SONG  - A Spindle, A Darkness, A Fever, And A Necklace

Tablature by Matt  - 03/19/01

Am7    - X02010
Am7/F# - 202010
G      - 320033
C      - X30210
F#     - 224432
B7     - X21201
E      - 022100
D7     - XX0212
D7sus4 - XX0213

    Am7       Am7/F#
You turn on a spindle
You are so much looser now
But you're not explaining how
    F#          B7    E
You gained such new repose

            Am7           Am7/F#
I touch the clasp of your locket
With its picture held
Some secret you wouldn't tell
    F#     B7         E
But let it choke your neck

        Am7     Am7/F#
So we imagine a darkness
Where all shapes divide
Solids changing into light
       F#       B7      E
With a burst of heat so bright

Well fine

Am7       Am7/F#    G        C
Don't you do what I want you to
      Am7     Am7/F#             G          C
Yeah, don't degrade yourself the way that I do
       Am7       Am7/F#              G           C
'Cause you don't depend upon all the shit that I use
   Am   C  D7    D7sus4 G
To make my moods immmmmmprove

        Am7     Am7/F#
And near a sea of pianos
There were waves of chords
That crashed against the shore
       F#       B7        E
In one huge and pointless roar

               Am7            Am7/F#
And there were girls bringing water
Like a dream they came
To cool the fever of my brain
    F#        B7      E
And soothe my burning throat

         Am7       Am7/F#
And they made me a necklace
Hanging beads of sweat
On a string of my regrets
    F#        B7        E
And placed it 'round my neck

And they were singing

Am7       Am7/F#         G      C
Don't you do what you've wanted to
      Am7      Am7/F#                   G       C
Yeah, don't destroy yourself like those cowards do
    Am7                 Am7/F#                       G       C
And maybe the sun keeps coming up 'cause it's gotten used to you
         Am C     D7   D7sus4 G
And your constant need forrrr proof

SONG  - A Scale, A Mirror And Those Indifferent Clocks

Tablature by B.E. as interpreted by the pantieraider

   C  Em  Am   F  G

Here is a scale, weigh it out and you will find easily
More than sufficient doubt that these colors you see
Were picked in advance by some careful hand 
        F                   G
With an absolute concept of beauty 
They are smeared and these blurs come in random order
To color the eyes of your former lovers
          Am                                              F
Hers were green like July except when she cried
          F G
They were red

Now I know a disease that these doctors can't treat
You contract it the day you accept all you see
Is a mirror and a mirror is all it can be
    F                           G
A reflection of something we're missing
And language just happened, it was never planned
And it's inadequate to describe where I am
In the room of my house where the light has never been
F                       G 
Waiting for this day to end

          F                         G                
And these clocks keep unwinding and completely ignore
Em                 Am           
Everything that we hate or adore
         F                     G
Once the page of a calendar is turned it's no more
   Em                        Am
So tell me then, what was it for?
   F        G           C
Oh tell me, what was it for?

- The Calendar Hung Itself

Tablature by B.E. - frantic latin rock interpreted by pantie

 F#m C#  Bm   E   A   D

Does he kiss your eyelids in the morning
when you start to raise your head?
And does he sing to you incessantly
from the place between your bed and wall?
Does he walk around all day at school
with his feet inside your shoes?
Looking down every few steps
to pretend he walks with you?
Does he know that place below your neck
that is your favorite to be touched?
And does he cry through broken sentences
like "I love you far too much"?

Bm          E          A            D
Does he lay awake listening to your breath?  
Bm           E             A        D
Worried that you smoke too many cigarettes?
      E                 F#m
Is he coughing now on a bathroom floor?  
          E                         F#m
For every speck of tile there are a thousand more
That you won't ever see
         A    E      D         E      F#m C# F# C#
But must hold inside yourself eternally

I drug your ghost across the country
and we plotted out my death
In every city, memories would whisper
"Here is where you rest"
I was determined in Chicago
But I dug my teeth into my knees
And I settled for a telephone
Sang into your machine
"You are my sunshine,
 My only sunshine.
 You are my sunshine
 My only sunshine"

