This band is underrated and no one seems to tab them.. so i thought i'd contribute. (: 
is my first tab so be nice. but i'm pretty sure this is at least 90% correct.

corrections and suggestions are welcomed.
Enjoy!

Intro:
E G#m F# B E G#m F#

Verse 1:
             B
Shaking my teeth loose on your table
                   E
The dullest white squares I'll never be
                 B
Now that you've picked each one apart you can't
       E
look at me
                       G#m
I'll probably lose you now
                         F#
But at least the ones I have still sparkle

Refrain:
B(hold)

Chorus:
E
Putting on your makeup everyday before he wakes up
             G#m
So he could stomach your face now easier than he

          F#
could without

Yeah this is love

This is all that you could want
B (hold)
Open equals heavier
E
Hold your hand out palm side up

Open, empty, light enough
G#m
Minutes all turn to months

This is one thing we have all learned
F#
Equations always make up a sum

But it doesn't add up

Verse 2:
(Repeat Verse 1 chords)
Signing up for that second semester
Because you won't marry me without the degree
Once I fix things up right you wont be so

embarrassed of me
But I'll never make it now
But at least looking in the mirror wont feel like

lying

Refrain:
E
Posing for your still visions

Acedemic postcard prisons
B
Raise your chin, love

E
Purged a poem I swore was finished

Heaping lines half chewed unconscious

B
Settle on a plot, chalk another loss

Stage set for

Chorus:
E
Breathing and choking on swallowed conversations

Clutching and crawling for constant validation
G#m
Still nailed in the ruins of corporate
co-dependence

Still stuck on the thought that you're the one

exception
F#
All the while the same

B
I'm worried that the purpose is
E
How I look, not how I lived
Let's get dolled up and play pretend
G#m
Cause nothing stays honest when
Every thought is cursed with intent
F#
A pulse covered in skin and words covered in lips

B
The taste of regret as it leaves your stomach
E
Coating your tongue with every noun
B                                             E
Watery eyes the only thing that makes sense now
                       G#m
Spitting your insides out


Start over
        F#
Start over

Start over
Start over
Start over

End on B.

There you go. (:

They play this song in E-flat tuning - you can tell because then you get nice open chords like G, C, Am... Otherwise great tab though!
