VERSE

"Soul in isolation, I can hear you breathing down the hall
Soul in isolation, I can hear you crying through the walls
And if I had a mind to now I could call to you
Or I could simply shut you out, no more would you cry"

VERSE
Am, Dsus-D, Fmaj7, E

"I'll give you my time to kill but you'll never never break my will
Or I could sink a sleeping pill and in the morning could be sleeping still
But most of you are much too ill way beyond a surgeon's skill
In bondage to a dollar bill.  What more can you buy?"

CHORUS
Am, C, G

"Oh, when you think on it we're all souls in isolation
Alive in here, I'm alive in here"

MIDDLE PART
E (muted)

"Come here-- a word in your ear.  You can't go back to the trees.
Big bad giant standing tall, crushing all the creatures great and small
I'd like to see this giant fall.  When will it come?
Words that rattle round my head, struck by lightning someone said.
A single pebble through the head hits me right in the brain.  Are they right in the brain?"

VERSE
Am, Dsus-D, Fmaj7, E

"Will I see the jailer's face?  Did my mother bring me to this place?
Will I live to see his face?  Will another come to take my place?
In total isolation, surrounded by crowds, too many tears from too many clowns
Isolation, surrounded by crowds in another world head in the clouds
I'm alive in here I scream but you still don't hear
I'm alive in here, I'm alive turn on the light"

CHORUS
Am, C, G

"When you think on it we're all souls in isolation
I'm alive in here, I'm alive"

Am, C, G

"We're always searching for something, searching
Dear, dear dead days and longing - for you
Sweetest virgin, now deflowered

FINAL VERSE
Am, Dsus-D, Fmaj7, E

"Soul in isolation, I can hear you breathing down the hall
Soul in isolation, I can hear you crying through the walls
And if I had a mind to now I could call to you
Or I could simply shut you out, no more would you cry"

Nice tab!
There is also a stripped down acoustic version which goes like this.
