The Meaning of a Ritual by Villagers
(Tabbed by Dylan Colley)
This is the version from Villagers debut LP, Becoming a Jackal, with the unusual 
chords he uses and all.

These are the chords used:

   A:   D:  Bm: Em:  C#7: C#aug7(w5):  F#m:  F#m7:  D/A:  D/Ab:

The song comes in with organ, but it's then joined by acoustic guitar. I'm just 
going to call the C#aug7(w5) the C#aug7 from here on in:

Intro: A D
       A D

A         D
My love is selfish
      Bm       A        Em
And I bet that yours is too
C#7          C#aug7   C#7         F#m   F#m7
What is this peculiar word called truth
Bm    D/A   D/Ab

A          D
My love is selfish
       Bm        A      Em
And it cares not who it hurts
C#7                  C#aug7  C#7    F#m   F#m7
It will cut you out to satisfy its thirst
        Bm           D/A       D/Ab
For the meaning of a ritual so habitual and cursed

A          D
My love is selfish
       Bm    A       Em
How it separates the earth
         C#7        C#aug7   C#7          F#m   F#m7
It takes every shiny stone but leaves the dirt
        Bm             D/A             D/Ab
For the cowards in the corner who just don't know what they're worth
             C#7         C#aug7 C#7      F#m  F#m7
They've been twisted by a hollow kind of pain
         Bm              D/A        D/Ab
Oh I can see it in their eyes but I ignore it every day, coz

A          D
My love is selfish
    Bm        A    Em
And remembers everything
         C#7              C#aug7 C#7       F#m   F#m7
Like the first time it was moved enough to sing
       Bm              D/A               D/Ab
How it dangled on that stage just like a puppet on a string
