The only version of this awesome bloc party song that i've found isn't
complete and isn't very accurate in my opinion.  Here's my version. 

Make sure that you are listening to the song when your trying to play
it so that you get all the rythyms and such down.

Good luck

B|---------------1010--88--6--5------|
G|--10h11--8--6----------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------|(4x)


there is some really high stuff that is played now, i can't figure it out, 
it's 4 measures long and has the same melody as the chorus but is reaaal high.  
You can get away with playing the regular chorus or figure it out yourself.




"i'm just a skeleton...i'm just a skeleton."

e|-----6---6---6--7--6---------------|
B|---7---7---7-----------------------| 
G|-----------------------------------|  
D|-----------------------------------|  
A|-----------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------|


END



Hope you guys like it, if anything is messed up, tell me and i'll edit it.

hey guys, i think i screwed up the chorus a bit.

i think that

e|-----------------------------------|
B|---------------1111--99--7--6------|
G|--10h11--8--6----------------------|
D|-----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------|

sounds better...but i don't know how to edit the post.

it is all one step too high, maybe your guitar is tuned Eb . but it all is too high

your missing a LOT of the subtitles. I mean, you don't even have the transition riff from the verse to the chorus. Pretty lazy tabbing imho.
