Artist: 3
Song:   The Barrier
Album:  The Ghost You Gave to Me (c)2010

Key: G major
Tuning: Standard

Intro: (the C chord here is less a C chord and more of a softly fingerpicked
       0-2 hammer-on on the D string. I use the side of my thumb to imitate
       Joey Eppard's weird string attack.)

  G  C  G

  G  C  G

Verse 1:

  G                   C   G         G           C      G
  I don't know your name      Did I dream you tonight?

        Em                     A                        D
  Did I draw the heavens down? Drape my arms around? An angel in flight?

          G                  C   G           G           C   G
  Looking like you love me still      As you kill me goodbye

                Em                     A                     D
  As you're parachuting to the ground, watching me go down

   D7                                     G   C   G
  Abandoned in flight      You left me to die

Chorus

                 Dsus2
    Somehow, the chiming of shadows reminds me of you

        C                       Em 
    The haunted and hollow, the light passing through

        Dsus2
    The sound of your sorrow on the echoes of blue

           C                         Em
    Down a wind water tunnel, at the turn of a screw

          A                             D                D7
    Doing all that you can do to be the wall I'm walking through

Verse 2:

  G                C    G         G           C      G
  Whispers in the dark      Can I steal you tonight?

           Em                         A
  From the wreckage piled high, we'll climb back to the sky

  D                            D7                G   C   G
  Leap from the ledge, full of faith we can fly

Chorus:

                  Dsus2
    So come on, reanimate, angel, break from your cage

    C                    Em
    Witness the prophecy sprung from the page

        Dsus2
    The moon in your marrow, the smoke on your skin

        C                       Em
    The mask in the mirror, the monster within

            A                       D                 D7
    But the barrier is thin and the room begins to spin

Solo:

    Em    A    C    G

    Em    A    C    D  D7

    G   C   G

Chorus 3:

                            Dsus2
    Don't you know that the war has blown over? We weathered the storm

        C                        Em
    The grass has grown over the graves that we mourn

            Dsus2
    Now the brightness is teeming, the chains slip away

        C                      Em
    The wolf in the wool is no longer at bay

        Dsus2
    The portal is open, the walls disappear

    C                             Em
    Jump through the hoop and the hell out of here

      Dsus2
    A song in a box on wheels we have blown

    C                       Em
    Glides on the back of a snake made of stone

            Dsus2
    Through shadows unfolding and clouds fallen slack

           C                     Em
    At the edge of tomorrow with no turning back

      Dsus2
    Reanimate, angel, break from your cage

    C                    Em
    Witness the prophecy sprung from the page

        Dsus2
    The moon in your marrow, the smoke on your skin

        C                       Em
    The mask in the mirror, the master within

            Dsus2
    Oh, but I've seen your sorrow at the edge of the screen

    C                    Em
    Soften the focus and into a dream

Brief instrumental:

    Dsus2      C    Em

Outro Chorus:

            Dsus2                    C                  Em
    But the barrier is thin, and the room begins to spin

        Dsus2                    C              Em     
    The barrier is thin, and the room begins to spin

        Dsus2                    C                Em
    The moon in your marrow, the smoke on your skin

        Dsus2                   C              Em
    The portal is open, and the kingdom is within

Outro:

  Dsus2      C    Em
  Dsus2      C    Em
  Dsus2      C    Em
  Dsus2      C    Em (repeat to fade)