Bm E A D
Bm E A D
E F#
E F#

I kissed a girl with a broken jaw
That her father gave to her
She had eyes bright enough to burn me
They reminded me of yours
And in a story told she was a little girl
In a red-rouge, sun-bruised field
And there were rows of ripe tomatoes
Where a secret was concealed
And it rose like thunder
Clapped under our hands
And it stretched for centuries
To a diary entry's end where I wrote
"You make me happy (WHAT?)
 When the skies are gray
 You make me happy (WHAT?)
 When skies are gray and gray and gray"

          Bm              E            A        D
Well the clock's heart it hangs inside its open chest
           Bm                    E        A         D
With hands stretched towards the calendar hanging itself
      E                       F#m
But I will not weep for those dying days
            E                            F#m
For all the ones who've left there are a few that stayed
         E                 A         E        D
And they found me here and pulled me from the grass
      E       F#m E F#m E...
Where I was laid

F       C              G             Am
Now and again it seems worse than it is
    F          C       G        
But mostly the view is accurate.  
             F             C          G            Am
You see your breath in the air as you climb up the stairs 
        F          C         G
to that coffin you call your apartment.  

        Am           E    
And you sink in your chair
          C              G
Brush the snow from your hair
    C         G    F      
And drink the cold away  

        Am         E
You are not really sure
            C          F
What you're doing this for
             C            G           F
But you need something to fill up the days
  Am       E
A few more hours

C G Am  
C G Am

           F           C               G        Am
There is a dream in my brain that just won't go away  
          F                    C          G 
It's been stuck there since it came a few nights ago 
        F             C             G            Am
And I'm standing on a bridge in the town where I lived 
     F           C          G
As a kid with my mom and my brothers

             Am         E
And then the bridge disappears
        C           G  
And I'm standing on air
     C       G       F
With nothing holding me

      Am          E     
And I hang like a star
        C           G
Fucking glow in the dark
              C        G       F 
For all those starving eyes to see
         Am         E
Like the ones we've wished on

    C          G      
But now I'm confused  
        Am           F
Is this death really you?
C            G               Am    
And do these dreams have any meaning?  

                       C           G   
No, no, I think it is more like a ghost
            Am           F
That's been following us both
C            G                    Am
   Something vague that we're not seein
F         C           D   
Something more like a feeling

F# A E F#

    F#         A
You follow the footsteps
       E              A
Echoes leading down a hall
     F#                  A
To a room, there's music playing
     E                 A
Tiny bells with moving parts

         F#                  A
Here the shadows make things ugly
   E                    A
An effect quite undesirable
    F#              A
The bold and yellow daylight
           E              A
Grows like ivy across the wall

    D       E          A
And bounces off of the painted porcelain
D    E       A
Tiny dancing doll
    D    E            A
Her body spins as she pirouettes again
    D           E        F#    A  E  A
The world suddenly seems small

      F#               A
On an off-white subtle morning
    E                              A
You stretch your legs in the front seat
    F#              A
The road has made a vacuum
          E              A
Where our voices used to be
        F#                    A
And you lay your head onto my shoulder
          E          A
Pour like water over me

        D      E           A
So if I just exist for the next ten minutes of this
D          E        A
Drive that would be fine
    D       E          A
And all the trees that line this curb would be
  D       E     F#  A  E  A
Rejoicing and alive

     D       E        A
Soon all the joy that pours from everything makes
D         E       A
Fountains of your eyes
            D       E    A
Because you finally understand the movement of a
D           E       F#  A  E  A
Hand waving you goodbye

The fragile keep secrets gathered in pockets
And they will sell them for nothing, a cheap watch or locket
     E                      C#m
That kind of gold washes off

And the sad act like lepers, they stick to the shadows
They long to ring bells of warning to tell of their coming
            E                        C#m
So that the pure can shut their doors

And the angry are animals, senseless and savage
They act without order in logical lapses
     E                            C#m
They stain their mouths with blood

   F#m                                C#m
So take my hand, this barren land is alive tonight
        F#m                               C#m
Oh, the corn has grown stalks that form a wall to hide
         F#m                                    C#m
The wind carries sounds that I can't see from beyond that line
         B      A        G#
Then the stalks begin to sway
    C#            B A G#
Oh, stay with me, Arienette
Until the wolves are away
    A G#  C#m  A G#

