Most of the chords in the song are not full chords but merely 5 chords or power chords, 
the minors are pretty much irrelevant.

G#m             B
I'm floating in a black balloon
C#m             E
O.D. on Easter afternoon
G#m    F#m            E         B
   My mamma told me, "Baby stay clean,
             C#m            E
there's no in between."

And all you ladies and you gentleman
Between's all you've ever seen or been
Fit poorly and arrange the sight
Doll her up in virgin white

G#m    F#m   E
   You disappoint me
C#m                        D#m
You people rakin' in on the world

the heart of a blackbird

E                B             C#m          E
Shine on me baby cause it's rainin' in my heart

A distorted reality's is now a necessity to be free

great tab. but in the beggining when it goes to the chords from the intro riff, the first chord (just for the first time) is an E. after that the first chord in the progression in g#m like you said. otherwise good job. thanks

Good tab, except that, in the verse, the C#ms and F#ms should be replaced with C# and F#. In the chorus, the C#m is correct, but the F#m is still a F#. But, still, good tab, I enjoyed it :-)

awesome, besides what zap ^ said about the minors. im pretty sure the D# should be major too. but very helpful.
