   (back to chorus riff) 

During chorus, "toy piano" sound can be recreated by picking 
D & G strings behind the nut:

   B------------------------| 
   G----0----0----0----0----| 
   D--0----0----0----0------| 
   A------------------------| 
   E------------------------| 

verse: 

the creature in the sky  
got sucked in a hole 
now there's a hole now in the sky 
and the ground's not cold 
and if the ground's not cold 
everything is gonna burn 
we'll all take turns 
i'll get mine too 

(chorus)
