Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
For the longest time I wanted a tab for this but couldn't find one, so I figured I'd tab 
out for myself.
The intro is played through out the song and i'll put (intro) where it is played. Do 
you want with it.
Enjoy!

Intro: (NOT relative to capo)

E: ----------7---------------------7-------------|
B: -------10---10---10-7---8-----8---7---10------|
G: ---7-----------9----------7---------7----9^-7-|
D: -9---9----------------------9-----------------|
A: ----------------------------------------------|
E: ----------------------------------------------|

Walk down the bass notes on the C at the end of each bar in the verse/chorus. ie. C -> 
-> A, or 3-3-2-0 on the A string.
Slide up the F to a G at the end of the pre-chorus.
The chords in the chorus are palm muted.
The chords in the bridge are all power chords on the A string, slide them up the neck.


Capo on 2

(Intro)
(Intro) Am, G, F, C

   Am            G
Burn it all and break your home

       F                  C
Cause this one's for the boys

  Am                 G
You're a vain and shameless man

     F                  C
But hell, I love your voice

(Intro)
Am, G, F, C


   Am                G
Skinny fingers and mumbling mouths

    F                    C
I'd like to mark your words

 Dm                        C                       F
'cause sometimes I don't trust you when you're singing

     Em
Of love and play

           F       G
It's the story of you


   Am              G
Losing to your daydream

       F               C
You dancing with a smokescreen

       Am                     G
Goin' under with your daydream

        F                    C
In the wake of a big machine

(Intro)
Am, G, F, C

Honey, honey, and money and man

 F              C
All my lonely boys

  Am              G
Easy with the sleight of hand

          F                       C
You're talking sweet 'bout the pain and the ladies


       Dm                C                 F
And sometimes you look ugly when you're happy

       Dm                C                  F
And sometimes you look better when you're down

   Em
A real good song

           F       G
It's the story of you


   Am              G
Losing to your daydream

       F               C
You dancing with a smokescreen

       Am                     G
Goin' under with your daydream

        F                          C
You're sliding through the big sleep


      Bb
Man, you can sing

           Bb   D                      Bb D          F
Like you're tryin' to break my heart

     Bb
And you can hate

            Bb   D                  Bb D          F
And you can blame it on the stars

         Am                 G
You're strung up in your guitar

         Am                   G
You're strung out on who you are

  Em                 F       G
Come on boys, it's time you let it go


(intro till end)


(Losing to your daydream)


(You dancing with a smokescreen)


(Goin' under with your daydream)


(You're sliding through the big sleep)

         Am              G
See me losing to your daydream

          F                          C
See me dancing with your smokescreen

       Am                 G
Going under with your daydream

        F                    C
In the wake of a big machine
