Machines - Biffy Clyro - Puzzle
Standard Tuning (EADGBe)
Tabbed by Jack Cookson (Torn Asunder)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I noticed that some of the other versions of this song were missing chords
so I thought I'd give it a shot at doing my own. I worked this out completely
by ear, so no copying involved. It's around 99% correct I'd say, hope you
enjoy playing this amazing song.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Chords used:

Don't play the strings marked with an 'x'

E5     (022xxx)
G5     (355xxx)
C5     (x355xx)
D5     (xx023x)
Em7    (022033)
G      (320033)
Cadd9  (x32033)
Dsus4  (xx0233)
A7sus4 (x02233)

IMPORTANT NOTE:

Simon doesn't always hit the high E string on the bottom 6 chords
on the list. A lot of the time he only plays up to the B string but it
still sounds good if you play the high E too, it just depends on what kind of
a build up you want to have. 
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Intro:

(Listen to the song to get the chord changes)

E5x4, G5x4, C5x8, D5x2, G5x4, C5x8

Verse 1:
G5                                  C5
I would dig a thousand holes to lay next to you
        E5             D5                  C5
I would dig a thousand more if I needed to

Verse 2:
G5                             C5
I look around the grave for an escape route of old routines
      Dsus4           G                Cadd9
There doesn't seem to be any other way

Chorus:
      Em7                 G                        Cadd9
Cause I've started falling apart I'm not savouring life
      Dsus4                      G               Cadd9
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Interlude 
(Just play intro chords and get a buddy to play the melody, there's tabs for
on it the site on different versions for sure.)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verse 3:
G                                   Cadd9
Crazy as it sounds you wont feel as low as you feel right now
Em7                            Dsus4            Cadd9
At least that's what I've been told by everyone
Dsus4           Em7                    Cadd9                  A7sus4
I whisper empty sounds in your ear and hope that you won't let go
Cadd9                A7sus4
  Take the pieces and build them skywards

Chorus:
      Em7                  G                      Cadd9
Cause I've started falling apart I'm not savouring life
       Dsus4                     G              Cadd9
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

      Em7                  G                      Cadd9
Cause I've started falling apart I'm not savouring life (Take the pieces...)
       Dsus4                     G              Cadd9
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive  (Take the pieces...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Guitar solo, same chords as intro and interlude. 
(Again the tab should be somewhere for your second guitarist to play, or if
you're amazing, you can use a LOOP PEDAL :D)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chorus:
G                                             Cadd9
I've started falling apart I'm not savouring life

(Take the pieces and build them skywards)

     Em7                         Dsus4           Cadd9
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

(Take the pieces and build them skywards)

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Get your loop pedal/buddy to help play the interlude melody over these last
verses.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chorus: 
     Em7                  G                      Cadd9
Cause I've started falling apart I'm not savouring life (Take the pieces...)
       Dsus4                     G              Cadd9
I've forgotten how good it could be to feel alive (Take the pieces...)

Outro:
Em7                 G                       
 Take the pieces and build them skywards and
Cadd9              A7sus4
 Take the pieces and build them skywards and
Em7                 G                 Cadd9
 Take the pieces and build them up to the sky
