Motion City Soundtrack plays from Eb tuning. Everything should be shifted up one fret; the chorus should look something like this:

E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------4--4---6--6--6--6-------------------------4-4-4-4---------------|
D|-2--2--4--4---6--6--6--6---6--6--6--6---2-2-2-2--4-4-4-4--8-8-8-8-8-8-8|
A|-2--2--2--2---4--4--4--4---6--6--6--6---2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2--8-8-8-8-8-8-8|
E|-0--0----------------------4--4--4--4---0-0-0-0-----------6-6-6-6-6-6-6|

^ Stupid me left the tuning written in standard. The strings should be:

Eb or D#
Bb or A#
Gb or F#
Db or C#
Ab or G#
Eb or D#
