There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Standard Tuning, Capo 4

Have some freedom with the notes, It sounds a little more major than thrice wanted it to sound
But have fun with it. 

Dm   F         C              G       Am
When deadbolts awake you from deja vu dreams
Dm  F          C           G               Am
at four in the morning you know where I'll be.
Dm          F          E             Am
out running red lights asleep at the wheel.
F          E       
the sirens feed my nightmares,

Am              C            G       F
i just close my eyes and I'm already there;
its already too late.
Am                     C
i know its nothing but lies,
          G          F
but they sound so sincere;
i find them too hard to hate.

        Am                              C
and she calls from the doorway "stolen water is so sweet,
        F                             G
so lets drink in the darkness if you know what i mean"
        Am                              C
and she calls from the doorway "stolen water is so sweet,
        F                             E7
so lets drink in the darkness if you know what i mean"

and I'm almost sure
that I've been here before,
              Am           Am/G                F             G
that this is not the first time I've stood in front of this door,
        Am           Am/G           F         E
with an overwhelming feeling that i shouldn't go in,
E                                    E7
but it seems this is a battle that i never could win.

     Am      C
And you
       F    E
My true love
                  Am      C
You call from the hilltop
                     F       E
You call through the streets
"Darling don't you know,
           C     F          E
The water is poison"
And I say
       C                F          E
"Come on and give me my poison"

Chord bank:

Dm: x00231
C: x32010
F: 133211
G: 320033
E: 022100
E7: 020100
Am: x02210
Am/G: 302010

When there are little licks after the A minors at the beginning you can do something like:

e |-0---------0----|
B |-1---------1----|
G |-2-----0h2-2----|
D |-2--0h2----2----|
A |-0---------0----|
E |----------------|

Theres no actual thrice version of this, but i saw an attempt at an acoustic on here

and it was totally butchered. this is still wrongish, but it's more right than hte other one.

Just have fun with it.

Hey dude - it;s a really good tab, the reason it sounds too major is because the Emaj should be an Emin

That's the only thing wrong :)
