Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I know it's not even out yet, but this song is amazing
so I had to tab it.  Good job to whoever figured out 
these lyrics.

These are the chords I refer to in the tab:

    G   F#/G   Em   D    C   B/C   Am    G7    C7
e|--3----2-----0---------0----0----0-----1------0----------------------------|
B|--0----0-----0----3----1----1----1-----0------1----------------------------|
G|--0----0-----0----2----0----0----2-----0------3----------------------------|
D|--0----0-----2----0----2---------2-----0------2----------------------------|
A|--2----------2---------3----2----0-----2------3----------------------------|
E|--3----2-----0-------------------------3-----------------------------------|


The verse is just a simple chord progression:

*Note: The chords are pretty much above the exact syllables
       of each lyric.


[Verse 1]

G   F#/G        Em     D
    Dead in the water   
C          B/C      Am
It's not a paid vacation
G      F#/G       Em           D       C
    The sons and daughters of city officials 
 B/C          Am
Attend demonstrations
G       F#/G      Em        D
    It's hardly a sink or swim
     C         B/C       Am
When all is well if the ticket sells


[Break 1:]
G  F#/G  Em  D  C  B/C  Am  Am


[Verse 2]

G   F#/G       Em    D
    Out with a wimper
C          B/C      Am
It's not a blaze of glory
G           F#/G            Em
    You look down from your temple 
   D        C        B/C         Am
As people endeavor to make it a story
G       F#/G     Em      D
    And chisel a marble word
    C        B/C         Am
But all is lost if it's never heard


[Break 2:]

G   C7   G   G7

[Chorus]

C
But I've got someone to make reports
D
That tell me how my money's spent
C
To book my stays and draw my blinds
D
So I can't see what's really there
D
And all I need's a great big congratulations

G  F#/G  Em  D  C  B/C  Am  Am


Just repeat for the rest of the song:

[Verse 3]

I'll keep your dreams
You pay attention for me
As strange as it seems 
I'd rather dissolve than have you ignore me
The ground may be moving fast
But I tied my boots to a broken mast

[Break 1]

[Verse 4]

The difference is clear
You throw it in your cauldron
Rust and veneer, dusk and dawn
Steinways and Baldwins
You start with a simple stock of all the waste
And salt to taste

[Break 2]

[Chorus 2]

But damn my luck and damn these friends
That keep on combing back their smiles
I save my grace with half-assed guilt
And lay down the quilt upon the lawn
Spread my arms and soak up congratulations 


Word.

Looks good except the Am at the end of each verse "When all is well if the ticket sells," etc. is a D

Yeah I know. I made this back when they first played it live, so I only had youtube-quality audio to go by. I could update it but I'm too lazy - I also figured out how to play the intro with the keyboard part included.
