[Am]Behind a curtain of [Em]towering pines the [Am]sun's settling [Em]red
[F] [C] [E] [G] 
A[E] city hidden high in the hills comes out to honor the dead
[Am]Families somberly [Em]walk through the town they [Am]build alters and [Em]pray
[F] [C] [E] [G] 
Cl[E]ean the tombs and clutch rosaries and speak of better days
[Am]From the edge of the [E]island they [C]ferry back to the [F#m]shore
They [F]climb under their [C]covers and [G]pray a little [E]more
In this [Am]ancient city of [E]stone they [C]sigh and bow their [F#m]heads
The [F]living seem rather, well[E]...dead
[Am]The sun is down[Em] the earth shakes the [Am]wind doth how[Em]l
[Em]And I'm making [F]moves all across the [C]park, we're stirring [E]in the dark
[Am]The caskets squeak[Em], the trees wheeze, the [Am]crypts all creak[Em]
[Em]And toes sepulchered [F]for months in months in [C]dust
Are wiggling [E]off their , woah
[Am]Shed your shrouds[Em], slip your fingertips [Am]through the groun[Em]d
( Tab from: )
[Em]Get those catacombs [F]open I'm hoping you'll [C]join us
Everybody [E]come on out, yeah
[Am]What a lovely, [C]lovely night for a [F]drink and [C]a pa[G]rade
[Am] [C] [E] 
We[Am]'ll dance until the morning light, this town should be afraid
[Am] [G] [Am] [G] [Am]  
Candi[F]ed pumpki[Am]ns, sweet egg bread, we love rising from the dead
[Am] [G] [Am] [G] [Am]  
Carpals[F], tar[Am]sals, vertebrae, that's us clicking on parade
[Am]I move without any [E]muscles, my [G]skull's a cavernous [F#m]hall
[F]Tendons are made for [C]pulling my friend, I [G]don't need them at [E]all
[Am]Mescal in our [E]mandibles and [C]porridge on our [F#m]ribs
Their [F5]prospects are looking quite [E5]grim
[A5] [G#5] [A5] [B5] [F5] [E5] [F5]  
[G#5] [A5] [B5] [C5] [D5] [C5]  
Boa[A5]rd [G#5]the mariposas now, set sail for the quivering light ahead
[A5]We're [G#5]desc[A5]end[B5]ing [F5]on [E5]the [F5]town
The living we're scaring, nightmaring in fright

They've waited forever to bring us together we finally wake them up tonight!

Sweet riff:

Yock dehay!
