Intro: D-Db-Am (2x)

Verse 1:

  Am               D         Db             Am
Falling down the stairs     Climb into the sea

  Am                  D      Db               Am
The world is on its hands   Then it's on its feet

 Am              D       Db                 Am
Crush the silent man    Who cares where he goes?

  Am                 D       Db                           Am
Stand high upon his back    Like the ground beneath your toes


   G                       D      Am
The breeze is too much for me anymore.

      Am            G             D
I've seen this in people who are weak.

           G                D                           Am
And if I push the blade in deep will it break inside of me?

In me, in me, in me   

Verse 2:
Reaching for a star  With my eyes dead on the floor
Racing all the time  My soul can't take much more
Touch the silent man   Who made himself so low

Repeat Chorus

Em            G5           Em
	Will I spit on Him again?

Em     G5          Em
	Turn myself away?
Em     G5                Em
	What more will it take?

Em-G5-A5 (moderate progression)

( a/b means slide from a to b)
( h means hammer on/off, but in this case, do it kind of slow.)


(Play this twice.  You may have to listen to this part of the song a time
or two to get the rythem just right.)

Verse 3:
Falling down the stairs  Climb into the sea
The world is on its hands  Then it's on its feet
Touch the silent man  Who made himself so low
Make yourself as small  Just He and I and all

(Repeat the D-Db-Am progression until the end.)

Play it slow and practice with the CD to get the rythem right.  Good luck!
