**** Note: This song is played with capo 3 when I say "C chord" I mean the C form 
3 semi-tones *****
The intro is tabbed as Capo 3 thus 0 is really the third fret on the guitar, 0th fret 
capoed on the 3rd fret

This is how I play this song on guitar.  I tabbed out the into basically how I play the 
part on guitar.  There's also a piano into to the first chorus but that's too much work 
tab.

Verse 1

C
It starts with you
     G                                   F
on a mattress in your parents' old room,
                                C
clipping your toenails into the room
                          F
like the room will fade
                       C
and you will move onto other rooms
Em                 G
and you will go to other places.

Verse 2 (Repeat verse chords above)
Then the wedding,
Then the woman passed out
in the driver's seat
at the order board at White Castle.
We woke her up and she went
'round to the pick up window
like she knew exactly where she was.

Verse 3 (Repeat verse chords above)
Then I wept
with my face in your night shirt,
trying hard as hell to say
"until death separates us,"
loosening the skin on your breastbone,
I painted your nails
and you sleep
while I write all this down.

Chorus 1

C
There was a moth caught in the soapdish laminated in lye

Am
Will you still remember me well
C                     F
If I don't get to two-o-o-five?
   Em        G
my dead line Gemini
