I'm kinda sick so I thought I'd finally figure out this song.
This is what I've got so far? I'm way too lazy and (believe it or not) too busy to lift the solo and all the cool backing shit that they do. But it's enough for you to sing with it. And that's all I want to do right now!
Notes in parentheses are harmonies (they're optional)
That "beat" line below the tab denotes down beats. ?Or when you should tap your foot.
Played fast. With kind of a shuffle feel.
Chords: Am B5 C5 F

Beat: x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x
You can play either full chords or power chords.
Should still work.
[Am]Nothing feels right
F Am(intro riff)
but my fake smiles paint pictures like everything's fine
[Am]the cheap line wasn't told
so they've got s[F]pindles spinning bad songs into g[Am]old
a[C]nd who d[F]ecides what's wrong o[G]r right?[F] [G#]
when the [D]puzzle pieces twist[G]
and seem like t[Am]hey won't fit their [F]match
[D]i'll be waiting, [F]i'll be waiti[Am]ng[C] [F]
[A/D]and all the best songs
[F]what's the best about them?
[Am]i thought i was part of something more
but m[F]ore money, less substance, more de[Am]mand
not for great songs, that no one understands
you [F]can't lay brick on wet cement
or build ca[Am]stles out of sand[C]
bu[F]t who dec[G]ides?[F] [G#]
but when the p[D]uzzle pieces tw[G]ist
and seem like they [Am]won't fit their m[F]atch
then i will [D]try and try ag[G]ain
and hope that some[Am]one understan[F]ds
[D]i'll be waiting, [F]i'll be waiting
[Am]and they can say they l[G]ove you
but it [C]still won't change a [F]thing
cause the [F]tides may [F#]turn [A#]tomor[A]row
and[F] i won't be[G] there t[C]o look
[Am]i can say
[C]i've got to say
Something around F?
dollar by dollar your soul gets smaller
Possibly G#?
trending what we've fought to make ours
[C]they don't care about[C/B]
they don't care
it's a g[F]ood thing that trends fade away
it's [Am]so much cooler i[G]n the shade
And repeat that C > C/B > F > Am > G until the end!
End on C (both when they stop in the middle and at the end the song)
And just for kicks, here's the start of that solo. it should be in C.
V(pinch harmonic?)

Much love, Jason.
