STANDARD TUNING 
CAPO on 1st fret  (Tab is relative to capo)

This tab covers the palm-muted fingerpicking guitar in the song.

All the notes are 16th notes, listen to the song to make sure you get the rhythm right :)
I use my thumb, index and middlefinger to pick this song while also using the palm of my hand
to mute the notes.
Thumb is always playing the base note. Index and middle are always on the D and G-string.

Intro:   

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----2--------2--------2-----2--------2--------2--------0--------0----------|
D|-------5--------5--------------5--------5-----------3--------3--------3----|
A|-5--------5--------5-----5--------5--------5-----1--------1--------1-------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------0--------0--------------0--------0--------------0--------0----------|
D|----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3----|
A|-1--------1--------1-----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3-------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------0--------0--------------0--------0----------------------------------|
D|----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3----------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3-------------------------------|

Repeat 3x BUT on the third time the last part (with G as the base note) goes:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------0--------0----------------------------------------------------------|
D|----3--------3--------3----------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-3--------3--------3-------------------------------------------------------|

Verse and pre-chorus are the same as intro but without the last shortened bit with the G.



Chorus:

This is how it ends...
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------0--------0--------------0--------0--------------0--------0---------|
D|----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3----|
A|-1--------1--------1-----3--------3--------3-----5--------5--------5-------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|-------0--------0--------------0--------0--------------0--------0----------|
D|----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3----|
A|-5--------5--------5-----1--------1--------1-----3--------3--------3-------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------0--------0--------------0--------0----------------------------------|
D|----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3----------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3-------------------------------|

Repeat 2x but on the second time the last part (with G as the base note) only goes:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-3-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

After chorus, the verse/intro/pre-chorus part begins again.

After the 2nd chorus, play the verse part until the bridge begins.




Bridge:

All the voices in my mind....
e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------0--------0--------------0--------0--------------0--------0--------------0--------0-----------|
D|----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3-----3--------3--------3-----|
A|-1--------1--------1-----3--------3--------3-----5--------5--------5-----5--------5--------5--------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Repeat the bridge part for the rest of the song!

NOTE: The chorus and bridge part isn't actually played that way but those are the chords and how I play it. 
Enjoy!