Well the wicked are vultures, they bake in the canyons
They circle in sunlight and wait for their victims
     E                     C#m
To collapse and call to them

And the desperate are water, they'll run down forever
As they soak into silence and end up together
     E                                  C#m
In a dark and distant, dark and distant place

         F#m                             C#m
So don't leave me here with only mirrors watching me
     F#m                             C#m
This house, it holds nothing but the memories
        F#m                        C#m
And the moon, it leaves silver but never sleep
             B      A        G#     
And then the silver turns to gray
   C#            B A G#
So stay with me, Arienette
Until the wolves are away

     C                      G
Tomorrow when I wake up I'm finding my brother
    Dm                      G
And making him take me back down to the water
     C                           G
That lake where we sailed and we laughed with our father
  Am                     Am                    G
I will not desert him, I will not desert him

          Dm        G          C         Am
No matter how I may wish for a coffin so clean
         Dm         G               C           Am
Or these trees to undress all their leaves onto me
         Dm          G             C         Am
I put my face in the dirt and then finally I see
    C                 G       C
The sky that has been avoiding me

  C                              G
I started this letter, I'm gonna send it to Ruba
           Dm                         G
It will be blessed by her eyes on the gulf coast of Florida
         C                        G
With her feet in the sand and one hand on her swimsuit
         Am                      G
She will recite the prayer of my pen

        C                     G
Saying, time take us forward, relief from this longing
         Dm                    G
They can land that plane on my heart. I don't care
     C                     G
Just give me November, the warmth of a whisper
       Am                      G
In the freezing darkness of my room

              Dm           G          C          Am
But no matter what I would do in an attempt to replace
          Dm           G              C          Am
All these pills that I take trying to balance my brain
         Dm      G              C           Am
Seen the curious girl with that look on her face
   C                             G           C
So surprised she stares out from her display case

The phone slips from a loose grip

Words were missed, then some apology

I didn't want to tell you this

The laughter pours from under doors in this house

I don't understand that sound no more
      Dmaj7             A    Bm
Seems artificial like a TV set

Well Haligh Haligh Haligh Haligh
This weight, it must be satisfied
You offer only one reply
You know not what you do
But you tear and tear your hair from roots
From that same head you have twice removed
Now a lock of hair you said would prove
Our love would never die, well hahaha


F#m        Dmaj7
I remember everything
    A                 Bm
The words we spoke on freezing South Street
    F#m                Dmaj7        A             Bm
And all those mornings watching you get ready for school

    F#m                Dmaj7
You combed your hair inside that mirror
            A                Bm
The one you painted blue and glued with jewelry tears
F#m                   Dmaj7                      A                Bm
Something about those bright colors would always make you feel better

F#m                   Dmaj7
But now we speak with ruined tongues
        A                   Bm
And the words we say aren't meant for anyone
F#m                 Dmaj7         A              Bm       
It's just a mumbled sentence to a passing acquaintance but there was once you

F#m                  Dmaj7
You said you hate my suffering
        A              Bm
And you understood and you'd take care of me
F#m                Dmaj7          A                   Bm
You'd would always be there, well where are you now?

Haligh, Haligh, Haligh, Haligh
The plans were never finalized
But left to hang like yarn and twine
Dangling before my eyes

As you tear and tear your hair from roots
From that same head that you have twice removed
Now a lock of hair you said would prove
Our love would never die

And I sing and sing of awful things
The pleasure that my sadness brings
And my fingers press onto the strings
Yet another clumsy chord

Haligh, Haligh, an awful lie
This weight will now be satisfied
I'm gonna give you only one reply
I know not who I am

But I talk in the mirror
To the stranger that appears
Our conversations are circles
Always one sided
Nothing is clear

Except we keep coming back
To this meaning that I lack
He says the choices were given
Now you must live them
Or just not live

But do you want that?

