There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is how I play the song. I'll mostly be following Dave's voice. Noah's voice will be in [brackets.]
Suggestions and corrections welcome!

Mountains in Kauai, Make me feel so lowly, Cower at their power, Vertical I like
Dizzy under buildings, Bending like their willing, Is it what I’m seeing, Vertical is fright
F                                          G                                           F
[Hard to gain perspective, Often it’s perplexing, Reaching for a record, Vertical is sight,]
F                                       G                                            F
[Hanging on a pylon, Dropping from a million, Jumping hill to hill on, Vertical is height]
F                                               G
People live above you, Postured like a totem, Runnin’ up some stairs oh, Vertical is might
F                                               G
Stalling on a nose and, Places to propose in, Seeing everything from, Vertical is light
F                                                        G
Diamonds of the sky on, Black and endless background, Reaching out to grab them, Vertical at night
F                                    G
My imagination, Reaches to forever, Like an endless tower, So vertical I write

F#m           G                A
So high and still it sends a feeling through me
(Oh up above me falling over)
[Suddenly not vertical]
E                   D                  C#m
Breathe in the the air goes through a system that is
(down below me working steady)
[Weary when it’s vertical]
F#m        G                A
A tree we are with limbs extending to the sun
(Single holly finches calling)
[Very lovely vertical]
E               D            A
Come find me floating up if you should find me gone
(Nice and breezy spirits easy)
[And did you hear a child say?]

My feet can't cross the parking lot
The parking lot is way too hot
[Then everything went vertical]

    Bm      A       G
For me, for me, for me
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

F                                                    G
At the tips of cities, Birds are tracing columns, Windows bend in wind, Vertical in flight
F                                             G
Down below a statue, People stand in poses, Making good impressions, Vertical delights
F                                                G
Lying on a trunk, And waiting to be dreaming, Startled by a thumpin, Vertical insight
F                                                  G
Lots of people thinkin, Thinking about falling, Nothing but a rope so, Vertical hold tight

F#m            G                   A
Sometimes you feel the pressure dropping on you
(Heavy folders daring soldiers)
[Crashing from the vertical]
E            D               C#m
I start to wonder does this system matter?
(Crumbling boulder couldn’t hold her)
[Only if it’s vertical]
F#m       G                     A
Even in leaves some creatures build themselves a home
(Ancient maples empty stables)
[Can’t always be vertical]
E        D                   A
Lifted above the din their worlds a peaceful dome
(Natures diet finding quiet)
[They don’t hear the child say]

My feet can’t cross the parking lot
The parking lot is way too hot
[The everything went vertical]

       D    Am      G      Am
The parking lot is way too hot
[The everything went vertical]
