it's definitely not perfect but it works great on it's own or along to the song ...!!!!
i've put in tabs for the intro instead of chords because that's how i play it ...

VERSE:

B                      D           
Dearly beloved we are gathered here today,
      Am
To lament the loss of honesty,
         Em
To the art of saving face.
     B          D
Of vanity and opacity,
     Am                          Em
A generation lost beneath the waves.
Gm          D
Loose lips sink ships,
      Am               Em
And we're all going down.


CHORUS:

     Am                  E          
We're in the throes of vertigo,
D                  Gm
Higher is impossible.
      Am       
Sink like a stone,
    E
Let it all go,
D                   G
Higher is impossible.


*FILL 1*


VERSE 2:
     B                 
The oceans rise to break the bow,
     D        
And I find peace within the sound,
   A              Em
Of water rushing in.
    B         
So bid farewell to all you know,
D
Take your place way down below,
      A                  Em
We'll sleep beneath the waves.
Gm          D
Loose lips sink ships,
      Am               Em
And we're all going down.


REPEAT CHORUS



Gm          D
Loose lips sink ships,
      Am               Em
And we're all going down.



D              Am         Em
So slowly we drift down,
                       Gm
And all our Kings are dead now.



Repeat Em, Gm, D, Am until it fades out...

May i make a suggestion that in the intro, instead of moving to the A string and playing fret 5, stay on the E string and play at fret 12 :) i think this sounds better, but it is just a suggestion.

I think the outro bit is: B, A#, G, Em, G
Also I saw a video where they say they always tune to drop B so if you want it to sound even better play the same chords but in Drop B tuning which is: (from lowest to highest)

Great job though :)
