This is just my impression of the song based on listening to it and may or may
not be right. All work is my own and I would appreciate it if you didn't
plagiarize it, cheers!
I am writing this from the perspective of playing it through an RC-30 Loop
station.

Tuning: E B G D A E

Intro: 

First loop:
(Place this in the first track)

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------2-2-2-2-2------------------|
D|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--5-5-5-4-4-4-4-4--2-2-2-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-4-4-4-4-4-|
A|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5--3-3-3------------7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Second loop:
This starts on the second bar. Listen closely for the timing
(Place this in the second track)

e|--------0---0----|-------0---0------------0---0------------0---0------------|
B|--------0---0----|-------0---0------------0---0------------0---0------------|
G|-----------------|----------------------------------------------------------|
D|--2-(2)---2------|-2-(2)---2--------2-(2)---2--------2-(2)---2--------------|
A|-----------------|----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------|----------------------------------------------------------|

Third Loop
The third thing to be looped is the beat and again, listen closely for timing.
Also note that this loop also starts on the second bar of the first loop, which
has realistically now become the first bar of your overall motif if you listen
closely. This goes in a 4/4 beat sense:
(Also place this on the second track)

 Kick Sound|x--x|--x-|x--x|--x-|    
Snare Sound|----|x---|----|x---|

Now you should have:
Track 1: With loop 1
Track 2: With loop 2 & 3

Track 2 plays for the rest of the song continuously whilst track 1 is only used
for 3/4's of the verses so you will want to make track 1 your active track as it
will be the only one being stopped and started.

Verse one:
You allow the two tracks to play for the first two segments of lyrics:

Choices, It's always what you make it but then you and I are the same
Choices, Peculiar how you throw them in my face while you abstain

In the third part of the first verse there is a change and it goes like this:
At the end of the second segment of the verse stop track 1 and play
  This is all about equality        I'm sure you've heard of the term somewhere
e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|
A|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

After this play Track 1 through one more time through the lyrics:

No less, you've made your own reality no need to deal with me, yeah, yeah, yeah.
 
Then stop it as the chorus then begins

Chorus:
Listen closely to the track for both timing and strumming patterns
                  Why dont you shout out my name
e|-5-5---------|--5-------------------------0---------------------|
B|-5-5-5-5-5-5-|--5-------------------------5---------------------|
G|-5-5-5-5-5-5-|--5-------------------------4---------------------|
D|-7-7-4-4-4/5-|--7-------------------------5---------------------|
A|-------------|--------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------|--------------------------------------------------|
   Show my face so there's someone to aim for and

A|-0---------------------------9-9-----------12-12----------------------------|

   Why wont you shout out my name     Why wont you look me in the eye no more
e|-5-------------------------0---------5--------------------------0-----------|

G|-5-------------------------4---------5--------------------------4------7----|
D|-7-------------------------5---------7--------------------------5------9----|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|-10----------------------10-----------10--------|
G|-9-----------------------9------------11--------|
D|-10----------------------10-----------12--------|
A|-0-----------------------9----------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------|
 
Interlude:
Track 1 is started again whilst Bernhoft plays this riff over the top
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------3---3--3--0---------3---3--3--1---------3---3--3--0--------3---3--|
G|-------2---2--2--0---------2---2--2--0---------2---2--2--0--------2---2--|
D|-2-(2)---2-----------2-(2)---2-----------2-(2)---2-----------2-(2)--2----|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Verse 2:
At this point, as Track 2 is never stopped till the end of the song and in the
interlude you have just resumed Track 1, both tracks should be playing and just
like the first verse, they are just played out with these lyrics:

Choices, you say I made a bad one, but how about yourself?
Voices, it's a cheap independence if you drift like a snowflake

Once again in the third segment there is a change however this one is a little
different and goes as follows:
Stop Track 1 and play:
You try to hide behind absurdities, Take a break, and I'll walk on water
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--|

D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

After this play Track 1 through one more time through the lyrics:

Princess, wake up and smell the coffee, now I'll just stay awake

Then stop Track 1 as the chorus then begins

Chorus:
Same as the last, listen closely to the track for both timing and strumming
patterns ect.
     Why dont you shout out my name

Bridge:
At this point, if you have a phaser you should turn it on, and if you own the
boss rc-30 theres a built in one that you can use easily.
When the bridge comes just keep Track 2 going and keep Track 1 off and basically
just play the following:

You get the hills, and get even further away,         and that's Norwegian style
e|---------------------------------------------------------8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--|
B|-8-8-8-7-7-7-7-7--5-5-5-10-10-10-10-10--8-8-8-7-7-7-7-7--8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8--|

Send me your bills, I will pay them with interest,        all the best...

D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Stop the phaser at this point and play the following:

e|--5-----------------------0-----------------------|
B|--5-----------------------5-----------------------|

A|--------------------------------------------------|

                            (turn phaser on here)

B|-10----------------------10-----------10--------|
G|-9-----------------------9------------11--------|
D|-10----------------------10-----------12--------|
A|-0-----------------------9----------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------|

Outro:
At the outro you should continue to have the phaser in use till pretty much the end of the
song and you can also resume Track 1 so both Track 1 and 2 are playing and at this
point you can now loop on top of that even further starting with the following
phrase:

e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------3---3--3--0---------3---3--3--1---------3---3--3--0--------3---3--3--1-|
G|-------2---2--2--0---------2---2--2--0---------2---2--2--0--------2---2--2--0-|
D|-2-(2)---2-----------2-(2)---2-----------2-(2)---2-----------2-(2)--2---------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Also if you listen carefully you will here a bass part looped in, which can be
done with an octaver or Digitech whammy ect. Listen very closely for timing as
this bass part is quiet tricky whilst singing:

e|-------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|--10----10---9----9---7---7---6---6--|
E|-----12--------10-------8-------7----|

This continues till the end, where the last two chords are:

e|-----------------------|
B|--5--------------5-----|
G|--5--------------4-----|
D|--5--------------5-----|
A|-----------------7-----|
E|-----------------------|
