Neurosis - Away

Notes: dots (.) represent 1/8 note markers. Numbers in parentheses ()
indicate notes held from a previous measure. The second half of this song
gets tricky with changing time signatures, which I've notated to the left of
each staff. It's almost free time, but structured very well into alternating
4/4 and 5/4 measures. Enjoy.

Main clean part (slowly):

   .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .

Play several times, then:

Woman's voice (I never heard this before transcribing this song): "As
each hour passes, our shadows grow taller, and the darkness expands
until the light of healing disappears completely. And we become our
shadows. And we become our shadows. And we become our shadows. And we
become our shadows."

Play 3 times, then this with heavy distortion:

                                        "Awaaaaaay!"

     .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .     .


Repeat 16 times, then hold last note for two measures (4/4 + 5/4).


Lyrics:

Cease this long, long rest
Wake and risk a foul weakness to live
When it all comes down
Watch the smoke and bury the past again
Sit and think what will come
Raise your fears and cast them all away
