Music by James Dean Bradfield and Sean Moore
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):

E-----------------------------5-5--3-1--
B-3--1-3-6-5--5-6-5-3-1-----------------
G-----------------------3-2-3-----------
D---------------------------------------
A---------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------
(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


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


Chorus
------
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

E---5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-8-7---7-8-5-3---1-0-1-12-8

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


Bridge
------
Let chords ring as before


Chorus
------
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
