[Verse 1]
Dm            C                Bb
Just down the street from your hotel, baby
Dm        C            Bb
I stay at home with my disease
Dm             C          Bb
And ain't this position familiar, darling
Dm                C            Bb
Well, all monkeys do what they see
Gm                        Bb
Help me stay awake, I'm falling...

[Verse 2]
Down on Virginia and La Loma
Where I got friends who'll care for me
You got an attitude of everything I ever wanted
I got an attitude of need
Help me stay awake, I'm falling...

[Chorus]
    F         C            Bb
    Asleep in perfect blue buildings
    F          C           Bb
    Beside the green apple sea
    F              C       Bb
    Gonna get me a little oblivion, baby
    F             C     Bb        1.| Dm**   2.|              F
    Try to keep myself away from    | me       | (myself and) me
                                    |          |
[Verse 3]
It's 4:30 A.M. on a Tuesday
It doesn't get much worse than this
In beds in little rooms in buildings in the middle
of these lives which are completely meaningless
Help me stay awake, I'm falling...

[Chorus]
    F         C            Bb
    Asleep in perfect blue buildings
    F          C           Bb
    Beside the green apple sea
    F              C       Bb
    Gonna get me a little oblivion, baby
    F             C     Bb        1.| Dm**   2.|              F
    Try to keep myself away from    | me       | (myself and) me
                                    |          |
[Verse 4]
I got bones beneath my skin, and mister...
There's a skeleton in every man's house
Beneath the dust and love and sweat that hangs on everybody
There's a dead man trying to get out
Please help me stay awake, I'm falling...

[Chorus]
    F         C            Bb
    Asleep in perfect blue buildings
    F          C           Bb
    Beside the green apple sea
    F              C       Bb
    Gonna get me a little oblivion, baby
    F             C     Bb        1.| Dm**   2.|              F
    Try to keep myself away from    | me       | (myself and) me
                                    |          |

This is a pretty easy yet very cool tune and your tab is great as well :)

Well done, but I would change the Bb in the chorus to Gm - makes it more dramatic..

I agree with pontiac, the Bb in the chorus should be a Gm. I think it's missing a few chords here and there in the verses, but otherwise pretty good.
