I couldn't find a good tab online that I thought actually sounded good so I decided to 
post my own. This is 100% correct.
Your G, B and e strings do not exist in this song so forget they're there and don't 
touch them.

Sometimes instead of going all the way up the fretboard for the second part he'll play 
it this way too but, its still the same thing.

Lyrics:

We're a nation full of dumbbells Pulling night shifts at the gym We're a nation full of 
bookworm girls Dumbing down to fall in love with them
We're a nation full of suspects Whistling dixie at the scene And we're a nation full of 
bad detectives Selling clues to everyone we meet
We're a nation full of envy Insecure and losing sleep We're a nation full of jealous 
boyfriends Driven nuts by facts and history
We're a nation full of ivy It's wall to wall, to wall, all green We're a nation full of 
sound byte blood cells Bound in knots and swelling down the stream
We wrap Bibles up in blankets Just in case we're watched in sleep But it's the 
slingshots underneath our pillows That keep us calm and rested and relieved
'Cause we're a nation built on eggshells Bandages and apple seeds Attractive homes on 
top of bruised foundations That come apart gradually before they're leveled completely 
Before they're leveled completely
