Couldn't find the lyrics anywhere, so this is my best guess at the words.  Sorry 
if I messed up a couple.
Also, I don't know the official chord names.
From what I've seen, they play it in standard tuning either open or capo 1st fret.
Tab was based on this performance (no capo): http://www.youtube.com/watch?

[INTRO]

E A E A E A E A


[VERSE 1]
       E                                   A
Well I woke up to the sound of silence and guns
                              E                  A
were cutting like knives in a fist fight
      E          
And I found you with a bottle of wine
     A                                                E          A
your head in the curtains and heart like the 4th of July

                   E
You swore and said we are not
           F#
we are not shining stars
       G#
This i know
              A2
cause i never said we are

            E
Though I've never been through hell like that
     A                                                E         A   
I've closed enough windows to know you can never look back


[CHORUS]
          E                         A             B
If you're lost and alone, or you're sinkin like a stone
      E         A        B
Carry on
         E                         A             B
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground
      E         A        B
Carry on
                 E       A       E        A
Carry on carry on


[VERSE 2]
     E                                           A
So I met up with some friends at the edge of the night
              E          A
at a bar off 75
       E                                            A
And we talked and talked about how our parents will die
          E                       A
All our neighbors and wives


[PRE CHORUS]
        E
But i'd like to think
      F#
I can cheat it all
        G#                         A2
to make up for the times i've been cheated on
         E
And it's nice to know
           F#
when i was left for dead
      G#
I was found and I know not these streets
     A2                B2
I am not the ghost you want to be


[CHORUS]
          E                         A             B
If you're lost and alone, or you're sinkin like a stone
      E         A        B
Carry on
         E                         A             B
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground
      E         A        B
Carry on

B
ohhhhhhhhhhhhh


[BRIDGE]
   A          E            B            
My head is on fire, but my legs they're fine
            A             E        B
Cause after all, they are mine     
                 A           E                B
Lay your clothes down on the floor, close the door, hold the phone
        A             B
show me how, no one's ever gonna stop us now

E   F#   G#  A2

E   F#   G#  A2


[PRE CHORUS]
      E              F#
Cause we are, we are shining stars
         G#               A2
We are invincible, we are who we are
       E                       F#
On our darkest day, when we're miles away
         G#                         A2     B2
Sun will come, we will find our way home


[CHORUS]
          E                         A             B
If you're lost and alone, or you're sinkin like a stone
      E         A        B
Carry on
         E                         A             B
May your past be the sound of your feet upon the ground
      E         A        B
Carry on

Carry on carry on
