Intro tab: ((it's not 100% accurate, but it's close, feel free to make a suggestion/ correction))
D|----0000-----0000-----0000--------| Repeat as necessary

           E4                            A4
|Verse I|: Sometimes I think about who I should believe
The people who are dead or the people who are free
E4                              A4
Sometimes I hear them as they whisper to me
I try to stay awake so I won't die in my sleep
E4                        A4
And I was quick to take a second look through
The window on the door of the operating room
       E4              A4
And the adrenaline, it threw my eyes
To the table on the floor where the patients lie
E4                   A4
I saw his face and I could not speak
As the anesthetic kissed his cheek
          E4                        A4
I felt my lips go cold and my limbs go weak
            D2                                           E4
Because the body on the table where the patients die was me (repeat intro tab here if you wish)
E4         A4    D2
It was me 

          E4              A4        D2
|Chorus|: Give me back my oxygen mask
                      E4                 A4          D2
Cause I don't want to feel the walls of my heart collapse
                E4             A4          D2
So put me under I would sooner die on this table
               E4           A4        D2
Than face what causes me to be so unstable

            E4                      A4
|Verse II|: There was a lie between my demons and me
And a body made of paper in the passenger seat
     E4                    A4
As I open my eyes, I could not see
I felt the stitches come loose and the blood run free
E4                       A4
And as my thoughts began to shake
I felt the hand of the darkness kiss my face
             E4                   A4
And then the devil woke up and he grabbed my throat
He pulled me down to the place where the silence grows
E4                  A4
He looks at me with hollow eyes
And he whispered my name as the flowers died
          E4                 A4
I felt my heart go cold as I sank between
    D2                                   E4  A4  D2
The ocean I am and the river I'm meant to be
E4            A4  D2
I'm meant to be

|Repeat Chorus|

          Dsus4                  Dsus4/F#
|Bridge|: Now I'm standing by the window on a Sunday
      Em7                     Gsus2           A7
And I can't quite recall why I cannot move at all
And I feel so tired and wounded
Like the stitches on my soul came apart
             Gsus2            A7
I'm standing here in the dark
Well, maybe it's from the drinks we had last night
    Dsus4/F#                          Em7
But good god, I love those friends of mine
The best that alcohol can buy
Or maybe it's from the lack of sleep
              Dsus4/F#                                    Em7
But all those secrets I've kept, trying to be so sweet to you

It's dark, my dear
              Gsus2              A7
But it got me through, it got me through

|Repeat Chorus|

          E4           A4        D2    E4           A4        D2 (hold)
|Refrain|:Causes me to be so unstable, causes me to be so unstable

         E4                        A4
|Outro|: Sometimes I wonder if I'm only a ghost
Wearing human skin I never chose
E4                    A4
I listen to the devil as he spoke
Because he tempted me with a beautiful rose

So then give me some suggestions to make this tab more player-friendly/ accurate... I can't help you if all you tell me is that you don't like it../
