Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I worked this out by listening to the song from Nature Bears a Vacuum, and listening to
an old concert by The Shins circa 2002. The lyrics are just taken from the internet with
a couple of my own ideas thrown in. This song should be played with barre chords, using 
7th fret B as a starting point. The "Where I'm meant to be" section and the following E
F# run up should be played with open chords, certainly sounds like that's how it's done! 
I hope this helps.


            B                    Bb        E
They want trash, they want you batting a lash
           B           Ebm       E
I'll eat styes from elephants' eyes
            B          Bb           E
They're in touch with their inner crutch
           B                Ebm
They wont stab but they'll grab
            E              F#
And that's just like the other

         B           Bb         E
We get news and we drown it in booze
          B           Ebm      E
We take lives from elephants' eyes
            B            Bb            E
They're in bed with the crowd eating lead
         B           Ebm
It wont stop if you shop
          E            F#
With the lovers of bloodshed

E                           B
I went to school, and saw slides
         A             E - B
Of where I'm meant to be
                   E - B
Where I'm meant to be
                   E - G#
Were I'm meant to be

E F#

         B          Bb           E
We need time like a kid eating limes
         B          Ebm            E
We're in town when bees are let out
         B                 Bb      E
We get laughs through an osmotic patch
         B             Ebm
We're attached to the past
             E           F#
'Cause our future's a bleak one

E                          B
I went to school and saw slides
          A            E - B
Of where I'm meant to be
              E - B
I'm meant to be

(Repeat the I'm meant to be line)

then end with

E   G#

E   F# x 3

End on B
