VERSE:
Em                                       G  F
You begin to talk, there's no one there.
    Em                                   G (w/ FILL)
Did you ever see so many empty spaces?
Em                                       G  F
I came across you on a rustic bend.
    Em                                   G (w/ FILL)
You used to be seen in important places.

PRE-CHORUS:
G                      Am
Where do I go when the light grows dim?
G                  Am
Down the road on a stick.
G                       Am
What will I do when the pen runs out?
C
I make a stop, the dogs they bark.
D
Away and away and away and away.

CHORUS (w/ INTRO RIFF)
Am            G
Empty Shell.
Am                                          G
I put another log on the fire, some fuel for you.
Am            G
Empty Shell.
Am                                       G
I put another log on the fire, some fuel for you.

VERSE:
The battle is done you've lost and won.
And now you look so pale and eerie.
Counting the hills till sunset comes.
Lookin' out on to serve your name.

PRE-CHORUS:
I see the slopes seating God and (?)
Then I wrote within, within.
An open cyst, that tear in his eye.
He found his soul and lost his heart.
Away and away and away and away.

CHORUS (w/ INTRO RIFF)

Am                                        G
I put another log on the fire, some fuel for you.
Am                                         G
I put another log on the fire, some fuel for you.

OUTRO
Em G Am7 G
Em G Am7 Em
