Lyrics:

Fear
It's all the same
Should I evolve
To tend to these sights
Said out loud then said again
If fate's so wrong
You'll start to feel lightheaded
By my admission, nothing grows
Just a longer list of unsorted laws

So why then
Has all my life made no sound
And are your eyes
Closing even now
My life made no sound
I fear your eyes closing

Revolting man
This sacred chain
Brought down to trial
No better man could fail the way
You needed all
Keep close the vein of empty
Thoughts

The finest river,
The ravens tend
All along insisting
We're worlds away

So why then
Has all my life made no sound
And are your eyes
Closing even now
My life made no sound
I fear your eyes closing

Behold the lost
Behold a Band-Aid

Behold the lost
Behold a Band-Aid

These shameful metaphors
Fought it through the teeth

Shameful metaphors
Biting at your heels

Shameful metaphors
Fought it cheek to cheek

So why then
Has all my life made no sound
(These shameful metaphors)
And are your eyes
Closing even now
My life made no sound
(These shameful metaphors)
I fear your eyes closing

It's almost perfect; the bridge is slightly wrong. It goes up from the B5 chord at the beginning, not down to F#5 on the fourth fret; the 4-4-4 and 0-0-0 are actually 11-11-9 on the 3rd, 4th and 5th strings and 12-12-12 on the 4th, 5th and 6th, respectively. It's too low when played along with the song.

Dude I think the pre-bridge is better like this:

C#|-0-0-------0-0-------0-0-------0-0---7---------------|
