Chords Used:

CHORD   TAB (lo-to-hi)
----------------------
[Bm*]    7-9-9-7-7-7
[A*]     5-7-7-6-5-5
[G*]     3-5-5-4-3-3
[Em]     0-2-2-0-0-0
[D]     x-x-0-2-3-2
[A]      x-0-2-2-2-x
[G]      3-2-0-0-0-3
[G/F#]   2-0-0-x-x-3
[Bm]     x-2-4-4-3-x
[Bm/A]   x-0-4-4-3-x



Notes:
------
When you play a D chord, it's usually always followed by a Dsus4 then back to D, eg:

E|-2-2-3---3-2---|
B|-3-3-3---3-3---|
G|-2-2-2---2-2---|
D|-0-0-0-----0---|
A|---------------|
E|---------------|

Also, whenever an G follows and A chord, this is played to bridge the chords:

During the verses:              During the chorus:
E|-----------------3---|        E|----------------3---|
B|-2--3-3-3/5------0---|        B|-2--3--3/5------0---|
G|-2--x-x-x-x--0-0-0---|        G|-2--2--x-x--0-0-0---|
D|-2-----------0-0-0---|        D|-2--2-------0-0-0---|
A|-0---------------2---|        A|-0--------------2---|
E|-----------------3---|        E|----------------3---|

So, when all put together, the guitar intro is played like this:

   Bm         A          G          Em         D            A               G
E|----7-7-7------5-5-5------3-3-3------0-0-0---2----3---2-------------------3---|
B|----7-7-7------5-5-5------3-3-3------0-0-0-x-3----3---3---2--3-3-3/5------0---|
G|----7-7-7-x----6-6-6-0----4-4-4-0----0-0-0-x-2--2-2-2-2-0-2--x-x-x-x--0-0-0---|
D|----9-9-9-x----7-7-7-0----5-5-5-0----2-------0--0---0---0-2-----------0-0-0---|
A|-9----------7----------5----------2-----------------------0---------------2---|
E|-7----------5----------3----------0---------------------------------------3---|



[Verse 1]
-------

            Bm*      A*       G*         Em 
I think I'll   go home   and mull this over
        D       A         G 
Til I cram it down my throat
           Bm*        A*             G*      Em
At long last  it's crashed, it's colossal mass
             D         A         G
Has broken up  into bits in my moat


[Chorus 2]
--------

 Em        D       Em           D 
  Rip the mattress    off the floor
 Em         D               A             G 
  Walk the cramps off, go meander in the cold
 Em          D           Em             D 
  Heavy and dark skinned,   hiding the fact you're dead again
 Em       D            A               G
  Underneath the powerlines seeking shade


 G/F#   G   /F#  G     /#F      G          /F#      G
 Far   above our  heads are the icy heights that contain all reason


[Verse 2]
-------

It's a lucious mix of words and tricks
That let us bet when we know we should fold
On rocks I've dreamt of where we stepped
And the whole mess of roads we're now on


[Chorus 2]
--------

Hold your glass up, hold it in
Never betray the way you've always known it is
One day I'll be wondering how I got so old
Just wondering how I never got cold wearing nothing in the snow


This is way beyond my remote concern of being condescending


[Bridge 1]
--------

 Bm   Bm/A   G   G/F#   Em    G/F#   G 
 All  these  squawking  birds won't  quit
 Bm   Bm/A   G    G/F#   Em    G/F#    G
 Buil-ding   no - thing  lay - ing     bricks


PLAY VERSE, CHORUS 2 AND BRIDGE AGAIN
