There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is the first song on "Modern Guilt".

(Verse 1):  I think I'm stranded but I don't know where
           Bb                C              D
I got this diamond that don't know how to shine
In the sun where these dark winds wail
          Bb                   C         D
and these children leave their rulers behind
      Bb        C              D
As we cross ten leagues from a Rubicon
     Bb          C        D
with matchsticks for my bones
          Bb           C         F       G
If we can learn how to freeze ourselves alive
       Bb                   C            D
We can learn to leave these burdens to burn

          F              C
(Break):  Cast out these creatures of woe
G               D
Who shatter themselves
F          C        G         D
Fighting a fire with your bare hands

(Verse 2, same chords as Verse 1):
Now my journey takes me further south
I wanna hear what the blind men sing
With their fossils and their gypsy bones
I'll stand beside myself so I'm not alone
And how can I make new again
What rusts every time it rains
And the rain it comes, and floods our lungs
We're just orphans in a title wave's wake

        Bm                            D
(End):  If I wake up and see my maker comin'
Bm                                     D
With all of his crimson and his iron desire
Bb                                          D
We'll drag the streets with the baggage of longing
      C          G               F
To be loved or destroyed, from a void
     C        G            D
to a grain of sand in your hand.

Great Tab!
You can also play the chords A,F,G,A... when playing with a capo on 5th fret ( or if you dont play to the record )

To see these chords, transpose "Down 5 Half Steps" with the UG-transpose tool
