   /  The Getaway Plan  /  I think this song is about a guy feeling that he
  /  Streetlight       /  needs to fall in love. It's about that you have to
 /  Streeglight       /  give yourself fully in to love and surrender to it
/____________________/  as not living it out fully would be worth noting.

Tunings: Drop-C (C G C F A D)

 Guitar 1: Distorted
 Guitar 2: Distorted
 Guitar 3: Clean w/slightly dirty overdrive
 Guitar 4: Distorted w/wah

- Although there are four guitar tracks, it's no problem to play this song if you're
  only two guitarists. At most there are three of the guitar tracks playing at a time
  and if two of them aren't playing the same, then it's no problem omitting one part.


 Intro (chorus):
****************
Guitar 1 & 2's riffs are both played 2x for the Intro (and all the choruses).
Guitar 3 first plays its melody in the second round here in the intro.


 Guitar 1:
  Gm                Gm                Eb                Eb

 Chorus:
********
Just as it's explained in the Intro, Guitar 1 & 2 play their riffs twice.


  " But if we crawl into the morning
    We will never see the light
    And if we leave it up the fate
    Then we could fall in love tonight
    If we spend another minute
