This song is way too awesome to not be represented here in some way. 
This is intended to be a simplified version of Myles's Mars Hotel acoustic 
performance that you can find on YouTube (except for the end, which I've 
attempted to adapt to the studio version). Probably a little rough, but 
it'll get you through.

Chords:
C#5: x46600
B5:  x24400

You should be able to handle the rest yourself.


Mars Hotel

E   C#5   B5   A

  E
I saw her in an empty bar
    C#5
The smell of wine and cheap cigars
B5                          A       
Trigger visions of her face to this day
   E
We tried to dance for years to come
    C#5
But two can't lead and waltz as one
   B5
We loved and learned and learned to love
    A
But it was not enough
A                 F#m
Foolish pride got in our way

E                             C#5
  She could take my heart and soul
                            B5
  She could take my hand to hold
                               A       F#m
  But why'd she have to take advantage of me
E                            C#5
  I tried to pay for all the things
                         B5
  She could want or ever need
                                A
  Don't make me pay for all the past please

   E
So now we're living far apart
  C#5
I hope to God our paths don't cross
     B5                        A
This may seem shallow..but her beauty makes me weak
  E
I long to hold her once again
    C#5
And reconcile and then give in
   B5                       A
To realize that later on we made the same mistake
A              F#m
Hold on to the lessons you've learned

E                             C#5
  She could take my heart and soul
                            B5
  She could take my hand to hold
                               A       F#m
  But why'd she have to take advantage of me
E                            C#5
  I tried to pay for all the things
                         B5
  She could want or ever need
                                C#5
  Don't make me pay for all the past

           F#m
So much to tow
       E                            F#m
Bogged down with all the history to hold
    C#5                F#m
The blame fell hard on me
 E         
Apologies were too short lived
    F#m                           A
She never really could forgive mistakes

E   C#5   B5   A F#

E                             C#5
  She could take my heart and soul
                            B5
  She could take my hand to hold
                               A       F#m
  But why'd she have to take advantage of me
E                            C#5
  I tried to pay for all the things
                         B5
  She could want or ever need
                                A     F#m
  Don't make me pay for all the past

    E
She took my heart, she took my soul
    C#5
She took my fragile hand to hold
    B5
She took advantage all the time
     A                   F#m               E
I'll take her back cause her love makes me blind

C#5   B5   A


And there you go. Not sure about those ending chords and a few of those 
F#m chords may be something different, but if you play it like this it 
sounds fine. Enjoy!

Just remember to put the Eb tuning.
