There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I saw no tabs for this song anywhere, perhaps because the album was unreleased. 
These are just the chords I managed to put together, but I hope they help. If you 
have any improvements for it just email me or upload a better one (:

Capo on the first fret.

**VERSE 1 & 2**

C         G                F    C
As Mother Nature sings Her requiem
    F                     C             G
The machines all gather around and sing along
C            G                F         C
We hang from kites until the tide comes in
      F          C                   G
It'll be another week before we know what's wrong

C            G               F    C
We watch the trees turn into skeletons
    F                      C                   G
As the leaves float to the ground and fill the cracks
C              G           F            C
They'll try to show us the improvements then
         F              C                        G
But they know without a doubt that we won't come back


C            F                    C
Drift to the moon, write out your name
There's something to remember
C                 F
The smile on your face
Cadd9                G                 C
Is enough to make me crawl out of this place

C                     F             C    F 
So let's the chew the fat until the axis bends
C                            F                 G
Well, we'll climb inside the sun and write our wills
C              F              C    F
We'll sell our secrets to the government
C                            F                       G
So the world can eat them up until they've had their fill

C             F                   C
Caught in the rain, soaked to the bone
I'm nothing to remember
C                     F
But the smile on your face
Cadd9                G
Is enough to make me crawl out of this place

C          G
Torn paper birds
F             C
Drop from the sky
G            F      C
And carry my home away
C                G
The rooms and the walls
F             C
Climb out and fall
G              F  C
I hope they'll be okay

C           F
When you're fearless
C           F            D
It makes it hard to stay awake
C           F
When you're gutless
C           F                D
It makes it hard to play the game

    C            G        
The cracks in my spine
    F           C
The gleam in my eye
    G       D      F
The fork inside my lungs
C             G
They'll never change
    F           C
And I'll do the same
   G             D   F
The war that's never won
