From the NPR Tiny Desk Concert: https://youtu.be/RZZHTVr-r-g

(These are just the bass notes Will is playing power chords but you can play whatever you'd like.)

E        D#    B
The drum wakes up
E          D#     A
He'll have a real black eye this time
E        D#    B
Hungover dream
E       D#     A
He hung around too long last night

E        D#   B
The drum gets up
E        D# A
How will he feel about this one?
E         D#     B
The dream throws up
E         D#   A
He didn't feel too good this time

F           B
He's got it all
F           A
He's got it figured out
F            B
Dream in the hall
F           A
Back in the hospital

F       B
I'm not concerned
F            A
He'll get it straight this time
          B               (Riff)
And if he doesn't, fuck it

[Verse 2]
E       D#   B
The gun goes off
E           D#  A
He's always off about something
E        D#   B
The drum just nods
E        D#    A
The drum ain't listening at all

E        D#   B
The drum gets drunk
E        D#    A
The drum reads James Joyce in the drunk
E         D#    B
The dream falls down
E          D#   A
The drum's face breaks the dream's fall

F             B
He don't have shit
F               A
He's learned to live with it
F             B
The drum's in debt
F                 B
You owe me, don't forget

F       B
That 20 bucks
F            A
Interest and moral support
And if you don't I swear

[Bridge] x3
A           B            A        B
This is our lifetime and I am his creator
A                  B               A                 B
A young man slowly pulled apart by separate poles of gravity

[Verse 3]
E        D#   B
The drum goes forth
E        D#  A
He's got his flag unfurled or something
E        D#    B
The drum won't stop
E        D#  A
The drum's a menace to the public

F              B
Hold your drum high
F           A
The drum is stoned again
F              B
Don't wake him up
F                B
He'll just start talking

F           B
The drum is dead (the dream is dead)
F             A
Long live the drum (long live the drum)
F                 B
And I am his creator

Not bad man, will plays a E not a F live though. That D# sounds augmented somehow but I'm not sure.
