This is how I play the song! Suggestions and corrections welcome!
Watching this video: "Los Campesinos - In Medias Res (Mosaic Music Festival Singapore 2012)" 
on youtube really helped me figure it out. 
The lyrics in parenthesis are from the "All's Well That Ends" version, but the chords are the same
in both songs. It's also a little easier to hear the chord changes in that version in some parts too. 

B  E  F#  G#m E x4

A    F# G#m A    F# E

Verse 1:

But let's talk about you for a minute 
With the vomit at your gullet 
        F#                             G#m              E
From a half bottle of vodka that we'd stolen from the optic 
        B                                 E
On the back seat of your car, because it wasn't safe to start it 
          F#                                 G#m               E
You were "far too fucked to drive", were the words that you imparted 
           B                 E                     F#             G#m   E
And the woollen dress that clung so tight to the contours of your body 
         B                    E              F#            G#m    E
And the dead grass stuck to fibres from us rolling in the lay-by 
       B                     E
Were passed to dog-haired blankets 
        F#                     G#m    E
That protected the bench seat covers 
         B          E                    F#            G#m    E
And a crucifix was hung from rear view mirror by your mother 

A    F# G#m A    F# E

(glockenspiel part:)

Ab  B  Ab  Bb Db x3

Verse 2:

      Ab                  B           Ab          Bb    Db
I'm leaving my body to science, not medical but physics 
Ab                           B          Ab                 Bb       Db
Drag my corpse through the airport and lay me limp on the left wing 
Ab                      B                       Ab                             Bb    Db
Drop me at the highest point and trace a line around the dent I leave in the ground 
Ab                B                       Ab                 Bb
That'll be the initial of the one you'll marry now I'm not around 
   Db       Ab                          B
I flew for seven hours, the sky didn't once turn black 

B   G#m   E Dbm

And I would sooner go down in a ball of flames!
(Then I would lay here and be bored to death
                  E    Dbm  G#m
 All's well that ends.)

B  E  F#  G#m E x2

Verse 3:

   B                   E                 F#               G#m    E
I wake from sleep, my head and shoulder, wet against the window 
   B                     E                F#                    G#m     E 
A frost had formed and melted, soaked me right through to my collarbone 
B                       E                 F#                 G#m
If you were given the option of dying painlessly in peace at 45 
E            B            E             F#            G#m  E  B
But with a lover at your side, after a full and happy life 
            E                   F#    G#m  E  B
Is this something that would interest you? 
              E             F#  G#m  E
Would this interest you at all?

B  E  F#  G#m E
