Hey, all. This is my first tab, but I'm a music student who plays a lot of stuff by ear,
I think it'll be decent. -- I was really frustrated to find that NO ONE had posted any
or chords of this song, so I sat down and did it myself. It's not exact, but it'll get 
really, really close.

Feel free to hit me up for any questions. (thatlizgirl@gmail.com)

Enjoy!

v = the next note is lower
^ = the next note is higher
~ = trill

m = minor
M = major
6 = first inversion; third of the chord in the bass
6/4 = second inversion; fifth of the chord in the bass

VERSES:

     Cm
I am out here studying stones
           Bb
Trying to learn to be less alive
       Ab
Using all of my will
       Bb
To keep very still
       Cm           Cm (add9)
Still even on the inside

          Cm
I've cut all of the pertinent wires
      Bb
So my eyes can't make that connection
     Ab
I am holding my breath
     Bb
I am feigning my death
     Cm                  Cm(add9)
When I'm looking in your direction

~~~


        EbM
'Course numb is an old hat
          DbM
Old as my oldest memories
    Ab
See that one's my mother
    Bb
And that one's my father
         Cm                    Cm(add9)
And that one in the hat, that's me


       EbM
It's a skill I'd hoped to abandon
       Bb?
When I got out on the open road
             Fm?
But any more pent up emotion
       Bb?              Cm(add9)
And I think I'm gonna explode

~~~
              Cm                  Cm(add9)
There's never been an endeavor so strange
              Bb
As trying to slow the blood in my veins
   Ab
To keep my face blank
     Bb
As a stone that just sank
      Cm             Cm(add9)
Until not a ripple remains


     Cm                  Cm(add9)
I am high above the tree line
        Bb
Sitting cross legged on the ground
     Ab
When all of the forbidden fruit
    Bb
has fallen and rotted
Cm                    Cm(add9)
That's when I'm gonna come down

~~~

        EbM
'Course numb is an old hat
          DbM
Old as my oldest memories
    Ab
See that one's my mother
    Bb
And that one's my father
         Cm                    Cm(add9)
And that one in the hat, that's me


       EbM
It's a skill I'd hoped to abandon
       Bb?
When I got out on the open road
             Fm?
But any more pent up emotion
       Bb?              Cm(add9)
And I think I'm gonna explode

END ON:

Cm(add9)
