    D              D/Db  D/B   D/Bb
The moonies are up       on a mountain.
                  D          D/Db D/B D/Bb
The lunatics have taken over     the asylum.
               D   D/Db D/B D/Bb
Waiting on the raaaaaaapture.

        D     D/Db D/B D/Bb
Singing we're here;
                     D   D/Db D/B D/Bb
To keep your prices down.
                      D     D/Db D/B D/Bb
We'll feed you to the hounds.
             D      D/Db
To the Daily Mail,
   C   C(add9)  Bm         C   Dbmaj7
To get up,   together.
You made a pig's ear.
Db(add9)        F7   C(#9) Db(add9) 
You made a mistake.
Paid off security,
    Db(add9)        F7     C(#9) Db(add9)
and got through the gate.
You got away with it,
       Db(add9)       C
but we lie in wait.

C  Eb6 D7 F F#(b5)
C  Eb6 D7 F F#(b5)

Where's the truth?
What's the use?
    Eb6         D7
In hanging round,
Lost and found.
    F#(b5)         C
And with your head
In the sand.
    Eb6    D7
Fat chance,
No plan.
F#(b5)    C
No     regard for human life.
       Eb6     D7
You'll keep time.
You've no right.
You're fast to lose.
You're willing to lose.
   Eb6           D7
To jump the queue.
Go back again,
   For life.
Lord of all
D7                  F
   The flies in the sky,
The beasts of the Earth,
  The fish in the sea,
     Eb6       Bb   Db6 C7 Eb E(b5)
Have lost command.

This is a great tab; however, I'm having a hard time playing because I don't know the chords you've listed above. Can someone tell me how to play C#9, C#add9,F#b5, & Eb5. Those last two confuse me because (b) usually means flat & F# played a step more flat is F. Someone please help me out. Also does anyone know an easier way to play C#maj7 & Eb6?

The trouble I have is how do I do the transition for the D chords?

@lucho009: Since it's orginally for piano, it's kind of hard to play it on guitar, but my suggestion is to play the D chord from the fifth fret of the A string and then slide your index finger to the fourth fret, and then, releasing your index finger, place your thumb on the seventh fret of the low E and then finally slide it down to the sixth fret (alternatively you can do this with your index finger, but I find using my thumb a lot easier.

C(#9) is played as three notes: C (third fret A string) E (second fret D string) Eb (fourth fret B string).
C#add9 is played in two ways during the song:
1. After C(#9). Same way as C(#9), but on other frets of course: C# (fourth fret A string) F (third fret D string) Eb (fourth fret B string).
2. As a chord after Eb:

F#(b5) means a major F# chord with a flat fifth.
Play it like this:

Same goes for E(b5).

C#maj7 is played in a style similiar to C(#9) and C#add9, with three notes: C# (fourth fret A string) F (third fret D string) C (first fret B string)
The C before it is also played this way: C (third fret A string) E ( second fret D string) C (first fret B string)
You can hear it in the song.

Eb6 is played like this:

Same goes for C#6:

I hope this helped you.
