So deep into the orchard you will stumble on the skin of snakes.
So let me know your nerves, we'll lose the road.
And I will boil the curtains to extract the drugs of springtime,
but the unicorn it stirs up as a mule.

VERSE & CHORUS 2:

And far out on the ocean with a colored nail I'll force the whale,
We'll tattoo all our crimes across his back.
Can't you see him swim up to the harbor of the city with the shiver in our buildings as we drown.

I said throw me in the fire now, c'mon
I said throw me in the fire now, c'mon

'Cause we will paint our house with water,
To have an outlet for the sigh.
Ohhh, and as I never see the changes,
I will be useless as I try.
As I say baby don't cry.

VERSE 4

**Repeat Riff from the beginning of the song.

LYRICS:

You said I look just like Mosiah on a cloudy night just findin' out.
The wise men lost but still they found a son.

And deep into the orchard you will lead me by the skin of snakes,
to let me know my sentence as they dry.

I said throw me in the fire now, c'mon
I said throw me in the fire now, c'mon

----

VERSE 5 (same as verse 3)

'Cause we will paint our house with water,
To have an outlet for the sigh
And as I never see the changes,
I will be useless as I try.
As I say baby don't cry. --> (repeat intro riff)

(play twice)

The colors of the water streams been floatin' through our pistol dreams a long time.
And I never went to see the fall before the barrel builder call.
Forgive, oh me.

Great tabs my friend! :D
Do you have a clue on the intro?

Supposed to be in DADEAD tuning, but if you transpose the G string it'll sound fine.

Good work.

A less awkward and better sounding way to play the
