Tuning: Double Drop-D (DADGBd)

(UPDATE: I made some adjustments to this tab based on reading Titus's

This isn't 100% and it mainly only covers Patrick's guitar part, but there are
so few Titus Andronicus tabs out there I thought I'd give it a shot.

This song's in F, and Patrick plays it with a capo on 3, but I think the other guys just
play it in F without the capo. I'll write the chords relative, but for reference
if you want to play this open, "D" = F, "Bm" = Dm, "G" = Bb, "A" = C.

CHORDS:
D     : 000230
Bm    : 024430
G     : x55430
A     : x7765x or x0222x

CAPO ON 3
CHORDS RELATIVE

Intro riff:

Patrick mixes this with strumming, and it's inconsistent across recorded and live
versions as to which parts he strums and picks, but basically just strum around
the D chord and focus on picking out this melody:

D (with intro riff)
Why do you do the things you've done

and how dumb would you have to be
                                          Bm
to do them again like I know you're going to?

D (with intro riff)
If you're the poet you say you are

and beauty's in everything you see,
                                                      Bm
then how can love exist in a world run by people like you? 

        G                              D
Because when there's suffering, you're there.
     A                             D  A   D
    G                       D                Bm
The world screams out in agony and you don't care,
               G            D           A                    D
but should the sh*t hit the fan, I just pray you will not be spared. 

f**k you!

D

D
You took a heart with so much room for love 

and filled it with hatred and rage 
                                                          Bm
until there was nothing left but for it to shrivel up and die.

D
People will tell you that if you don't

love your neighbor, then you don't love God, 
                                                       Bm
but no god of mine would put light in such unrighteous eyes.

        G                         D
Now the way we hold each other so tight
           A                            D  A   D 
would look more like a noose if held up to the light
           G                    D            Bm
because we betray each other in dreams every night.
          G              D   A                 D 
Now let's never speak of it again, all right? 

D G D A (repeat to the end)
