The Handshake  MGMT

In the parts that follow this progression:
[G] [G/F#] [Em] {A] [D] [A] [Bm]
You toss all the mornings lost to the clouds and you watch it go
just clip the open A string on the way to the following chord rather than play the chord itself.
Great band, great song, great lyrics.....enjoy
[A] [G] 
I just shook the handshake
[G] [D] 
I just sealed the deal
[A] [G] 
I'll try not to let them
[G] [D] 
Take everything they can steal
[A] [G] 
People always told me
[G] [D] 
Don't forget your roots
[A] [G] [G] [D] 
I know I can feel them underneath my leather boots
[G] [G/F#] [Em] {A] [D] [A] [Bm]
You toss all the mornings lost to the clouds and you watch it go
[G] [G/F#] [Em] {A] [D] [A] [Bm]
Your fairweather friends on a parachute binge get lost when the wind blows
[G] [G/F#] [Em] 
The handshake's stuck on the tip of my tongue
[Bm] 
It tastes like death but it looks like fun
[B] 
I was a loner
[E] [D#] [G#m] 
I was just waiting by myself
[B] [D] 
When you, warped temptress
[B] [E] 
Rose to bring me happiness and wealth
[E] [D#] [D] [A] 
Black tears, black smile, black credit cards and shoes
[A] 
You can call all the people you want
[E] [F#] 
But it's you who's being used
[B] 
Under your black eyes, honey
[E] [D#] [G#m] 
Right beneath your nose
[B] [D] 
A curse on all creation
[B] [E] 
Every single thing you know
[E] [D#] [D] [A] 
White smoke, white light, white marble on the floor
[A] [E] [F#] 
It would only take a few seconds of darkness to figure out what's in store
Little girl
[G] [G/F#] [Em] {A] [D] [A] [Bm]
Ohhhh You convince yourself that you want it, but you don't know
[G] [G/F#] [Em] {A] [D] [A] [Bm]
You keep trying to wash the blood from your hands, but it won't go
[G] [G/F#] [Em] 
We're gonna keep you on the run
[Bm] 
We got the handshake under our tongue
[Bm] 
We got the handshake under our tongue
[Bm] 
We got the handshake under our tongue
[Bm] 
We got the handshake under our tongue
[Bm] 
We got the handshake x15
