This is one of Placebo's best songs and I hope this tab will do it justice.  Brian uses his Gretsch G6128 for this song.  As with all my tabs, I will mix it up between 

STANDARD PLACEBO TUNING: F  Bb  Eb  Ab  C  F  (or capo on 1st fret)

 Intro / Verse (synth for guitar / distorted (live) or clean (studio)  
 guitar):
 F|-------3---5---6----|
 C|--6--3---3---3---3--|
Ab|--------------------|
Eb|--------------------|
Bb|--------------------|
 F|--------------------| Repeat that for entire verse

 C|------------------|
Ab|------------------|
Eb|--x-x-x-x-7-------|

 Down strokes for the "x", up and down for the Bb power chord.

*: For the final chorus, repeat chorus twice, which will then lead into:

 Outro:
 F|-------------|
 C|-------------|
Ab|--6------/7--|
Eb|--6(x5)--/7--|
Bb|--4------/5--|
 F|-------------|
 That D power chord has an irregular strumming pattern.  Watch Molko and  
 co. do the song live to get the idea.

 END ON:
 F|-----|
 C|-----|
Ab|--6--|
Eb|--6--|
Bb|--4--|
 F|-----|

 Lyrics:
 One last thing before I shuffle off the planet,
 I will be the one to make you crawl,
 So I came down to wish you an unhappy birthday,
 Someone call the ambulance,
 There's gonna be an accident.

 I'm comin' up on infra-red,
 There is no running that can hide you,
 Cause I can see in the dark,
 I'm comin' up on infra-red,
 Forget your running,
 I will find you.

 One more thing before we start the final face-off,
 I will be the one to watch you fall,
 So I came down to crash and burn your beggar's banquet,
 Someone call the ambulance,
 There's gonna be an accident.

 I'm comin' up on infra-red,
 There is no running that can hide you,
 Cause I can see in the dark,
 I'm comin' up on infra-red,
 Forget your running,
 I will find you,
 (I will find you)

 And the dark is running after you,
 That's right the dark is running after you,
 The dark is after you.

 Someone call the ambulance,
 There's gonna be an accident.

 I'm comin' up on infra-red,
 There is no running that can hide you,
 Cause I can see in the dark,
 I'm comin' up on infra-red,
 Forget your running,
 I will find you,
 Cause I can see in the dark,
 I'm comin' up on infra-red,
 There is no running that can hide you,
 Cause I can see int he dark,
 I'm comin up on infra-red,
 Forget your running,
 I will find you,
 I will find you,
 I will find you.

 And that's it!  Any questions, comments or compliments will be welcomed in
