Intro: D A E7 G x3

D                  Asus4
Piles and piles of old magazines
Em7                   G
Windows locked up and hidden from the street.
D                   Asus4
In a crawlspace, forgotten money.
        Em7                       G
People tensing and waiting to come back home.
        D        Asus4           Em7
You can feel the tension in the house
     G                         D         A
the moment you walk through the door.
         Em7             G
Sudden madness allow me in again.

         D           Asus4          E7             G
When the first train flies past the house, miles away
              D                          Asus4     
the screaming starts and it feels like a minefield, 
     E7                G
the neighbors silently hiding in the shadows.
          D                   A
There's a person locked in, behind that door -
         Em7                G
Don't let anybody catch you turning the handle.
       D          Bm                         G                A
It's a long, long night. It's going to be an awful and lonely night.

               D                      A
Well...you can blot out the years and abandon the jungle
Em                      G
Cover up the tapes and refuse to look back,
         D         Bm                G         A
but your own right hand is not gonna save your soul.
              Em                   G
You have been followed! Ah, the mechanics.
         D                     A
All the reactions that seem to attach themselves.
            Em                  Bm                        G          A
It's been a very very very long year and it's gonna be an even longer night.

                       D                  A
And then a screen door slams; the windows break.
             Em7                      G
A woman just jumps and scrapes at the hood of a car.
         D                   A                        Em7                G
When the car backs up into a streetlight, all of the neighbors call the cops.
           D                  A   
She falls off and the car speeds away
               Em7                  G
Headed for the border of a far away state.
                   D                        A                         Em7 (palm muted)
It's gonna mean an hour of freedom with the radio and quarter-filled gas tank.
                      G (palm muted, again)
And a quarter filled gas tank
                    Esus4 (muted)
With the high beams on
                   G   A (unmute here)
And the windows down...

Outro consists of riffing around through D A Em7 G at varying tempos for several measures
