[Verse]
E5   Eb5/E      B   
The drum wakes up. 
E5   Eb5/E   A 
He'll have a real black eye this time.
E5   Eb5/E   B
Hungover dream. 
E5   Eb5/E     A
He hung around too long last night.
E5   Eb5/E      B
The drum gets up. 
E5   Eb5/E  A
How will he feel about this one?
E5   Eb5/E        B 
The dream throws up.
E5   Eb5/E   A 
(He didn't feel too good this time.) 


[Chorus]
E       B
He's got it all. 
E       A
He's got it figured out.
E          B
Dream in the hall, 
E          A
back in the hospital.
E       B 
I'm not concerned. 
E           A
He'll get it straight this time –
A         B 
And if he doesn't, fuck it –

[Verse] (Palm Muted)
E5   Eb5/E    B
The gun goes off. 
E5   Eb5/E       A
He's always off about something.
E5   Eb5/E      B 
The drum just nods: 
E5   Eb5/E      A
the drum ain't listening at all.
E5   Eb5/E      B 
The drum gets drunk, 
E5   Eb5/E           A
the drum reads James Joyce in the drunk.
E5   Eb5/E       B 
The dream falls down. 
E5   Eb5/E       A
The drum's face breaks the dreams fall. 


[Chorus]
E     B
He don't have shit. 
E      A              
He's learned to live with it.
E         B 
The drum's in debt – 
E     A
you owe me don't forget –
E     B
That 20 bucks, 
E        A                  A         B
interest and moral support – and if you don't I swear –

A young man slowly pulled apart by separate poles of gravity.

[Verse]
E5   Eb5/E     B
The drum goes forth. 
E5   Eb5/E     A
He's got his flag unfurled or something.
E5   Eb5/E      B 
The drum won't stop,
E5   Eb5/E       A
the drum's a menace to the public.


[Chorus]
E        B 
Hold your drum high.
E     A
The drum is stoned again.
E        B
Don't wake him up, 
E        A
he'll just start talking.
E      B 
The drum is dead.
E       A
Long live the drum.
E      B 
The drum is dead.
E       A
Long live the drum.
E      B 
The drum is dead.
E       A
Long live the drum.
A                    B
And I - And I am his creator –

When you get to the last chorus he plays the low E i.e. the normal E chord and he does this until the end of the song too!

Great tab! Love this song and this acoustic version better than his studio version tbh.

Also, the tab for the picked intro is missing a couple notes here and there but it's quite easy to figure out what it's missing so otherwise great job on this tab!

On the last four lines of the bridge he starts strumming again.
