Then play it again 3 times singing "Yeee-ooo-ooo" ( you know what I mean :) )

 B--3--3-------
 G--------2--2-

( I play it strumming 8 times each chord )
( In every D Dsus2 part, alternate a few times between the two chords )
[A]Another sub[C#m7]urban family m[D]orning.[Dsus2]
[A]Grandmother s[C#m7]creaming at the w[D]all.[Dsus2]
[A]We have to s[C#m7]hout above the d[D]in of our R[Dsus2]ice Crispies
[A]We can't hear a[C#m7]nything at a[D]ll.[Dsus2]
A Bm7/11/nr B7/11/nr Bm7/11/nr
Mother chants her litany of boredom and frustration,
A Bm7/11/nr B7/11/nr Bm7/11/nr
But we know all her suicides are fake.
D[F/A]addy only s[Dm6]tares into the d[F/A]istance[Dm6]
There's o[F/A]nly so much m[Dm6]ore that he can t[E]ake.
[Esus4]Many miles a[Fmaj7]way something c[G6]rawls from the slime[Fmaj7]
E E? E
At the bottom of a dark Scottish lake.
[A]Another ind[C#m7]ustrial ugly m[D]orning[Dsus2]
[A]The factory belches f[C#m7]ilth into the s[D]ky.[Dsus2]
[A]He walks unh[C#m7]indered through the p[D]icket lines t[Dsus2]oday,
[A]He doesn't t[C#m7]hink to wonder w[D]hy.[Dsus2]
A Bm7/11/nr B7/11/nr Bm7/11/nr
The secretaries pout and preen like cheap tarts in a red light street,
A Bm7/11/nr B7/11/nr Bm7/11/nr
But all he ever thinks to do is watch.
And e[F/A]very single m[Dm6]eeting with his so-c[F/A]alled superior[Dm6]
Is a hum[F/A]iliating k[Dm6]ick in the crotch.[E]
[Esus4]Many miles a[Fmaj7]way something c[G6]rawls to the surface[Fmaj7]
E E? E
Of a dark Scottish lake.
( Play the intro again 4 times singing "Yeee-ooo-ooo" )
Another working day has ended.
Only the rush hour hell to face.
Packed like lemmings into shiny metal boxes.
Contestants in a suicidal race.
Daddy grips the wheel and stares alone into the distance,
He knows that something somewhere has to break.
He sees the family home now looming in the headlights,
The pain upstairs that makes his eyeballs ache.
[Esus4]Many miles a[Fmaj7]way there's a s[G6]hadow on the door[Fmaj7]
E E?
Of a cottage on the shore
E E? E E? E?? E? E E? E E? E+11
Of a dark Scottish lake

I play it slightly different. Opening riff is the same but riff into verse I us
e:
 
 E -----------------
 B -----------------
 G -------5-7-------
 D ---7-7----------- (or could use 2 2; 0 2 up a string)
 A -----------------
 E -----------------

For the verses I use the riff:
PM........| PM...........|
 
 --------------------------------------------
 --------------------------------------------
 ----2-----2----4-4-4-4-2-----4---4-4-4-4-2--
 --------------------------------------------
 --0-----4-----------------------------------
 --------------------------------------------

2nd part of verse
 
 -------------------------
 -------------------------
 --6-6---7-7---8-8---7-7--
 --7-7---7-7---7-7---7-7-- repeat
 --0-0---0-0---0-0---0-0--
 -------------------------

3rd part of verse
PM.....| PM..........| PM..|
 
 -------------------------------------
 ----------5-5--------------5-5-------
 ------4-4-----4-4------3-3-----3-3---
 --0-0--------------0-0--------------- repeat
 -------------------------------------

 --9-9-9-7---9---9-9-9-7--
 --9-9-9-7---9---9-9-9-7--
 --9-9-9-7---9---9-9-9-7--

chorus
lightly palm muted
 
 -----------------------------------------------------
 -----------------------------------------------------
 ----2---2-2------2---2-2------4---4-4------2---2-2---
 --2---2-----2-/3---3-----3-/5---5-----5-/3---3-----3-
 -----------------------------------------------------
 -----------------------------------------------------

 ------------------------------------------------------
 ----1---1-1------2---2-2------1---1-1------2------5-7-
 --2---2-----2--2---2-----2--2---2-----2--2----7-7-----
 ------------------------------------------------------
 ------------------------------------------------------

I usually just bend 17 on the B string followed by sliding
the pick up and down the A and D strings for the solo break
back into the intro riff.
There is an extra 999/777 riff before the final chorus.
The outro riff I just play the chorus chords as full chords
 
 ----------------------------------
 ----------------------------------
 --2---------2---------4---------2-
 --2---------3---------5---------3- repeat and fade
 --0---------0---------0---------0-
 ----------------------------------

This was from memory so I might have screwed a couple of
numbers up. Hope this helps.
