As the other chords' version might sound fine but is completely different to what Rachel 
plays, here is the one given me by a good man who managed to figure it out. It sounds 
really good and fairly close to the original to me.

Here are the (few) chords played:
Fm = x24432
Fm/Eb = x04432
Fm/Db = 3x4432
Em = x13321
Fm/C = 2x4432
C9 = 212020
C7/Bb = x7897x
C7/Bb (Bb down octave) = 078970
Ebsus2sus4 = x02430
Db = 355433
C = 24432
Db6 = 355400
Bbm = 022000
Eb = 577655
G = x4666x

Put a capo on the 6th fret and follow this basic picking (Fm example):
E|---------------|
B|----3-3----3-3-|
G|----4-4----4-4-|
D|---------------|
A|-2-2----2-2----|
E|---------------|

I hope it is clear enough... yes I know that the names of the chords are not related to 
the capo (forgive me), but the fingering is.
Shall we begin then?

INTRO (PICKED):
Fm Fm/Eb Fm/Db Fm Em
Fm Fm/C Fm/Db Fm/Bb C9

VERSE (PICKED):
Fm                   Fm/Eb            Fm/Db               Fm
Deep deep down under mountains I have heard them call my name
       Em
Will I play their little game and tell them
Fm                       Fm/Eb           Fm/Db       Fm
Deep deep down I've been waiting for the fighting to begin
C7/Bb
Hold my hands on
Fm                    Fm/Eb             Fm/Db        Fm
Deep sleep now, under skies of pressing dark upon my dress
Em                                        Fm
Watch it turn from white to red under the bone clean moon
     Fm/Eb            Fm/Db           Fm
I am clinging to this burning shaking bed
C7/Bb
Must I hold my hands up
C7/Bb (Bb down octave)
My bloody hands up

CHORUS (STRUM!):
Fm Ebsus2sus4 Bb
Fm C Db6

Fm            Ebsus2sus4 Bb
Mercy, mercy, I've been caught
Fm            Em
Lying with my darkest thought
Bbm          Eb               G      Fm   C 
 Db6
They grab my wings and pin me to the wall
Fm                     Ebsus2sus4 Bb
Oh light please try to hold your ground
Fm                  Em
Lift me up before I drown
    Bbm                  Eb
The din creeps 'neath my skin
            G                Fm
And I can't hear no Goodness speak

INTRO (PICKED):
Fm Fm/Eb Fm/Db Fm Em
Fm Fm/C Fm/Db Fm/Bb C9

VERSE (PICKED):
         Fm
From the neighbouring town
          Fm/Eb            Fm/Db         Fm
There's a boy who comes to sing upon our street
  Em                                 Fm
I watch him from the window thinking deep deep down
        Fm/Eb        Fm/Db         Fm
He'd be richer if he just became a thief
           C7/Bb
Instead he holds his hands out
Fm                 Fm/Eb
I walk down to the river
          Fm/Db         Fm
Stand and shiver in the wind
      Em                                  Fm
Throw stones to watch them sinking to the icy blue
       Fm/Eb         Fm/Db  Fm
Let it rise above my ankles
        C7/Bb
I don't want this darkness
C7/Bb (Bb down octave)          Fm  C Db6
But the sun just falls from the sky

CHORUS (SSSSTRUM!)
CHORUS (PALM MUTE, STRRRRUM!)
INTRO (PICKED)

If anything I wrote is wrong it is because it is 2:38 in the morning... and if it is 
right instead, then thank that good man, as I already said.
Have fun spending - at least - one week learning how to play this song.
I shall soon be writing the tab to Sleep aswell.
Good night for now!

Whoever gave this tab one star obviously isn't playing this tab correctly, because it sounds great. 5 stars. Thank you very much for sharing this little gem with us!

Good tab. For those confused, you can make the blue chords fit the diagrams given at the top by transposing the whole thing up to Bm (+6).

Also, I would suggest Edim7 (x1202x) for the chord listed as Em. When strummed you can play it as 012020.
