Killer. This new ALK3 album is already in my all-time favorites and I only just bought it. 
This opening track is amazing, and I'm pretty sure that 90% of this tab is correct.

Verse 1:

C#5                          A5            F#5        C#5
   I've got a book of matches   I've got a can of kerosene

                       A5          F#5
I've got some bad ideas  involving you and me

        C#5                        A5                F#5
I don't blame you for walking away I touch myself at thoughts of flames

  C#5                             A5              F#5            C#5
I shat the bed I laid there in it thinking of you wide awake for  days


*Back to the intro*


Verse 2:
(Same progression)

And i found you tongue tied
My twisted little brain
You couldn't crack a smile
I didn't catch your name
I don't blame you for walking away
I'd do the same if i saw me
I swear it's not contageous
Four short steps we can erase this


Chorus:

     E2                        A5              B5
Step one: slit my throat, step two: play in my blood

     E2                                      A5                  B5
Step three: cover me in dirty sheets and run laughing out of the house

     E2                                    A5                 B5
Step four: stop off at edgebrook creek and rinse your crimson hands

A5                      B5               A5                           B5
You took me hostage and made your demands  I couldn't meet `em so you cut off 

                   C#5
My fingers, One by one


*Back to the intro*


Verse 3:
(Same progression again, just let the first few notes ring)

I'm like a broken record
I've got a needle scratching me
It injects the poison of alcohol I.V.
I don't blame you for walking away
I'd do the same if i saw me
I swear it's not contagious
Swear to God it's not contagious


Chorus:
(Same prigression)

Step one: slit my throat
Step two: play in my blood
Step three: cover me in dirty sheets
And run laughing out of the house
Step four: stop at lake michigan 
And rinse your crimson hands
You took me hostage you made your demands
I couldn't meet them so you cut off my fingers


Bridge:
(there's two guitars here playing)

          C#m~~~~
          C#5          G#5*   A5
...One by one

C#m~~~~
C#5                 G#5*     A5
This could be love (love for fire)

C#m~~~~
C#5                 G#5*     A5
This could be love (love for fire)

C#m~~~~
C#5                 G#5*     A5
This could be love (love for fire)

C#5                    A5      B5
This could be love for fire forevermore


Chorus:
(Same progression)

Step one: slit my throat
Step two: play in my blood
Step three: cover me in dirty sheets
And run laughing out of the house
Step four: stop at berkeley marina 
Rinse those crimson hands
You took me hostage and made your demands
I couldn't meet them so you cut off my fingers
One by one


Carry on with the "one by one"s with the E2-A5-B5 progression then end the song with an E chord (022100). 
There you have it. E-mail me and tell me what you think (or if its wrong). And if someone has 
figured out how to play "We've Had Enough" or "All On Black" yet by ALK3, let me know. Over and Out.
