Biffy Clyro - Machines (Puzzle)
STANDARD TUNING

Transcribed by Miranda Harding (muckquaiker@gmail.com)

This is a really rough guide to the song, the chords aren't in the exact place and I 
put the rhythm in, but it's easy enough to figure out by yourself.

It's a great song, off a great album. Mon the Biffy.

Verse 1

G                                    C
I would dig a thousand holes to lay next to you
        Em            D               C
I would dig a thousand more if I needed to
G
I look around the grave
       C
For an escape route of old routine
      D                 G             C
There doesn’t seem to be any other way

Chorus

   Em                   D                      C
I’ve started falling apart i’m not savouring life
        D                       G               C
I’ve forgotten how good it could be to feel alive

   G                                         C
Crazy as it sounds you won’t feel as low as you feel right now
Em                         D                  C
At least that’s what I’ve been told by everyone
 D                  G
I whisper empty sounds in your ear
 C                  D
And hope that you won’t let go
    C                   C
Take the pieces and build skywards

jst a few corrections, think the intro goes E, G (instead of D), C, D,G,C. and in the chorus/middle 8/break the 1st D in the pattern should be a G. minor things lol. otherwise gud tab-age!
