The wonderful last song on "The Bedside Drama". As with any Of Montreal song,
there are almost as many chords as there are words; I tried to be as detailed
with the chords as I could, but I may have missed or misinterpreted a few. Listen
along with his voice and try to add or subtract notes according to the melody,
and change the chords to suit you.  (n/c) means stop playing and sing. I may
easily be wrong about the capo, i didnt realize my guitar was a half step sharp
when I transcribed this.  If anyone comes up with a regular version they should
totally put it on the internet.

Intro:   Bm   Db

A            (n/c) D
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
Ebdim                Bb          G
But you're unable to touch your loved ones
Ab                  A        Ebdim    Bm    Db
Give them kisses or see them smile at you
A            (n/c) D
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
Ebdim                      Bb     G
But you give up your whole life's work
    Ab           A        Ebdim               Bm   Db
And never can reverse the bad things that you did

        B                  E
While alive you still have hope
              D                D
That when you die it might be better
Eb (n/c) Bb          Eb
When you die you are dead
                  C           Bb              D               Eb
And you know for sure if it's better, if it's better, if it's better
  Bm        C7b5
I hope it's better

A            (n/c) D
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
Ebdim                     Bb        G
Though you can't feel the warmth of summer
Ab                    A               Ebdim         Bm   Db
Smell the flowers of spring, or drink cider in the fall
A            (n/c) D
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
Ebdim                   Bb      G
Though it's too late to say the words
     Ab            A             Ebdim            Bm   Db
You wanted them to hear when you didn't have the nerve

           B           E             D          D
You get to spend eternity thinking about your life
Eb (n/c) Bb                Eb
Think of all the time that is 
     C          Bb           D           Eb
Cuz eternity is forever, is forever, is forever
            Bm   C7b5
What will I do forever?

        F             Bb               Eb
At this time there is nothing you can change
         Cm          Dm        Bb        G#
You can only sit and watch and hope they understand

(evil noises here)

A            (n/c) D
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
Ebdim               Bb    G  Am             A
Because there isn't anything else to do but sleep
       Ebdim          Bm   Db
I feel sorry for the dead 

Outro:   strum A and sing hula's for as long as you please.

I think you're right about a lot of stuff here! You two are both 5 cents off. Maybe I will be the one to find it out. But probably not!
