(one string at a time)

G                    Bm                          Am
At the center of the world there's a statue of a girl
                       C           D               G
She is standing near a well with a bucket bare and dry
                             Bm                          Am
I went and looked her in the eyes and she turned me into sand
                           C                  D           G
This clumsy form that I despise, it scattered easy in her hand

                       Bm                          Am
It came to rest upon a beach with a million others there
                          C                          D             G
We sat and waited for the sea to stretch out so that we could disappear
                        Bm                          Am
Into the endlessness of blue into the horror of the truth
                             C                  D                Em
See, we are far less than we knew, yeah, we are far less than we knew

Em                        C
But we knew what we could taste
Em
Girls found honey to drench our hands
                               B
The men cut marble to mark our graves

B
Said we'll need something to

(mostly the lower notes for this part)

G
remind us of
                           B
All the sweetness that has passed through us
                                   Em
The priests dressed children for a choir
                             B
But found no joy in what was sung
B   C       D   D G
The funeral had begun

G                    Bm                              Am
In the middle of the day when you drive home to your place
                             C                 D                       G
From that job that makes you sleep back to the thoughts that keep you awake
                                                       Bm                                
 Am
Long after night has come to claim any light that still remains
                     C              D
In the corner of the frame


(lower notes again for this part)

                         G
that you put around her face

    Bm
Two pills just weren't enough
    Am
The alarm clock's going off but you're not waking up
          C                                       D
This isnt happening happening happening happening happening
      G
It is

end riff (something like this)

Aside from the intro this is perfect. The intro tab on this site is very good too.
