The song is in 6/4 - I think that's the best fit - but there are a few mixed meter things to watch out for. Also, I see no reason not play this in standard tuning, even though I'm sure Thrice does it dropped. (And all the fall over the word they happen on.) Am Dm F G Am Am Dm F G A (major) Am I stand on the cliffs with my son next to me; Dm This island our prison, our home. Am And everyday we look out at the sea; Dm This place is all he's ever known. Am But I've got a plan and some wax and some string; Dm Some feathers I stole from the birds. Am Dm And we leap from the cliff and we hear the wind sing a song that's too perfect for words. F Am C But son, please keep a steady wing; G#-5 You know you're the only one that means anything to me. F E7 Am Steer clear of the sun, or you'll find yourself in the sea Am Dm F G Am Now safely away, I let out a cry Dm That we'll make the mainland by noon. Am But Icarus climbs higher still in the sky; Dm Maybe I've spoken too soon. F Am C Oh son, please keep a steady wing G#-5 And know you're the only one who means anything to me F E7 F Steer clear of the sun, or you'll find yourself in the sea Am C Won't you look at your wings? G#-5 They're coming undone; they're splitting at the seams. F E7 Am Steer clear of the sun; for once won't you listen to me? [There's a little melodic riff here that repeats for a long time, but I don't do tabs putting the notes would probably just confuse everyone, so moving along...] F Dm Oh gods, why is this happening to me? Am C All I wanted was a new life, for my son to grow up free. F Dm And now you took the only thing that meant anything to me. Am C I will never fly again; I will hang up my wings [Repeat] F Dm Oh gods! Am C [Repeat and fade out] This is an incredible song, and probably my favorite on the entire Alchemy Index. If figures out the B chord, send me an IM on AIM. I'm curious.
