Intro: He starts out looping a bunch of violin ascensions and descensions in A. Here is
first one he plays:
   [A]                                                                                         
e|----5--4------------|
B|----------7---------|
G|-------------5------|
D|--------------------|
A|--------------------|
E|--------------------|


Then he switches to guitar and plays this:

|: A Dm A :| A Dm E
e|-------------1---------------------------1----0---|
B|------------3------2--------------------2-----0---|
G|-----------2------2--------------------3------1---|
D|---------0-------2--------------------0-------2---|
A|-0-0-0-0--------0-----------0-0-0-0-0---------2---|
E|----------------------------------------------0---|


At this point Andrew strums an A before starting to sing. This riff is played over the
verse, to the same time of the lyrics.

Turnstiles on mezzanine
Jet ways and Dramamine fiends and x-ray machines
You were hurling through [D]space
G-Forces twisting your face
Breeding super[A]stition
A fatal premo[E]nition

You know you’ve got to en[D]vision
The fiery c[A]rash

[E]Oh, close your eyes and you [D]wake up
Face stuck to a [A]vinyl settee
[E]Oh, the line was starting to [D]break up
Just as you were [A]starting to say
    [A]                                                                                        
e|--------------------------|

D|--------------------------|
A|--4--2--4--2--0--4--2--0--|
E|--------------------------|

Something, apropos, I don’t know. (Riff played to same time as lyrics)

Then the musical break, the chords are: A D A E D A. Listen to the recording for time.

Play the first two lines using the same riff from the first verse.

Beige tiles and magazines
Lou Dobbs and the CNN team on every monitor screen
You were caught in the [D]crossfire
Where every human face has you reaching for your mace
So it's kind of an impo[A]sition ... fatal premonition

[E]To save our lives you've got to en[D]vision
[E]To save all our lives you've got to en[D]vision
[E]Well to save all our lives you've got to en[D]vision ... [A]the fiery crash

The Dm > A parts are played with the same picking pattern as the intro.

[Dm]It's just a formality  [A]
Why [Dm]must I explain?    [A]
Just a [Dm]nod to mortality[A]
Before you [E]get on ... before you get on a[A] plane


[E]Oh, close your eyes and you wake[D] up
Face stuck to a [A]vinyl settee
[E]Oh, the line was starting to break[D] up
What was that you were [A]going to say?

At any time during the song, you can use the Dsus’s and Asus’s to supplement any normal
or A. I hope this is help and I’m very sure it’s accurate. Please email me at
or PM with any questions or problems, and please comment.
Peace
Zach
