(Thanks to Chris for lyrics help!)

This is like my third(?) tab. It sounds right to me.
Corrections welcome!
If anyone would like to tackle Honest James off of this album,
that'd be great.

Dropped D tuning.

Starts with some feedback that I didn't tab. Sorry!

Then do the whole bridge over again.
Then the 2nd part of the verse a couple times, then the intro twice.
Back again into the verse, chorus, end.

Basic chords version:
(Please excuse the lyrics after the first chorus.
They're unintelligible at times.)

Verse 1
     D   
You step on the purple vale
 G               A
Emit shards of a screaming halo.
     D
You strap on your rainbow sail.
  G              A
Rainbow resin, a sticky cyclone

 D                                        G
Oh, how i love the smell of your charred remains
Nothing better
  D                                      G
Than to meet your sweetheart in severed chains
It's love forever.

Chorus
  A                         G
Yeah, I'll always be your friend.
     A                           G
Oh yeah, at least just till the end.

Verse 2
D
Our burner switches hit
  G                 A
Instant meltdown, free-fry the ghost town.
D
Fresh battery head trip.
 G                     A
Love it to death, how, go child strum sound.

 D                                      G
Never leave you alone, harsh and heavy drone.
To cook a sizzle soft beat.
D                                G
Pre-historic love, electric catacomb.
I see your look goes to me.

Chorus

Bridge

Verse 3
D
Pardon me, purple vale.
      G             A
The ticket of the girl who loves you.
D
She rides the high rail
  G                A
Devotional dogma crackles above you

D                                      G
And all the startled tones chilling tonight
Sweet circular motions
D                             G
Amplify a moon dot(?) in her sight
And love smiles through me.

Chorus. End on G.

Yay! Enjoy!
