  Verse 1
  I've been asleep for a long, long time
  Blond hair to brown and brown to white
  My mom is buried beside my dad (?)
  But I was asleep for all of that

  Verse 2
  The schools that I went to have all been closed
  And all of my teachers are dead I suppose
  The songs that we sung have all gone quiet
  What happens below as you sleep at night?

Chorus (chords relative to capo)

  em    G      C
  I shut my eyes for a moment's rest
  em    G      C  (etc...)
  'cause I get so tired
  What things transpired while my body slipped
  Beset my mind (?)

Interlude

Just fiddle around with picking the chorus chords for a few bars and then 
sing to the same chords.

  em            G      C  (etc...)
  The river's up, the reeds are cut
  Halfway across what never was
  The water rose and swept in slow
  When the reeds awoke they were half below

After that it's the same chords while the string section works their magic, 
followed by a harder rocking part again over the same basic chords. Feel 
free to improv all you want as I have no idea how to tab it.

Structure:
Intro
Verse 1
Chorus
Verse 2
Chorus
Interlude
Verse 1 (2x)
Verse riff as outro

This song is pretty much all about the timing, so you'll have to play it a 
few times to really get it. Near the end when they repeat the first verse 
they only play the very first part once as opposed the usual twice... but 
that's hard to explain unless you listen to it and notice it. That may only 
happen in the performance in the video from the ECMA's as well, I'm not
really sure. Also, I'm not too sure about some of the lyrics but those are 
the closest words my ears could decipher so you'll just have to go with it 
unless you know otherwise. Lastly, I left out some of Hogan's guitar parts 
because I'm not good enough to tab them, go nuts figuring those out 
yourself.

I play a C/G instead of C in the chorus, it sounds a bit more accurate to me. Overall, great tab.
