Since I couldn't find any chords for Babel I decided to do them myself.

Capo 2nd

Intro C

      Am        Am       Am          Am
Cos i know that time has numbered my days
         Am  Am        F    F         C     F     C     F    C    F     C     F
And I'll go along with everything you say
         Am        Am       Am         Am
But I'll ride home laughing Look at me now
            Am          Am
Through the walls of my town
          F    F    C     F     C     F    C    F     C     F
they come crumbling down


       Am            Am         Am     Am
And my ears hear the call of my unborn sons
      Am        Am     F      F        C     F     C     F    C    F     C    F
And I know that coices colour all I've done
         Am         Am         Am         Am
But I'll explain it all to the watchman's son
        Am    Am           F      F        C     F     C     F    C    F     C     F
I ain't never lived a year better spent in Love


         Am      G         C       F
Cos I'll know my weakness, know my voice
    Am      G       C         F      G
And I'll believe in grace and choice
      Am      G       C        F
And I know perhaps my heart is fast
    Am      G        C     F     G
But I'll be born without a mask

C     F     C     F    C    F     C     F


         Am        Am          Am           Am
Like the city that nurtured my greed and my Pride
  Am         Am   F F      C     F     C     F    C    F     C     F
I stretch my arms into the sky
      Am     Am    Am         Am
I cry Babel, Babel look at me now
            Am          Am
Through the walls of my town
         F    F    C     F     C     F    C    F     C     F
The come crumbling down


        Am            Am
You ask where will we stand 
       Am              Am
in the winds that will have
   Am     Am       F      F      C     F     C     F    C    F     C     F
as all we see will slip into the cloud
        Am             Am           Am             Am
So come down from your mountain and stand where we been
    Am       Am        F            F   C     F     C     F    C    F     C     F
You know our breath is weak and our body thin


C        F              C
Press my nose up to the glass
            C
around your heart
C          F           F      F        C
I shoul've known I was weaker from the start
C                 F                G       F      Am
You'll build your walls and I will play my bloody part
   Am    Am   F    C
To tear, tear them down
               Am    F    F    C
Well I'm gonna tear, tear them down


         Am      G         C       F
Cos I'll know my weakness, know my voice
    Am      G       C         F      G
And I'll believe in grace and choice
      Am      G       C        F
And I know perhaps my heart is fast
    Am      G        C     F     G
But I'll be born without a mask

C     F     C     F    C    F     C     F

C     F     C     F    C    F     C

I just noticied myself a fault my friends.
In the second verse, on 'a year better spent in love'
It's two times F instead of an Am.
Sorry for my mistake.
If anyone knows how to edit theses tabs, in case of there's the possibility to edit, please let me know.

try this:
F F C F C F C G C

instead of this:
F F C F C F C F C F

maybe it's not exactly the way Marcus plays it, but i think it sounds more like the song when you only play guitar.

I don't have a capo but I find that hitting the transpose button three steps down (I tune to Eb) sounds really good as well (Am=F#m, F=D, C=A)

Either way... good tab for a good song.
