(Ok, here's how the riffs go with the song)
[Riff B]
My eyes seek reality 
My fingers seek my veins 
[Riff B]
Theres a dog at your back step 
He must come in from the rain 
[Riff C]
I fall cause I let go 
The net below has rot away 
[Riff C]
So my eyes seek reality 
And my fingers seek my veins 
[Riff D]
The trash fire is warm 
But nowhere safe from the storm 
[Riff E]
And I can't bare to see 
What I've let me be 
So wicked and worn 
[Riff D]
So as I write to you 
Of what is done and to do 
[Riff E]
Maybe you'll understand 
And won't cry for this man 
'Cause low man is due 
Please forgive me 
[Riff F]
My eyes seek reality 
My fingers feel for faith 
[Riff F]
Touch clean with a dirty hand 
I touched the clean to the waste 
[Riff D]
The trash fire is warm 
But nowhere safe from the storm 
[Riff E]
And I can't bare to see 
What I've let me be 
So wicked and worn 
[Riff D]
So as I write to you 
Of what is done and to do 
[Riff E]
Maybe you'll understand 
And won't cry for this man 
'Cause low man is due 
Please forgive me 
Please forgive me 
Please forgive me 
[Riff G]
[Riff G]
So low the sky is all I see 
[Riff G]
All I want from you is forgive me 
[Riff G]
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain 
[Riff G]
Though he just wants right back out again 
[Riff F]
And I cry, to the alley way 
Confess all to the rain 
[Riff F]
But I lie, lie straight to the mirror 
The one I've broken, to match my face
[Riff D]
The trash fire is warm 
But nowhere safe from the storm 
[Riff E]
And I can't bare to see 
What I've let me be 
So wicked and worn 
[Riff D]
So as I write to you (yeah) 
Of what is done and to do (yeah) 
[Riff E]
Maybe you'll understand 
And won't cry for this man 
'Cause low man is due 
Please forgive me 
Please forgive me 
[Riff G]
[Riff G]
So low the sky is all I see 
[Riff G]
All I want from you is forgive me 
[Riff G]
So you bring this poor dog in from the rain 
[Riff G]
Though he just wants right back out again 
[Riff B]
My eyes seek reality 
My fingers seek my veins
