Nothing Is Sound (I recieved a pre-release. I will not send it to you.)
This is quite possibly the best song on the album, and though it is easy,
pay attention to the changes. It is in standard tuning, and all the chords
are open form.
D                     G
Is this the New Year, or just another night?
D                     G
Is this the new fear, or just another fright?
G                Bm             A                  D
Is this the new tear, or just another desperation?

D                       G
Is this the finger, or just another fist?
D                       G
Is this the kingdom, or just a hit-and-miss?
G           Bm            A                 Bm
A misdirection, most of all this desperation.

D
Is this what they call freedom?
A
Is this what you call pain?
Bm                                  G
Is this what they call discontented fame?
D                        A
It'll be a day like this one,
A                       Bm		          
When the world caves in, when the world caves in, 
G                     D
when the world caves in

D                      G
I'm singing this one like a broken piece of glass
D                          G
For broken arms and broken noses in the back
G                Bm             A                 Bm G
Is this the New Year, or just another desperation?

D                           A
You push until you're shoving
A
You bend until you break,
Bm                          G
Do you stand on the broken field where your fathers lay?
D                        A
It'll be a day like this one,
A                       Bm		          
When the world caves in, when the world caves in,
G                      D
when the world caves in

A                      Bm  G
When the world caves in,      
G                      D   A
when the world caves in,   
A                      A Bm G 
when the world caves in

D                               A
There's nothing here worth saving, 
A
There's no one here at all
Bm                         G
Is there any net left that could break our fall? 
D                        A
It'll be a day like this one

A                      Bm            
When the sky falls down, 
Bm                  G                         D
when the hungry and poor and deserted are found.

D                     A
Are you discontented?
A                        Bm
Have you been pushing hard?
Bm                     G
Have you been throwing down this broken house of cards?
D                        A
It'll be a day like this one,
A                        Bm		          
When the world caves in, when the world caves in, 
G                      D G D G
when the world caves in

D                                     G
Is there nothing left now? Nothing left to sing?
D                                            G
Are there any left who haven't kissed the enemy?
G                Bm             A                    Bm G
Is this the New Year, or just another desperation?      Yeah, yeah

D                           A
Does justice ever find you?
A
Do the wicked never lose?
Bm                                               G
Is there any other song to sing besides these blues?
D               A
And nothing is OK, 
A                       Bm		          
Till the world caves in, till the world caves in, 
G                       D
till the world caves in, till the world caves in.
A                       Bm		          
Till the world caves in, till the world caves in, 
G                       D
till the world caves in, till the world caves in.
A                       Bm		          
Till the world caves in, till the world caves in, 
G                    D
till the world caves in,

nothing like the song. the song is basically finger picking on the twelve fret and not just strumming open chords.

At the concert he did pick somewhere up near the 12th fret. I couldn't see much because I was far back though.
