MGMT - Siberian Breaks Chords

by Ryan McGrath

100% transcribed by me. Please inform me of any mistakes.

Chords are listed as regular or flat, never sharp, for ease of playing. This is 
regardless of key.

        Examples of chords and their notations:

        Am = A minor
        Bbm = B flat minor
        C = C major
        Gb = G flat major
        G7 = G dominant 7
        Amaj7 = A major 7

Part A (O0:00 - 01:22):


        Here, A minor, C major, and Amaj7 are played with the two top strings (B 
and high E) being open, but still strummed.
        

        Am      C      Am     C      
        Bbm     Cm     Bbm    Cm
        A
        

        Am                   C
                Sleep as the goer
            Am                      C
        the bridge that watches the light speed through
        Bbm                 Cm
        And cries while the spirit stumbles
        Bbm               Cm                     Amaj7
        the inside missile for the protection of you
        
        Am                 C
                Maybe it's silent
            Am                  C     
        the voice can't bear anymore strain
        Bbm                Cm
        but speaks without even knowing
            Bbm            Cm                        Amaj7
        and streams out of sight in the direction of truth

        Amaj7   Em     Amaj7  Em



Part B (01:23 - 01:51):


        Transition:

        -----5-----5------|
        ---5-----5-----10-|
        -6-----7-----9----|
        ------------------|
        ------------------|
        ------------------|

        Gm                 C                 Dm
                There's no reason there's no secret to decode
        Gm                   C                 Dm           G
                if you can't save it, leave it dying on the road
        Gm                C                Dm       C
                wide open arms can feel so cold, so cold
        Feel so cold


Part C (01:52 - 02:09):


        Em      Gb     D      Dbm    Bm     E


Part D (02:10 - 04:44):


        Transition - Play A major until the singing comes in.

        A       
        Balance the books, the ledges, the loons
                                     Gbm
        the disappointed look on the faces
                           E
        that squint at the moon
        Dbm                       Bm
        Let's see it with shadows enhanced
                 Dbm                   D
        and then vote to decide who'll advance

        A
        Silver jet plane, making a turn
                                Gbm                          E
        exciting the brain that expects it to crash and then burn
        Dbm                             Bm
        it's not the life lesson I'd've guessed
        Dbm                             D
        if you're conscious you must be depressed
                    A                   Dbm
        or at least cynical

        Em
        But someone might still eat the steaks
        Gb
        even if they're tough

        D
        Spending the day
        Dbm
        chewing the fat
        Bm                  E                        A
        floating away isn't rough but it's not enough

        A
        Oh Marianne, pass me the joint
        
        the sandpaper's tan

           Gbm                     E
        go-getters are surfing the point
            Dbm                      Bm
        and London's a scratch on the lens
             Dbm            D
        it's over before it begins
        A
        Silk 'round her neck falls down to her shoulders
                             Gbm                      E
        the older I get, the more I suspect there's a trick
            Dbm                        Bm
        but really there's no trick at all
             Dbm                 D
        that doesn't result in a fall
             A                  Dbm
        or a faltering


        Em
        But something might spit out the bait
        Gb
        even if it's real


        D
        Rolling away
        Dbm
        missing the spoke
        Bm                         E                  A           Dbm
        close to the ground like a wheel but it's not joke

        D
        Holding the line
        Dbm
        clutching the phone
        Bm                E                   A
        nobly wasting the night, but it isn't right
                          Gb
        it's not right


        D
        Smelling for blood
        Dbm
        praying for rain
        Bm                 E                   A
        running away isn't rough, but it's not enough


Let the last A chord ring.


Part E (04:56 - 05:59):


        Eb                      Gm                   Cm       Fm     Cm
                The low tide is telling me when it's over,
        Bb                    Dm            Gm
                to breathe in everything exposed
        Eb                      Gm                   Cm       Fm     Cm
                and comes back to cover me with a blanket
        Bb                    Dm            Gm
                being here's always changing tunes
        Cm      Bb     F      Eb     Dm     G
        Am      G      Em


Part F (06:07 - 08:21)

        Dm      G7     Am     G      Em     A
        Dm      G7     Am     G      Em     A
        Dm      G7     Am     G      Em     A
        Dm      G7     Am     G      Em     A
        Dm                G7                  Am               G   Em       A
                The empty sky surrounds me but I can't see at all
        Dm                G7               Am         G      Em     A
                wide open arms can feel so cold
        Dm                  G7                Am                G    Em     A
                and you can sit beside me and tell me what it's worth
        Dm                   G7               Am      G      Em     A
                but I hope I die before I get sold
        Dm               G7               Am          G      Em     A
                I hope I die before I get sold
        Dm                 G7               Am                G      Em     A
                I'd rather die before I get sold


Part G (08:22 - 08:58):


           Dm           C             Bdim.
        If you find the soul that you lost
        E                   Am
                frozen in a starry void
        Dm      C                   G
        Take it within and hope the sight of blood
                          C
        can will signs of life to return
        Dm          C           Bdim.
        Back to the way that it was
        E                      Am
                long before it made a noise
        Dm         C       G
        To keep on quietly reminding you
                     Cmaj7
        what's never created or destroyed



Part H (08:59 - 09:11):


        Fmaj7 x8 - Cmaj7 x8 - Fmaj7 x8



Part A (09:12 - 09:52):


        Same as the first Part A, A minor, C major, and Amaj7 are played with the 
two top strings (B and high E) being open, but still strummed.


        Am                  C
                Wake as the swell peaks
            Am                      C
        the close-outs drowning the birds with roars
        Bbm                         Cm
                and howls scare the new unkindness
             Bbm              Cm             Amaj7
        that picks and laughs at the carrion scene


        Am                 C
                Forces you see breathe 
            Am             C
        can always go into hiding
        Bbm                      Cm
                and wait 'til it passes over
           Bbm                   Cm
        or stay far gone for all eternity


Let the final Cm chord ring.


Part I (09:55 - 12:10):

        A major x8 - A flat minor x8
        
        Repeat these two chords until the fade-out.

Sweet! But you should change the first part so it looks like this:

Am	C	Bbm	Cm	A	

Am C
Sleep as the goer

Am C
the bridge that watches the light speed through

Bbm Cm
And cries while the spirit stumbles

Bbm Cm A
and inside missile for the protection of you

Am C
Maybe it's silent

Am C
the voice can't bear anymore strain

Bbm Cm
but speaks without even knowing

Bbm Cm A
and streams out of sight in the direction of truth


Otherwise, really good job!

Thanks for the correction, but I'm not really sure what you suggested.

Just moving the first few chords in the very beginning over to the left?

No no, take a look at this:
Bbm Cm A
and inside missile for the protection of you

It's supposed to be an A-major chord where he sings "you" instead of the Am, but it later turns to an A-minor when he starts singing again :)
