...The armoire that you found by the dumpster while visiting your sister. 
It looks fine in a living room where the others you've rescued go to die.
...That old mirror by the bed without much of anything to reflect; 
save for a few holes, a crippled bedpost, shadows that don't move.

[CHORUS]
...Boxes in the basement that were spared from rising waters. 
Discarded blood-stain drum-skin and sticks rest on your mother's mattress.

...I'm home with my own family in tow and everything's the same but different.
...And I'm home again but the devil knows I'm born-again. 
I can't hold these walls up on my own.

how on earth does mike play that bend without stopping his pointer and middle finger? so damn tough

edit: ah, he's using his thumb to hit the notes along the D string, that's how.

SPOT ON!

I was having a really hard time with this bit myself- but definitely one of the most fun and rewarding things to listen to and play. I have applied three approaches that helped me figure this part out for anyone else trying to figure it out.

Firstly- you have to almost rush the progression- if you get all the notes in you might hear actually how the bend fits into place. Second- Keep it steady- this might sound contradictory- but if you watch the vid and read this tab you will see that the bass and general progression is consistent on the 6th 4th and 3rd strings (D,C,G Respectively). Third- don't force the bend- if your finger is on the note and you are playing through it you will hear how you can lightly bend it- this is what gives the song such grace. This technique was used by Bob Dylan on the track 'Buckets of Rain' you may have an easier time if you learn that song first.

Good Luck!