SONG  - The Center Of The World

G                    Bm                          Am
At the center of the world there's a statue of a girl
                       C           D               G
She is standing near a well with a bucket bare and dry
                             Bm                          Am
I went and looked her in the eyes and she turned me into sand
                           C                  D           G
This clumsy form that I despise, it scattered easy in her hand

                       Bm                          Am
It came to rest upon a beach with a million others there
                          C                          D             G
We sat and waited for the sea to stretch out so that we could disappear
                        Bm                          Am
Into the endlessness of blue into the horror of the truth
                             C                  D                Em
See, we are far less than we knew, yeah, we are far less than we knew

Em                        C
But we knew what we could taste
Girls found honey to drench our hands
The men cut marble to mark our graves

B                              G
Said we'll need something to remind us of
All the sweetness that has passed through us
The priests dressed children for a choir
But found no joy in what was sung
B   C       D   D G
The funeral had begun

G                    Bm                              Am
In the middle of the day when you drive home to your place
                             C                 D                       G
From that job that makes you sleep back to the thoughts that keep you awake
                             Bm                           Am                        
Long after night has come to claim any light that still remains
                     C              D              G
In the corner of the frame that you put around her face

Two pills just weren't enough 
The alarm clock's going off but you're not waking up
          C                                       D                             
This isnt happening happening happening happening happening
It is

SONG  - Sunrise, Sunset

Tablature by Matt  - 03/19/01

Am  - XX7555
G#? - XX6555
E   - 022100

Am       G#?
Sunrise, sunset
Am       G#?
Sunrise, sunset
Am     G#?     Am   G#?
Swiftly go the days

Am       G#?
Sunrise, sunset
    Am                G#?
You wake up, then you undress
   Am  G#?       Am   G#?
It always is the same

  Am              G#?
A sunrise and the sun sets
        Am              G#?
You are lying while you confess
     Am   G#?    Am    G#?
Keep trying to explain

  Am              G#?
A sunrise and the sun sets
    Am                G#?
You realize, then you forget
                   Am    G#?   Am   G#?
What you have been trying to retain

But everybody knows
It's all about the things
     E           E            Am   G#? Am G#?
That get stuck inside of your head

Like the songs your roommate sings
Or a vision of her body
       E                     Am
As she stretches out on your bed

        G#?        Am           G#?
And she raised her hands in the air
           Am           G#?           Am            G#?
Asked you, when was the last time you looked in the mirror?
                Am       G#? Am G#?
'Cause you have changed
             Am  G#? Am G#?
Yeah, you've changed

Am           G#?
Sunrise, the sun sets
        Am                   G#?
You are hopeful and then you regret
    Am   G#?     Am     G#?
The circle never breaks

       Am          G#?
With a sunrise and sunset
          Am                 G#?
There's a change of heart or address
         Am    G#?      Am     G#?
Is there nothing that remains?

      Am           G#?
For a sunrise or a sunset
       Am              G#?
You're manic or you're depressed
         Am  G#?    Am   G#?
Will you ever feel okay?

      Am           G#?
For a sunrise or a sunset
     Am          G#?
Your lover is an actress
        Am   G#?           Am    G#?
Did you really think she'd stay?

      Am           G#?
For a sunrise or a sunset
              Am            G#?
You're either coming or you just left
           Am   G#?      Am  G#?
But you're always on the way

          Am           G#?
Towards a sunrise or a sunset
  Am            G#?
A scribble or a sonnet
         Am              G#?
They are really just the same

       Am           G#?
To the sunrise or a sunset
    Am             G#?
The master and his servant
      Am   G#?   Am      G#?
Have exactly the same fate

       Am            G#?
It's a sunrise and a sunset
       Am          G#?
From a cradle to a casket
         Am   G#?    Am   G#?
There is no way to escape

    Am              G#?
The sunrise and the sunset
          Am             G#?
Hold your sadness like a puppet
     Am    G#?      Am   G#?
Keep putting on the play

But everything you do
Is leading to the point
      E                           Am G#? Am G#?
Where you just won't know what to do

And at that moment you may laugh
But there is someone there
                     E           Am
Who will be laughing louder than you

So it's true
    Am          G#?
The trick is complete
         Am        G#?                Am          G#?
You've become everything you said you never would be
         Am   G#? Am G#?
You're a fool
         Am   G#? Am G#?
You're a fool

Am       G#?
Sunrise, sunset
Am       G#?
Sunrise, sunset
    Am              G#?   Am G#?
The sunrise and the sun sets

Am       G#?
Sunrise, sunset
Am           G#?
Sunrise, the sun sets
    Am           G#?     Am G#?
The sunrise, the sun sets

Am       G#?
Sunrise, sunset
   Am            G#?
Go home to your apartment
        Am              G#?       Am G#?
Put the cassette in the tape deck
    Am     G#?     Am   G#? Am G#? Am G#?
And let that fever play

Am       G#?
Sunrise, sunset
      Am      G#?
Where are you Arienette?

