Intro  some D picking varies a bit
-------|      and so on

(one string at a time)

G                    Bm                          Am
At the center of the world there's a statue of a girl
                       C           D               G
She is standing near a well with a bucket bare and dry
                             Bm                          Am
I went and looked her in the eyes and she turned me into sand
                           C                  D           G
This clumsy form that I despise, it scattered easy in her hand

                       Bm                          Am
It came to rest upon a beach with a million others there
                          C                          D             G
We sat and waited for the sea to stretch out so that we could disappear
                        Bm                          Am
Into the endlessness of blue into the horror of the truth
                             C                  D                Em
See, we are far less than we knew, yeah, we are far less than we knew

Em                        C
But we knew what we could taste
Girls found honey to drench our hands
The men cut marble to mark our graves

Said we'll need something to

(mostly the lower notes for this part)
[ Tab from: ]
G            B           Am          C          D

remind us of
All the sweetness that has passed through us
The priests dressed children for a choir
But found no joy in what was sung
B   C       D   D G
The funeral had begun

G                    Bm                              Am
In the middle of the day when you drive home to your place
                             C                 D                       G
From that job that makes you sleep back to the thoughts that keep you awake
Long after night has come to claim any light that still remains
                     C              D
In the corner of the frame

(lower notes again for this part)

that you put around her face

Two pills just weren't enough
The alarm clock's going off but you're not waking up
          C                                       D
This isnt happening happening happening happening happening
It is

end riff (something like this)
