Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
One of the Alarms finest, (I think it sounds like the Who towards the end). This, I think, 
is a fair effort at this track, but I'd be willing to bet that this isn't 100% correct.
I have woked this out in standard tuning but, like a lot of Alarm songs, it would have been played 
a semi tone down. Tune down and transpose to get open chords 
If anyone has the time or the inclination to improve it for me I would be very greatful
There are several versions of this, this one is taken from 'in the poppy fields' (not the collected works)

Down in the gutter of my life story, I’m lying in a bed with a dream playing in my head
G#                                                                     C# G# F# C#   C# F# C# 
Spitting blood into a test tube, I used to be half a man, I used to be useful
F#                             C#      F#                                           C#  
I walk with the demons and the devils, shadow boxing the ghosts of my reflection in windows
D#m                 G#              D#m             G#
All the pigeons and the statues are staring down at me
       F#    C#      F# C#   G#
At the drunk and the disorderly 
       F#    C#      F# C#   G#
At the drunk and the disorderly

Paper bag bottles in the wardrobe, stealing from the shops where I once bought my hope

I'm all wrapped up in a plastic bag I'm lying still while the human race step over the rags

I’ll name the names in my diatribe, posthumously posted on my website
D#m              G#       D#m                 G#
Milkmen and taxi drivers, the last men on the street
        F#    C#      F# C#   G#
And the drunk and the disorderly

Chorus:
C#        G#           Bbm                 F#
Who am I, who are you, who is the god that we bow down to

I stepped out of the present tense, I cut the umbilical chord of reality
G#                                                                    C# G# F# C#  C# F# C#
I don’t know where this really is or where all this illusion really begins

I keep an old business card inside my shoes, an anonymous connection to the life I once used
D#m                    G#             D#m           G#
Curtains moving in the council houses on the grey estates

Of the drunk and the disorderly

C#        G#           Bbm                 F#
Who am I, who are you, who is the god that we bow down to
C#          G#            Bbm                F#              G#
Who are we, who are they, who is the master, who is the slave

I am powerless, there is a greater power, as I understand it, within myself

I’m ready for changing,     I’m ready to be changed,     hear my voice,     call and be called
F#                                  C# G# F# C# F#                                 C# G# F# C#
I know where the bodies have been buried,       I know things only the dead should know
D#m                      G#  D#m            G#
All above me, all around me, within and without
        F#    C#      F# C#   G#
Are the drunk and the disorderly
        F#    C#      F# C#   G#
Are the drunk and the disorderly
