                BAND: The Airborne Toxic Event



Probably the prettiest song by this band to date. Absolutely heartwrenching.

NOTE: this is based on one particular live version. It is “Live at Birmingham Academy,” 
in the UK on the 7th of November 2009. It was played during a set that is available for 
I have seen this song performed live, and it was played slightly differently, and most 
a capo (sometimes 3, sometimes 4...); sometimes he plays D G A, sometimes G C D. I guess we
won’t know the official version until the studio version comes out, but this version, the one
grab a copy of it. 

If you have a different version somehow and you really like THAT version and it sounds slightly
different, then try messing around with a capo, or if worst comes to worst replace the chords 
below with the following: D -> G, G -> C, A -> D, and move the capo around again. 

LAST NOTE: The way I hear it (for this version; no capo, standard tuning), he (Mikel) 
avoids the top e string a lot, emphasizing instead the unchanging note D on the B string 
(3rd fret), like the tremolo. Sometimes he does play the e string, and sometimes, instead of
the D chord he plays Bm. It’s too hard to tell, and at this point it’s too irregular, to put 
the Bm’s in this tab, so I’m just going to put D’s in and if you want to throw in the occasional 
Bm go for it. 




Song starts off with Anna’s (viola) tremolo on note D (8th fret, high e-string). Eventually, when 
Steven (guitar) begins mimicking, he tremolo’s in a similar pattern. It’s pretty much (top e 
string): 8 8 8 10 (in same time as chords below, trem each). Sometimes they go up to 12, and one 
or both of them might add a second note via the B string.



Intro: (after lead-in trem from Anna)
D G D A  x4

D
How can I explain to you 
G
The picture of this avenue?
D
The rain falls on the street outside
A
My window on this Thursday afternoon
D
I sit alone inside 
G
These sinful walls I've lived inside
D
So many lies I’ve lived and died
A
None so much as the one I’ve lived with you.
D                    G
I see you on the highway 
(G)
A thousand miles away
D
Rain falls through your hair and cheeks
A
Tears and mascara streaks
D
Your face reflected in the glass
G
Lines in the pavement go past 
D
Just like the lines around your eyes
A
That held the weight of all these sad goodbyes


Interlude:
D G D A    x 4
(I think the last time is Bm G D A...)

D
Everybody that I know 
G
Tell me just to let it go
D
You run from everything, they say
A
Hurt the ones you love blindly
D
But here I sit and picture you 
G
With fingers worn, your shirt torn through
D
Your heart's so big and broke in two
A
Your mind drifting through all you knew
D
Afraid to love, afraid to lose
G
Afraid to start, afraid to choose
D
Afraid to live, afraid to die
A
Afraid to let you days slip by
D
Afraid you’ll change or stay the same
G
Afraid we’ll lose ourselves again
D                        A
Afraid of the truth that love 

                        D
Could cause you so much pain

(D) G D

  A
I know
           D
I felt it, too
   G       D
I know, I know
A
      Darlin, I wish it wasn't true.


(end on D)
