Tuning: Db Ab Db Gb Bb eb (Half-Step Drop-D)

Note: I initially learned this song in Eb tuning, but in the 
very beginning of this song I can hear Brian hitting a brief, 
open Db before the onslaught of Eb so... I transcribed it for 
half-step drop-D instead. I'm not so sure of how correct the
chorus bit is, but if anyone has a better suggestion please feel free.

Lyrics:

remember when you were the hunted
remember how i swallowed you in
remember the rewards shimmering on the floor 
off the clear plastic chandelier
remember when i saw you in orbit
remember when i pulled you back in
remember looking on blinking into the dawn
thinking how this will never end
surrounded
let's romanticize
our beloved memories
surrounded
let's demonize
 our softest injuries
surrounded
can we get behind
distortion of liberties
surrounded
we're surrounded or spiraling
remember when i played assassin
remember when my joking turned grim
remember how we thought if we followed the dots
it would stop all the accidents
remember when you broke my halo
remember how i tied your wings in
remember how we slipped on the lies we equipped
just to bring back the goods again
surrounded
let's romanticize
our beloved memories
surrounded
let's demonize
 our softest injuries
surrounded
can we get behind
distortion of liberties
surrounded
we're surrounded or spiraling
is it perfect in our little hell
are you dancing or stumbling beside me
well this might not be
let's wait and see
so now that we've stopped hearing echos
and now that the replay's worn thin
just remember who held you
remember who held you
remember who held you
remember who held you
remember who held you
surrounded
let's romanticize
our beloved memories
surrounded
let's demonize
 our softest injuries
surrounded
can we get behind
distortion of liberties
surrounded
we're surrounded or spiraling
is it perfect in our little hell
