be played on electric. Like my favorite song ever, love the lyrics. Help with the rest of
Swim would be appreciated.

Intro (x6):  F5(I)  D5 (D5*)

Verse 1:

Do you hear those distant voices

And sounds through the flames

       D5            D5
The deafening drone

Of these clanking machines

In the lights

It's the same

       D5
We're trying to free

D5                           (D5 palm mute)
The sculpture from the stone

We'll take the rhythm from the throne

If the radio is dying

Listen to me won't you listen to me



------------------------------------------------------------
Chorus:

A#5
I don't want to lie in a bed of ashes

F5(II)
I don't want to burn in a midnight sun

C5
I don't want to know if the system crashes
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/july_for_kings/bed_of_ashes_crd.html ]
                                     G5  A5
I don't want to go if it's just begun

A#5
I don't want to lie in a bed of ashes

F5(II)                                   Intro (x4)
I don't want to burn in the midnight sun

In the midnight sun
------------------------------------------------------------

Verse 2:

I scream like a madman in the morning

No one heard a thing

      D5         D5
I had hoped for a more effective warning

No one felt the sting

D5       D5     (D5 palm mute)
Someone's savior never saved

Take it away 'till there's nothing left to say

The radio is dying

Listen to me

Won't you listen to me


Chorus


Bridge:

A#5 (palm mute)
Dancing like a child

Will we feel at all

Or just smile in another pretty prison

G5 (palm mute)
The wires frayed and broken free

       (pick scrape down)
It's loud as hell but I don't want to listen

A#5 (palm mute)
Is existentialism so desperate?

(pick scrape up)
Condition may seem painful but it won't last

G5 (palm mute)
   I just march, march

Sometimes I get the last laugh


A#5       D5
 Machines    and dreams

F5           G5
 To make the choices for you

A#5       D5
 Machines    and dreams

F5            G5
 I won't go out like that

A#5       D5
 Machines    and dreams

F5           G5
 To make the choices for you

A#5       D5            
 Machines    and dreams--

D5
I won't go out


Chorus (x2)

Ending (Intro x4)
