Vice Verses
Vice Verses -- 2010

This is a new song by Switchfoot that won't be out until 2010 but there is a live 
of this song on youtube.
This song has a LOT of repeating in it -- don't let the tab scare you -- it's not as bad 
it looks!
The song has the exact same picking pattern through almost the whole thing.
This pattern is shown the section below called "Main Riff."
You'll notice throughout the verses and chorus that this pattern seems completely out of sync.
But in reality it's not, but I merely aligned the words of the song with the actual 
notes.
So hopefully it's not to hard to follow along to!
Thanks and enjoy!

Interlude - Same as Intro

Verse 2 - Same as V1
The wind could be my new obsession
The wind could be my new depression
The wind goes anywhere it wants to
Wishing that I learned my lesson
The ocean sounds like a garage band
Coming at me like a drunk man
The ocean tells me a thousand stories
None of them are lies

Chorus

Bridge
Bm        Asus2 E/A
Let the pacific laugh
Bm       Asus2 E/A
Be on my epitaph
          B7sus4     E/A
With it's rising and falling
    B7sus4 E/A            B7sus4  
And after  all, it's just water
    E/A       Asus2  
And I am just soul
       B7sus4  Asus2     B7sus4  
With a body of water and bones
          Back into Main Riff
Water and bones

Verse 3 - Same as V1 & V2
Where is God in the night sky?
Where is God in the city light?
Where is God in the earthquake?
Where is God in the genocide?
Where are you in my broken heart?
Everything seems to fall apart
Everything feels rusted over
Tell me that you're there

Chorus
