Age Of Reptiles - Showbread
So how the chords on the clean guitar are
setup below. for the chorus just play it
power chords with overdrive
Bm x24430
G 355400
E 022100
F# 244300
[Bm]I am made of parts that freeze and ligaments that atrophy
[G]Though they look they'll never see
They don't know something's wrong with me
And [E]just as well, I'll never tell what's underneath the scales
I've [F#]worn to thin to honor you, my every effort fails
[Bm]Bury me with Israel and cover up my tracks
Leave [G]not a trace of what I was, I'm never coming back
And [E]if you're mercy falls upon he whose blood is cold
Un[F#]earth me with your hands of love and never break your hold
The [B5]world is full of ones like me, who [G5]need to see the truth
But the [E5]truth is never truth indeed, the [F#5]truth is only you
[Bm]Jesus bless the crocodiles, forgive the cobras and all the snakes
[G]Open up your arms to carry all of our mistakes
[E]Suck the venom from every bite and vomit every drop
[F#]Some of us may bite your hand but some of us will not
And [Bm]every knee will bow before you, each forked tongue confess
My [G]selfishness will rot in me and I will seek your rest
[E]Still some lizards flee from you, ashamed of all they've been
So [F#]Jesus take myself from me, never bring it back again
( Tab from: )
The [B5]world is full of ones like me, who [G5]need to see the truth
But the [E5]truth is never truth indeed, the [F#5]truth is only you
The [B5]world will soon become extinct, the [G5]age will pass away
And [E5]all will know that you are God, [F#5]hallowed be your name

Jes[E]us bless the crocodiles, forgive[F#] the cobras and all the snakes
Open up your arms to carry all of our mistakes
Forgive the basilisk, forgive the moccasins and adders too
Have mercy on each alligator that never lived for you
I myself hatched from an egg, no white light from above
Just another ancient serpent that never earned your love
But still you find me underneath the rocks and in the ground
I cowered there just short of air and never made a sound
It's true that I'm in love with you, and even in my shame
You wipe away the imperfections and take away the pain
You wrap your loving arms around this wretched thing called me
Your love is all I'll ever need, your love has set me free
play the chorus during "The truth is only you (etc)",
but intersperse the passing notes of the bridge
when the heavy overdriven guitar isn't playing
theres already a good tab for Age Of Insects(Outro) so refer to that one
