tab by Jackie Joyner

The song is very straight forward from a rhythm guitar stand point.
There's mainly 2 repeating sections until about 2:35 when it changes
slightly. There really is no defined chorus or verse in the song, only
times when Travis sings and when he doesn't so that's why I have sections
that are Verse/Chorus.

Also there are multiple guitars in this song, but I'm only
going to tab it for solo guitar.

    Em           G           Em           G                       C
well i, i am a time bomb and i, i lay forgotten at the bottom of your heart...

   Gsus2   Bm             C(hold)

i, i am a poison and i, i am still coursing through your bloodstream like
             Gsus2  Bm              C(hold)
a ghost, like wine,       gathering vintage for the day i hurt the most
Em         G            Em         G
i, i am a land mine and i, i lay on the soil burned out by battles you
C                          Gsus2   Bm                  C(hold)
thought you'd won, i've got time...    to wait for the footsteps.. of a memory that's on 
run

     Em        G           Em                    G
well i, i am a tar pit and i, i swell like a living thing all at the
C                         Gsus2    Bm               C(hold)
slightest touch.. a black grime,        swallowing everything.. a cold and timeless clutch
Em             G              Em                    G
i, well i am a trip wire, and i, i'm stretching across the road you're
          C                        Gsus2   Bm               C(hold)
barreling down tonight...a thinish twine,        waiting to be released right beyond 
sight
