* by Streetlight Manifesto
*
* CAPO 1 for SM, CAPO 2 for BOTAR
*
* One of my first tabs, I gathered up the rest of the tabs available
* and added the complete lyrics because they are way too difficult.
* Even Tomas can't even remember  them. :P
*
* Thanks to Jimmythetiger for the intro, I pushed it up a couple strings
* Tabs are relative to Capo
*
* It is very hard to follow especially the first verse
* However the chord progression for the whole song is
*
* Am Am F  E
* Am Am F  E
* Am Am F  E
* F     E
*
* slower parts go
*
* Am F C G
*
* but it is easier to think about it like this
*

[Verse 1]
           Am          Am         F            E
There is a man with no face And a name I don't remember.
    Am         Am           F             E
Who lives in a house in the middle of the woods.
        Am         Am        F             E
And he said once 'Son, don't you laugh out loud
    F                      E
for they are listening,    Oh they are listening
Am      Am      F            E
Ooooooooooh you've got to be strong.
Am Am F E
Am          Am                 F       E
Ooooooooooh you've got to keep holding on.
F                         E Am
Now it's just a matter of time

[Horn fill]

[Verse 2]
Am               Am            F               E
They provide the paint for the picture perfect masterpiece
               Am      Am F               E
that you will (paint on!) the insides of your eyelids;
Am               Am     F                 E
Can you possibly see anything you want to see?
    F                      E
No (Hell No!) There's nothing wrong with the way I see.
Am               Am                  F          E
and he wanted to be a soldier in the next great war.
             Am                 Am              F                E
he wanted to kill and fight and maim but not be told what he was fighting for.
Am         Am           F                E
And that's the way it's going to have to be my friend,
    F                            E
And that's the way it's going to have to be my friend,

[Verse 3]
           Am         Am            F    E
I passed a man on the corner in the city yesterday singing
 Am        Am       F              E
'Yada yada yada and tomorrow it'll never end'
      Am                Am          F           E
and I never thought I'd live to see another sunny day
        F                       E
but I'm here and I fear I'll be here till the end.

[Chorus]
   Am         Am               F               E
So watch your mouth. Or you're going to make a grave mistake.
Am        Am                F                E
Hold your tongue. Or you're going to catch a bullet in the head.
   Am         Am               F               E
So watch your mouth. Or you're going to make a grave mistake.
F                      E
Don't die for anything less than the best of life.

[Bridge]
    Am              F
The things you said went to your head,
    C                  G
But you never tried to understand:
Am                                     F
What they'll take: you will never take back, cause they take, (what they take) what
C                     G
they can because they can from you.
Am                                      F
You follow me and you follow me but you never ask why.
C                                    G
And I wonder what you're under could this be another piece of the
 Am                  F
'I don't know I just do what they say because
C                        G
they say what to do in a matter of fact way'
Am                         F
But don't stop because you might get burned.
C                           G
And you might just learn to stand on your own two feet.
Am                    F
And I think that it's neat how you learn to
C                          G
repeat everything that you hear in the street so well.
Am      F      C                    G                      (Am)
           You learn to repeat everything that you hear so well.
Am      F      C                    G                      (Am)
           You learn to repeat everything that you hear so well.

[Interlude]
Am (strum with the horn blasts: buh ... buh buh ... buh )

(Normal Speed)

[Verse 3]
Oh well..
    Am           Am                   F                  E
And everyone was resting because they thought it was the end.
    Am         Am          F                 E
And even if it wasn't they decided they'd pretend.
    Am               Am               F              E
And somewhere in the distance I could hear him whispering
         F                               E
'You can fight all you want you'll never win in the end'.

[Verse 4]
Ai, Ai, Ai, Ai,
Am               Am               F           E
Sometimes in the evening when I'm lying in my bed
     Am           Am            F        E
I am taken to the forest to the isolated shed.
      Am            Am        F            E
And I wake with his words resonating in my head.
      F                             E
And I can't stop thinking about the gist of what he said.

[Chorus]
He said:
Am         Am               F               E
Watch your mouth. Or you're going to make a grave mistake.
Am        Am                F                E
Hold your tongue. Or you're going to catch a bullet in the head.
Am         Am               F               E
Watch your mouth. Or you're going to make a grave mistake.
F                      E
Don't die for anything less than the best of ...
F                        E
Everyone settles for the rest not the best of ...
F                 E                     Am E Am
I will die for no less than the best of life.

This is an amazing tab. I've been trying to find a decent version of this song for a while now. Great job.
