There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
These are just the basic chords if you want to see something quick for
reference or do an acoustic version. For the lead, check out the other
tab here on UG. Just move everything a fret up because that one is written
in standard tuning. The lyrics here are just what I could make out
because there's no official lyric sheet or anything.

Tuning: half-step down

Am C x2

Am               C
I was a lid on a house we barely speak of
Am                   C
Folded again I could see myself inside
    Am                 C
And I was amazed how a God could know my first name
    Am                     C
And you were amazed at the difference in my speech 2, 3, 4

Am C

   Am                        C
So what of your words, did I know you would deceive me?
    Am                  C
And one better in for a calmness in my side
   Am                  C
So I made a way from a top east fractioned godspeed
   Am                   C
And what a debate do you still know my full name

Dm F Am 
Dm F C

    Am                                             C
And I was the one that decided to light you on fire
    Am                                                      C
And you were a tree with a root that was wrapped in my brain
   Am                                                    C
So build me a sign make me know that you speak of a light
    Am                                                       C
How dirty you plead, dirty you plead, dirty you plead, please

Dm                                      F                   Am                             
You know how you thought I ditched your house, I'm faking causes
Dm                             F                 C
And I needn't a word I am the saddest version yet
Dm                            F                 Am
So what is the price I pay to be this wrong and stop one?
Dm                            F               C
I was the man that claimed to see but now I'm not

Am C x2

Am                 C
I am afraid of the good and bad beneath me
   Am                     C
So give me a sign for the angels on my feet
Am                 C
I was a man yeah I swear I was a man
   Am                    C
So keep me alive for the angels in my feet

      Am               C
Cause I am a way for a man to rid his skin clean
   Am                     C
So send me a sign for the ones who need my seed 

Dm F Am 
Dm F C

Dm         F                    Am
And I had a dream I killed our families
Dm               F                      C
And you were the one I hoped you'd blame
Dm           F               Am
And I felt a baby in your stomach
Dm            F                     C
I knew who he was but he had no name
