**** 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

When we're on different sides of the globe
I thought we'd keep our veins tangled
like a pair of mic cables,
And if there ain't enough slack to reach
that we'd solder them together
and across oceans they'd stretch.
Our faces reflected in separate windshields
and all our body hair pricked up
an elephant eyelash.
Should we be tempted by thief or saint
it seems I leave and you stay
to crawl the cage and curse.
But don't regret the done dirt,
there is no life plan set,
you just swallow the cold
and follow your breath until death.
Now even if the will to sleep persists
I can't 'cause a harsh cloth, it grazes my blisters.

There was a moth caught in the soapdish
laminated in lye
Will you still remember me well
If I don't get to two-o-o-five?
My dead line Gemini.

Today I fell asleep in a bath of hair.
Hair that once sprouted from my own
white wet chalk follicles.
I swallow a coal
and follow my breath
and I did it with the grapefruit soap
thinking of you.
Bathed, shaved, and oiled,
your legs are two skinny dolphins swimming
between the mattress and the layers of bedding
turning in your drug dry sleep.
When I ask you to kiss my pulse
you offer to start the shower.
I want a verb and you give me a noun.
What do you dream up while I tongue you down?

There was a moth caught in the soapdish
laminated in lye
Will you still remember me well
If I don't get to two-o-o-five?
My dead line Gemini.

You know my build.
You know my size.
The degree to which my eyes
are astigmatic.

...the rest of the words.
