tabs on Ultimate Guitar, so here you go...

Please add to/fix this tab!  I would love to read someone else's interpretation of this 
awesome song!


Legend:

x = palm muted string
