Present Tense
From: Peter Trahms <ctrahms@u.washington.edu>

Drop D tuning: DADGBe

The verse is variations of this (shown here is the first time through):

--5------------5-------------5----------3-2-0---0----
----3-3-3-3-3----3---3-------------------------------
----------------------------------------------2---2-2
0-------------------------------<5>------------------
-------------3-----3---3-3-2--------2-0--------------
-----------------------------------------------------


Chorus:

D         G   F     G   D       G     F     G D G F G D G
-------------------------------------------             ---
-------------------------------------------             ---
-------------------------------------------  etc.       ---
0--0----X-5-5^3-3-X-5-5^0-0-0-X-5-5-5^3-3-3             X-5
0--0----X-5-5^3-3-X-5-5^0-0-0-X-5-5-5^3-3-3             X-5
12-12\0-X-5-5^3-3-X-5-5^0-0-0-X-5-5-5^3-3-3             X-5

The first time through, Mike lets it end at the G, the second time (not 
shown) a D.

Then the bridge goes like this, (with variations on the picking 
pattern):

Bb                            A                         G
---------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
7-----7-----7-----7-------7-----7-----7-----7--
--5-5---5-5---5-5---5-5-5---5-5---5-5---5-5----
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------

Then:

Bb                      A                       G

---------------------------------------------------------------------
11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8

8--8--8--8--8--8--8--8--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5

5-5-5-5-5------- then this      7-

15-13----15-13----15-13--- etc.  ----12-12----12-12----12-12-

Verse 1: (main riff)

Do you see the way that tree bends
 
does it inspire,

leaning out to catch the suns rays

a lesson to be applied

are you getting something out of this

all encompassing trip


Chorus: (chorus riff)


You can't spend your time alone,

redigesting past regrets.....Oh

You can't come to terms  and realise

your the only one who cannot forgive yourself

Makes much more sense,

to live in the present tense


2nd verse: (main riff)


Have you ideas on how this life ends,

Checked your ends and studied the line,

Have you ever belived that the road ahead

sands off into the light

seems that needlessly it getting harder

to find an approach and no where to live

are we getting something out of this

all encompassing trip


Chorus (chorus riff)


Bridge:

(one beat = quarter bar?)

16 x D, 16 x C, 32 x G
16 x D, 16 x C, 32 x G
8 x D, 8 x C, 16 x G
