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------------------------------|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! Ieuan Jones
