This is a great song but i couldn't find any tabs for this so i just tabbed it out 
myself and i'm pretty sure this is 100% accurate so check it out.

Standard Tuning: EADGBe
Capo: 3th Fret

Chords: (written as used without capo)

  Fadd9  F      G      F

Okay, so the most 'tricky' part
(as far as you wanna call it tricky)
is the rhytm of the Cadd9 and the G chords..
The rhytm of these two particular chords
is used troughout the whole song except 
for the chorus..

       Fadd9  F
E|-------x----3--333-- (repeated)


[Intro:] (guitar kicks in just before the laughing part)

Fadd9, F, Fadd9, F,  
Fadd9, F, G, F       (repeat 2x times)


Fadd9        F  Fadd9            F
   You live out where the street ends

     Fadd9    F         G           F
in a basement apt. with one of your friends

        Fadd9         F
and the tap drips all night

      Fadd9          F
water torture in the sink

    Fadd9      F
The furnace is burning

          G    F        Fadd9 F
but it's still cold i think ___

Fadd9, F, Fadd9, F, G, F

Fadd9           F
I can smell the bleach

          Fadd9      F
that they use in the hall

       Fadd9           F           G   F
but it can't clean the dirt off of me

             Fadd9     F
It's seeping under the door

Fadd9         F
in across the floor

     Fadd9       F
it's starting to hurt


(G)   (F)   Fadd9     F   Fadd9
Everytime I breatthe__|

     F             Fadd9  F  G  F
Everytime I try to leave__|

            Fadd9       F   G F
Everytime I breathe_____|


        Fadd9   F
Now the toaster sticks

        Fadd9       F
and the empties are piled

  Fadd9               F               G    F  
I haven't been up the stairs in awhile now

  Fadd9          F    
I gotta wash the sheets on my bed

Fadd9           F  
gotta watch the things that go unsaid

Fadd9           F            G    F
God I wish we'd leave it at this____|

[Repeat Chorus] (except the beginning D & C 
               chords wich are already 
               played at the end of verse)


  And every evening you open the door

You come down

        G                                           F
There's nothing like watching tv all night on the ground

    G                       F
and no one is watching me slide

below street level

         C    (pump up this chord, get ready for the chorus)
barely alive

[Instrumental] (chords from the chorus)

[Last verse]

    Fadd9   F   Fadd9            F
Now we live out where the street ends

     Fadd9    F         Fadd9    F
in a basement apt. just like our friends

          Fadd9             F
We always said that we were different

        Cadd0            F
but you know now that we weren't

       Fadd9                    F
'cause there's holes in all the bottles

    G        F
and my lungs hurt___|

[Repeat Chorus]
