                 This tab is actually from another site and it is the only one i can find
which I think is correct. I have redone this tab so it looks better and is
 easier to follow with lyrics. The main thanks should be to Ciaran Mc Hale
                    who actually figured out the Tab.

lyrics: This is actually what he trying to mumble

go

tears of joy now scare ourselves of all that you want to be
just got paid and now you're going, how inside you please
if i get scared I'll just call you and I'll miss your glow as I unsettle
oh, and I'll always feel, I will always be

right, one, two, three, four

so sell your suit and tie and come and live with me
leukemia schizophrenia polyethylene
there is no significant risk to your health
she used to be beautiful once as well

plastic bag, middle class, polyethylene
decaffeinate, unleaded, keep all surfaces clean
if you don't believe this, sell your soul
if you don't get into it, no one will
