One Man, No City - Parquet Courts
   Human Performance - 2016
___________________________________________________________________________

E is actually a Em7no5, and E2 is actually a Em6no5, check http://www.chorderator.com/designer/

I'm referring to them as E and E2 for ease of tabbing and viewing.

e|-----------------------------|
B|-----------------------------|
G|-7---x-7-7---6-6---6-6-6-6-7-|  main riff, something like this
D|-5---x-5-5---5-5---5-5-5-5-5-|   just sound it out, use your ears
A|-7---x-7-7---7-7---7-7-7-7-7-|    it's not complicated, whatsoever
E|-----------------------------|

All but one chord for Bridge/Outro are barred, and rooted on the low E string. 
(I.E. Use barred E chord shape on 3rd, 5th, and 8th frets)

The main chord (Gsus2/A), referred to as A2

[Verse 1]

E              E2 
 Where I'm from, well no one lived there.
E               E2
 I look back now, nothing's changed.
E                  E2
 Where I'm from now, still no one lives there.
E                E2
 Look back again   and lock the door. 
E                E2
 Yeah, I maintain, I still remain
E                 E2
 one man solitary   and no city.
E                 E2
 One man solitary   and no city.
E                 E2
 One man solitary   and no city.

[Verse 2]

E             E2   
 "Cogito ergo   sum" people say,
E                       E2 
 but think again 'cause   I have no faith.
E                       E2
 I find building blocks   filled with nothing.
E                      E2
 Seen an ink blot page   and I said nothing.
E                            E2
 "Outside? I'll check it out   it's just a mirror."
E                 E2               
 "Look back now!"   An empty page.
E              E2
 Yet I maintain, I still remain,
E                 E2
 one man solitary   and no city.
E                 E2
 One man solitary   and no city.
E                 E2
 One man solitary   and no city.

[Verse 3]

E        E2
 No town   and no city
E            E2
 No identity   and no city
E                         E2
 No thoughts, no feelings   and no city
E                        E2
 No, you just me I think   and no city
E                 E2
 No words I speak   and no city
E           E2
 No outside   and no city
E               E2
 Nothing at all   and no city
E            E2
 No way home   and no city
E          E2
 No relief   and no city
E            E2
 No sympathy   and no city
E                 E2
 No understanding   and no city
E                    E2
 There's no one else   and no city
E              E2
 Yet I maintain, I still remain,
E                 E2
 one man solitary   and no city.
