                             BIG HOUSES - Squalloscope
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ella

Tuning: Standard

This song has two parts: the verses in the beginning and a different bit at the end. If 
you're more into
strumming, you can also use Em Dsus2 C C for the verses, and C Dsus2 Em Dsus 2 for the 
end bit, and it'll
sound about right.

For the Intro and Verses, it's this pattern over and over again. Essentially, repeat 
until Verses stop.

   the bell jar        you put  over this goodbye, I'd rather
   leave this  embrace between you and I.  etc etc


This is all the way until the verses end with "how could I ever believe every word it 
says to me". This same
pattern repeats a few times still after that and then it goes into the B-part, with "We 
follow our own steps"
and the pattern changes to this:

  C              Em7/D          Em             Em7/D
e|-------0------|-------0------|-------0------|-------0------|

  own            steps while our shadows keep watching us


And this pattern repeats until the end.

Lyrics:

   Prayer is
   the bell jar you put over this goodbye, I'd rather
   leave this  embrace between you and I. Let's
   lock out the bearded old man in the nightgown, he can
   tap against the glass but I'm not coming out. I built
   bridges with these arms, I will not build a fortress, in the
   circle around the kitchen table I say my prayers because I feel blessed,
   secretly hoping while joining hands that you can't
   feel my trembling fingertips. If I sign this
   piece of paper do I sell my soul along with my duties and we won't
   put our money where your catholic mouth is. Even though
   the teeth are long gone there's still bone beneath the gums and there's a lot
   of potential in a mighty organ. And they
   told us not to clap so we clap as loud as we can because the re-
   verb in those holy halls is like a long-lost friend. It keeps
   hitting the walls and comes all the way back again back
   back again, back again. I want
   trees instead of gravestones and nothing to confess. I've got a
   soft spot for your ancient books of horror stories. I've got a
   music in my ear from long long ago and far far a-
   way and I still hum its tune but how could I ever believe every word it says to
   me?

   We follow our
   own steps while our shadows keep watching us,
   own steps while our shadows keep watching us,
   own steps while our shadows keep watching us. The
   wrong step would be not to start this exo-
   dus.
