Seen Andrew play F#7 like this for MX Missles:
F#7
E--0--|

G--3--|
D--4--|
A-----|
E-----|

And plays most bar chords on those four high strings. The album version has
the capo
way up but all live versions are without.

Intro:
Bm F# Bm F# G D F# G G D G D E A F#

Bm
those that will judge will say you\'re aloof
Bm E
but you know the truth is a seed you know what you need
A F#7
is a conflagration
Bm
cause when I see your blood and the bits of your broken tooth
Bm E
it gives me the proof that I need it\'s the proof that you bleed
A D F#7 F#
and it\'s a revelation / yeah it\'s a revelation / it\'s a revelation

D G Bm A
I thought you were a life-sized paper doll
D G Bm A
propped up in the hardware store
D G Bm A
propped up on the front lawn watching the parade
D G Bm A
of those legionnaires with two by fours
Bm E
As they\'re marching off to wars
A F#7
Yeah they\'re marching off to wars

Bm F#7
I didn\'t know what you were made of
Bm F#7
color of your blood what you\'re afraid of
G D
are you made of calcium or are you carbon based
F# G
cause if you\'re made of calcium I\'ll have to take a taste
G D
\'Cause listen, calcium is deadly, but tender to the tooth
G D
but it\'s one sure-fire way to know if you\'re mx-missile proof
E A A7
oh no, or if you\'re just aloof

Bm F#7
and you were in the ground in late November
Bm F#7
though the leaves and earth were damp
G D
did you think they would remember
F# G
how you almost made state champ
G D
and when you\'re running for the game against Alfonsus
G D
and you fell up on the ground and chipped your tooth
E
listen, that might really have surprised us
A A7
to learn that maybe you weren\'t really mx-missiles proof

D A
whoa, I thought you were a life-sized paper doll
D A
and you\'re propped up in the hardware store
D A
you were propped up on the front lawn watching the parade
D A
of those legionnaires with two by fours
G A D
as they\'re marching off to wars
G A D
yeah they\'re marching off to wars
G D A D
Ohh they\'re marchinnn
