A                                     D              E
  Angels fall to the floor, Like they would if I was captain
A                                     D              E
  "Silver children," She roared, "I'm not the son of God"
  A                          D       E
  Somebody help me sing, Can anybody hear me?

  Liars and lovers combine tonight, We're gonna make a scene

[Chorus]

A                      E
Help me be captain of, Our crippled disguises
F#min                           E
I won't show what's underneath, It's time for surprises
A                             E
I can't climb up your ladder, I can't ride your horse
F#min                             E
I've swallowed half an hourglass, So now the landscape is swollen up

[Verse 2]

I gave birth to a fire, It's like it's features where burning
I'm in control, I am the son of God
Somebody help me sing, Can anybody hear me?
Line up your soldiers one final time, We're gonna have a ball

[Chorus]

A                      E
Help me be captain of, Our crippled disguises
F#min                           E
I won't show what's underneath, It's time for surprises
A                             E
I can't climb up your ladder, I can't ride your horse
F#min                             E
I've swallowed half an hourglass, So now the landscape is swollen up


A E F#Min (listen to song for strum pattern)

A                     E
Lets love death away, Lets love death away
F#Min                 E
Lets love death away, Lets love death away
A                     E
Lets love death away, Lets love death away
F#min                 E
Lets love death away, Lets love death away

Good tab man. Just one small alteration I would make to it after listening to the Live Lounge version. Think the bridge goes like this:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------5---9---10--12--10--9---7h9p7--------5---9---10--12--10--9----10/12/10---|
G|--6--7---------------------------------6--7-------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Good tab! very accurate
but in the outro i only play
C5
e|----
B|----
G|--5-
D|--5-
A|--3-
E|----

instead of the Cadd b9 because I play the A5 as Asus2, so the difference between the b and c of both chords creates enough suspense ;)

I guess he plays it like this in that video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A9OtiYF265Q

C7
e|----
B|--0-
G|--0-
D|--2-
