CENTIPEDE

Something like this is played along by another guitar, I guess.
                                             Eb                  Bb

A||------------------------------------------6---6-----6---6--------------------------|
E||--------------------------------------------------------------6---6-----6---6------|

    C                                        Eb                  Bb

Those [1] and [2] marks represent two little riffs that are played (by what seems to be 
an third guitar) in between the chords:

[1]
e||---------||
B||--6/8/5--||
D||---------||
G||---------||
A||---------||
E||---------||

[2]
e||-----------||
B||--5-5p3----||
D||--------5--||
G||-----------||
A||-----------||
E||-----------||

Interlude (it's the moment between the next verse):
     C                                          x4
e||---------------------------------------------||
B||o-------------------------------------------o||
G||----0-----0---0-----0---0-----0-----0-----0--||
D||------2h4~~-----2h4~~-----2h4-/-4h5---2h4----||
A||o-3~~-------3~~-------3~~-------------------o||
E||---------------------------------------------||

This phrase is played along with the interlude's riff.
e||----------------|---------------|----------|---------------||
B||----------------|---------------|----------|---------------||
D||------0-2p0-----|---------------|----------|-----0-2p0-----||
G||--2h4-------4p2-|-0h2h4-5/4-2p0-|-0-2h4/5--|-2h4-------4p2-||
A||----------------|---------------|----------|---------------||
E||----------------|---------------|----------|---------------||

Verse 2:
     C                                          x8
e||---------------------------------------------||

That's what I have so far!


Lyrics (I am not sure about the lyrics either. I got them from various sites and by 
hearing and put it together, in what I think it's the most accurate, but still some verses 
don't make perfect sense):

This is goodbye
Goodbye to all those little crimes
Screaming inside
It ain't enough to turn the tide
Just so

I let them go
Unpinning butterflies
In the hopes they'll come alive
Alive

Foolish, I know
The bread crumbs home were all devoured
After charades
I love the way you wear your face
Just so

I let them go
Unpinning butterflies
In the hopes they'll come alive

I let them go
Unpinning butterflies
In the hopes they'll come alive

Climb the same old wall
To the top and fall
Again

Can you hear me call
In the hopes they'll all
Come alive

First sign of a locust swarm
A worried mind; a thunderstorm
Wrapped in heaven's knowing view
The eye of a needle few get through
I saw you sitting in your room
Weaving plans in sorrow's loom
Solace chatter deal in vain
No core, no poets to feings the rain
Of hopeless, dreaming, time disturbed
Friends and family, needling curb
Away in your imagined box
The chains on chains and locks on locks

Take holding onto centipede
A hundred hearts and all you need
A marble Venus works in song
As short in love as life is long

Take holding onto centipede
A hundred hearts and all you need
A Venus marble works in song
As short in love as life is long



To be continued... (hopefully, some good soul will help me!)
