			     CLEANSE SONG - Bright Eyes
Tabbed by: Totoralex
Email: totoralexATgmailDOTcom

This song is pretty simple to play, you just have to use open chords through the whole song.

Tuning: EADGBe

D			 D7	          G	       D
Hear the chimes, did you know that the wind when it blows
      G		  D	  		A
It is older than Rome and all of this sorrow
	D   D7		     G	       D
See the new Pyramids down in old Manhattan
	  G	       D		A
From the roof of a friend I watched an empire ending
Bm			    D
Heard it loud and long, the river's song
G		   A
Time marching on, to a mad man's drum

D D7 G D G D A

D			   D7
Don't forget what you've learned
G		   D
All you give is returned
      G		    D
And if life seems absurd
What you need is some laughter
	D	  D7
And a season to sleep
	G		D
And a place to get clean
	G	D
Maybe Los Angeles
Somewhere no one's expecting

On a detox walk
Over Glendale Park
GOver sidewalk chalk
G		     D
Some rope read "start over"

So I muffle my scream
On an Oxnard beach
G	 F#		     Bm         A
Full of fever dreams that scare me sober
Into saltless dinners

D D7 G D G D A

D			 D7	   G			D
Take the fruit from the tree, break the skin with your teeth
	G	D	   A
Is it bitter or sweet all depends on your timing
D		   D7
Like a meeting of chance
	  G		 D
With the train station glance
	G		D	A
Many lifetimes have passed in a instant reminded
Of a millstone house in a seaside town
G					D
When your heart gave out in a mission bed
So your wife gave birth to a funeral dirge
     F#			 Bm	  A
You woke up purged as a wailing infant
In Krug Thep, Thailand

D D7 G D G D A

D D7 G D G D A

D			 D7	          G	       D
Hear the chimes, did you know that the wind when it blows
      G		  D	  		A
It is older than Rome and all of this sorrow

D D7 G D G D G D

not a big deal and i dont know if you can edit it but the last line should be "and our joy and our sorrow" instead of "and all of this sorrow."

A few additional corrections to the lyrics. It's important for this kind of music haha.

"Heard it loud and long the river's Om"

"On a detox walk through a Glendale Park over sidewalk chalk
Someone wrote in red, "start over"
So I muffled my scream on an Oxnard beach
Full of fever dreams that scare you sober
Into salt-less dinners"
