This is the basic tablature for playing it solo, like Andy does in a few videos!
The other tabs I saw had it really weirdly off, this one should be pretty spot on,
I've compared it to videos rather closely.
First things first, you should have your guitar tuned
a half-step down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb).

Intro / Verse (You can either play it with the intro open
and the verse palm-muted,
or all palm-muted, it is up to your personal discretion.)

Eb--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Bb--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Gb------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x------------------------------------|
Db------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|
Ab------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--|
Eb------x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--|

"We, started a fire..."


Chorus (This first part: in some versions I've heard,
it's played as 8th notes,
or else-wise;
so I'll just put the chords here.
It is really easy to play along with, so try it out!)

Eb-------------------|
Bb-------------------|
Gb-------------------|
Db------3------5-----|
Ab------3------5-----|
Eb------1------3-----|

"I know.."

Slightly trickier bit:

Eb--------------------------------------------|
Bb--------------------------------------------|
Gb------5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5----|
Db------5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5----|
Ab------3-3-3-3--2-2-2-2--0-0-0-0--x-x-x-x----|
Eb------x-x-x-x--x-x-x-x--x-x-x-x--3-3-3-3----|

"That you hate me too.."

Then repeat the first half of the chorus:

Eb-------------------|
Bb-------------------|
Gb-------------------|
Db------3------5-----|
Ab------3------5-----|
Eb------1------3-----|

"You always say you do."

Then repeat the intro/verse! Pretty gosh-darned simple!

Lyrics:

*whistle*

We, started a fire,
that was never supposed to burn out.
You, started a band,
that was cool for a while but it turned pretty bland.
I, started a fight,
with a neighbor next door and his pesky wife.
You, started a job,
that you hate when you're sober and hate even more when you're not.

I know
you hate me too.
Always say you do.

*whistle*

And you, moved to Japan,
thought a clean bill of health and a camera could you show you the plan.
I bought a bird,
that repeats what I say but "I'm lonely." is all that it's heard.
You found a guy,
that is clearly the opposite me with a black motorbike.
I dicked (digged?) around,
but it's just like a movie that's picture is off with the sound.

I know
you hate me too.
You always say you do.

*guitar lead solo* OR *whistle*

You, started to write,
it was subtle at first but the danger was clearly in sight.

I don't reply,
due to lack of an ego and laziness cuts like a knife.

You say that you're good,
had a baby with biker and named him Forest Whitaker.
I'm laying low,
on the probable chance you convince me to give him a home.

I know,
you hate me too.
You always say you do.
And I know,
that you hate me too.
You always say you do.

*whistle*

Really? 2 stars? For what reason exactly would this warrant 2 stars? It was far more correct and accurate to the band's way of playing it than the previous version was, and the new version is basically the same exact thing with some of the non-guitar parts tabbed out. Yet they both have 5 stars.
This is me playing my tab (a couple months ago.) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yAqVJQLfwao
