The tab that I saw for Over my head right now is decent, but I wanted to change a few 
so I'm just tabbing my own version that I thing sounds great (probably not what they play, 
other words). Lemme know what you think.
PS I don't know the actual names of some of these chords, so I'll name them something 
like C* or C% for reference.

Capo 1st Fret for both guitar parts, all chord shapes relative to capo

Guitar I -- Chords
 C*
I never knew
  Em*             G              C*
I never knew that everything was falling through
     Em*        G                C*
That everyone I knew was waiting on a cue
   Em*      G              Am     G       D
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
                    C%
But that's how it's got to be
     Em*            G                 C%
It's coming down to nothing more than apathy
    Em*            G              C%
I'd rather run the other way than stay and see
    Em*       G           C%       Am      D
The smoke and who's still standing when it clears and
C    G   Em        G
Everyone knows I'm in
C       G
Over my head
Em      D*
Over my head
     C     G               Em  G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      C       G
She's on your mind
      Em   D*     C%      Em* G  
Em* G
She's on.. your.. mind
      C%
Let's rearrange
  Em*             G                C%
I wish you were a stranger I could disengage
     Em*          G             C%
Just say that we agree and then never change
   Em*   G            Am*      G     D
Soften a bit until we all just get a-long
           C%
But that's disregard
    Em*          G              C%
You find another friend and you discard
       Em*      G             C%
As you lose the argument in a cable car
    Em*   G          Am     G        D
Hanging above as the canyon comes between and
C    G   Em        G
Everyone knows I'm in
C       G
Over my head
Em      D*
Over my head
     C     G               Em  G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      C       G
She's on your mind
      Em      D*
She's on your mind
C    G   Em        G
Everyone knows I'm in
C       G
Over my head
Em      D*
Over my head
     C     G               Em  G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      C       G
She's on your mind
      Em   D*
She's on.. your..     (CHANGE OF RHYTHM)
          C%            Em*    G       C%
And suddenly I become a part of your past
           Em*         G         C%
I'm becoming the part that don't last
        Em*  G         Am*
I'm losing you and its effortless     (RHYTHM BACK TO NORMAL)
    C%                  Em*          G
Without a sound we lose sight of the ground
       C%
In the throw around
        Em*              G            C*
Never thought that you wanted to bring it down
        Em*        G           Am     G    Am*
I won't let it go down till we torch it ourselves and
C    G   Em        G
Everyone knows I'm in
C       G
Over my head
Em      D*
Over my head
     C     G               Em  G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      C       G
She's on your mind
      Em   D*     C%
She's on.. your.. mind

    Everyone knows
Em*        G       C%
