              THE LIGHT AND THE GLASS - Coheed and Cambria
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: joecool71
Email: mattconnellan@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard

The tenth and final(?) entry in my Coheed series, this one is a bigun'. I got pretty
much everything except the final solo, which is done with far to much distortion and
fade on the cd for me to fathom much of it. Also, there's a some other instruments
in this song other than guitar. Try to filter that out when listening for the riffs. Otherwise, enjoy!

LYRICS AND RIFF PLACEMENT

[VERSE] X4
Slowly the pen touches paper in the guidance of the words that you write
Memories roll in of the things you once did
And who you had shared them with is somebody thinking of you
Did I bother telling you this with the words that cross teeth and jump lips
A poor choice of words in wanting to tell you anything
But words don't come with ease they're forever my hurt
Would it really matter if you were to count the days left with your hands
Your focus secure and the loves you left well
Smiles staged in photographs here until...
[PRECHORUS W/ LEAD] X2
You left the light on
There's a chance I might have tripped girl
You were there to hold on
[CHORUS] X4
Ignoring the words of your obnoxious little brother
Kill or be killed spilled the words from your mother
I'll lay awake for a while
I'll leave the light on a while
[BRIDGE] X2
You couldn't last a lifetime caught between here and the days of it
Carving her name across your arm with every wish its hit or miss her
[PHASE II] X4
I told you so I measured distance in lines departing the rest of my life
[PHASE III] X2
But you had better things to do
[PHASE IV W/ LEAD]
Liar
[CHORUS] X4
Ignoring the words of your obnoxious little brother
Kill or be killed spilled the words from your mother
I'll lay awake for a while
I'll leave the light on a while
[BRIDGE] X2
You couldn't last a lifetime caught between here and the days of it
Carving her name across your arm with every wish its hit or miss her
[PHASE II] X4
I told you so I measured distance in lines departing the rest of my life
[PHASE V W/ LEAD 1 & 2]
If you'd get put to sleep, like an old dog you're better off, should you get put to sleep
[PHASE VI] X2
I've been cautious with the words I extend
Allow this year before the world starts to end
[PHASE VII W/ LEAD] X4
Your fathers dead he passed in his sleep, and I woke to the sounds of her crying
[PHASE VII ECHO W/ LEAD]
Pray for us all...
[PHASE VII ECHO] UNTIL FADEOUT
Pray for us all... My dearest Appollo I'll be burning star 4
