The tab sounds good, I think, but only represents the basic pattern of 
course. The Rhodes on the original recording adds variations here and there 
which are difficult to reproduce exactly on a guitar. Suggestions are 
highly welcome!

Bb/D
 Out of woman come the man

Spend the rest of his life getting back where he can
Bb/D
 As a bow, so a dove
Ebsus2
 As below, so above
Gsus4/D
 From the black hole
Fadd9
 Come the tadpole
C/E
 With the dark soul, in coal she burn


    Bb/D
She burn as I drove into the sun
Ebsus2
Didn't dare look where I had begun
Bb/D 
Lost among echoes of things not there
Ebsus2
Watching the sound forming shapes in the air
Gsus4/D
 From the white star
Fadd9
 Come the bright car
C/E                         F#
 Our amoeba my little liebe schön
