Lyrics by Richey James and Nicky Wire
Tabbed by Matt Nicholls

Verse 1
During this the classical guitars plays along with the singer with various
little bits added on. It goes something likes this (repeat x4):

(Add a few steps inbetween notes and experiment with a few hammer-ons
and pull-offs)

Childbirth tears upon her muscles
Very first, second a screaming icon
Babies in time barely even recognise
Words that once stroked now bruising tired lips

[ Tab from: ]
Bridge (Let chords ring)
   Dm                 C
My idea of love comes from
            Bb                 C
A childhood glimpse of pornography
             Dm         C
Though there is no true love
       Bb                 C
Just a finely tuned jealousy

C               F           Dm
Life becoming a landslide
    Bb               C
Ice freezing, nature dead
                F           Dm
Life becoming a landslide
        Bb         C
I don't wanna be a man

Verse 2
Here the guitars and bass come in heavy, playing something likes this


Everyday more numb to agony
This the howl, this the sigh of the lonely
One day I realise oil on canvas
Can never paint a petal oh so delicate

Let chords ring as before

Repeat the chorus twice

Instrumental Verse

Second Chorus
Same chords as first chorus

Life becoming a landslide
A mile empty inside
Life becoming a landslide
Desire on its knees

Repeat and end on

  Bb          C
Desire on its knees
