A great song, kind of hard to tab though because there's so much going on...

Tuning: Dropped D (DADGBe)

*The guitar part throughout the song is basically just playing octaves:

Intro riff (played between the verses too)

Since the song is entirely based around this structure (the chorus is picked like that 
I won't tab the rest...but here are the chords for the entire song:

Intro A, D

A
I keep my head uptight
                    F#m
I make my plans at night
                                                        D
And I don't sleep I don't sleep I don't sleep 'til it's light
            A                D       F#m
Something's flowing, someone buried alive

(A, D between verses)

Chorus

E/G#                              F#m             E
You know our hearts beat time out very slowly
E
You know our hearts beat time
        D           A                 F#m
They're waiting for something that'll never arrive


*then, right before the last chorus:

Bm
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
E
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
Bm
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh
F#m
Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Ooh

The last chorus is just the guitar which is going:

(you know our...                  ...very slowly)
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4-|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---|

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---0---0---7---7---4---4---4---4-|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---0---0---7---7---4---4---4---4---|

e|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|-----------------|
D|---4---4---4---4-|
A|-----------------|
D|-4---4---4---4---|

(AKA E, F#m, E, D, A, F#m)

The outro is just F#m, with *maybe* a D chord thrown in there (similar to the rhythm of 
intro chords, replace the A with the D) but it's hard to tell because the toms on the 
kind of muddy the bass

Chords: (I'll give the dropped D chords too - they might be easier)

        [EADGBe]  [DADGBe]
A       [x02220]  [x02220]
D       [xx0232]  [000232]
F#m     [244222]  [444222]
E/G#    [422100]  [679900]
E       [022100]  [222100]
Bm      [x24432]  [x24432]
