S.O.S. - Matt Skiba - Demos
Standard Tuning (EADGBe)
Tabbed by Jack Cookson (Torn Asunder)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
These are the chords for Matt Skiba's new song 'S.O.S.' which is on his new
upcoming solo album 'Demos' which is due to be out this August. Please be 
aware I don't know the definite lyrics so I'm just putting down what I can
hear. If you have any corrections, I'll be more than happy to put update the
tab with them. I've indicated the lines I'm not sure on with a '(?)'.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Intro: E5 x16
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verse 1:
       E5                          A5 
Such a shame, what became of your broken heart
        C#5                    B5
To this day it remains hanging in the dark
       E5                      A5
I'm afraid and ashamed of the things she said
       C#5                 B5
Never been so alive never felt more dead


Pre-chorus:
          E5                            B5
And these days, all this pain, but the water's red (?)
       C#5                       A5
I entertain these insane visions in my head
           E5                       B5
I fell in love just above all the paper trails (?)
        C#5                           A5                  B5       
While the boat swims in circles and I sink in sales (?)


Chorus:
B5  E5
S.O.S. please rescue me
              A5                 B5
You're out of breath, I'm out of steam
           E5
I hold you safely in my heart (?)
             A5              B5
Our love has torn this ship apart
       Bmaj     E5
Please rescue me

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
E5 x8
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verse 3:
       E5                              A5
It's a crime, all this time we've been lost for words
        C#5                    B5
Lost at sea, we believed everything we heard
          E5                      A5 
For last night, I was riding the ocean blue
        C#5                    B5
Now I swim with the fishes and sink with you


Pre-chorus:
          E5                            B5
And these days, all this pain, but the water's red (?)
       C#5                       A5
I entertain these insane visions in my head
           E5                       B5
I fell in love just above all the paper trails (?)
          C#5                           A5                  B5       
While the boat swims in circles and I sink in sales (?)


Chorus:
B5   E5
S.O.S. please rescue me
              A5                 B5
You're out of breath, I'm out of steam
           E5
I hold you safely in my heart (?)
             A5              B5
Our love has torn this ship apart

B5  E5
S.O.S come rescue me
       A5         B5
Losing all but surviving (?)  
          E5              
I need a hand to save my soul (?)
           A5                 B5
To pull me from this all time hole (?)

Bridge: 
       B5         A5      B5     A5
Rescue me, rescue me
       B5    A5
Rescue me
       B5  A5  Bmaj
Rescue me

                                      Important Note:
 B5
--------------------|  This riff is also played over the final chorus, but
--------------------|  if you don't have a second guitarist handy, just play
-11-11-11-11-11-11--|  interlude chords displayed above, they'll sound okay
-x--x--x--x--x--x---|  on their own, it's just Matt likes to make a lot of
-9--9--9--9--9--9---|  songs with two guitar tracks for more melodic beef
--------------------|  I guess.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final chorus:

These aren't the right lyrics, but I really can't make out what he's
singing, the chords are right though. If you have any idea what they are just
say in a comment, though probably we'll find out the exact lyrics when the
album is released.


B5  E5
S.O.S. please rescue me
              A5                 B5
You're out of breath, I'm out of steam
           E5
I hold you safely in my heart
             A5              B5
Our love has torn this ship apart
       Bmaj     E5
Please rescue me
