Here are the chords (to play acoustic), some of the other sections and the final solo. 
This is my 1st tab and I hope you have fun playing it. Feel free to correct it. Also, 
thanks to my friend Gregory who helped me identify the chords. |||||

Am                        F
Moving in and out of the shadows.
        Dm
It's no easy mission,
        F
Holding on to how I picture you.


Am F Dm F (2x)


Am                    F
Showing only bits and pieces,
         Dm
Till the tide betrays you,
          F
And your empty allocution.


Am F Dm F


Am                                            F
Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of humility.
Dm                                              F
Searching your eyes for the saint is an act of futility.
Am
Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace of it.
F
Searching your eyes for humility.
Dm
Searching your eyes for a hint or a trace,
            F
I'm still searching, searching.


Am F Dm F (2x)


Am                    F
Showing only bits and pieces,
          Dm
Till the light betrays you,
           F
And your empty allocution.
         Am                    F
Rode the Piper by and down the river.
        Dm
Carcass crippled underneath,
             F
The pounding waves of adoration.

      Am                      F
Pied Piper float on down the river.
          Dm
Bloated carcass, crippled knee,
       F
The weight of adoration.
Am                        F
Moving in and out of the shadows.
        Dm
It's no easy mission,
        F
Holding on to how I picture you.

For what you have it seems pretty close, the part with the power chords between the choruses seemed off to me but not by much (tho I only have the live version to listen to, so maybe the studio is a little different). However, APC plays everything in C#, but all you gotta do to translate it is move everything up 3 frets.

hey! yeah, I agree with you on the power chords. It was a bit a hard to identify everything, specially because of the two guitars. There are probably less power chords, but if you play with an acoustic it sounds very close to the sound - I was listening to the live version :) thanks for stopping by and leaving the feedback! cheers!

Well done! Can play it along with the studio version without transposing the key.

This isn't really a correction, but in the very first verse I think the chord progression could also go Am F C Dm. I'm sure how you have it written is correct, but this way adds an interesting flair, and it fits early on before the rest of the instruments come in.
