Hey everyone, 

I did my best to learn this by ear (since I couldn't find any place that had this tabbed already).
This is my first submission in a good long while so I hope it helps in any way possible.

- Andrew

Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)
Chords: A# (688xxx)
        G# (466xxx)
        C# (x466xx) or (911xxx)
        F# (244xxx)

Intro (before lyrics begin): Alternates from A# to G#

Verse: 

   C#                                  A#
This day feels anything but typical, I woke up choking on a miracle

   A#             G#              F#               C#
I dont know why, I dont know why, I dont know why      (X2)

   C#                                  A#
My teacher told me what Im made from, I beg to differ with the outcome

   A#             G#               F#              C#
I dont know why, I dont know why, I dont know why      (X2)

Chorus:

                   G#
Theres nowhere to run, 

            F#             C#
When youre hiding from the truth, 

                  G#
Its some kind of joke,

          F#                C#
When the tears are bleeding blue,

              G# 
Looking-glass fun, 

         F#                C#
When the pain is caused by you,

                 A#                 F#
Its some kind of joke, some kind of joke


Verse 2: 

(Starts with the A# to G# switch before lyrics begin again).

 C#                                 A#
Im almost done with all my secrets, Ill take my time to take a deep breath 

A#                G#               F#                C#
I don't know why, I dont know why, I dont know why       (X2)


Chorus:

                   G#
There's nowhere to run, 

           F#              C#
When youre hiding from the truth,

                   G# 
It's some kind of joke,

          F#                C# 
When the tears are bleeding blue,

              G# 
Looking-glass fun,

          F#               C# 
When the pain is caused by you,

                  A#                  F#
It's some kind of joke, some kind of joke



Bridge (repeated X2): This begins with C# for a few beats. 
          
C#
In a room full of red, pretend to be dumb

C# 
We fall on our face, pretend to be numb 

(Some instrumental music (all C#)).


Chorus:

                   G#
There's nowhere to run,

           F#             C#  
When your hiding from the truth,

                   G# 
It's some kind of joke,

          F#                 C# 
When the tears are bleeding blue,

              G# 
Looking-glass fun,

          F#               C# 
When the pain is caused by you.

                  A#                       F#
It's some kind of joke, and some times we choke 


(Another instrumental which all follows the chorus progession of G# to F# to C#).

                  A#                 F#
Its some kinf of joke, some kind of joke.


Ending note to the song is C# which played for a few beats straight). 



Well there it is everyone! I'd like to give credit to Monica Kirby 
and her fabulous Youtube video which had the piano rendition of this 
song of which I listened to in order to help make this tab. 
Also a thank you to Alyrics.com which helped me remember a word or 
two that I forgot. And last but not least, a big shout out to AWOLNATION 
for being an incredible source of inspiration to young musicians out there!

Keep doing what youre doing! We are all AWOLNATION!

- Andy B.

I think it's Bm instead of B, other than that good chords!
