Great song great band, pity there aren't more tabs up!

I play it drop D becasue it makes the chorus sound better, more bassey, but you don't have to

Verse 1

The fist two chords are strummed and the last one picked, I can't tell if its the 11 on 
D or 9 on the A for the last note of the run down, but either sounds fine

Asus2  Esus2  C#m/F#
--0-------7----------------------------------------|
--0-------7------9----9----------------------------|
--2-------9-------9-----9-------------<5>-  <------| this harmonic just before
--2-------9--------11-----11-----------------------|        the chorus
--0-------7----9---(9)----(9)-etc.-----------------|
---------------------------------------------------|

Chorus
all palm muted. Another guitar does some distorted stuf based around this

"Oh father make me....."
-------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------|
-4-4-4-4--2-2----7-7-7-7--2-4--------|
-4-4-4-4--2-2----7-7-7-7--2-4--------|
-4-4-4-4--2-2----7-7-7-7--2-4--------|

Verse 2

Same chords as before for guitar 1, the second guitar does some picking around the 
then there is a riff that goes something like this over the C#m/F#

--12-------9--------|
-----12-9-----------|
--------------11----| X2
--------------------|
--------------------|
--------------------|

Chorus 2

Same again

Breakdown
Part 1
"There is no profit in this isolation...."

-----------------------------------7---|
-----------------------------------7---|
-----------------------------------8---| Plenty of times
----------9---9-9-9-9-9---------9--9---|
---/4--7----------------/4----7--------|
---------------------------------------|

Part 2

Guitar 1
--------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------|
-9/11--11/14--14/16-------------------|
--------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------|

Guitar 2
------------------|
------------------|After the last chord there is often just noise, which you
------------------|can get by struming the open strings
--4---2----7---9--|
--4---2----7---9--|
--4---2----7---9--|

Both guitars end the breakdown with
--------------------|
--------------------|
--11-11-11-11-11-9--|
--------------------|
--9--9--9--9--9--7--|
--------------------|

Final chorus

Goes like this


-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------14--13--12-11----14--13--12-11--|
--11-11-11-11--9-9---6-6-6-6--9-11--11---11--11-------11--11--11-------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
--9--9--9--9---7-7---4-4-4-4--7-9--------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-----------------------------------------14--13--12-11----14--13--12-11-|
--11-11-11-11--13-13---6-6-6-6--9-11--11---11--11-------11--11--11------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------|
--9--9--9--9---11-11---4-4-4-4--7-9-------------------------------------|
------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The last couple of times there is something else on guitar 2 over the kast 2 octaves 
might be, but its pretty quite so I can't tell 100%

B----14p13p12p11----|
G-11----------------|

and that is the end.
