Capo: 3rd Fret. 
All chords relative to capo.

Note: The G chord used through much of the song is a slight variation, it is 
[320030] instead of [320003].


That intro is not exact, but it's just basic finger picking of the two main chords.


G            G
  I saw your father in the hall

G              D
  His ghost is living in the walls

Cadd9          Cadd9
   I heard him crying while you slept

Cadd9          D
   I heard him breaking things after you left

   I watched you crawl into my bed
   With curses spilling from your head
   You said "We're just the walking dead"
   So I pulled the trigger and we floated off
   Into the air, into the air
   Into the air, into the air
   We're in the air, we're in the air
   Up in the air, up in the air
   I used to worry about the time
   That I lost my teeth along the line
   So I carved the apple from my eye
   And gave it to you before I went away
   Blood ran into the kitchen sink
   Your hand and lives are running pink
   I sat and watched you as your ring
   Slipped off and rolled across the kitchen floor
   They cut your 
   Eyes wide open
   And pour into 
   Your precious head
   My reach don't 
   Go that far dear
   But please oh 
   Please don't let them in


Em   F#m    Cadd9  Bm    G
   I sank into the sea

Em         F#m  Cadd9  Bm    G
   Wrapped in piano strings

Em     F#m         Cadd9  Bm    G
   Few words could open me

Em   F#m    Cadd9               D
   But you knew them all

   Now I just sleep beneath your floor
   My ghost just tries to keep you warm
   I've seen the end, I've lost the war
   One day you're 20 years just like the rain
   I hear the engines
   They're roaring in our mouths
   The smell of creatures
   Are falling tooth and nail to get out
   I see the airplanes
   They're pouring from the chest
   They fill the air
   And burn and bury just like the rest
