FLORENCE AND THE MACHINE - Ship To Wreck

This song is from the album How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful(2015), released on Jun 02, 2015.
I loved the fast rhythm of this song. The hi-hats kept on working throughout the song and that made a huge impact on the rhythm. The guitars in the background were great as well, mainly because it went great with the vocals. The power in her vocals was amazing, you could feel her exploding in the choruses.

[INTRO] Am G F Em Dm Am x2
[VERSE]
Am                       F      Dm                 Am
Don't touch the sleeping pills, they mess with my head
Am            F                 Dm             Am
Dredging of big white sharks, swimming in the bed
Am                  F           Dm          Am
And here comes a killer whale, send me to sleep
Am                   F       Dm            Am
Thrashing the covers off, has me by its teeth

[PRE-CHORUS]
    C       Dm              Am                  F
And ah, my love remind me, what was it that I said?
C                          Dm          Am            F
I can't help but pull the earth around me to make my bed
    C       Dm              Am                F
And ah, my love remind me, what was it that I did?
       C                      Dm                 Am              F
Did I drink too much? Am I losing touch? Did I build a ship to wreck?

[CHORUS]
     Am G F Em  Dm Am
To wreck, to wreck
     Am G F       Dm                     Am
To wreck, did I build this ship to wreck?

[VERSE]
Am               F          Dm          Am
What's with the long face? Do you want more?
Am              F           Dm                Am
Thousands of red-eyed mice, scratching at the door
Am              F              Dm                         Am
Don't let the curtain catch you cause you've been here before
Am               F               Dm                  Am
The chair is an island, darling, you can't touch the floor

[PRE-CHORUS]
    C       Dm              Am                  F
And ah, my love remind me, what was it that I said?
C                          Dm          Am            F
I can't help but pull the earth around me to make my bed
    C       Dm              Am                F
And ah, my love remind me, what was it that I did?
       C                      Dm                 Am              F
Did I drink too much? Am I losing touch? Did I build a ship to wreck?

[CHORUS]
     Am G F Em  Dm Am
To wreck, to wreck
     Am G F       Dm                     Am
To wreck, did I build this ship to wreck?

[INSTRUMENTAL] Am G F Em Dm Am x2

[BRIDGE]
      F       G
Good God, the star, the skies
        Am    F
We are lost, into the breach we got tossed
          G                 Am
And the world is coming in fast

[PRE-CHORUS]
    C       Dm              Am                  F
And ah, my love remind me, what was it that I said?
C                          Dm          Am            F
I can't help but pull the earth around me to make my bed
    C       Dm              Am                F
And ah, my love remind me, what was it that I did?
       C                      Dm                 Am              F
Did I drink too much? Am I losing touch? Did I build a ship to wreck?

[CHORUS]
     Am G F Em  Dm Am
To wreck, to wreck
     Am G F       Dm                     Am
To wreck, did I build this ship to wreck?

[CHORUS]
     Am G F Em  Dm Am
To wreck, to wreck
     Am G F       Dm                     Am
To wreck, did I build this ship to wreck?
