First tab. Pretty simple, awesome song. Thinking of playing it for my Berklee 
audition, if I don't do "Left of the Dial". Be sure to pay attention to the song 
for rhythms, especially on the verses.

Time for decisions to be made
Bm               A    Bm             E
Crack up in the sun, lose it in the shade


D                                A
Razzle, dazzle, drazzle, drone, time for this one to come home

Razzle, dazzle, drazzle, die, time for this one to come alive
       D  Cm Bm  A
and hold my life 
D  Cm  Bm    A
until I'm ready to use it
D    Cm  Bm    (riff, see below) 
Hold my life because I just might lose it
(riff)
Because I just might lose it

in the chorus where you mark the chords, D - CM - BM - A, I use a D chord too, but I only use the roots for certain chords, and I think one of those roots is a C# not a C...

D - D/C#(root) - D/B(root) - A
Un---til---------I'm---------ready to use it...
