Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The chords might be in the wrong place, and may even be the wrong chords. 
The placement is an issue with copy/paste. I tried to fix it, but I may have got it wrong since 
I'm going off memory. The chords being wrong is an issue with this being my first attempt 
at figuring out a song there weren't chords for.

I couldn't find my capo, so this is the no capo version. Someone else can figure out the 
capo version.

C#m  E  A  B


[Verse 1]

A          E           F#m            E            B 
The only thing that's keeping me from driving this car
C#m          E                A         B
Half-light Jackknife into the canyon at night
A          E        F#m       E             B 
Signs and Wonders: Perseus aligned with the skull
C#m      E      A                    B
Slain Medusa: Pegasus alight from us all


[Chorus 1]

    C#m         E             A                           B
Do I care if I survive this? Bury the dead where they're found
     C#m            E          A                          B
In a veil of great surprises, I wonder did you love me at all


[Verse 2]

A        E            F#m             E          B
The only thing that's keeping me from cutting my arm

[Chorus 2]

       C#m       E           A                        B
Do I care if I despise this? Nothing else matters, I know.
       C#m           E        A                        B
In a veil of great disguises, how do I live with your ghost?


[Hook]

          C#m                      B 
Should I tear my eyes out now?
   C#m        A   E                B
Everything I see returns to you somehow.
           C#m                     B
Should I tear my heart out now?
     C#m      A   E                  B
Everything I feel returns to you somehow. mmmm
          A                   B
I want to save you from your sorrow.


[Verse 3]

A        E      F#m      E         B 
The only reason why I continue at all
C#m     E        A                         B
Faith in reason, I wasted my life playing dumb.
A         E        F#m       E           B 
Signs and Wonders: Sea Lion caves in the dark.
C#m          E            A                      B
Blind faith, God's grace, nothing else left to impart.


[Chorus 1]

    C#m        E              A                          B
Do I care if I survive this? Bury the dead where they're found.
     C#m             E        A                        B
In a veil of great surprises, hold onto my head til I drown.

         C#m           E  A                      B
Should I tear my eyes out now before I see too much?
        C#m           E   A                         B
Should I tear my arms off now, I want to feel your touch.


[Hook]

        C#m                      B 
Should I tear my eyes out now?
     C#m      A  E                  B
Everything I see returns to you somehow.
         C#m                     B
Should I tear my heart out now?
     C#m      A   E                  B
Everything I feel returns to you somehow.

Em G C D - "Halflight, jackknife..."

I think it sounds good with capo 8 transpose this tab 8+
And the chords should go F C Dm C G.
I might be wrong.
