Tuning: half step down. 

This song is found on "Bug Sessions: Volume 3". 
Im a new fan and i couldnt find a tab for this song on UG so i thought i'd do it myself.

Rythm: Just strum to this, if you have heard the song you should be fine with figuring it out.
lead: he uses the D# major scale, just play around and have fun.(chuck in a few octaves too)

End on C#m

Lyrics:
If every limb were broken, 
tires had all worn thin 
and my toes are all in pieces. 
Do you know 
what I would do? 
I would play can you drag yourself 
200 miles 
with just your fingernails? 
A little game that I made up. 
Do you know that I never ever lose? 
There is nothing to 
keep me from coming back to you 
cause I can picture all the pictures of you 
and me on your walls. 
What would it take to make you mine forever? 
Just your fingernails, 
a little game that I made up. 
Do you know, that I never ever lose? 
Could I cut out my liver, 
make a special potion 
to close my flat? 
Three parts my heart. 
Yeah, you know that I would do it in a second. 
With just my fingernails, 
a little game that I made up. 
Do you know that I never ever lose? 
I am not afraid of what it takes to glue you to my side 
even if it takes a little bleeding, so be it 
I would go without breathing and I don't have to justify it. 
You just watch me. I've got time to kill.

Where is says "To close my flat?" it's actually "Two parts my blood".
