Tuning: Half-Step Down

This is already here, but the chords are in the wrong key or something, so here is the 
album version, with tabs at the bottom.


INTRO: (w/ lead): E


VERSE: (w/ lead)
E                                     C#m          B
Here's to you, the same chords that I stole from a song that I once heard
E                 C#m                   B
The Same melody I borrowed from the void. I'd rather observe
E                     C#m       B
than structure a narrative, the characters are thin
E                   C#m      B
the plot does not develop it ends where it begins

E      C#m   B    x2

E                                     C#m           B
It's on the screen, in paperbacks, in section 8 and cul-de-sacs
E                                    C#m        B      A
Electro haikus and drunk sonnets are moving me along. Along


INTERLUDE: (w/ lead):   E      A      x2


CHORUS:
E                         C#m
You cut my hair, you left red ink everywhere
B                  A            B
Do my hands tell a story? Is it boring?
E                         C#m
You cut my hair, you left red ink everywhere
B                  A            B
Do my hands tell a story? Is it boring?


VERSE: (w/ lead)
E                                          C#m     B
What I'd give to force your sigh, what I'd give to see you cry
         E                                C#m               B
What I'd give for your caress to see your blue cotton dress balled up on the floor
E                        C#m             B
Certain memories are the problem certain drunken lines are the shame
E             C#m                          B                A
Seven hundred miles and four years I can't fight the flame; it burns


CHORUS:
E                         C#m
You cut my hair, you left red ink everywhere
B                  A            B
Do my hands tell a story? Is it boring?
E                         C#m
You cut my hair, you left red ink everywhere
B                  A            B
Do my hands tell a story? Is it boring?


OUTRO: (w/ lead)
E
Was I wishing on satellites?
Tell me how you've been doing that trick
I'm just wishing the flame away
Now I'm wishing the flame away

Really good tab, it sounds great. Despite the title of the song being wrong. :p

Great tab, just a minor correction for you.

The intro is better being at octave higher like how it is played at the end. It should be like this
INTRO:
E
eb|----------------------------------|
Bb|--------------12--10--9-----------|
Gb|-----------9-------------11~~~~~--|
Db|-9---~~~--------------------------|
Ab|-7---~~~--------------------------|
Eb|-0---~~~--------------------------|
