we need a myth

We need a 
G
myth
  
We need an amethyst 
Bm
bridge
  
We need a high hanging 
Em
cliff
Jump, fall and lift
  
We can 
C
make it
But we need a myth
We need a path through the mist
Like in our beds, we were just kids
Like what was said by our parents
  
G♯
myth
  
’Cause what we’re after is 
C♯
just this
A myth
’Cause what we’re after is just this
  
We need a 
A
myth
  
I feel my heart’s like a 
C♯m
fist
  
Words spilling out of the blessed 
F♯m
lips
  
Of any prophet or 
D
goddess
I need a myth
Brought back to life by a kiss
Scrape away grey cement
Show me the world as it was again
As it was in a myth
A red ribbon to reconnect
The lady’s head to her neck
And to forget that her throat was ever slit
  
’Cause what we’re after is 
B♭
just this
  
It’s a 
E♭
myth
’Cause what we’re after is just this
  
And I’m 
G♯m
sick of all these 
F♯
picture books that 
E
try
To steal some old reflections for their light
But desperate measures point to desperate times
  
And that’s 
F♯
why
We need a myth
B E♭m G♯m E 
(Instrumental)
  
We’re cut 
B
adrift
  
We need a mass 
E♭m
uplift
  
The world is trembling and 
G♯m
weeping
  
Just at the point of 
E
believing
In a myth
The sun that shines on my head
The moon that lights me to bed
Were two identical twins
Inside of a myth
I heard the voice of a friend
On Lethe’s banks, wading in
And he said, “Before I forget…”
  
We need a 
C♯
myth
  
As we lean in to 
Fm
kiss
  
To get two nails through the 
B♭m
wrist
  
To get covered in 
F♯
blood
And to get covered in spit
  
And to 
C♯
forgive
And if all we’re taught is a trick
Why would this feeling persist?
And with the truth closing in
I must insist
We need a myth

As the song progresses, they use barre chords further up the neck; for example, even though the last set of chords has an F-minor in it, you'll want to do it at the 7th fret instead of the 1st if you want to be as accurate as possible.
