I've tried to line up the chords as best as possible, as always, listen to the 
song for best comparison. I'm sure this is right, then again, I have just spent an 
hour I should've spent in bed working this out. I've actually worked out a lot of 
the new album, will likely add them soon. The lyrics are makeshift, based on what 
I could decipher, will update when the album comes out :D Enjoy! Sounds best 
played on open chords!

F G E Am
F E 

Dm              A
Through the rain and all the clatter
F           C        G
Under the Fremont bridge I saw a pigeon fly
Dm            F              C                 A
Fly in fear from the raptor come to take its life

Dm               A
And as it closed in for the capture
F     C          G
I funnelled the fear through my ancient eyes

Dm              F
To see in flight, what I know are
     C                    A
The bitter mechanics of life

F         G                    E             F
Under my hat it reads "the lines are all imagined" 
F           G             E                   Am
A fact of life I know to hide from my little girls
F           G                E                 F
I know my place amongst the bugs and all the animals
F                      E
And it's from these ordinary people
            F            G
You are longing to be free

Dm         A
My hotel and on the TV
F    C           G
A preacher on the stage like a buzzard cries
Dm             F                      C               A
Our a warning of phony sorrow. He's trying to get a rise.

Dm          A
The cyanide of an almond
F        C             G
Let him look at your hands, get the angles right
Dm               F              C                  A
Ace of spades, Port of Morrow, life is death is life.

F           G          E          F
I saw a photograph; Cologne in ‘27
F           G                E        Am
And then a postcard after the bombs in ‘45
F                 G             E                   F
Must have been a world of evil clowns that let it happen
F            E           
But now I recognise, dear listeners,
               F               G
That you were there and so was I

Instrumental break
Dm F
Dm C A
Dm F C A

(whole break x2)

F         G               E             F
Under my hat I know the lines are all imagined 
F           G             E                   Am
A fact of life I must impress on my little girls
F           G                E                 F
I know my place amongst the creatures in the pageant
F                E
And there are flowers in the garbage
         F               G
And a skull under your curls

Instrumental break
Dm F
Dm C A
Dm F C A

Repeat instrumental break until fade.

Note: I initially had the verse second part of the verse chords as
Dm               A              C                  A
Ace of spades, Port of Morrow, life is death is life.
 for example, with another A in place of the F. It sounded right to me, but I went 
by the bass and used an F, part of me is still unsure about it.

My only correction would be to remove the F and go straight to C at the "I funneled the fear" "A preacher on a stage" ect. part. Great job though!
