I'm pretty certain that this is correct,
I've listened to the song over and over to get it right,
the chords are fairly easy, so too is the lead bits during the chorus.
Enjoy!

Introduction:

Em D

Verse 1:

Em                                 C
 It's easy to see, it's easy to see
       D                                G   (G/F)
 To see only white where colour should be

Verse 2:

Em                                   C
 It's easy to feel, it's easy to feel
         D                                     G   (G/F)
 But it's not good enough, even though it's real


Chorus (guitar 1)

Bm         Am
 Oh, please stay awake
        D                            G  (G/F)
And then we can drink some Ocean Spray
Bm         Am
 Oh, please stay awake
        D                            G  (G/F)
And then we can drink some Ocean Spray


Chorus: (Guitar 2)

this is quite faint in the background,
and is in essence just broken chords,
but nonetheless I have tabbed.

e|-----------10----------------------7-8-7----------|
B|-------12----12----------------10--------10-------|
G|----11---------11------------9--------------9-----|
D|--9--------------9---------7------------------7---|
A|-------------------9------------------------------|

G|---------------7----7----------------12------12-----12-----12-|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------10------10-----10------10----|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------|




Bridge: (guitar 2)


G# F G(2) G(2)


For the second chorus,
there is a slight change in the latter part of the riff
played by guitar 2, where it goes:

e|---10----10---------------------------------------------------|
B|-----10----10----10----10b11r8--------------------------------|
G|---------------7----7--------------------------12--11--9--7---|
D|-------------------------------------9-----9------------------|
A|----------------------------------10----10--------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------|


other than that, the chords for the verses and
choruses remain the same throughout,
and likewise with the riffs and the bridge chords.

The lyrics for the rest of the song are below:

It's easy to breathe, it's easy to grieve
To breathe only air where life should be
It's easy to laugh, it's easy to cry
To cry so so hard that it can't be denied

Oh, please stay awake
And then we can drink some Ocean Spray
Oh, please stay awake
And then we can drink some Ocean Spray

Oh, please stay awake
And then we can drink some Ocean Spray
Oh, please stay awake
And then we can drink some Ocean Spray

And that's a very underrated song by a very underrated band for you.
I hope this is accurate, any feedback as to improvements
are welcome in the comments!
