E                                B                  C#m
   Facedown with the LA curbside ending    with the ones and zeros
E                            B                       C#m
   Downtown was a perfect place to hide
E                        B
   First star that I saw last night was the headlight of a manmade sky    But
E                            B
   Man made never made our dreams collide       collide

E                        E/D#                                   A
Here we are now with the fallen sky and the rain          Were awakening
E                        E/D#                                    A

E                   B                    C#m
Maybe it's called ambition   You've been talking in your sleep about a dream
We're awakening

all the strings and lets the rest of the band play the melody cause he stays in the Esus 
Could possibly be playing [XX9900] and just lets the Tim (bass player) play
bass notes. But I play the chords without a bass player; I won't tell if you don't.

The intro/riff at the top has a chord progression in parentheses. Drew Shirley, the Lead
plays these as octaves E [x7x9xx] F#[x9x'11'xx] and so up the neck.

I chorded the song off of a cell phone recording so the lyrics are only as good as the
