Note: This is tabbed for one guitar ONLY, and the intro is definitely not perfect, 
but it is the closest I could figure out. Hopefully it helps a bit.

          D         D                Em     Am G Am G

G                              D     D
Styrofoam cup of mud in my good hand,
G                                    
Disembodied voice of God in the trash can
D                                    Em  Em
Eyes in the ashes, feeling for the future
D
Sleeping through the stake-out, researching the rumor.

G                                 D   D
A mile, a motor, a mattress, a memory,
G                                    
At first you were embarrassed, but how could you not be,
D                               Em  Em
Tangled in teenage mom at the movies,
D
Your voice ran out out of words,
                           Em Em, Am, G, Am, G
It was awkward and homey.

G                              
Gospel in your belly, the ache a little lower,
G
Back into the breach,  you spoke as it's owner.
D
Syndicated sermon you sang from the rafters,
D
Anchors in you pockets, holding down the laughter.

G
Tearing up your mind, your lust and your ego,
G
Slingshot a martyr to speed your libido,
D
Perish grows to jelly, blissful and wasted,
D                                                   Em Em, Am, G, Am, G
Your Vishnu eye slips open and pictures them naked

Break:
Gx8, Emx8

       C                 G
You're complicating your worst mixed messes,
    C                  G
You built then burnt a bridge.
                       C 
And scattered all your crumbs at the cliff,
    D     D
She wants me, she'll swim for it.

Solo: (There is a lot of bending and interesting distortion here so I can't  get 
it perfect, but you should be able to work with this)

G                           G    G
Brother, can you spare your arms or your arrows?
G                         G     G
Thunder clap's arising, I think that I should
D
Go home to the basement, back on Jumel street,
D
1996 and your waiting there to tell me,

G
"I didn't die, you dreamt it, you dreamt it,
G
I'm as alive as your best good intentions.
D
Sorry that I tricked you, you had to focus
D                                                 Em Em, Am, G, Am, G
Pull yourself together, clear out the garbage."

Break:
Gx8, Emx8

        C
But for all that effort,
    G
The slow burned struggle,
  C                G
I forgot where you live. 
                   C                          D       
She swept away the clues from the cliff, your lost now.(x4)
           Em   Am
Remembering.
                    C                         D
She swept away the clues from the cliff, your lost now.

Remembering. 

Outro: Same deal as the solo:
