Tabbed & arranged by: Josh Daley

Note: - The main riff has been tabbed out in two versions.
      - Chords are given for the first verse and first chorus,
        however they are only meant as a guideline for the main riff.
      - The riff changes slightly throughout the song, but is
        generally the same.

When you're feeling like an astronaut
E                      A    E
Stuck on a planet even time forgot, and
B/F#                A/E    B/Eb                  A    E
You're a version of yourself, but you're not the same
B                         A    B/Eb
You try to keep the wound camouflaged, and
E                          A         B/Eb
The stitches heal, but the years are lost, and
B                     A     B/Eb           A    E
Another bottle on the shelf can't numb the pain

Yeah, your wounds are 
                       A       E
where the light shines through
           B      A   B/Eb  
So let's go there,

to that place where

- End verse/chorus riff early -

              F#madd4                               E
We sing these broken prayers where the light shines through--
                                    B      A  E
The wound is where the light shines through

Ain't we all just Abraham's son?
E                         A        E
Saint and sinner with the song and drum, and
B/F#                 A/E           B/Eb      A    E
We're falling on our knees, we all bleed the same
B (chug)
And the only tattoos that I have are scars
E                       A     B/Eb
I got your name written on my heart
B                  A          B/Eb                      A       E
And the story that brought us here ain't the thing that changed, no
