"The Handshake"

This is a definitely correct, just play and listen for yourself.  
I put the chords over the lyrics exactly how they should be.  
It is important to note that this song relies heavily on bass, 
and therefore you need to look at this tab while you listen and 
play along in order to play it correctly.

Intro:
   |------------------- 3x -------------------|
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------0--2--0-------------------------------------------------|
A|--------0----0--2----------------2----0-2-0--------------------------------|
E|--0--3------------------------------------------------0--3-----------------|

A                  G
I just shook the handshake
G                  D
I just sealed the deal
A                 G
I'll try not to let them
G                         D
Take everything they can steal
A              G
People always told me
G                  D
Don't forget your roots
A             G                               D
I know I can feel them underneath my leather boots

G   G/F#      Em           A           D              A      Bm
You toss all the mornings lost to the clouds and you watch it go
    G          G/F#            Em        A         D             A    Bm    
Your fairweather friends on a parachute binge get lost when the wind blows
     G                       A
The handshake's stuck on the tip of my tongue
     Bm
It tastes like death but it looks like fun


Play this part with bar chords:

B
I was a loner
            E       D#   G#     B
I was just waiting by myself
  D
When you, warped temptress
                   A            B
Rose to bring me happiness and wealth
       E            D#            D              C#
Black tears, black smile, black credit cards and shoes
A
You can call all the people you want
          E               F#
But it's you who's being used
B
Under your black eyes, honey
E        D#         G#     B
Right beneath your nose
 D
A curse on all creation
       A                B
Every single thing you knew
       E            D#           D             C#
White smoke, white light, white marble on the floor
A                                               E                    F#
It would only take a few seconds of darkness to figure out what's in store

Little girl
  G  G/F#   Em        A             D                A     Bm
Mmm you convince yourself that you want it, but you don't know
   G        G/F#      Em        A              D              A    Bm
You keep on trying to wash the blood from your hands, but it won't go
G                    A
We're gonna keep you on the run
Bm
We got the handshake under our tongue
We got the handshake under our tongue
We got the handshake under our tongue
We got the handshake under our tongue
We got the handshake x15
