Chords relative to Capo on 4

The chords are strange. They are as far as I understand:

  Bm      Asus4add9    C#m7b9    F#

e-(0)-       -x-        -x-      -2-|
b--3--       -3-        -3-      -2-|
g--4--       -4-        -4-      -3-|
d--4--       -2-        -2-      -4-|
a--2--       -0-        -4-      -4-|
E--x--       -x-        -x-      -2-|

For the verse. And:

   Bm         G          D        F#

e-(0)-       -3-        -2-      -2-|
b--3--       -3-        -3-      -2-|
g--4--       -0-        -2-      -3-|
d--4--       -0-        -0-      -4-|
a--2--       -2-        -x-      -4-|
E--x--       -3-        -x-      -2-|

For the chorus. I will call the modified A and C#, A* and C#* just to save me typing 
None of this is based on me figuring anything out. I just put to a tab what TecumsehBand 
in this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUQlhKVEQws.

I didn't post the finger picking pattern because honestly i don't know it. You'd have to 
to Tecumseh about it. Strumming the chords is enough for me. Thanks to Tecumseh.


Intro:

Bm  A* C#*    X8

A*  C#*  A*   C#*   F#

Bm  A* C#*    X2

Bm           A*           C#*
I traveled though the atmosphere

Bm           A*           C#*
as a wall of feedback climbed

A*           C#*        A*      C#*
The pegs were gold, the band was old,

F#              Bm           A*           C#*
they played in half time


Bm           A*           C#*
Now every dream gets whittled down

Bm           A*           C#*
just like every fool gets wise

A*           C#*        A*      C#*
You will never reap of any seed

F#
deprived of sunlight


Bm           A*           C#*     X2

G                   Bm
So I have become the Middleman

G                   Bm
The gray areas are mine

D   G          F#     Bm
The in-between, the absentee

F#             Bm           A*           C#*
Is a beautiful disguise

Bm           A*           C#*
So I keep my footlights shining bright

Bm           A*           C#*
just like I keep my exits wide

A*           C#*        A*      C#*
'Cause I never know when it's time to go,

F#            Bm           A*           C#*
it's too crowded now inside

Bm           A*           C#*
The dead can hide beneath the ground

Bm           A*           C#*
and the birds can always fly

A*           C#*        A*      C#*
But the rest of us do what we must

F#
in constant compromise

Bm           A*           C#*   X2

G                   Bm
So I have become the Middleman

G                   Bm
The gray areas are fine

D   G          F#     Bm
The "I don't know," the "maybe so"

F#
Is the only real

F#
Is the only true

F#
Is the only real

Bm           A*           C#*
