Solo:       (although diferent from the song you can just keep playing the
             D to G progession from the intro and verses five or so times to
             take the place of the solo) then:

Chorus 4:   I can't stand this indecision,
            G               F#m

          G              F#m   
            One headline why believe it?,
            Em   F#m  G        A
            Everybody wants to rule the world.

Solo 2:     (Again slightly different from the song but just repeat the

            Em              F#m
Chorus 6:   All for freedom and for pleasure,
            G            F#m
            Nothing ever lasts for ever,
            Em   F#m  G        A           D    G

This is a very poor tab. See power tab version, for literally perfect tab of this.

elektikeegle is right on with the Dmaj7. And with a capo on 2 you can transpose the song to help your guitar friends play w/easier chords. The F#m would be a Em.
