Riff 1                                    *
I am an architect, they call me a butcher
Riff 1                                  *
I am an pioneer, they call me primative
Riff 1                              *
I am purity, they call me perverted
Riff 1                                                                                   
Holding you but I only miss these things when they leave



**BRIDGE**



D
I am idiot drug hive, the virgin the 

G#5      F#5     E5     G#5  F#5  E5
tattered and the torn
D                                                                                 
Life is for the cold made warm 

                  G#5     F#5  E5  G#5  F#5  E5
and they are just lizards 

D                                              E
I've been too honest with myself I should have lied like everybody else



**CHORUS**

Is a version of A, played in the following phrase, with the strings held 
permentantly on fret 9 and 10 and hammering on/off on 11 with 3rd and little
fingers. Listen to the record for the rythmn :

Riff 2
E---x----x----x
A---0----0----0
D---11---9----9
G---11---9----9
B---10---10---10
e---x----x----x 

(repeat to rythmn)



Riff 2                              G#5*    F#5*
I am stronger than Mensa,  Miller and Mail  - er     

  E*   D    C#     B          E  
I spat out  Plath  and  Pinter

Riff 2
I am all the things that you regret

               G#     F#  E*   D       C#     B      Em11
The truth that wash -  es that learned how to spell


(The run of 5 chords above can also be played just on the one string; it's not entirely clear from the record but this is how it's reproduced live).
