Oceanwalk  Astronautalis

This tab is in STANDARD, however, tuning a whole step down and playing from the key of E sounds much better.
Here is the transposed chords for tuning a whole step down:
[D] [-] [E]  
[G] [-] [A]  
[A] [-] [B]  
[Bm] [-] [C#m]  
Small Riff throughout the song:

Just repeat as needed.
Seeing an asterisk (*) next to a chord means to only hit the chord once.
Anything in parenthesis is merely a suggestion, not in the actual song, though it does make it sound better
40 steps to the end of the private lives
54 steps on to the upturned hand
Bm* (A*)
233 steps towards the hidden garden
527 steps to the lion?s mountain
184 steps to the etching box
376 steps to the walking planks
Bm* (A*)
433 steps to the watchtower on the sea
17 steps down to the beach
I saw the door and I looked through the entrance
Stare down night sky, dot pattern seeming endless
Bm* (A*)
Broken friendship, dandy dog on leash
Door latch caught spot, shoe stomp on street
[D]Tape deck plays and the reels will spin
[G]Suburb sound close down as boom-bap begin
[Bm]Red face hide in the shades of the [(A)]trees
[G]As buggered blue moonlight pass through the leaves
[D]Carry out my concerning deeds in the deprivation of the darkness
[G]The com-com-comfort of cave-dweller locked inside of apartment
[Bm]Spark this with the marked mistakes of minors [(A)]learning
[G]How to build a better book of matches by watching the fire burning
[D]Count all my dreams on a pair of Pinocchio fingers
[G]And trace the trail back home by the tumbling splinters
[Bm]A silly beginner, basic apprentice aggr[(A)]ession
[G]In the absence of a master, trying to make up my own lesson
D* G*
Who knew I would, I would wait such a long time
Bm* A*
Who knew I would, I would wait such a long time
From the [G]dreams to leaves to the cracks in the pavement
To the [D]roaches and rats to the armoured cars pacing
From the s[G]pies to the thieves to the cross-eyed complainers
To the... [D]ain't that long when you count out the paces
From the b[G]reach to the tracks to the aliens with statements
To the g[D]rief to the cr*p that they all want to wade in
To the [D/C#]forth and back, the forth and back
There is no turning back, back, back, back [D]again
[D]Secrets explode whether you mean it or not
[G]I locked my dreams with the right keys but I worked the wrong lock
[Bm]The strong box screws split quick before I could r[(A)]etighten
[G]I learned lightening strikes and leaves before language leaks it lightens
[D]The waking of the dead to live and work with the freaks
[G]I was a vampire roaming streets when I would swear I'is a sleep
[Bm]The beeping of the buzzer burn my brain the next [(A)]day
[G]I tried to brush my teeth but never could remove the blood stains
[D]A double life of moonlighting grows tiring from trying
[G]If you got to work a day job and keep the villagers from rioting
[Bm]The list of lies, lengthened longer, left life laymen [(A)]honest
[G]Invited the world into my home to show the bones stacked in my closet
[D]A dumb little skeleton walking miles to chase a silly dream
[G]Stubborn skull, split shoes, punctuated by abrasive feet
[Bm]All the while stalking, walking, awkward through the [(A)]night
[G]In the stomach of the suburbs with a dog by my side
