Em                                  D               G D  Em (G)
All day long I think of things but nothing seems to satisfy
Em                                 D                G  D  Em (G)

Occupy my brain
Oh yeah

I tell you to enjoy life I wish I could but it's too late

My very first time submitting something on this site; with some listening to the 
song you'll have it down in absolutely no time.  Good luck!

*Edit* Inserted the "Can you help me occupy my brain?" line, final verse, and outro.
*Edit 2* Fixed the tonality of all chords.  If you're playing power chords, it doesn't matter, 
but if you're playing an open six strings, you definitely want that Em instead of E.

Really good, would love a complete version with the line
"Can you help me occupy my brain?" as it has different chords but otherwise great.

I agree with you alex... great tab as a base...i tried to submit a full lyric version with a tabbed intro but didn't get thru the peer review cos they said there were too many (& mostly incomplete..!) versions already... perhaps I'll try re-submitting for the 3rd time...
