Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This song is in standard tuning in the demo, and tuned a half step down when 
played live. (pretty accurate, definitely not perfect)

(All the chords in this section are palm muted power chords)

         F             C
all that music in your mouth
       G               Am
rivers rushing at your teeth
         Bb                   F
cresting waves through wading valleys
        Bb            F
flooded language tributaries
            Bb    F    C/G
connect and cover over me
        F                C
tensing jaw & cork screw eyelids
          G                Am
as if you couldn't bare to see
         Bb            F
all that water pouring from you
           Bb                F
collecting clouds inside the ballroom
     Bb     F         C/G       Bb
over people who don't know you
                
but darling i do

On 'do', begin this riff:

(Return to palm-muted power chords)
               F                     C
you trance yourself back towards the city
          G              Am
blood not moving to your feet
                Bb            F
your foot falls tentative and muffled
    Bb             F
automatic listless shuffle
              Bb      F          C/G     
your sidewalk scatter brain, cry uncle
              F                 C   
you paint yourself back in your corner
             G            Am
and look for her on your t.v.
            Bb             F   
it's friday night and i am hungry
      Bb               F
for a hand, a mouth, a body
         Bb       F       C/G   Bb
a love i wouldn't have to carry

               F/Bb
a stitch in my mouth
                Dm
and i'm untying now
           F/Bb
a concrete canal
                 Dm   G A
in a bomb border town


(return to palm muted power chords again)

   Bb          Am
an echo in the rafters
          Dm              G
reminding you there was a sound
    (D)|-7-----5---3-| Dm
but you killed her in  waves
             C                    F   C
she stayed a steam to hiss at you now


(Stop palm muting here)

                 Bb   F
he killed her in waves
               Am     Dm
but that's not today


(back to palm muting again)

                            Dm
so you breathe through your mouth
                     Bb
try to calm yourself down
                  F
and keep what you found
                 A
and shout it out loud


(And stop palm muting again)

                  Dm
she can hover and hurt
               Bb
or dissolve to dirt
                   F   A
some prayer in you mouth
                     G
and she might stay a steam
              C
so get to the beams
                   F    A
let you figure her out

G, Dm, Bb, F, Bb, F, Bb, C/G, C7, F
