Notes*
 -Tacet = a musical term simply meaning MUTE
 -The outro is only how my band leaves the song
  and how i leave it when im playing alone in 
  front of others. The Rythem is hard to 
  explain for it E-mail me at MusicEAD@aol.com
  if you would like me to explain it more elaboratley
 -Phrase 2 is played through all verses and interludes
 -The Chorus is a bit messed up (i felt lazy this took
  long enough) but i put which beats each chords should
  be on.
 -If anyone has ANY recomendations for the bridge 
  please E-mail me MusicEAD@aol.com and i will
  edit it thank you.
 -For the intro the D and Dsus4 chords may also
  be played like so (again this is how i play them)

[Verse 1]
D                  G
He wakes up in the morning
D                       G
Does his teeth, bite to eat and he's rolling.
D                G
He never changes a thing
D                  G
The week ends, the week begins. She thinks,
D               G
We look at each other
D                  G
Wondering what the other is thinking
D                G
But we never say a thing
D                  G
And these crimes between us grow deeper.

Playing under the table and dreaming

D                  G
Driving in on this highway

All these cars end up on the sidewalk
D         (tacet)     G
People in every direc-tion
D        (tacet)       G     (tacet)
No words exchanged, no time to exchange them

[Bridge]
     G       G/F#   Em
When all the little ants are marching
G       G/F#    Em
Red and black antennas waving

They all do it the same
G        G/F#     Em     
They all do it the same way

[Verse 4]
D
Candyman tempting the thoughts of a

Sweet tooth, torturing the weight loss
D
Program cutting the corners 
     G
of a loose end, loose end, cut cut
D                            G
On the fence, not to of-fend cut cut, cut cut

Nice tab: One problem -- The chorus actually has a lot more going on - or at least does in the acoustic version:

Chorus:

Bm D G Bm A
Take these chances
Bm D G Bm A Bm D
Place them in a box until a quieter time
G Bm A
Lights down you up and die

This video shows it pretty clearly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kUpec0kwCfo
