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
Bridge (Let chords ring)

My [Dm]idea of love comes [C]from
A childhood [Bb]glimpse of pornogra[C]phy
Though there [Dm]is no true [C]love
Just a [Bb]finely tuned jealou[C]sy

[C]Life becoming a [F]landslide[Dm]
Ice [Bb]freezing, nature [C]dead
Life becoming a [F]landslide[Dm]
I don't [Bb]wanna be a [C]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
De[Bb]sire on its [C]knees
