Everyone you meet rubs you the wrong way

Dirty city streets smell like an ashtray

Morning bells are ringing in your ear

Is your brother on a church kick
D D         D2 D2  D4 D     D2       G (G5)
Seems like just a different kind of dopesick
                              D2   D
Better off to teach a dog a card trick
 D   D      D2 D2  D4    D   D2       G        A   
Than try to have a point and make it clear

You should know, compared to people on a global scale
    Em                F#m      G       A
Our kind has had it relatively easy

And here with you there's always something to look forward to

My angry heart beats relatively easy

I lost a good friend,
     D D   D2 D2       D4    D  D2       G (G5)
At Christmastime when folks go off the deep end
                                    D2  D
His woman took the kids and he took Klonopin
D D    D2  D2     D4  D  D2        G 
Enough to kill a man of twice his size
 
         A      Bm
Not for me to understand
                           A     G
Remember him when he was still a proud man
                                A    Bm
A vandal's smile, a baseball in his right hand
                          A      G       A
Nothing but the blue sky in his eyes

Bm         A                G           F#m
Still, compared to those a stones-throw away from you,
    Em              F#m              G     A
Our lives have both been relatively easy
Bm      A               G                  F#m
Take a year and make a break there ain't that much at stake
   Em                   F#m      G
The answers could be relatively easy

D2 D  D D D2 D2 D4 D D2 G
D2 D  D D D2 D2 D4 D D2 G  F#m

Em               F#m   G
Watch that lucky man walk to work again
    D                                  A (Asus4)
He may not have a friend left in the world
Em               F#m   G
See him walking home again to sleep alone
    D                           A              (Asus4)
I step into a shop to buy a postcard for a girl

            D2    D
I broke the law boys,
D D      D2  D2  D4   D  D2          G (G5)
shooting out the windows of my loft, boys
                                  D2   D
When they picked me up, I made a big noise
D D  D2 D2    D4    D D2       G (G2)     A
Everything to blame except my mind

Bm        A               G              F#m
I should say, I keep your picture with me every day
    Em               F#m         G     A
The evenings now are relatively easy
Bm             A                 G                  F#m
And here with you there's always something to look forward to
    Em                   F#m      G
My lonely heart beats relatively easy
    Em                   F#m      G         G
My lonely heart beats relatively easy

I originally wrote the chords for this song in standard tuning. After watching a couple YouTube videos of Jason playing this song live, I realized he plays it in drop D tuning. If you don't want to retune your guitar, you can just play it in standard tuning, using the same chords above. Enjoy!

I would play the G2 chord as 540030 (easier finger and also what he appears to do live).
