The End.


Great True Emo song. Great True Emo band. This is around 99% correct. You can fool
around and do little variations of the licks, but for the most part this is correct. Enjoy.

Lyrics:

I - I believed - memory might mirror no reflections on me.
I - I believed - that in forgetting I might set myself free.

But I woke up this morning, with a piece of past caught in my throat - and then I choked.

I - I bled - I tried to hide the heart from the head.
I - I bled - in the arms of a girl I'd barely met.

And I woke up this morning with the present in splinters on the ground - and then I drowned...

And if I can't see it's for want of...

You - you said, "I see", if there's nothing here then it's probably mine.
My - My turn to see, if there's nothing here t hen it's always be mine.

I - I guess I've learned the taste of days that will always burn.
I - I guess I've learned if it's in the corner of my eye I can't always turn.

And if I don't see it's for want of...

this is what Guy Piccioto, singer of Rites of spring says about "emo"

'Well, first of all, I don't recognize that attribution. I've never recognized "emo" as a genre of music. I always thought it was the most retarded term ever.'

Great song, great tab.

Though I will say in that bridge bit towards the end. It sorta sounds like it's etiher muting between the notes of the 5th fret, or doing little pull offs to the open string like this
Bridge:
e|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|-----7--7---------7--7-----------|
D|---5------5~----5-------5p05p05~-|
A|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|

Sorta along those lines, if you listen to it you might hear it a little better and get a feel for the rhythm :)
