After this the vocals come in, and are played over
that bass section up there, with these lyrics:

Speed leaving without warning
I need some place to sleep tonight
blowing in the rocking of the pine



After this is the chorus, and I have some guitar chords over
the lyrics of them (actually, powerchords).
You'll have to listen for when the bass is playing with
the song, but pretty much the whole time (the section above).
Actually, there's a whole bunch of guitars in the background
with weird noises, but they're about impossible to tab out,
and it's not very important anyway, so please forgive me.

Guitar chords - Normal tuning

Speed leaving without warning
-A- 
                    
the sunlight is going
I will fall
Into the mountain

Sun shines in the rusty morning
-A- 

Skyine of the olympus mons

I think about it, sometimes
-A-

Sun shines in the rusty morning, once I had a good fly
-D-
