This what i came up with from this really good youtube cover.
-----> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGrOiIH4zwY <----------

I play the C chord differently, idk know what it's called but it's the G shaped C 
haha... if that makes sense... if not whatever, play a normal C.

And for the D, i just play a normal D or sometimes i just play 2nd fret 5th string and 
2nd fret 3rd string, with the rest of the strings open.

SORRY IF IT'S A LITTLE CONFUSING! This is my first tab.. or chords, whatever.

G                                 Em        D
Someway, baby, it's part of me, apart from me.
        Em             C
you're laying waste to Halloween
   G                                         Em             D
you fucked it friend, it's on it's head, it struck the street
       Em             C
you're in Milwaukee, off your feet

         C                                     Em   D
and at once I knew I was not magnificent
C                                Em  D
strayed above the highway aisle
 C      Em        G           D
jagged vacance, thick with ice
                Em       C      D     G
I could see for miles, miles, miles

3rd and Lake it burnt away, the hallway
was where we learned to celebrate
automatic bought the years you’d talk for me
that night you played me ʻLip Paradeʼ
not the needle, nor the thread, the lost decree
saying nothing, that’s enough for me

...and at once I knew I was not magnificent
hulled far from the highway aisle
jagged, vacance, thick with ice
I could see for miles, miles, miles

Christmas night, it clutched the light, the hallow bright
above my brother, I and tangled spines
we smoked the screen to make it what it was to be
now to know it in my memory:

...and at once I knew I was not magnificent
high above the highway aisle
jagged vacance, thick with ice
I could see for miles, miles, miles

The "G shaped C" is a Cadd9. And as for the alternate D, it's something between a Dmaj7 and an A6.

Also the tuning for this song is E A D G B D

The way i understand this tab is that its aim is to simplify the way of playing this and make it easy to pick up for beginners also, not to transcript it 1 to 1. Standard tuning and basic cords. This beautiful song (Holocene & Towers might be my favourite double song combo.. like, at all lol) basically IS simple, still it's kinda tricky to get it done perfectly.
I'm sure many beginners and guitarsts with basic skills appreciate that.

Not even tabbed. Even if it were chord suggestions, it gives no direction.
