Guitar is mixed really low in this one, but I've tried my best!

intro: hi-hat, keyboard riff x2
bass enters... play this riff twice:

E--------7---|
B------8-----|
G----9-------|
D--7---------|
A------------|
E------------|

main bass/drum rhythm kicks in, riff is as follows (play twice) - bass root notes
alternate between A and G for this section:

E--9------9------8-----8----7-----7-----6-----6-|
B----10-----10-----7----------8-----8-----5-----|
G-------9------------8----------9-----------6---|
D-----------------------------------------------|
A-----------------------------------------------|
E-----------------------------------------------|

then: A E D C

     A                    E
They crucify you when you get it wrong
     D                        C
When things are fine they put you ahead
     A                      E
They laugh at you with your trousers down
     D                            C
They pick the stones and aim them at your head
A             E              D                C
When you're alive they won't care what you've said
A           E                D              C
What you deserve and all the blood you've bled


(play intro riff x2)

A                       E
Doesn't matter what you try to hide
    D                          C
The sun comes out and then the truth is read
     A                     E
Your fans'll love you when you're alive
        D                       C
But the wreaths are laid by the rest instead
A           E                D                C
When you're alive they won't care what you've said
A        E                   D            C
What you deserve and all the blood you've bled


(bass root notes appear above):

  Cos everybody loves you when you're dead
      (A)  (G)            (E)
E-----------7-------------------2----------|
B---------8-------------------3------------|
G-------9-------------------4--------------|
D-----7-------------------2----------------|<- play twice

E-------0-----------------------------------|
B-----1-----------------------1-------------|

intro riff (guitar is mixed really low here, so it's going to take some time to
figure out).

A5 G5 A5 G5 (x2)

A5           G5              A5               G5
When you're alive they won't care what you've said
A5         G5                A5        G5
What you deserve and all the blood you bled
       A            E               D        C
You'll turn in your grave at what's gonna be said
       A       E       D  C
You'll finally be appreciated
    A    E              D           C
Cos everybody loves you when you're dead
A    E              D           C
Everybody loves you when you're dead



ending (unsure of this bit):


  (A)   (G)    (E)    (D)    (C)   (Bb)

B-----8------6------3------------------------|
G---9------7------4--------5------3------1---|