Am G#?
Am G#?
Am G#?
Am G#?

      Am      G#?
Where are you Arienette?

SONG  - An Attempt To Tip The Scales

Tablature by Clark Vogeler  - 03/19/01

intro: D F#m G A

        D                F#m         G            A
Did you expect it all to stop at the wave of your hand?
         D                 F#m          G           A
Like the sun is just gonna drop if it's night you demand?
             D                F#m        G              A
Well, in the dark we are just air so the house might dissolve
           D                 F#m             G            A
Once we're gone, who's gonna care if we were ever here at all?

      G                                A              F#m
Well, summer's gonna come, it's gonna cloud our eyes again
                              G                    A
No need to focus when there's nothing that's worth seeing

            D          F#m           G                A
So we trade liquor for blood in an attempt to tip the scales
            D             F#m           G         A
I think you lost what you loved in that mess of details
                 F#m                     G
They seemed so important at the time but now you can't even recall
F#m                                              G             A
Any of the names, faces, or lines, it's more the feeling of it all

      G                              A
Well, winter's gonna end, it's gonna clean these veins again
F#m                      G                 A
So close to dying that I finally can start living

D F#m G A (repeat)  end on F#m

SONG  - A Song To Pass The Time

E   - 022100
F#m - XX4222
G#m - xx6444
A   - X02220
B   - X24442

Start with fingerpicking E

           E                        F#m
There is a middle-aged woman, she's dragging her feet
            G#m                     F#m
She carries baskets of clothes to a laundromat
          E                     F#m
While the Mexican children kick rocks into the street
         G#m                         F#m
And they laugh in a language I don't understand
           A                     E
But I love them... why do I love them?

       E                         F#m
So the neighborhood's dimming, I smoke on the porch
          G#m                            F#m
Watch the people as they pass enclosed inside their cars
             E                   F#m
And on their faces just anger or disappointment
        G#m                                 F#m
I start wishing there was something I could offer them
  A                                 E
A consolation... what could I offer them?

             E                            F#m
And they are sad in their suburbs, robots water the lawn
    G#m                               F#m
And everything they touch gets dusted spotless
            E                                    F#m
And so they start to believe they've not touched anything at all
        G#m                       F#m
And the cars in the driveway only multiply

         E                                     F#m
They are lost in their houses, I've heard them sing in the shower
       G#m                             F#m
Making speeches to their sister on the telephone
                E                                  F#m
Saying you come home, you come here, don't stay so far away from me
     G#m                              F#m
This weather has me wanting love more tangible
                A                    E
Something I can hold... it's getting cold

      F#m         E          B            A
I say hold up our fists to a flame in the sky
   F#m           E                 B           A
To block out the light that's reaching for our eyes
                             E        A             E       
'Cause it... 'cause it would blind us, yeah it will blind us

          E                        F#m
Well I've locked my actions in the grooves of routine
         G#m                   F#m
So I may never be free of this apathy
      E                        F#m
But I wait for a letter that's coming to me
             G#m                         F#m
She sends me pictures of the ocean in an envelope

So there still is hope, yes, I can be healed
There is someone looking for what I've concealed
In my secret drawer, in my pockets deep
You will find the reasons that I can't sleep
                        A                             E     
And you will still want me... but will you still want me?
A                   E
Will you still want me?

            F#m          E             B           A
Well, I say come for the week, you can sleep in my bed
    F#m             E           B                A
And pass through my life like a dream through my head
                      E    A             E
It will... it will be easy, I'll make it easy

          E                        F#m
But all I have for the moment is a song to pass the time
  G#m                    F#m
A melody to keep me from worrying
     E                             F#m
Some simple progression to keep my fingers busy
    G#m                         F#m
And words that are sure to come back to me
                    A                          E
And they'll be laughing... and they'll be laughing
A          E
My mediocrity
A          E
My mediocrity

A E A E...
