[Intro]
(Play through a few times with just the bass part, then add in the higher notes,
letting them ring out.)

B|--------|-3~----|-------|--------|
G|--------|-------|-------|--------|

D|----7-0-|-0-4~--|-----2---|---4-0--|
A|--7---7-|-------|-3-----3-|--------|
E|--------|-------|---------|-3------|


(Then repeat these two sections, but instead of straight quavers, split the second note of each bar
into two semi-quavers. There's also a ghost note (shown in brackets) that I kind 
of play at the end of each bar.
Listen to the youtube video to see what I mean. You can't really hear the pitch of these,
so don't worry too much about playing the specific note shown in brackets.
It's more about hitting some string from the chord and having it a bit muted:)

[Verse]
To get the rhythm, match the vocal melody of the song/listen to the youtube video.

"Travelling, swallowing, Dramamine..."
"Feeling spaced, breathing out Listerine."

It gets a bit heavier here; don't worry about being too accurate with which strings you hit.

absolutely amazing tab, but i find it easier to play that last part in the first line as:

e|--7~----|-------|-3~----|-3------|
B|--------|-3~----|-------|--------|
G|--------|-------|-------|--------|
D|----5---|---4---|---2---|---4----|
A|--7---7-|-5---5-|-3---3-|-----5--|
E|--------|-------|-------|-3------|

Idk, i find barring the whole 3rd fret is easier and i transition back to the beginning easier. I also like having the high e ring out again too
