Tabbed again, this time the whole song! It's not 100% there's still bits of Rostam 
guitar bits to do but it's the closest I can come up to for know.

Bass and Drums in first two verses:

You found a sweater on the ocean floor
They're gonna find it if you didn’t close the door.
You and this model sit outside the side,
In a house on a street they wouldn’t park on the night.

Dad was a risk taker.
His was a shoe maker.
You greatest hits 2006,
Little listmaker.

Caught in the melody,
You wait in the car.
You were born with ten fingers and you're gonna use them all.

Interest in colors
I discover myself
If your art life is gritty you'll be toasting my health
If an interest in culture should be lining the walls
When your birth right is interest you could just accrue it all

          E
Me and my cousins,
                 F#
And you and your cousins
B                B7
Its a line that always running.
          E
Me and my cousins,
             F#
You and your cousins,
B             B7
I can feel it coming.

You can throw your back on the bitter wood,

also if you could probably figure out the guitar riff behind the first guitar during the part after the chorus and the little riff at the end there,that would be great
