It sounds best using the barr chords for most of the chords except in verse when going 
A to normal E chord (i.e. fight to be someone) and also in the chorus going from A to E 
I'm the one swinging).


           E
Mike was right when he said I'd put up
    A           E         A          B
A fight to be someone, a fight to be me
         E
But see now, I'm down
Under the pavement
      A      E          A         B
Of capital hills and lowercase people
    C#        A      F#           B
As time rolls by my dreams have become
      G#           C#
That which is attainable
 B
Not what I'm looking for!


 E             B      C#    G G# A
I've got the company car
              E          G#        A   C
I'm the one swinging at two below par
                   E            B
Yeah, I've become one with the ones
            C#     A
That I've never believed in
     E             G#     A
But I've got the company car


         E
I'm the king of things I've always despised
           A         E
I'm the gingerbread man
          A      B
who got eaten alive
          E
I'm half-baked! I'm fake!
But see I've got hotels on
    A            E
Park Place and Boardwalk
    A            B
And two hundred bucks
       C#      A           F#        B
I pass go but, oh! Life's taken its toll
     G#       C#        B
Have I won Monopoly to forfiet my soul?


 E             B      C#    G G# A
I've got the company car
              E          G#        A   C
I'm the one swinging at two below par
                   E            B
Yeah, I've become one with the ones
            C#     A
That I've never believed in
     E             G#     A
But I've got the company car


B               C#
All the king's horses
        Bb          C
At the foot of the wall
 A                B
They're taking pictures of
     G#             Bb
The man who's lost all of his
 A
Masks of pretension
          E
He's got two faces left
A                       F#
His is the one that he hides
        A
On the left behind that smile...


No guitar for 1st half of this verse:

Hiding tears and fear
That burns like an engine
It drives him away
From the ones that he loves
            E
Mike was right:
"Hey Mike! We're one and the same;
           A            E
we're the faceless combatants
         A        B
in the lonliest game"
        C#        A       F#         B
Ah but say, I'll wave as I'm driving by
           G#          C#
With that smirk in my eye, yelling
 B
"Hey! I'm something man, check me out!"


 E             B      C#    G G# A
I've got the company car
              E          G#        A   C
I'm the one swinging at two below par
                   E            B
Yeah, I've become one with the ones
            C#     A
That I've never believed in
     E             G#     A
But I've got the company car
     E             G#     A
But I've got the company car
     E             G#     A G# F# 
F# G# A
But I've got the company car

If you play these as power chords, they don't sound half bad. Overall though, this tab isn't very accurate. sorry :(
