Capo
2nd fret
Put the capo on 2nd fret and go from there.  If you want to simplify the chord 
diagram, just use the base chords shown(without /extensions, which I think sounds good too).


[Intro]

(C4/7  Cm7  Eb/Bb  G#) (x4)
 

[Verse 1]

Cm             Bb6        G# 
When the night shows and signals grow on radios 
Cm              Bb6          G# 
All the strange things that come and go as early warnings 
Bb                 Gm7    G#   
Stranded starfish have no place to hide 
      G#        F/A   Bb       G/B   Cm 
Still waiting  for the swollen Easter tide 
       Cm7/Bb                   F/A  Fm/G# G#              Eb 
Theres no point in direction, we cannot even  choose a side 


[Verse 2]

Cm             Bb6         G# 
I took the old track, the hollow shoulder, across the water, 
Cm                Bb6          G# 
On the tall cliffs, they were getting older, sons and daughters, 
Bb              Gm7      G#    
The jaded underworld was riding high, 
    G#         F/A       Bb     G/B    Cm 
And waves of steel hurled metal at the sky, 
    Cm7/Bb                             F/A    Fm/G#    G#         Eb 
And as the nails sunk in the cloud, The rain was warm and soaked the crowd. 


[Chorus]

Eb         Bb/D             Cm 
Lord, here comes the flood 
Bb            G/B                Cm 
We'll say goodbye,  to flesh and blood 
    G/B                        Cm 
If again the seas are silent in any still alive 
G/B     G/A     G         G/F  G# 
It'll be those who gave their island to survive 
      G#m Bbm B        C#          Eb 
Drink up,   dreamers,  you're running dry 


[Verse 3]

Cm             Bb6         G# 
When the flood calls, you have no home, you have no walls, 
Cm                Bb6          G# 
In the thundercrash, you're a thousand minds within a flash, 
Bb                  Gm7    G#  
Don't be afraid to cry at what you see, 
    G#       F/A         Bb    G/B    Cm 
The actor's gone, there's only you and me, 
    Cm7/Bb                              F/A  Fm/G#   G#     Eb 
And if we break before the dawn, they'll use up what we used to be. 


[Chorus]

Eb         Bb/D             Cm 
Lord, here comes the flood 
Bb            G/B               Cm 
We'll say goodbye, to flesh and blood 
   G/B                         Cm 
If again the seas are silent in any still alive 
G/C     Ab]/Bb     Ab         Ab]/F#  A] 
It'll be those who gave their island to survive 
      G#m Bbm B        C#          Eb 
Drink up,   dreamers,  you're running dry

I think it's actually in c# minor, so it would be capo 1 with these chords, although i'm only familiar with the robert fripp version

In the verses, I think your G major chord should be an A major.
