                A fantastic song and a huge hit for the band, and one of my favourites.
This is a complete tab as far as I know….

INTRO: Am   Em   F   C   F

VERSE 1
Am                           Em
   The future teaches you to be alone
    F                        C
The present to be afraid and cold.
    Dm                      Am                    G
‘So if I can shoot rabbits then I can shoot fascists’

VERSE 2
Am                   Em
   Bullets for your brains today
    F                     C
But we’ll forget it all again
          Dm
Monuments put from pen to paper
Am                        G
Turns me into a gutless wonder

CHORUS
           Dm            Am                         G
And if you tolerate this then your children will be next
           Dm            Am                          G
And if you tolerate this then your children will be next,
        G            G            G
Will be next will be next will be next.

Am    Em    F    C    F
 
VERSE 3
Am              Em            F              C
  Gravity keeps my head down, or is it maybe shame
    Dm            Am           G
At being so young and being so vain.
Am              Em             F          C
  Holes in your head today but I’m a pacifist I’ve 
 Dm               Am                 G
Walked La Ramblas but not with real intent.

REPEAT CHORUS

SOLO

This is all played on the B string.

B-3/ 10~~~~~~~~~-8~~~~~~~~~13-12~~~~~~~~~~10/-6~~~~-10/-5~~~~~~-1/-3~~~~~

BRIDGE: played on distorted guitar on the A string. 
       8          7                  2      0 3 2
And on the street tonight an old man plays,
     8         7                   3     5 
With newspaper cuttings of his glory days.

REPEAT CHORUS

ENDING

Repeat the chords from the chorus  3  times and then end on one strum of  F, C, G

That’s pretty much it.
