Dm and Am are the simplest and easiest chords to play for this song that work. However playing Dm and Am 
as bar chords on the fifth fret sounds best. Use A+sus4 (Dm) and E+sus4 (Am) for the closest sound to 
the original. 


[VERSE]
Dm                              Am
Just like an elephant memory, he comes and never fades
   Dm                                     Am
she turned his stomach upside down as she played the queen of spades
    Dm                                  Am
They pistol-whipped an outcome tossed a coin and called a draw
      Dm                                 Am
Threw a blanket on a flight of stairs and fasted up his jaw


[CHORUS]
           Dm
We bang to break the drum
           Am
We rub the shine, we shine the light
            Dm
We light the fuse, the fuse the powder
          Am
Cause the powder makes it right
           Dm
We bang to break the shed
            Am
We shed the skin, we skin the bear
            Dm
We bear the fall, we fall the towers
           Am
Cause the towers brings me there


[VERSE]
Dm                         Am
The petals fall forever on Picadilly Lane
        Dm                                   Am
And the children take their medicine as they stand to watch the rain
   Dm                                   Am
The wagon wheels are made of cheese, the moon is made from grass
      Dm                                 Am
And the wicker drinks the water where the preacher screams for mass


[CHORUS]
           Dm
We bang to break the drum
           Am
We rub the shine, we shine the light
            Dm
We light the fuse, the fuse the powder
          Am
Cause the powder makes it right
           Dm
We bang to break the shed
            Am
We shed the skin, we skin the bear
            Dm
We bear the fall, we fall the towers
           Am
Cause the towers brings me there


[VERSE]
Dm                                 Am
Nothing about us is flawless as the sirens in her mind
   Dm                       Am
He broke apart her diary to judge and defile
    Dm                             Am
The carnival was sleeping when the doves had gotten free
    Dm                             Am
The treasure of the secret love is swallowing the key


[CHORUS]
           Dm
We bang to break the drum
           Am
We rub the shine, we shine the light
            Dm
We light the fuse, the fuse the powder
          Am
Cause the powder makes it right
           Dm
We bang to break the shed
            Am
We shed the skin, we skin the bear
            Dm
We bear the fall, we fall the towers
           Am
Cause the towers brings me there


[VERSE]
  Dm                                Am
The dead are all we have to set the worthiness of life
   Dm                              Am
The angels smoke about the bridges sharpening the knife
    Dm                            Am
The sedum was a sucker-punch from Michael to the Pope
    Dm                           Am
The anti-mute wear muzzles and a necklace cut from rope


[CHORUS]
           Dm
We bang to break the drum
           Am
We rub the shine, we shine the light
            Dm
We light the fuse, the fuse the powder
          Am
Cause the powder makes it right
           Dm
We bang to break the shed
            Am
We shed the skin, we skin the bear
            Dm
We bear the fall, we fall the towers
           Am
Cause the towers brings me there


[VERSE]
   Dm                         Am
The Amish are patrolling over under angry stars
   Dm                             Am
To the pilgrimage is set by men who stroke guitars
    Dm                       Am
The moon upon the caravan is driving thunderheads
        Dm                                  Am
While the painter sings about his blues and chokes upon his red


[CHORUS]
           Dm
We bang to break the drum
           Am
We rub the shine, we shine the light
            Dm
We light the fuse, the fuse the powder
          Am
Cause the powder makes it right
           Dm
We bang to break the shed
            Am
We shed the skin, we skin the bear
            Dm
We bear the fall, we fall the towers
           Am
Cause the towers brings me there
