Capo
3rd fret
The other tab for this song has it as capo 3, but to actually play the whole song, it 
be on capo 1.

Tuning: Standard

Capo 1
all chords relative to capo

Chords used in song:

 A      Dmaj7   E    f#min    D
---     -0-    -0-   -2-     -0-|
-2-     -2-    -0-   -2-     -3-|
-2-     -2-    -1-   -2-     -2-|
-2-     -0-    -2-   -4-     -0-|
-0-     ---    -2-   -4-     ---|
---     ---    -0-   -2-     ---|

(Note, I don't actually know if that is a Dmaj7, but when I refer to it in the tab, this 
the form I am referring to.)

Verses: Same pattern for each verse
Strummed

I like to strum the chords while adding little hammer ons and pull offs on the b string, 
the intro is, but that's just how I play it.


 A
I saw your father in the hall
 A           E
His ghost is living in the walls
 Dmaj7
I heard him crying while you slept
 Dmaj7       E
I heard him breaking things after you left

 A
I watched you crawl into my bed
 A          E
With curses spilling from your head
 Dmaj7
You said "We're just the walking dead"
 Dmaj7          E
So I pulled the trigger and we floated off


Chorus:

 A                     E
Into the air, Into the air
Dmaj7                  E
Into the air, Into the air
 A                          E
Up in the air, We're in the air
Dmaj7                    E
Up in the air, Up in the air

Solo
this is played right after the chorus

This is the pump organ part played under the solo transcribed from the guitar. It's not 
but sounds nice if you have two guitars.
(This can be played up or down an octave)

Bridge:

F#min   E     D    A
I     sank   into  the  sea
F#min   E     D    A
Wrapped    in   piano   strings
F#min   E     D    A
Few    words   could  open  me
F#min   E        D
But   you   knew  them  all


Song Order

(Intro x2)

(Verse)
I saw your father in the hall
His ghost is living in the walls
I heard him crying while you slept
I heard him breaking things after you left

I watched you crawl into my bed
With curses spilling from your head
You said "We're just the walking dead"
So I pulled the trigger and we floated off

(Chorus)

Into the air, Into the air
Into the air, Into the air
Up in the air, We're in the air
Up in the air, Up in the air

(Solo)


(Verse)
I used to worry about the time
That I lost my teeth along the line
So I carved the apple from my eye
And gave it to you before I went away

Blood ran into the kitchen sink
Your hand and lives are running pink
I sat and watched you as your ring
Slipped off and rolled across the kitchen floor

(This part is still the verse chords, but the strumming pattern changes)

They cut your eyes wide open
And pour into your precious head
My reach don't go that far dear
But please oh please don't let them in


(Bridge)
I sank into the sea
Wrapped in piano strings
Few words could open me
But you knew them all


(Verse)
Now I just sleep beneath your floor
My ghost just tries to keep you warm
I've seen the end, I've lost the war
One day you're 20 years just like the rain


(Chorus)
I hear the engines
They're roaring in our mouths
The smell of creatures
Are falling tooth and nail to get out


I see the airplanes
They're pouring from the chest
They fill the air
And burn and bury just like the rest

(Chorus till end)

End on A

So listening to the video this would be a little closer to the actual solo:
