Intro
D - F#m - C - D

D - F#m - C - Em

D - F#m - C - D

D - F#m - C - Cadd9 - C



D      F#m         C        D  
all my friends are vultures in a way

D            F#m       C   Em
when i'm not dead they fly away

D        F#m         C           D
circling around some other still living prey

D                   F#m       C                 D
waiting for them to crawl so they can eat their face



D          F#m   C           D 
and in the salty underground everywhere

D            F#m        C     Em
there's more roots than i can bear

D       F#m                  C                   D
growing down and around some bastard's preserved mastodon's hair

D                           F#m             C                      D
and sure the archaeologists knew that their souls were still there too

D             F#m      C            D
and all these species' secrets left in the slate

D             F#m       C                    Em
?nu?fay?vee?uh?wayd? so spawn the industrial age

D           F#m   C        D
but all our basic concepts basically say that it's

D              F#m         C             D
all relatively arranged in such familiar ways

C             D
such familiar ways  x3

C
in such...

D
...familiar ways



D           F#m      C        D
the new someday soon run away from me

D        F#m       C          Em
draw one more scar hard on my heart

D                 F#m      C               D
the flesh is much stronger where it's been torn once

D                F#m
like an arc weld holds -

C                                      D
holds... things together 'till they're apart



D          F#m         C        D
and all my friends are vultures in a way

D            F#m        C            Em
when i'm not alive they are over and away

D          F#m         C            D
fluttering around this carcass just casually eating my brains

D                    F#m       C                D
no feathers on their heads, no flesh left on my face



D          F#m    C           D
and in the shifty underground everywhere

D                  F#m        C            Em
there's a few more roots than i can really bear

D          F#m         C           D
and on the surface the lights wide open where

D              F#m 
the water runs to 

C                 D
like the roots... do



D              F#m          C              D
and i knew someday the ruin might be built by me

D             F#m           C            Em
just one more stone stacked ridiculously high

D                 F#m    C               D
the solid is much weaker where it's been worn some by the

D         F#m
weather's lows -

C      D
low... pressure zones
