This is my first attempt at transcribing a song. I hope you like it.

Intro:

(In the acoustic version Bixler plays the Cm as major and only strums the top four 
strings. You can do the same if you like.)

Cm/G   Eb/Bb   Bb   Ab 

Verse:

Cm/G              Eb/Bb    
     Step on the tracks
Bb                Ab 
     Feel you're alive
Cm/G              Eb/Bb
     It's not any worse 
Bb                Ab 
     Closer in time

Chorus: (all G's in this song are barres.) 

            Eb/Bb   Bb
It's like a Per --- fect picture of
F/C           Ab
     Ordinary life
            Eb/Bb   Bb 
You hit the bot --- tom
F/C                     Ab
     To see if you're alive
G                       Ab
     You'll be here some time
G                       Ab
     Traces   in  your  eyes

Verse (as above):

Bending backwards to look behind
Pushing forward, killing in time
You thought it would change in time
You thought it would change your mind
You thought you'd be first in line
You thought it would change your life

Chorus (as above):

It's like a perfect picture of
Ordinary life
You hit the bottom
To see if you're alive
You'll be here some time
Traces in your eyes

Bridge/Refrain:

(The strumming pattern changes here so listen to the record to get it down. This 
can be played many ways, the acoustic version is nothing like this.)

Cm/G   Eb/Bb   Bb  
 
Ab                                 Cm/G       Eb/Bb    Bb
You'll be better off not wasting your time
Ab                                    Cm/G       Eb/Bb    Bb
A sentimental heart is always last in line
Ab                                    G(barre)   Bb
A sentimental heart is always last in line

Chorus (as above):
It's like a perfect picture of
Ordinary life
You hit the bottom
To see if you're alive

            Eb/Bb   Bb
It's like a Per --- fect picture of
F/C           Ab
     Ordinary life
            Eb/Bb   Bb 
You hit the bot --- tom
F/C                   Ab
     To see if you're alive
F/C                   Ab
     To see if you're alive

Outro: 

Cm/G   Eb/Bb   F/C   Ab   
F/C    Ab      G     Cm/G
