Sleeping Lessons
The Shins
Wincing The Night Away
Official release by Sub Pop Records on January 23, 2007.

The album's out there ... this is the first track.
The pattern is played with some strange delay.  The actual guitar strum comes in at 
the chorus and the whole band kicks in after the second verse at about 2 minutes and a half in.

pattern for chords:
    E                   A                  B
e|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|
B|-------------------|-------------------|-------------------|
G|-------------------|-------------------|--------1-4-1------|
D|-------------------|--------4-6-4------|----1-4-------4-1--|
A|--------4-6-4------|--0-4-7-------7-4--|--2----------------|
E|--0-4-7-------7-4--|-------------------|-------------------|

[Intro]
E 4x

E
Go without 'til the need seeps in
              A                                         E
you're low anymore; collect your novel petals for the stem
E
and glow, glow; melt and flow

[Verse]
E
eviserate your fragile frame
                            A                                        E
spilled it all in ragged form; a thousand different versions of yourself
              B                               A
  and if the old gaurd still offend; you got nothing left on which you depend
 A
so enlist ounce of your bright blood and off with their heads

[Chorus]
E                                                                        A
  Jump from the book; you're not obliged to swallow anything you despise

[Verse]
                                          E
See those unrepenting buzzards want your life
                  A
when they got no right; as sure as you have eyes
                E       B      A
they got no right

[Verse]
E       A

E
Just put yourself in my new shoes; and see that I do what I do
             B                             A
because the old gods still offend; we got nothing left on which we depend
 A
so we waste every ounce of your bright blood and off with their heads

[Chorus]
E
  Jump from the book; you're not obliged to swallow anything you despise

Plays out like this:

[Intro]
E 10x A 4x E 6x

[Verse]
E 4x A 4x E 4x B 4x A 4x

[Chorus]
E 4x A 4x

[Verse]
E 4x A 4x E 4x B 4x A 4x

[Verse]
E 4x A 4x E 4x B 4x A 4x

[Chorus]
E till the end
