So since there as so few tabs out there from Flying Colors, I decided to spend the night 
tabbing this little beast...
definitely one of the best songs off this album (aren't they all?) The songs is heavily 
arpeggiated on the first verses,
which I of course did not tab due to laziness... although the chords are included, maybe 
one day the actual arpeggios
will be tabbed! Timing may not be 100% exact, so be sure to listen to the song while learning.

Feel free to make any corrections in the comments section below!

I like to play these next chords as power chords, although for arpeggio reasons, the 
full chord is shown.

Bb        Gm           Dm
Rage is a game for the lonely
Bb       Gm            F      C
War is a front for our greed
Bb           Gm         Dm
Love makes a way but it only
Bb             Gm           F
Heals when we stay while we bleed


     C              B       Am   Gm
It's better than walking away
     Am             B       C     D
It's better than walking away
C          B        Am     B
So many reasons to stay


So walk in and wait for it all
