Birth of the Economic Hitman - Circa Survive
Off of the album "Violent Waves"

Most of this album is in D standard, this song does drop the low E string to a C.

So: C G C F A D (Drop C)

This is a long song, but in general pretty unchallenging. Definitely fun to play 
though, some cool chords. Any questions, feel free to message me or comment on the tab.
