Guaranteed correct. Great song. Poetic, and very well written.

It's Easy to Sleep when your Dead
-Written by Kevin Barnes
-Performed by of Montreal 

Note: I started writing the tab in standard, but realized it was in Eb standard. E flat 

Intro: Cm Cdim

A# (rest) D#
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
E-7 5b D#+ C+ (x8989x) (xx6554) (xx3221)
But you're unable to touch your loved ones
F A# E-7 5b Cm7 C° (xx5656)
Give them kisses or see them smile at you
A# (rest) D#
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
E-7 5b D#+ C+
But you give up your whole life's work
F A E-7 5b Cm7 C°
And never can reverse the bad things that you did

Cm F
While alive you still have hope
Cm7 A#
That when you die it might be better
E (rest) B E
When you die you are dead
Em C#m B E
And you know for sure if it's better, if it's better, if it's better
G C#° (xx6764)
I hope it's better

A# (rest) D#
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
E-7 5b D#+ C+
Though you can't feel the warmth of summer
F A# E-7 5b Cm7 C°
Smell the flowers of spring, or drink cider in the fall
A# (rest) D#
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
E-7 5b D#+ C+
Though it's too late to say the words
F A# E-7 5b Cm7 C°
You wanted them to hear when you didn't have the nerve

Cm F Cm7 Eb
You get to spend eternity thinking about your life
C#m7 B5 (x5657x) (rest) B E
Think of all the time that is
Em C#m B E
Cuz eternity is forever, is forever, is forever
G Em C#7b5
What will I do forever?

F#m B E
At this time there is nothing you can change
C#m9 (xx6767) D#7 G#m Ebm7 B5 Eb°
You can only sit and watch and hope they understand

(clear electronic notes in Bm, spring, and possibly guitar bends)

A# (rest) D#
It's easy to sleep when you're dead
E-7 5b D#+ C+ F A#
Because there isn't anything else to do but sleep
E-7 5b Cm7 C°
I feel sorry for the dead

feel for the dead

Hey man, thanks for making this tab! I'm having a bit of trouble discerning between chords and stuff, it seems to switch between half step and standard quite a bit? Also, can you please elaborate on what these mean:
E-7 5b D#+ C+
