‣ The Mars Volta
[Intro]
Em Bm G
 
[Verse 1]
Em
If I had to find some stray hint to describe it
Bm     G
Absent bouts of escape
Em
Turn his wreckage into one of beheaded prophets
Bm               G
And let them all bow in refrain
Em                      Bm     G
This, this is how we survive, –ive
 
[Chorus]
Bm  D  Em                   Bm  D    Em
       If I have to find my way back home
                 Bm
In this floating deprivation
           D             Em
They could never deliver me
             C
She says I'm done
           B    G        Em
And bursts into wings of tourmaline, tourmaline
 
[Verse 2]
Em
If the catatonic walls close in on the hem again
Bm              G
Pull the tether down for me
Em
I’ve been hemorrhaging thе sins of these lessеr men
Bm        G
In cracks I didn't make
Em
Until the lights, they flicker out
Bm                 G
And a voice asks, "Are you safe in this cavern?"
Em
Deep in the fathom span
   Bm                    G
Of outstretched arms, of outstretched arms
 
[Chorus]
Bm  D  Em                   Bm  D    Em
       If I have to find my way back home
                 Bm
In this floating deprivation
           D             Em
They could never deliver me
             C
She says I'm done
           B    G        Em
And bursts into wings of tourmaline, tourmaline
 
[Bridge]
Em
Please come
            Am
Please come away with me
C                    B
We won’t conceal the death that caves you in
Em
Please come
            Am
Please come away with me
C                 B
Leaving the mountebank that did you in
Em          Am
    Hear me callin'
C                 B
If your heart, it seeks asylum
Em            Am
    You'll be alright
C                B
If your heart is not too sure
 
[Chorus]
Bm  D  Em                   Bm  D    Em
       If I have to find my way back home
                 Bm
In this floating deprivation
           D             Em
They could never deliver me
Bm  D  Em                   Bm  D    Em
       If I have to find my way back home
                 Bm
In this floating deprivation
           D             Em
They could never deliver me
             C
She says I'm done
           B    G        Em
And bursts into wings of tourmaline
