I left out the fills that he uses in this song that sort of double the vocal melody at 
points.  listen to recording to figure them out. Enjoy

D7                         Dm7
you remind me of you
                                       C
the way you shot right through and how
you broke my window glass,
D7                            Dm7
fast it happened so fast
                 C
I have to confess that I
                G

                F                    G
despite all the mess and the broken glass
             C
I was impressed

(Same Chords as above)

here's where I disappeared
where I fell off the pier and to..
and to be rescued I did wait
I watched waterbugs skate
as they draw figure eights as they draw
from the bottom of the lake as they draw
I watched waterbugs skate as they draw
                        F                               G ---G--G#
From the bottom of the lake I watched the waterbugs skate

Am
memories like mohair sweaters
                                       C       C/B
stretched and pilled faux distressed letters
Am
moose's horns and figure eights
white plastic bags in search of mates
           C
what suffocates the land
            G
in the memory of garbage can
                D/F#
memory of garbage can

Chorus
F                                               C
you can't be found when the bell rings
F                                                     C
you weren't there that day for the naming of things
               G
the naming of things
                        D/F#
The naming of things
                         F           G
where the homeroom bell rings
                      E
the homeroom bell rings

Solo-   F   Dm7       C   x4            1234

D7                             Dm7
hey, just look at the mess you made today
                              C
didn't really think it would get this bad
D7                                 Dm7
hey, feel like you're living in a Russian play
                               C
where it seems like you made everybody mad

(Same Chords as Verse 1)
you remind me of you
when you shot through
and broke my window glass
it happened so fast
I have to confess
I was impressed, I was impressed
despite all the mess and the broken glass
I was impressed

Repeat chorus

Lack of formatting. Shortcutted by using things such as "same chords above" making the tab nearly impossible to sight-read without continuously pausing in the middle of the song and scrolling up to refresh the old noggin on what order the chords came in. Correct chords and lyrics, just annoying/lazy formatting
