[Verse 1]

A                    E6                               Dmaj7
I was dressed for succes,        but success it never comes
                         A                                     E6
And I'm the only one who laughs, at your jokes when they are so bad
                         Dmaj7                             A
And you jokes are always bad,    but they're not as bad as this.

[Chorus]
                  E6                                       Dmaj7
Come join us in a prayer,        we'll be waiting, waiting where
                    A
Everything's ending here.

[Post chorus 1]
    D                             E                             A
And all the sterile striking it depends an empty dock you cast away
    D                                E                                A
And rain upon you forehead where the mist's for hire if it's just too clear
     D              E                    A
Lets spend out last quarter stance randomly
   D           E           A
Go down to the outlet once again

[Verse 2]
                               E6                                  Dmaj7
Paved portraits of minions and slaves, crotch mavens and one night plays
                               A                                     E6
Are they the only ones who laugh?      At the jokes when they are so bad
                         Dmaj7                                   A
And the jokes are always bad,          but they're not as bad as this.

[Chorus]
                  E6                                       Dmaj7
Come join us in a prayer,        we'll be waiting, waiting where
                    A
Everything's ending here.

[Post chorus 2]
    D                              E                 A
And all the spanish candles unsold have gone away to this
       D                                  E                         A
And a "Run on piece of mount on" trembles shivers runs down the freeway
  D                   E                  A
I guess she spent her last quarter randomly
  D       E                       G           E
I guess a guess is the best I'll  do

[Outro]
D     E     A    A    (several times)
D     E     G    E    (last time)

Alternate tuning tab

I played around with alternate tunings and came up with this which
sounds pretty good to me.  It's a slack tuning, meaning strings are
lowered in pitch by slackening the tension.  You tune the strings (low
to high) to: D-A-D-G-A-C#.  You can do this by tuning the 1st string
(the high e) down until it matches the sound of the 2nd string played
on the 2nd fret (C#).  Then tune the 2nd string down until it matches
the sound of the 3rd string played on the 2nd fret.  Finally, tune the
6th string down two semi-tones to D.  You can tune it so that it
sounds an octive lower than the 4th string.  If you're not good at
hearing octives, tune it so the 6th string played on the 12th fret
matches the 4th string.  The 3rd, 4th, and 5th strings are not
altered.
