Hast Thou Considered the Tetrapod

tabbed by Rosa (mostly)

Listen to the song for the rhythm. It sounds best if you let 
the strings ring open (x0000x) before each chord change.

Capo 1

Intro: A A A A | A D5 A D5 | A D5 A A

A                         D5
You are sleeping off your demons
A           D5
When I come home
A                        Esus4
Spittle bubbling on your lips
A          D5
Fine white foam

A                   D5
I am young and I am good
       A                       D5
It's a hot southern California day
A             Esus4
If I wake you up
A                     D5
There will be hell to pay

D5               A
And alone in my room
         D5                   A
I am the last of a lost civilization
D5                    A
And I vanish into the dark
A                 D5
And rise above my station
A             D5      D5
Rise above my station

A A A D5 | A D5 A D5 | A A (album)
A D5 A D5 | A D5 A A | (live)

But I do wake you up, and when I do
You blaze down the hall and you scream
I'm in my room with the headphones on
Deep in the dream chamber

And then I'm awake and I'm guarding my face
Hoping you don't break my stereo
Because it's the one thing that I couldn't live without
And so I think about that, and then I sorta black out

     D5                     A
Held under these smothering waves
        D5                      A
By your strong and thick-veined hand
D5               A
But one of these days
          Esus4             A     A
I'm gonna wriggle up on dry land
