Tuning: BADGBe (DROP B) not 7th fret B

NOTE!

Sorry about the tuning, it's the best way I could figure it out
that I was satisfied with........ It sounds good.

The Chords are (FUCKING) hard. So just bear with me. I can play it
fine it just takes practice.

USE YOUR PINKY!!!!!!

And I swear it sounds exactly like the song

Verse I:

Most of all the world is a place where parts of holes are described

   Esus2        F#                     G#sus2               Bsus2

within an overarching paradigm of

clarity and accuracy, the context of which makes possible the

B|-2--------4-------------7----------------------9---------------|
   C#sus4   D#sus4        F#sus2                 G#sus2

underlying sense of the way it all fits together

despite our corrective tendancy not to conceive of it as such

B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-6-------------------4--------------------2-------------1------|
A|-4-------------------2--------------------4-------------2------|

   F#sus2       Esus2                  C#m               Bsus2

NOTE: This is the chord progression for basically the entire song
till the end.

REST OF SONG WITH CHORDS:

    Esus2          F#
but then again the world without end

     G#sus2                Bsus2
is a place where souls are combined

                                       C#sus4
but with an overbearing feeling of disparity,

   D#sus4            F#sus2    G#sus2
disorderliness to ignore is impossible

 
without getting oneslef into all kinds of trouble

    F#sus2           Esus2                  C#m
despite one's best intentions not to get entangled 

            B
with it so much


Esus2  F#sus2  G#sus2  Bsus2
                              and meanwhile the 

                     C#sus4  D#sus4
statues are bleeding green 

    F#sus2      G#sus2
and others are saying things much better 

                  F#sus2    Esus2       C#m          B
than we ever could as the quiet becomes suddenly verbose

==================================================
THE REST OF THE SONG IS THE SAME CHORD PROGRESSION
==================================================

and the hail is heralding the size of nickles,
and the street corners are gnashing together
like gears inside the head 
of some omnicient engineer
and downward flows the garnered wisdom
that has never died

==================================
THAT ONE REALLY COOL RIFF YOU HEAR
==================================

This is actually finger tapping on bass but it sounds
okay on guitar.

when finally we opened the box
we couldn't find any rules
our heads were reeling with a glut of possibilities,
contingencies
but with ever increasing faith 
we decided to go ahead and just ingnore them
despite tremendous pressure to capitulate and fade

so instead we went ahead
to fabricate a catalog
of unstable elements
and modicums
and particles with non-zero total strangeness
for brief moments which amount 
to nothing more than tiny fragments of a finger snap

(COOL RIFF)

and meanwhile we're furiously sleeping green
and the map has started tearing along it's creases
due to overuse
when in reality, it's never needed folds

and the air's witholding the sound
of its wellspring,
and our heads are approacing a density
reminiscient of the connectivity 
of the center of the sun
and therein lies the garnered wisdom
that has never died

(Keep playing the last part of the COOL RIFF for like 4 bars)

The outro is just the normal verse chord progression with:

expectation leads to disappointment
if we don't expect something big, huge, and exciting
usually, uh
i dont know, it's just not as, yeah


| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note


P.S.

Again I'm sorry for the hard to understand tab. This song
is hard to play so don't feel bad if you can only play the
chords.
