Hello everyone! I didn't find any decent tab of this song so I decided to do my first guitar chords/tab ever. 
Hope you find it useful! 

I leave you all the chords played during the song in two positions.

the way I play it:

e|---2-----------------2----------4-----------5----3--| 
B|---2-----5-----7-----3-----9----5-----7-----5----3--| 
G|---2-----7-----6-----2-----9----4-----6-----6----4--|
D|---2-----6-----7-----4-----9----6-----7-----7----5--|
A|---4-----7-----5-----2-----7----4-----5-----7----5--|
E|---2-----0----------------------------------5----3--|
    F#m7  E7   DMaj7  Bm7    E  C#m7   DMaj7  A    G

easier chords:

[Intro]
Not important but just in case you want to know it. Just before they start singing. 
Listen the song for tempo and strumming, it's easy.

F#m (let it ring...)              
What you mean, what you mean?
                 
What you mean, man, what you mean?
F#m                 
What you mean, yeah, what you see?
                  
What you see, yeah, oh yeah 
(No guitar)
Well I need a little something to pull my head off
                             
Need a little something to pull my head off, 

(yeah need a little something... 

[Verse 1]
...Because I've been running) 

F#m 
from the truth, will never lose
                                      
Lies come from loose teeth, tied to the noose
                F#m                     
Climbing up my own tree hoping it can hold
                                                      
All the things I've seen but I've chosen to ignore
   Dmaj7                              
Mmmm... Well, I said, well I believe I've been well fed, yeah
          
(But the wolf's not dead)

[Chorus]

Got to pay the man, Run as fast as you can

[Verse 2]
F#m7                
Call out to God, praise to the Most High

Call out for help cause I'm playing with fire
F#m7
Call out to mountains till my voice goes faint

Echoes through time that goes back with new strength

[Interlude]
Dmaj7
And when it's raining, 2e're sailing Oh yeah, we're sailing, 
Dmaj7
We're sailing (I'm off the leash, I go to war for peace)

[Verse 3]
F#m7
Must've been touching everything that I can

I've got blood on my hands, guess I'm going deaf with 
F#m7
the cry of this sin please forgive me I don't understand

We all believe we've been well fed, yeah

The deaf man heard what the mute man said

Then they all followed where the blind man led

Was laughing real hard but my teeth fell out
G
Need a little something, yeah
A
Need a little something

[Solo]
Listen to it for tempo. It keeps going until the end of the song 
I turned it down one octave so it can be played easily on a guitar. Also,
although these are the correct notes, I believe they are almost sliding all the notes.
 

e|----------11/12-|9--9-12-9----|--------9------|--------9-|----------|------------|-----------------|--|
B|----------------|----------10-|-/12--12-12-10-|-12-------|----------|------10/12-|-10---10-12-10-9-|--|

(You said)Just keep it true, Lift up your name

Seasons change, You know it'll never be the same,
              Bm7 
We'll see the sun again, 
              E  
Before it fades,

Dmaj7
And can't see me, can't see me
Bm7                             E 
We all run when the light comes on
               C#m7                      
Am I wrong, for wanting it all?
            Dmaj7
But I warned you
