Survival In The Wild - Adrian Belew
As recorded on the amazing "Here" album



D2 (sitar - similar to vocals)



    D2
Underneath a burning sky
      G             D2
the tenants of the fire
         D2
sit in silence as they ponder
   F#-6          G
survival in the wild


D^E-    F#-    G    A


D2 (+ sitar riff)

          D2
With our love to keep us up
          G              G/F#
there is nothing in the world
                  E-
that can knock us down
        D2
we can take whatever comes
       G              G/F#
if we face it hand in hand
                 E-         A
we can stand our ground


       F#-                  G
Just a couple of kids with clouds in our heads
          E-                       A              A7
trying to swim upstream; trying to make it good
        F#-                    G
but it happened so fast; when disaster came
        E-                         A              A7
that a river of teardrops couldn't wash it away

          D2
How do we now view ourselves,
        G             G/F#            E-
sitting victims in a shelter needing help?
          D2
How do we now regain control
          G              G/F#            E-      A
over the remnants of our life without a home?


     F#-                       G
If a bomb had hit us, nothing less would remain
      E-                     A                    A7
not a wall to lean on; not a fork or a plate
        F#-                           G
but at least we made it out and we're still alive
           E-                      A                     A7
and we're starting over now in the middle of the night

G    G/F#    E-    A


         E-       F#-      G           D      
It's a matter of time; a struggle to survive
        E-      F#-    G             D
but it doesn't need to be a lonely fight
       E-           F#-
if we stand by each other
          G           A              D2
we'll be sure of our survival in the wild

As always, fell free to make this tab better.
This is one of the most "indian" song in "Here"...as the title track, almost 
impossible to re-write.
I love the vocal line, and the way Adrian sings.
Simply amazing.
Thank you Ade.
