Lost in a Crowd -- Fantastic Negrito

This is the acoustic version of the song performed on Empire and Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Standard tuning, 6/4 time.

Whenever you see chord names above the tab, don't get too caught up in exactly what strings are being played 
when. Xavier changes it up and those details are likely improved anyway. Speaking of details, I didn't include
them all -- tab's long enough as is. Listen and emulate if you want more.

/*
Style Notes:
It's so stylish, you don't even use a pick. Use your thumb to strum throughout. Strum down on the beats (1 2
3) and up on the "ands" (+ + +) -- since it's with your thumb the up-beats will be naturally emphasized a
little (since you hit them with your nail). For [Interlude Part 1], however, strum down with the nails of your
fingers to give it more power.
Have fun with it! I'm not saying that to be nice, it's actually required to play this song right!

[Chorus A]
You stand in a line wait for your
turn, don't you cry. They make the
best dream prize. You took that
money, now you die. Feel -ings of
rage, broken bones. Lost in a
crowd, now you're on your own. This is your
life, now you're grown. There's no to-
morrow, it's here, it's on.
