Poets of the Fall - Carnival of Rust

*** Capo 1, and chords relative to capo. ***

G:   320033
G6:  320030
Dsus2: 00023x / 000230

About the chords, the voicings of G, G6 and Dsus2 are all altered from the "normal" way
playing them, but I really think these sound better and closer to the song. The variant of Dsus2chord
can be chosen depending on whether you play with the song in the speakers or not... =)

In the last line of the chorus, the G6 is played as a quick transition chord, just one beat.

Optional in the bridge: the keyboard strings keep the Em until just before the change to
so it can also be played without the G.

Em G Am C D (repeated 3 times)

---Verse 1:
Em                  G              Am           C    D
D' you breathe the name of your saviour in your hour of need
Em              G            Am               C      D
N' taste the blame if the flavour should remind you of greed

---Bridge 1: (played as verse)
    Em              (G)          Am                 C       D
Of implication, insinuation, and ill will 'til you cannot lie still
    Em               (G)                Am          C        D
In all this turmoil before red cape and foil come closing in for a kill

Em             Dsus2
Come feed the rain
'Cause i'm thirsty for your love
 Am            G                 Em
Dancing underneath the skies of lust
Yeah feed the rain
'Cause without your love my life
        Am                G6        C
Ain't nothing but this carnival of rust
Am          G6 Em

---Instrumental (played as verse)

---Verse 2:
It's all a game avoiding failure when true colors will bleed
All in the name of misbehavior and the things we don't need

---Bridge 2:
I lust for after no disaster can touch, touch us anymore
And more than ever I hope to never fall where enough is not the same it was before

---Chorus, repeated two times (with the last line of the first chorus as follows):
        Am                G6        Em
Ain't nothing but this carnival of rust

---Middle eight (played as second chorus - that is; twice, with the same change in the
line of the first repetition):
Dont walk away
Dont walk away
When the world is burning
Dont walk away
Dont walk away
When the heart is yearning

Em G Am C D

I know it isn't. I've seen how he plays it further down the neck. But it's the same chords nevertheless... Or, what i think is the right chords... =)

Bsus7 should be a D, among other.
