From "Almost Killed Me"
"I always dream about a unified scene"
[A]Payne avenue lives up to its name some nights it's painful and strange.
[D]The whole city seemed sane in the day.
N.C.
But some nights it seems distressed and deranged.
[A]The east side is where we[F#m] met with those guys
that [C#m]said they'd get us high but that [D]changed.
Now they're [E]down in the basement.
They're ba[D]shing out his brains.
[A]Kids are getting cut up with the [E]motorcycle chains.
[A]St. Paul had it all when we called.
[D]They were maxing out on medicine.
[A]A shaved head. The blood on the bed.
[D]Those guys you'd recognize.
They had the s[E]ame tattoos as gideon.
[A]Strong stuff and she [F#m]had more than enough.
She was s[C#m]lumping over smiling and s[D]ailing off with cherubim.
the [E]cityscape skins are kinda [D]kicking it again.
[A]They're gonna show t[E]hese kids some discipline.
[F#m]Gideon's been living up in bay city, michigan.
N.C.
He's been workng at the michelin.
He got messed up with some messed up magicians.[E] [E] [E] [E] [F#m]
We got so highsome nights michigan looked just like a mitten
some nights we got fried.[E] [E] [E] [E] [F#m]
Strung out on residuals and visuals and laser shows.
Reach into the speaker and try to hold on to the quarter notes.

[A]I always dream about a unified scene.
[D]I always dream about a [E]unified scene.
[A]There's james king and king james and james dean.
[D]At a table in the corner of my [E]unified scene.
[A]They want a double order of love and respect.
[D]They said they just got back from up in [E]hostile, massachussetts.
[A]Girl I've seen your friend,she looks nothing like jada pinkett.
[D]I think you got something in those [E]cigarettes.
[F#m]Gideon was living up in [A]south minneapolis.
He was the [E]cowboy on the [B]crosstown bus.
[F#m]All the little phillies at the [A]yukon club are [E]gunning for the goldrush[B].
[F#m]We got tangled in electrical [A]fences.
[E]We got wrapped up in the indian[B] fringes.
[F#m]All the little phillies at the [A]yukon club are [E]gunning for the goldrush.
[B]They just can't get enough.

That's about 2/3 of the end solo. Quite frankly it's very difficult and tedious to tab.
may come back to it on a rainy day, but it's fairly easy to improve.
