First Break

The only chord for this part is A. The guitar part is hard to hear so this is the synth part:

e|-5-4-2-0-|---------|---------|---------|
B|---------|-4-2-0---|---------|---------|
G|---------|-------2-|-1---1-2-|-1---1-2-|
D|---------|---------|---4-----|---4-----|
A|---------|---------|---------|---------|
E|---------|---------|---------|---------|

Back to the verse

Second Break

The only chord for this part is C#m and the lead bit plays this:

e|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|
G|-------------------------| repeat lots
D|-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-|
A|-------------------------|
E|-------------------------|

Then, just before the verse the guitar part decends as follows

e|-----------|
B|-----------|
G|-----------|
D|-----------|
A|-11-10-9-7-| be careful - the timings a bit odd
E|-----------|

Return to verse, then, after repeating the second break, play the outro

e|---------------------|                 |-------------|
B|---------------------|                 |-------------|
G|---------------------|                 |-------------|
D|-11p9-11p9-----------|                 |-----9-----9-|
A|-----------11-10-9-7-| play twice then |-7h9---7h9---|
E|---------------------|                 |-------------|

Then play the first bar again and repeat all four bars

Great song, thought it would be worth tabbing out, and since theres no lyrics on the web 
they’re written below - as best as I can hear.
Some bit arent quite right (both lyrics and tab) but itll do - if anyone works out 
better, just post it yourself :D

Wake up straight
Caught out by the sun
On the first day of April
Out of bed
Lord, it was a plane crash
But Im sure that I was dreaming
TV on
Off blast caffeine,  a science
Of submission again
Another day
On this little Island
Just about hangs on

Porridge done
I take my kid to school
Past the pound shop, Woolworths
Under bridge
Where the subway sees the daytime
And the west way flies by
Then on my bike
Down the Ladbroke Grove
To the forthcoming dramas
A studio
And a love of all sweet music
We just cant let go…

So meditate
On what weve all become
On a cold day in springtime
Civil War
Is what we all were born into
Raise your left hand, right sing
Dont capitulate
The forces of the market place
Theyre long departed
Consolidate
The love we bear together
On a cold day in springtime

Great tab, I would only say that personally I'm unconvinced by the outro bit - it sounds better as:

e|-------------------------| |-------------|
B|-------------------------| |-------------|
G|-------------------------| |-------------|
D|-9h11p9-11p9-------------| |-----9-----9-|
A|-------------11-10-9-7---| play twice then |-7h9---7h9---|
E|-----------------------9-| |-------------|

Tho the last '9' in the first part is only occasional to my ear, the trill is quite common. Lol, the more I listen the more I reckon my additions are just the 'noodly' bits, but I like to have them in too, when I can :)

Cheers :)
