I absolutely adore this song. It's played in standard tuning with a capo across the top five strings (leaving
the bottom E open) making it a sort of drop-D tuning. The reason he does it like this rather than just
tuning the bottom E down is to make the fingering actually possible. When he plays it live, he does so with 
the capo across the second fret; the In The Throes version is actually half a step lower, so tuned down half
and then still capoed across the second fret. I've worked from this version:

CAPO II - TOP FIVE STRINGS ONLY [E B E A Db Gb] 

No idea what the actual chord names are so I'm just going with approximations. I've made this look complicated
but it really is actually very deceptively simple once you nail the picking pattern. He actually plays
alternating bass strings with his thumb throughout the entire song, so if you want a note-perfect rendition, 
that's how to do it. I think it makes it easier and less rushed without doing that though, so I've not added 
those into the tab (apart from in the chorus, where I think it's necessary). Experiment with it though and see
how you feel. 

All chords are relative to the capo as if it was across all six strings.

Lyrics:

I’ve been living with a curse 
Combing through the pages of my youth 
There’s a million soggy miles 
Soaking through the soles of my shoes 

And I’ve been staying up all night 
I don’t give a damn to sleep anymore 
My eyelids are heavy 
But my dreams don’t sing like before 

And I apologise a thousand times for holding up the show 
I always had the words, but they don’t quite know where to go 
You said give me one good reason, now give me 20 more 
Don’t give yourself away to settle someone else’s score 

I got the guiltiest conscience 
Listening for a saviour on a Saturday night 
I got my ear to the ground 
You got Easter Sunday in your eyes 

And I apologise if I seem a little overwhelmed 
I’m thirsty, but the holy keep on pissing in my well 
I had a purpose and a song that was true 
But I ain’t ever had a lick of sense when it comes to you 

So try to be patient, try to understand 
I’m a child, trying to do the work of a man 
My pockets are empty, I don’t own a thing 
But I’d take a diamond from the sky and put it in your ring
