Sonic Youth - Theresa's sound world
Standard tuning. Numbers in curly braces mean you should play them when you 
feel like it or when it sounds right. Kim does this I am sure but I don't know 
exactly where. I'll leave you to figure it out. It is not 100% correct but best 
to my ear. Feel free to improvise.

Turn off your distortion, go back to intro then skip interlude and go to before
chorus. Then play the riff where you stomp on distortion. 
Then - still on sixteenths

"Kinda like a cloud I was up, was up, way up in the sky and I was feeling 
some feelings you wouldn't believe, sometimes I don't believe it myself and 
i decided i was never coming down 
Just then a tiny little dot caught my eye it was just about too small to see 
but i watched it way too long, it was pulling me down...."
