                           G
We need a myth
                      Bm
We need an amethyst bridge
                        Em
We need a high hanging cliff
Jump, fall and lift
        C
We can make it

But we need a myth
We need a path through the mist
Like in our beds, we were just kids
Like what was said by our parents

  Abm
A myth
                            C#
'Cause what we're after is just this
A myth
'Cause what we're after is just this

           A
We need a myth
                         C#m
I feel my heart's like a fist
                                  F#m
Words spilling out of the blessed lips
                    D
Of any prophet or goddess

I need a myth
Brought back to life by a kiss
Scr*pe away grey cement
Show me the world as it was again

As it was in a myth
A red ribbon to reconnect
The lady's head to her neck
And to forget that her throat was ever slit
                            Bb
'Cause what we're after is just this
        Eb
It's a myth
'Cause what we're after is just this

        Abm                 F#                E
And I'm sick of all these picture books that try
To steal some old reflections for their light
But desperate measures point to desperate times
           F#
And that's why
We need a myth

B Ebm Abm E
(Instrumental)

            B
We're cut adrift
                Ebm
We need a mass uplift
                             Abm
The world is trembling and weeping
                        E
Just at the point of believing

In a myth
The sun that shines on my head
The moon that lights me to bed
Were two identical twins

Inside of a myth
I heard the voice of a friend
On Lethe's banks, wading in
And he said, "Before I forget...”

           C#
We need a myth
                 Fm
As we lean in to kiss
                             Bbm
To get two nails through the wrist
                   F#
To get covered in blood
And to get covered in spit

          C#
And to forgive
And if all we're taught is a trick
Why would this feeling persist?
And with the truth closing in
I must insist
We need a myth

--------------------------
As the song progresses, they use barre chords further up the neck; for example, even 
though the last set of chords has an F-minor in it, you'll want to do it at the 7th fret 
instead of the 1st if you want to be as accurate as possible.
