This tab is based on the Acoustic performance by Kevin Devine found here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJEuksQeyQE

He has his Capo on the 5th fret, but he must've had his guitar dropped half a step since Capo 4 sounds right.

I'm not 100% on the transition between Chorus and Verse. Please feel free to add a correction to it. Enjoy!


[Intro]

Strum muted strings 4 times, then go right into the 1st Verse.


[Verse]

Am               F
The Future was a Plane through a skylight
C               Em
Over Tribeca at 8:45
Am               F
My brother, at a conference room table
C                      Em          
Watched the future rearrange all our lives.


[Pre-Chorus]

F       C             F           C     
I was sleeping in her bed for the future
F     C     G              C
1st & 20th, five miles away
F            C                 F        C
Her roommate knocked, he was a relative stranger
F       C           G                      Em
"Kev, I need you to come out here, okay?"  "Okay." 


[Verse]

Am                  F
The future was me, drunk at my desk job:
C                     Em
"Update the database, reflect the deceased."
Am                     F
Cantor Fitzgerald as a digital graveyard
C                            Em          
Next to each name, I typed a lowercase "d"


[Pre-Chorus]

F       C             F           C     
I was frightened by the face of the future
F          C        G              C
It had the teeth of perpetual war
F            C                  F       C
I called my father, he said, "I know, I see it.
F            C           G                      Em
I thought it made sense. I don't anymore."


[Chorus]

C           Am   F
The mosque on my corner
C       Am          G
The firetrucks everywhere
C        Am    F
The anger, The mourners
C           Am               G
No History, it's dead in the air


[Interlude]

D  G  C  F


[Verse]

Am                  F
The future was an ad during football:
C                        Em
"We are supported by the will of the world."
Am                     F
From the floor, I felt everything tilting
C                             Em          
I watched my brother hold his 10 month old girl


[Pre-Chorus]

F             C                F            C     
Fifteen years later, and we're still in the future
F             C           G              C
The blood and money don't fix anything
F            C                 F            C
We've grown accustomed to the depths of the danger
F            C      G                 Em
This is the future: severe and always happening


[Chorus]

C           Am   F
The mosque on my corner
C       Am          G
The firetrucks everywhere
C        Am    F
The anger, The mourners
C           Am               G
No History, it's dead in the air


[Outro]

C           Am               G
No History, it's dead in the air

D  G  C  F

Am
