There's more in the outro part, 
but i can't really hear all of it that well.

Here's the lyrics! :D

I'm on a high, on a high.
There's nothing more to it.
You're the sea and the sky 
and the blue that runs through it, yea.

And there are some who say
there are so many things I need.
So I run or I fight
and I crawl or I scream.
And I bleed, and I bleed, and I bleed.

It's a lie, it's a lie.
Don't you believe it.
If you're fine, then you're fine.
It's all how you see it.
Oh, there never will be
no conspiracy of happiness.

I'm on a high, on a high.
There's nothing more to it.
I have the sun, it's a star.
Why should I refuse it?

And there are so many reasons
I could give you
why I should be down.
There's not enough money or time
and, my love, you're not around, around, around.

It's a lie, it's a lie.
Don't you believe it.
If you're fine, then you're fine.
It's all you see it.
Oh, there never will be 
no conspiracy of happiness.

You're alive, you're alive.
How else could you hear me?
You are fine, you are fine.
Nothing worth fearing.
Oh, there never will be 
no conspiracy of happiness.

I'm on a high, on a high.
You are the sea and the sky.
I'm on a high, on a high.
I'm on a high.

It's a lie, it's a lie.
Don't you believe it.
'Cause I've tried, and I've tried.
Can't really see it.
Now I'm trapped inside 
my conspiracy of happiness.

Said I was yours,
you were mine,
but I didn't really mean it.
And I lied, and I lied.
Wish you hadn't seen it.
Now I'm trapped inside
my conspiracy of happiness.

I think you need to remove one of the following 44/66es from the intro/verse so that there's only three

e|-----------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------|
G|---66----66----66----66------------|
D|---66----66----66----66------------| 6x
A|-44----44----44----44-----7-6---6--|
E|------------------------------9----|

Also, i would change the 9 above to a 4 on the A string. it's much easier and you don't need to slide your hand down the fretboard because your index finger is already at 4 on A ;)
