The Freest Man  Tilly and the Wall

Artist -- Tilly and the Wall
Song -- The Freest Man
Album -- Bottoms of Barrels
Tabbed by -- Lainason
C, F, Dm, G
There's a [C]boy I know, he has a heart of glass
It is [F]gold inside but it has crystallized
It is [Dm]beautiful but in its tragedy
It is [G]hard to hold without shattering
He calls him[C]self at night, in soft over-chords
Keeps coming [F]back to it, his voice and echo coarse
Till the [Dm]sound's so thick it turns the sky to smoke
And the [G]greyest days the predictions told
But this [C]boy I know, he is pure of soul
Just gets [F]lost sometimes in his chemicals
Under a [Dm]coat of night, it's oh-so-comforting
And that [G]first breaking light becomes his enemy
He calls so [C]late tonight, it is 4 a.m.
He is [F]drunk, he can't find his apartment
I don't [Dm]like how it feels when I think of him
All [G]hooded in black, lost and stumbling
The [F]days start to [G]fade out of the [Am]frame
Like they're [F]blurring into [C]someone else's [G]name
You [C]try your hardest to rewind the tapes
But you're pre[F]pared every day to make the same mistakes
Step [Dm]out of that life
It's nowhere [G]near your time
Just re[C]member you called it all bullshit
Well, it [F]is and if you stop giving into it
You can [Dm]walk away the fr[G]eest man
This [C]boy I know lives in a bell jar
It is [F]balancing upon his pedestal
He's trying [Dm]not to upset his conscious
Afraid it's so [G]fallen that no one will catch him
But I've [C]been there too and I swear to god
If I can [F]help you, please, you gotta tell me how
I know you've [Dm]been away and it can break you down
And I [G]don't want you gone
[F]All the cracks [G]you see can be [Am]repaired
And if you [F]start to [C]fall, we will be [G]there
Don't [C]drown yourself in all your old regrets
'Cause all the [F]heaviness will steal away your breath
Step [Dm]out of that life
It's nowhere [G]near your time
And don't for[C]get you called it all bullshit
It still [F]is and if you stop giving into it
You will [Dm]walk away the fr[G]eest man
[C]Shake your head
[F]Loosen your grip
[Dm]Raise up your fist
[G]You are the freest man
[C]Open your mouth
[F]Scream it out loud
[Dm]Forget all your doubt
[G]You are the freest man
C, F, Dm, G
