Intro: [play into/verse/chorus riff 2x]


Verse 1: [play into/verse/chorus riff 2x]
We salute at the thresh-hold of the North Sea in my mind
And a nod to the boredom that drove me here to face the tide


Post-verse: [play Post-Verse riff 4x]
And I swim, I swim, oh swim


Verse 2:[play into/verse/chorus riff 4x]
Did the toe in the ocean, oh how it hardens and it numbs
The rest of me is a version of man, built to collapse into crumbs
And if I hadn't come now to the coast to disappear
I may have died in a landslide of rocks and hopes and fears


Chorus 1 chords: [and use intro/verse/chorus riff throughout] 
   D               G                D              G
So swim, until you can't see land, swim, until you can't see land
D               G                   A                  G
Swim, until you can't see land, are you a man or you a bag of sand?  [repeat]


Interlude: [play into/verse/chorus riff 4x]


Verse 3 chords:
D           G               D            G
Up to our knees now, do you wait, do you dive?
D                 G                           D                      G
The sea has seen my like before though its my first and perhaps last time
D              G                    D               G
Lets call me a Baptist, call this a drowning of the past
D                  G                  D            G
She's there on the shoreline throwing stones at my back


Chorus 2: [use chorus 1 chords]
So swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Are you a man or you a bag of sand? [repeat]


Interlude: [play into/verse/chorus riff 4x]


Bridge chords:
D                                                       G
And the water is taller than me and the land is marker line
D                                               G
All I am is a body adrift in the water salt and sky


Chorus 3: [use chorus 1 chords]
So swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Swim, until you can't see land
Are you a man or you a bag of sand? [repeat 3x to outro]

End on: D

The Em should be an A chord.

And some of the fills etc are different, they don't all follow the same riff.

Other than that pretty good. 4*

I think you keep 3 on the B string held down throughout the whole riff
