                   BUILDING THE NATIONS - Oh, Sleeper
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


So while I was trying to figure out the last riff in
"Vices like Vipers", I got bored and tabbed this song
out.  It's pretty easy but lots of fun to play.

Firstly, lead and rhythm guitar don't really matter here, so
all the important stuff is "guitar 1" and the rest is "guitar 2".

ALSO, a LOT of these octaves have slight bends in them
so instead of putting little "b"s next to all of them I'm
gonna let you figure out the extent of the bends and stuff.
A good technique for the octave bends is to bend the "g" (or normally the A) string 
keeping the "f" (or normally the g) string unbent.  It gives a nice healthy sounding 
to everything.

Tuning: Drop C

"I've found the pit to find yourself..."

BRIDGE

"Oh, I found your prints on a fleshy pulse.
You made the waves to meet my foot
And all the siren songs that ring on and on and on.
I watched your vipers bring down the bishop and
bait the chains to leave me hit.
Well I've brought all the archers, we lit all
the pyres, we've come to..."
