[Verse]

        Bm      A        G         Em 
i think i'll go home and mull this over
         D       A       G 
before i cram it down my throat
        Bm        A              G      Em 
at long last it's crashed, the colossal mass
           D       A          G 
has broken up into bits in my moat.


[Chorus]

Em*      D*       Em*     D*
lift the mattress off the floor
Em*      D*
walk the cramps off
   A*             G*
go meander in the cold
Em*          D*
hail to your dark skin
Em*        D*
hiding the fact you're dead again
Em*  D*               A*           G*         
underneath the powerliness seeking shade
G*
far above our heads are the icy heights that contain all reason


[Verse]

       Bm       A      G         Em 
it's a luscious mix of words and tricks
            D            A              G 
that let us bet when you know we should fold
   Bm      A         G          Em 
on rocks i dreamt of where we'd stepped
           D             A               G 
and of the whole mess of roads we're now on.


[Chorus]

Em*       D*        Em*     D*
hold your glass up, hold it in
Em*     D*                  A*              G*
never betray the way you've always known it is.
Em*     D*                Em*
one day i'll be wondering how
         D*                 Em*
i got so old just wondering how
        D*               A*             G*
i never got cold wearing nothing in the snow.

G*
this is way beyond my remote concern 
of being condescending


[Bridge]

Bm  G     D    A    Bm    G     D 
all these squawking birds won't quit.
Bm  G    D  A      Bm  G   D 
building no-thing, lay-ing bricks.


[W/ organ solo]

Bm  A   G   Em   D   A   G   REPEAT 2x


[Chorus]

Em*       D*        Em*     D*
hold your glass up, hold it in
Em*     D*                  A*              G*
never betray the way you've always known it is.
Em*     D*                Em*
one day i'll be wondering how
         D*                 Em*
i got so old just wondering how
        D*               A*             G*
i never got cold wearing nothing in the snow.

G*
this is way beyond my remote concern
of being condescending


[Bridge]

Bm  G     D    A    Bm    G     D 
all these squawking birds won't quit.
Bm  G    D  A      Bm  G   D 
building no-thing, lay-ing bricks.

for the part that goes, "all these squawking birds won't quit, building nothing laying bricks", it's the same chords as the verse, Bm A G Em. other than that, great tab, the shins are indeed awesome.
