CM7            Dm
  Drawn to the dark
  F                         Am
  Covered by the blood when possible
Dm            Am        E7
  Call to the corners
Am
  To any open crucible
  
CM7       Dm7  Dm
  Easy to reach
  F                    Am
  Bearing every mark unmissably
  Dm                      Am              E7               Am
  Wanna leave behind some token of what I carried with me
  
F Em            Dm
  Search in the storm drains
F       Em          G
  Sleep in the underpasses
F Em           Dm
  Try hard to look hard
    F       Em               G
  Behind my blackout sunglasses
  
             C            F
  But I have high unicorn tolerance
         C            F
  I have high unicorn tolerance

CM7              Dm7       Dm
  Swim with real sharks
  F                          Am
  Those who never speak when spoken to
  Dm                    Am         E7
  Hard limits fade into memory
       Am
  Once broken through
  
CM7           Dm7          Dm 
  Scaling the well
  F                  Am
  Every single day instinctively
Dm           Am
  Feel shame real shame
              E7                       Am
  For what my friends must think of me
  
F Em              Dm
  Dig through the graveyard
F         Em               G
  Rub the bones against my face
F              Em              Dm
  It gets real nice around the graveyard
F               Em              G
  Once you've acquired the taste
  
Em             F                    CM7
  And when the clouds do clear away
Eb      G                   CM7
  Get a momentary chance to see
Em    Dm                        C
  The thing I've been trying to beat to death
F Em  Dm   Em                           F Em Dm Em
  The soft creature that I used to be
F Em  Dm     Em                         F Em Dm Em
  The better animal I used to be
  
C                Dm7      Dm
  Draw where I'm drawn
F                         Am
  Seldom wonder why, just follow you
  Dm                        Am
  Never blame the rags that swallowed me
          E7                         Am
  For the place the river took me to
  
F                  Dm
  Long life to the spiders
F      Em             G
  Safe travels to the crows
F             Dm
  Love to the ghosts
F               Em           G
  Who taught me everything I know
  
             C            F
  But I have high unicorn tolerance
         C            F
  I have high unicorn tolerance
         C            F
  I have high unicorn tolerance
         C            F
  I have high unicorn tolerance

[notes: there is an outro, but i'm not sure how playable it is on just guitar
again, if you can work it out, feel free to add it

similarly, this isn't gonna capture the recording exactly;
there just aren't enough strings to capture all the bass and flute notes
i checked this against the recording and a live show and it matches to my ear,
though your mileage may vary

if you're having trouble with the Dm7=>Dm switch, you can just play a Dm
Eb there's really no good way around; just barre it and hope

there are probably a lot of places where the CM7 should be a C and vice versa;
they don't sound too different though so don't worry hugely

in the liveshow i watched, john played the pre-chorus all barred;
again, doesn't make a huge difference, but try it if you'd like
i would recommend emphasizing the lower strings during the verses
but that's more personal preference than accuracy]
