                There are four picking patterns used throughout the song. One for each of
 >the Am, Em and C chords used, with a change of pattern on the Am in the
 >second and subsequent verses (although the original pattern is still used
 >for the choruses and outro). Its hard to tell what the fingerpicked
 >guitar does when the chords change  in the outro, as there is another
 >guitar over the top, playing some similar ideas up an octave (I might get
 >round to transcribing these one day!)
 >
 >Here is the chord structure for the song:
 >Note that the complete picking pattern takes up two bars.

Am 
Rows of houses, all bearing down on me
 I can feel their blue hands touching me
 Em
 All these things into position, 
 All these things we'll one day swallow whole
 Am (4 bars)
     C    Em  Am
 And fade out again
    C    E*m  Am
 And fade out again
     C   Em     Am 
Ohhhhhh Ohhhhh Ohhhhh
     C   Em
 Ohhhhhh Ohhhhh 

*First chorus ends here.
 Third chorus as above, but with a double length "Ohhhhh" section.
