Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
This is my first tab and I'm sure it's accurate however, feel free 
to use as a rough guide. Any section can be 
picked at your leisure. 
There are 3 basic sections to the song excluding the outro 
(which I tabbed a little shady I know). I've 
named them verse, pre-chorus and chorus.  
Some of the metre and timing in this song 
is strange but I'm sure you just need to listen to it for rhythm and changes.  Good Luck!

  No need for streets they just compete with other people
          B5              E5
  Walking side by side on sidewalks
             B5                      E5        B5   E5   B5   E5
  With their clocks all ticking simultaneously

  A secret way
B5                  E5                    B5   E5   B5   E5
  Some people know about but know one ever sees

  Pay no mind to the signs or highway lines

  I'll take the train tracks there
B5                   E5                       B5        E5  B5  E5
  The ones that run behind the houses down on Pine Street
            B5                E5
  Traveling side by side like lovers
        B5            E5
  Never crossing one another
         B5  E5  B5 E5  
  So to speak

Pre-Chorus
C#m                                         D#7  
  And I will walk these tracks forever even if the weather
                     B5  E5  B5 E5 
  doesn't change in weeks
C#m                   
  And though we more deserved it long ago
     D#7                              B5    (Goes directly into chorus)
  it doesn't hurt to know their times free

Chorus
           E5  G#m  (Quick Bb5)
  (Fast or slow)
B5         E5            G#m  G  
  Take the shortcuts and side roads
B5        E5  B5      G#m    C#m           F#
  Pay no mind to the signs or highway lines
                      B5
  We'll get there our way    

Then go directly into chorus again
Fast or slow...
