The Zolas: Marionettes:
Album: Tic Tic Toc

Note: The chorus is not complete. I can't quite figure out some of the chords. 
Hopefully someone with a better ear than me (this is my first tabbed song) can 
sort out the chorus and upload a version 2. (and possibly fix some of the chord 
names, if I got any wrong; some of the higher up the fret chord names I was sort 
of guessing at based on the root note.

Intro                                                   
A *3, Bm *1, F *3, Gbm *1                            
A *3, Bm *1, F *2, Gbm *1

Verse 1: Strummed
A           Bm             F            Gbm                  
Sometimes an empire doesn't fall
A           Bm             F            Gbm
As masked invaders climb the walls
A           Bm             F            Gbm
Or spreading fires or rising floods
A           Bm             F            Gbm
Sometimes it dies within

A           Bm             F            Gbm                  
The king and queen, they go to bed
A           Bm             F            Gbm                  
On years of quiet neglect
Bm,      Am,           A,           Gbm                      
To find the coffers bare but with
F#        Gbm,         Am,        B                  
The musk of arrogance
F#        Gbm,         Am,        B
The musk of arrogance                           

B (though I'm not sure he actually plays anything)       
With me, you're making the same mistakes I made 
B                      Something           Gbm
with you I couldn't convey I felt the same

??              ??      ??
It's true, we're marionettes
Bm                   A  
But we pull the strings
 
Something              Am             C#       B
And here as we dance, we tangle

I'm spinning you round and closer we're wound

We're marionettes 

Intro
A *3, Bm *1, F *3, Gbm *1                            
A *3, Bm *1, F *2, Gbm *1

A           Bm             F            Gbm                  
There's comfort in a holding hand
A           Bm             F            Gbm          
A schedule on which you depend
A           Bm             F            Gbm
A cage in which you're snugly penned
A           Bm             F            Gbm
That's what we have become

A           Bm             F            Gbm
A cyclone in a glass of wine
A           Bm             F            Gbm
We both have wishbones for a spine.
Bm,      Am,           A,           Gbm                      
But how long will we play this record's tattered side
F#        Gbm,         Am,        B                  
Afraid to change the song? 
F#        Gbm,         Am,        B                  
Afraid to change the song? 


(Into chorus again)

During the Chorus: 
(The piano here is alternating between E and A, which you can get with your A 
Major or A Minor at 5, strumming your A and D string. That little high piano riff 
before the guitar comes in is C# and A; the C# is on the e string at fret9, the A 
is on the b string at fret10. You can actually build a finger picking pattern on 
this by barring at 7 and hitting your 3rd finger on the e string at 9, and your 
pinky on the b string at 10. It's slightly uncomfortable. Leaving out the piano 
part lets you hang out in an A Major at 5  and be readier for the chord shift up to B Major).
