Relient K - Collapsible Lung tab

Alright guys, this is the way I play it, and it seems about 99% accurate to me, with
maybe a few bumps here and there compared to the recording, but it still sounds pretty
solid. The only notes I'll add are that there is a difference in the first and second
verses (it switches from D A Bm to D A Bm F#m with a change in rhythm), so watch out for that.
It is necessary because one is a fingered lead and the other is when the rhythm guitar
comes in. Also, I'll point out that I've written these mainly as bar chords (because
that's how Relient K plays it), but to make it easier to read during the riff, and in 
case you would like to change the fingering of each chord (i.e. a variance or power 
chords), I've
written each chord above the tab. Lastly, I've written the lyrics briefly in each
section to keep it easy to follow, but if you don't know the rhythm already, you might 
want to
listen to the song while you play a few times to match up the lyrics. Anything else 
you'll need to know about playing the song is written below. Thanks guys! Have fun playing
this great song, and feel free to give me any feedback: good or bad! :)

And to the UG officials, I've submitted this and a chord sheet twice, bring rejected.
However, this one really should be on the website as to the other 2 that somehow got
approved were not very accurate. If you listen to the song, and then play the other
uploaded tabs/chord sheets, they're far off from the real song several times. Not to 
sound douchey,
but this one is just about perfect
