Here's the intro as best that I can translate it into tab.  This is my first tab, so 
sorry if it's a little confusing!

The verses are just straight chords.  I play them as three-note power chords because I 
don't know any other way, but nonetheless here they are.

E                            F#             G#
And only time will tell, tell us nothing.

A                     E
Or maybe we already know.

E                                   F#          G#
So many days to fill, trying to feel nothing.

G#            A            E
More than a slow ebb and flow.


[Bridge]
E                          C#           G#              F#
But drag me out into the street if you hear the news coming.

C#              G#                         F#
Now mothers and fathers teach their children.

              C#               G#            F#
It doesn't matter if blood's thicker than water,

          A
If it's on your hands.


Riff into the Chorus/Breakdown thing goes:
E|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|-------4p2-----------|
D|--2h4-------4-2-0-2--|
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|

Chorus/Breakdown thing:
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------5/7\5--5\2--2/5-5-5-5--------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------2~--------4p2--------------|
D|--2222----------------------------4444---2~---2h4-------4-2-0-2-----|
A|--2222----------------------------4444---0~-------------------------|
E|--0000----------------------------2222------------------------------|


Goes back into the verse on an E.

When the chorus/breakdown goes into the slow part it does the A riff into an A:
E|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|-------4p2-----------2~---|
D|--2h4-------4-2-0-2--2~---|
A|---------------------0~---|
E|--------------------------|

Followed by the A riff into the slow part:
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------4p2------------------------------------------------------|
D|--2h4-------4-2-0-2---2~---6~--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-4~-----------------|
A|----------------------2~---6~--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-4~-----------------|
E|----------------------0~---4~--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-2~-----------------|

Not gonna tab out the whole slow part.  You can get it from there and how the chords 
line up with the lyrics.

There are obviously some complementing guitar parts in there, but they're just little 
harmonies and fills here and there.  If you want to figure those out, more power to you!

I hope you enjoyed my first ever guitar tab.  Thanks for checking it out!
