NB.There is a second guitar part, it plays not 2 octaves higher but plays high,
quiet notes that come down from high up in harmony with the main riff

(Keep repeated. Later on the A5 and C5 chords are palm-muted.)
Morning always seems too stale to justify
Lament blossoms, hours minutes of our lives
Broken thoughts run through your empty mind
At least a beaten dog knows how to lie
[CHORUS]
G5              D5      F5        C5    B5
I feel like I'm missing pieces of sleep,
G5        D5         F5       C5    B5
My memory fades to a pale landscape,
G5            D5       F5       C5    B5
You were an extinction a desert heat,
G5         D5   F5         C5    B5
A blind illness of my anxiety.
[VERSE 2]
Endless hours in bed, no peace, in this mind
No one knows the hell where innocence dies
Fragments crawling like cobwebs on stone
Blows away the safety only a sleeping pill knows
 
REPEAT CHORUS
