Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Here's another Naive Thieves song, the second that I've tabbed (check out Anxiété).

Suggestion: Barr Chords for EVERYTHING. And you should probably play them high up on the guitar, like the C on
the 8th fret E string instead of the 3rd fret A string, and the G on the 1oth fret A string instead of the
3rd fret E string, etc.

If you have any suggestions, corrections, or anything else, please leave a comment below :)

[Verse 1]

C       G         C      Em
You god damned alabaster bastards,
C       G                    C           Em
shaking constitutions softer than a sand castle
        Dm                 G
Oh your fickle words don't make me bat one lash.

C G C


[Verse 2]

C         G               C        Em
But I got shackled to the same old bull
C            G                C    Em
Got me on my knees praying to holy smoke
       Dm               G              C G C 
Oh I'd rather die than see you pacified.

     C             G               Bb                            F
Well I could never lie or fawn but every now and then I need the denouement.
C                    Dm    G           C G C
Something more than just a means to an end.

[Verse 3]

C     G                      C       Em     
Blasé billows drifted in the dead of night, 
C               G                       C       Em
leaving brittle bones to crumble in the morning light.
    Dm               G              C   G   C     
But you won't get an ounce of sympathy from me.


[Verse 4]

C               G               C      Em
Cause I've been working at this all my life.
    C          G          C     Em
And after everything I've sacrificed, 
Dm           G                  C  G  C
I won't feel remorse for heresy.


[Chorus]

     C             G               Bb                            F
Well I could never lie or fawn but every now and then I need the denouement.
C                   Dm     G          Dm   
Something more than just a means to a 


[Bridge]

Dm                        G
More than just a means to get by. 
              Dm                                       G        
And I've been praying for so long for just a little of your time.
              C     G                  Dm         G      F
To prove I'm right. Oh. Deserving this time, am I right?


[Chorus]

     C             G               Bb                            F
Well I could never lie or fawn but every now and then I need the denouement.
    C                 G               Bb                            F
And I can't sing that I'm unique, but all these hypocrites can just create debris and
C                   G                     Bb                    F
You celebrate 'em, and then you hate 'em, I wonder if it's even worth creating
C                   Dm     G           C
Something more than just a means to an end
