Tuning: DADF#AD

Based off of Joe's live part. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LI6_F3_yFZg
but plays pretty close to the album version, other then being a bit more layered and the final riff is played
right till the end.

Also, he sometimes only plucks the low and high e strings together, 
instead of strumming out the full main chord

[Intro + Verse1]
We can’t lose touch but we can let go
Blue and white gun made from Lego
All the vowels vow to hold your name
Keep your estate clean of me
I’ve pillowed you so many times this week
Close eyes, open, close again, forget and fall asleep

Scattered truths, bewildered beast boohoos
We have our weight: ten thousand ladybirds
All the vowels vow to guard your name
Keep your estate clean, happy
