                         Human Lottery - Echolyn
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: RadicalMadness (mellocellist3)
E-mail: mello.cellist34@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Note: This is the first Echolyn song tab ever (on this website at least).
This one is very tough and goes extremely fast.

There are only 2 guitar parts but I show three because there are different effects between 3 parts.

Guitar 1 has a slight bit of a distortion, sounds like a typical electric guitar.

Guitar 2 is basically a copy of guitar 1 just used to play extra notes and such while the first guitar is
being played.

Guitar 3 has more of a electronic sound more synthetic, sounds similar to the keyboard but is NOT the keyboard.
I only tabbed out the guitar part not the keyboard part-there is a difference.

Some parts of the song have no guitar just keyboard and drums so I added in the chords to play if you need them.

Intro/Outro:

B|--------------------------|
G|--9--7--5--7--9--7--5--4--|  before lyrics (it's those chords ^ but individual notes.)
D|--------------------------|  Then, keyboard comes in with single notes
A|--------------------------|
E|--------------------------|

Am                              Em
We bought into the promise of a better, greener better day

     Dm                     C                   B
That 7 years would buy us a piece of tomorrow's dream

   Am                              Em
We took it all for granted we were always to be rich

         Dm                   C                B
We could own what we made but owe more than we make

Am                     F#m     
So, brother, could you spare a dime

A                        Am                E
For a cup of coffee or a smoke to pass the time

          Am               Dm     
While I'm standing in this God-forsaken line

   Am               Dm          Em
Of human lottery to shine, just shine

Chorus:
                                               Fill 1
Dm       Em    Am   C          Dm    Em     Am(short)
Mad with the impossible out of chaos is our dream
                                                (just keyboard this time)
Dm  Em    Am  C             Dm   Em          Am(short)
Too heavy for wings we will sink beneath its weight

[Verse chords]
Used to be important in a white collar job
Used to make good money, now I'm lucky getting by
My wife is almost frantic, I'm too old for other work
If you can't do something for me, I'm bound to kill myself

[Pre-Chorus Chords]
Brother, it's not like me to ask
But I'm running short of everything
And nothing coming fast
When work is all I really need
From this God-forsaken line to shine, just shine
