My first tab! I was looking for chords and couldn't find them anywhere so I tried 
playing a few and they seemed to work! This is completely by ear so it's probably not 100% 
correct, but it sounds right when I play it. Enjoy!

No Capo, standard tuning (EADGBe).

Intro:
G D Am C Cadd9 (x2)

Verse 1:

G
Live to work, work to live
D
No time left to spend or give
Am             Am7
Walking like a bureaucrat
C              D
Talking like a diplomat

Verse 2:

G
Always look into their eyes
D
Firm handshakes, quick replies
Am                Am7
Push the product, sell the crop
C                 D
Climb that ladder to the top

Verse 3:

G
But what if it's not meant for me?
D
I can't stand the symmetry
Am               Am7
My head is stuck inside the clouds
C             Cadd9
But I can see clearly now

Chorus:

G                      D                    Am       Am7
I'm trying to find the means to living more passionately
C                 Cadd9   G
Cause I'm not who I wanna be
             D                        Am         Am7
Buried in routines, I don't care what happens to me
C      Cadd9     G
I just gotta get free

G D Am C D

Verse 4:

G
I am no proprietor
D
Tell that that to my dear father
Am                   Am7
Taught me everything he knew
C                    D
About nothing that I wanna do

Verse 5:

G
Earned awards, honors, degrees
D
I couldn't find myself in these
Am                    Am7
So I took my car keys and ID's
C                       D
And threw them in the ocean

Bridge:

Em              D               Am7     D       C
Now, all of the world is laying right before my eyes
         Am              D7               
I wonder why the hell it took so long for 
G     D    Am7 C  G   D C Em 
me to recognize
     (recognieieiiize)

Am7 G D Cadd9 Am7 C D


G                      D                    C
I'm trying to find the means to living more passionately
Am                Am7     G
Cause I'm not who I wanna be
             D                        C          Am7
Buried in routines, I don't care what happens to me

Chorus:

       G                      D                    Am       Am7
I said I'm trying to find the means to living more passionately
C                 Cadd9   G
Cause I'm not who I wanna be
             D                        Am         Am7
Buried in routines, I don't care what happens to me
C      Cadd9     G
I just gotta get free

G D Am C

       Cadd9     G
I just gotta get free

G D Am C D (Repeat and fade)

Ok, there are a couple of things I forgot and something that went weird somewhere between submitting and it being posted. Sorry it got messed up at the bridge, the "Am7, C and G" chords directly above "I wonder" are supposed to be all on the word "recognise" and the "Am, D7, G D .. etc" two lines above the words are the ones that go with the words "I wonder why the hell it took so long for me to recognize". You can add an Am7 in the intro bits between the Am and C in the intro, not necessary but I think it soudns nice. Also, when I put in Csus2, I mean: E-0
A-3
D-0
G-0
B-1
e-0
That's it! :)
