My first Tab, so be patient with me ^_^ This is MY version of the song, and may not 
reflect the song itself. But it sounds right to me.

An acoustic guitar plays this throughout the whole song.

MAIN RIFF

 |------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 |------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 |------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 |------------------------------------------------------------------------|
 |------5-----5---------9-----9---------0-----0---------2-----2-----------|
 |--5-5---5-5---5-5-9-9---9-9---9-9-0-0---0-0---0-0-2-2---2-2---2-2-------|

After the guitar plays that twice over, this comes in on an keyboard of something (you 
play it on an electric guitar too). Listen to the rhythm on the song:

RIFF ONE

|------7-10----7-10-----|
|-7h10------ 7----------|
|-----------------------|
|-----------------------|
|-----------------------|
|-----------------------|

That continues until the vocals start. There are loads  or weird effects throughout, 
on a synth or keyboard, but i won't tab them.

At the chorus I like to play single chords on the electric I use for the riff above (let 
ring), except on the last chorus where I play them at a faster pace:

|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|--5--------------x-x-9--------------x-x-0-------------x-x-2-------------|
|--5--------------x-x-9--------------x-x-0-------------x-x-2-------------|
|--5--------------x-x-9--------------x-x-0-------------x-x-2-------------|

Then at about 2:25 some strange sound starts that goes a bit like this:

RIFF TWO

|-------------------|
|-------------------|
|--4-6-7-4-4-7-4-6--|   x3
|-------------------|
|-------------------|
|-------------------|

|--------------------|
|--------------7-5---|
|--4-6-7-4-4-7-------|
|--------------------|
|--------------------|
|--------------------|

And that plays until the end, I think. Listen to the song for yourself to get the timing 
accuracy.

That is essentially all you can play on guitar. To play it like the song, you'll need a 
and synth, although a good way to play it acoustically is to play the main riff for 
except the chorus, where I advice you to play the chords.

Email me with any corrections, etc.

My only comment/correction is that he doesn't play in drop D, He's a man. =p

And the videos that i have seen of him playing this song reflects that he in fact plays in standard tuning.

The only correction i can find would be to play on the seventh fret instead of the second. So the frets for the chords on the chorus will become 5 - 9 - 0 - 7
