                  THE SIMPLE ACT OF GIVING UP - Ice Nine Kills
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:BFMVowns
Email:mackgoth@charter.net

Tuning:standard

okay so this song is actually in drop D but for the sake of tabbing it out
well say its in standard. ill put all of jeremys vocal parts in
parentheses and harmonized vocals in brackets in case anyone uses this for
a live performance
so here it is

intro x2
e|-----3-------3-------3-------3-------3-------3-------3-----------|
B|---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0-|
G|-4-------4-------5-------5---------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------2-------2-----------------------|

E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

VERSE ONE
Bm                                                 C
Here I go again, put me on the first train heading eastbound.
                              Em                                   C
And if it's true I'm still alive, I promise not to tell my dad I'm miserable
      D
but thanks for all the sacrifice.
Bm                     
Cause I'm ashamed of the things that I did,
           C
I said whatever it took just to get her in bed and
Em 
It's kinda fun when you're only a kid
        C                         D
but you grow up to learn that the scars are kinda permanent

BRIDGE THING rhythm guitar

G|-----0------0-------0-------0-|
D|---5------5-------5-------5---|
A|-3------5-------7-------------|
E|------------------------------|
But I haven't had one drink in three whole years.
There's no need for drinking when you're not here.
Do you find it amusing I'm seeing clear?
in this haze of hateful atmosphere.


figure out the strum pattern for this next part...
C                    D                 Bm
So come on we're not fooling anybody tonight
Bm                                   G
We're the king and queen of social suicide.
C                                                       D
And things are better now knowing that we've never felt anyone else.


CHORUS:
           Bm                               D
So take me out, cause I'm a mess when I'm alone.
 D             A                               
[and if anyone can help], I think I'm losing it
  C                  D    
I grab and hold on tightly but i start to slip.
Bm                                        
I've got a problem with my self control, (Hold on)
D
I fall in love when I'm with any girl. (Honest)
A                                          C
They got it wrong saying love is blind it's fine,
              D
It's just disguised as sex tonight.


BRIDGE THING again but guitar two plays THIS...
e|-------------7-5-3-----7-5-3-----7-----7-5\3--|
B|-----------8---------8---------8-----8--------|
G|-----0-5h7---------7---------5-----7----------|
D|---5------------------------------------------|
A|-3--------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------7-5-3-5-3-2-3-----------7---|
B|---------------------------------------8---8-|
G|-7-5-4-5-4-0-2p0---------------5-7p5-7-------|
D|---------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|
And it's too hard to deny.

VERSE TWO
                     Bm
Cause she's got that dress on,
             C                      Em                  D
you know the one that shows off the things that she can do to me.
               Bm                 C
And I'm taking lessons how not to beg for sex
            Em                D
it's just a side effect we're feeling from the ectasy.

C                                 D         Bm           
So come on we're not getting any younger tonight.
Bm                                   G
Your the gracious host and I'm the parasite.
C                      D
It's the simple act of growing old
D             Bm
mixed in with chemicals
              G                 C
and we're the end results, slow down...
C                            D
Cause I can tell when you're aroused, (like now...)

CHORUS

BRIDGE THING again but guitar 2 plays THIS until the BUILDUP...
(the X in parentheses isnt actually there but the part starts on
an offbeat so it helps)
e|---------5-----------5-------------7-----5---------5-----5---|
B|-------8-----8-----8-----8-----8-----8-----8---8-----8-----8-|
G|-----5-----------5-----------5---5-----5-----5---5-----5-----|
D|-(x)---------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------|
And as long as I'm alive
I'll try to mend this broken future (we call life)

Bm          C              Em
I'm feeling better all the time
Em           C           D
(Pretend you care for me tonight)
Bm           C                Em         C
It's safe to say that I'll be fine, this time

BUILD UP
           Bm                             D
So take me out, cause I'm a mess when I'm alone.
                   A     
And if anyone [can help], I'm losing it
    C             D        
[So this one goes out],

END (at some point behind this spencer sings the chorus while jeremy
continues with the part below)

           Bm            
to all you lovestruck fools
         D                      A               C      D
I've got news for you, I know a thing or two on giving up.
            Bm                           D                        A
[To all you heartless souls i think it's best you know i play the leading 
        C      D
role on giving up] note:this part is the only part harmonized the first time
and from then on it is all harmonized

           Bm      
[To all you lovestruck fools,
          D                      A               C      D
we've got news for you,We know a thing or two on giving up.
           Bm                            D                         A
To all you heartless souls we think it's best you know we play the leading 
        C      D
role on giving up.]

I think the verse and chorus should be G Em C Cm-D
and the pre-chorus part is C D Em G
that's all i can say for now, I'm working on my tab for this song as of the moment
