This song sounds so much like something U2 would make, wow.

I've tabbed the whole song and all the riffs as well that might be violins, keyboard and 
stuff they use as guitar.

I haven't noted down the exact strums so please figure out the rhythm yourself.

Tuning: Half Step Down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)

INTRO:

  Rhythm

    E5      F#5     A5

Eb--0000000-0000000-00000000000-|
Bb--0000000-0000000-00000000000-|
Gb--xxxxxxx-2222222-22222222222-|
Db--2222222-4444444-22222222222-|
Ab--2222222-4444444-00000000000-|
Eb--0000000-2222222-------------|

These chords sound better than the powerchords if you're playing alone.


  Lead

Eb-------------------------------|
Bb-9-9-9--10-10-10--12-12--------|
Gb-------------------------------|
Db-------------------------------|
Ab-------------------------------|
Eb-------------------------------|

VERSE:

OK this is a bit tricky. Theres alot of effects and keyboard in this so i transcribed 
would sound best if you want to play live.

Rhythm:

"into the night..."

Eb---0-----------0-----|
Bb---------------------|
Gb-9---9-------7---7---|
Db-9-----------7-------|
Ab-7-----------5-------|
Eb---------------------|

"the sound of a fight..."

Eb---0-----------0-------------|
Bb-----------------------------|
Gb-9---9-------7---7-----------|
Db-9-----9-----7----7------7-7-|
Ab-7-----------5-----------7-7-|
Eb-------------------------5-5-|


Lead:

Eb-------------------|
Bb-10-10----9---9-10-|
Gb-9-----9-----------|
Db-------------------|
Ab-------------------|
Eb-------------------|

That riff comes in on particular intervals during the verse. Listen to figure out when to play it

PRE-CHORUS:

Eb---------------------------------------|
Bb-8-9---8-9---8-9--8-9--8-9-8-9-8-9-8-9-|
Gb---------------------------------------|
Db---------------------------------------|
Ab---------------------------------------|
Eb---------------------------------------|

Thats the main riff of the pre-chorus. It gets faster as it progresses as shown by the tab.

Then towards the end another guitar comes in with a distorted:

Eb-12---12----12---12----|
Bb---12---12----12----12-|
Gb-----------------------|
Db-----------------------|
Ab-----------------------|
Eb-----------------------|

CHORUS:

Rhythm

E5      F#5     A5

Eb--0000000-0000000-00000000000-|
Bb--0000000-0000000-00000000000-|
Gb--xxxxxxx-2222222-22222222222-|
Db--2222222-4444444-22222222222-|
Ab--2222222-4444444-00000000000-|
Eb--0000000-2222222-------------|


Lead

Eb-------------------------------|
Bb-9-9-9--10-10-10--12-12--------|
Gb-------------------------------|
Db-------------------------------|
Ab-------------------------------|
Eb-------------------------------|


INTERLUDE B/W CHORUS and VERSE 2:

This is the small orchestral bit tabbed for the guitar

Eb-------------|
Bb-10-9--12-9--|
Gb-------------|
Db-------------|
Ab-------------|
Eb-------------|

Play the above 3 times

then play this once:

Eb----------|
Bb-10-9-7-9-|
Gb----------|
Db----------|
Ab----------|
Eb----------|


VERSE 2:

Rhythm is the same as verse 1

Lead is a bit different, i think another guitar plays this:

Eb--------------------12------10----------|
Bb---10--9h10p9--------------------12-10--|
Gb-9--------------------------------------|
Db----------------------------------------|
Ab----------------------------------------|
Eb----------------------------------------|

play the above twice then play the orchestral interlude till the chorus


CHORUS:
repeat

BRIDGE:

Its on the keyboard but the chords are like this:

Eb--0~----0~-----0~----0~-|
Bb--5~----0~-----0~----0~-|
Gb--6~----2~-----9~----8~-|
Db--6~----4~-----9~----9~-|
Ab--4~----4~-----7~----6~-|
Eb------------------------|


Theres a small piano bit that goes:

Eb-5-4------------|
Bb-----5----------|
Gb----------------|
Db----------------|
Ab----------------|
Eb----------------|

Then the orchestral riff starts again. play that.

CHORUS:
repeat once

then another guitar plays this on the last time you play the chorus:

Eb-------------------------------------------------------|
Bb-------------------------------------------------------|
Gb-9/11111111/1313131313  /141414141414 16161616161616/
Db-x/xxxxxxx/ xxxxxxxxx  /xxxxxxxxxxxx/xxxxxxxxxxxxxx/
Ab-7/999999/  11111111  /121212121212/14141414141414/
Eb---------------------------------------------------


sorry about the formatting but i hope you get it, its octave powerchords.
play the above 3 times then:


Eb-------------------------------------------------------|
Bb-------------------------------------------------------|
Gb-9/11111111/1313131313  /141414141414/21212121212121/
Db-x/xxxxxxx/ xxxxxxxxx  /xxxxxxxxxxxx/xxxxxxxxxxxxxx/
Ab-7/999999/  11111111  /121212121212/19191919191919/
Eb---------------------------------------------------


Well thats the whole song. There might be a few inaccuracies but this is what i feel is 
best interpretation if your looking to play this live.
