About this tab version
Based on the Vessels Album version of the song (Starset posted on their official YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2jFtRHjbPo). Converted to full chords rather than the power chords used on the album. This tab provides lyrics and chords to play the song on any instrument. You can Capo 1 and play in key of Dm but you'd still have to use barred chords, no escaping them on this one. Power chords work really well with this song for the true novice or electric guitar player. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming Are these strumming patterns correct? Yes No

[Verse]
C#m                    A
I lost myself into the night
           C#m
And I flew higher
           A
Than I had ever
                   C#m
But I still felt small
                                 A
I clipped my wings and fell from flight
        C#m
To open water
            A
And floated farther
             C#m
Away from myself
C#m               E          A
And I swam in the wakes of imposters
                        G#m      C#m
Just to feel what it's like to pretend
                         E            A
There's no dreams in the lakes only monsters
                     G#m      C#m
And the monsters are my  only friends


[Pre-Chorus]
C#m                    B
They're all that I was
B
And never could be


[Chorus]
C#m
Eyes in the dead still water
G#m                             A
Tried but it pushed back harder
A                       B
Cauterized and atrophied
           G#m
This is my unbecoming
C#m
Knives in the backs of martyrs
G#m                         A
Lives in the burning fodder
A                       B
Cauterized and atrophied
           G#m       
This is my unbecoming


[Break- repeat once]
C#m C A G#m A C A G#m    C#m C A G#m A C


[Verse 2]
C#m                         A
You found me drifted out to sea
         C#m
It's automatic
         A
It's telepathic
                   C#m
You always knew me
C#m                 E           A
And you laugh as I search for a harbor
                        G#m          C#m
As you point where your halo had been
C#m                    E             A
But the light in your eyes has been squandered
A
There's no angel in you in the end


[Pre-Chorus]
C#m                B
And all that I was
B
I've left behind me


[Chorus]
C#m
Eyes in the dead still water
G#m                             A
Tried but it pushed back harder
A                       B
Cauterized and atrophied
           G#m
This is my unbecoming
C#m
Knives in the backs of martyrs
G#m                         A
Lives in the burning fodder
A                       B
Cauterized and atrophied
           G#m       
This is my unbecoming


[Bridge]
A      F#m
Now I wait
         C#/E# 
This metamorphosis
                        A
All that is left is the change
        F#m
Selfish fate
            C#/E#
I think you made me this
                  C#m
Under the water I wait


[Instrumental]
C#m    C#m G#m A B


[Chorus]
C#m
Eyes in the dead still water
G#m                             A
Tried but it pushed back harder
A                       B
Cauterized and atrophied
           G#m
This is my unbecoming
C#m
Knives in the backs of martyrs
G#m                         A
Lives in the burning fodder
A                       B
Cauterized and atrophied
           G#m       
This is my unbecoming


[Outro]
C#m C A G#m A C A G#m    C#m C A G#m A C
C#m C A G#m A C A G#m    C#m C A G#m A C
