This is my interpretation of the song. It is my favourite song off

Chorus:
I didn't really try to figure this part out and I only tabbed what
I thought was the backing guitar. Its based around the A and D
chord structures, like the first parts of the song. It shouldnt be
too hard to figure out. The chords are just interchanged.

Lyrics:

Verse 1:
His hands are clenched
His knuckles white
He got a gun
And gave up the fight
When I found out
I couldn't even cry
Well I am now
And I'm tryin' to figure out why

Chorus:
I'll save it for you
You save me from me
And the hole in my head I can see
Tell her I love her
Tell the kids that I loved them
Oh, it's a bad dream
I've got only time
Yeah, it's a bad dream
I've got only time
You know it's a bad dream
I've got only time
I wish it was a bad dream
I wish it was a bad dream
'Cause it's gonna hurt a long time, yeah

Verse 2:
He lies awake
With saddened eyes
Sleeping babies
Keeping him alive

Chorus x1

Or get on with dying
