Ok, here's how the riffs go with the song:  
 
Riff B 
     My eyes seek reality  
     My fingers seek my veins  
Riff B 
     Theres a dog at your back step  
     He must come in from the rain  
 
Riff C 
     I fall cause I let go  
     The net below has rot away  
Riff C 
     So my eyes seek reality  
     And my fingers seek my veins  
 
Riff D 
     The trash fire is warm  
     But nowhere safe from the storm  
Riff E 
     And I can't bare to see  
     What I've let me be  
     So wicked and worn  
 
Riff D 
     So as I write to you  
     Of what is done and to do  
Riff E 
     Maybe you'll understand  
     And won't cry for this man  
     'Cause low man is due  
 
     Please forgive me  
 
Riff F 
     My eyes seek reality  
     My fingers feel for faith  
Riff F 
     Touch clean with a dirty hand  
     I touched the clean to the waste  
 
Riff D 
     The trash fire is warm  
     But nowhere safe from the storm  
Riff E 
     And I can't bare to see  
     What I've let me be  
     So wicked and worn  
 
Riff D 
     So as I write to you  
     Of what is done and to do  
Riff E 
     Maybe you'll understand  
     And won't cry for this man  
     'Cause low man is due  
 
     Please forgive me  
     Please forgive me  
     Please forgive me  
 
Riff G 
 
Riff G 
     So low the sky is all I see  
Riff G 
     All I want from you is forgive me  
Riff G 
     So you bring this poor dog in from the rain  
Riff G 
     Though he just wants right back out again  
 
Riff F 
     And I cry, to the alley way  
     Confess all to the rain  
Riff F 
     But I lie, lie straight to the mirror  
     The one I've broken, to match my face 
 
Riff D
     The trash fire is warm  
     But nowhere safe from the storm  
Riff E 
     And I can't bare to see  
     What I've let me be  
     So wicked and worn  
 
Riff D 
     So as I write to you (yeah)  
     Of what is done and to do (yeah)  
Riff E 
     Maybe you'll understand  
     And won't cry for this man  
     'Cause low man is due  
 
     Please forgive me  
     Please forgive me  
 
Riff G 
 
Riff G 
     So low the sky is all I see  
Riff G 
     All I want from you is forgive me  
Riff G 
     So you bring this poor dog in from the rain  
Riff G 
     Though he just wants right back out again

     My fingers seek my veins
