Those Thieving Birds pt 1/Strange Behaviour/Those Thieving Birds pt 2 - Silverchair
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Mr. Moustache
Email: haveigonemental@gmail.com

Tuning: standard(capo on the 4th fret)

A good chunk of credit needs to go to cgregz for this tab, his guitar cover of this on 
is the basis for this entire tab.

All of the chords here are relative to the capo 4th fret, they are simply the proper 
positions, not the actual chord names.

*note* F#m(#5/#11) will be simply be called F#m(#5) as the full chord name is too long 
line up with the lyrics.

Intro: This is all picked out, you'll have to figure that out on your own. Fairly simple 
you know the song though. The A7/C# is actually played as A7 first then the extra note 
added when you pick the chord again.

Hang strung from an empty nest
     A7/C#        Cadd9
This swan plagued pond
F#m(#5)      Gadd9       Cadd9
Forsaken and under whelmed
      A7/C#   Cadd9
Those leaving words
F#m(#5)             Gadd9   Cadd9
Hang strong from an emptiness

A7/C# - Cadd9

This is tearing me apart

If the sun won't shine
   G                    Fm
Forever will never be fine
C     F  G             Am/A(11)
Underneath the hollow ground
       D7
Lies a night time sky
    G                   Fm
For only a desperate eye

When I'm paranoid I see walls behind walls behind walls
When I'm overjoyed I see falls over falls over falls
When I'm all alone I'll be wary and careful to

Only eat with uncles
Never talk to strangers
God is in the Kitchen
Faking baby dangers

C           F  G        Am/A(11)

For the only things that end never truly begin

(Same basic chords but let them ring up until you get to the Am)

C                         F  G  Am
If this streets air ain't up to par
                                   D7
I'll take my clothes and take this strange behaviour
G             F
Not only liked but loved aswell
If this streets air ain't up to par
I'll take my clothes and take this strange behaviour
Not only liked but loved aswell

("When I'm paranoid" section repeats)

If this streets air ain't up to par
I'll take my clothes and take this strange behaviour
Not only liked but loved aswell
If this streets air ain't up to par
I'll take my clothes and take this strange behaviour
Not only liked but loved aswell
If this keeps tearing me apart
The walls come down won't stop this empty feeling
For everything apart from this

No more goodbyes
C           Gadd9
No more big lies
G6               D7(11) D7
If the truth had vers - ions
C                  F#M(#5) C        Gadd9
As long as you and I are   together
G6                 B
I'll hold onto the jewellery
Em                   F#m(#5)           G6
Like staple strapped clenched fist and tongs

Hang strung from an empty nest
Those thieving birds

ok, go to youtube and watch a live performance of those thieving birds/strange behaviour. do you see a capo? there isn't
one used in the song. the first version of this tab is closer to being correct than this one. don't watch a cover of a
song and then go around posting tabs, watch the real thing
