This is a great song, and there are too few tabs for it.
I think tjcoleman95 had the right idea on the solos but got the strings mixed up.
I know the solos aren't exactly correct but they are in key so they shouldn't clash.
For the walkdown I changed the position of the chords to make it easier for me to play.
Also in the second verse the acoustic guitar plays arpeggios but I'm not sure how 
that goes as of now.

Tuning:Standard EADGBe

Verse:
__________________________________________________________________________
F#   Abmin   Bbmin Ebmin          B

Ever night I say a prayer, in the hopes that


          C#

there's a heaven

    F#   Abmin   Bbmin   Ebmin        B

but everyday I'm more confused as the saints


          C#

turn into sinners


        Ebmin*** (This is a walkdown with Ebmin)

All the heroes and legends I knew as a child


     B                  C#

have fallen to idols of clay


      F#        Abmin Bmin     Ebmin     B

And I feel this empty space inside, so afraid


                  C#

that I've lost my faith
______________________________________________________________________
Chorus:
______________________________________________________________________
            F#      C# B

Show me the way


            F#      C# B

Show me the way


        F#             Bbmin     Ebmin

Take me tonight to the river and wash my

            Abmin    C#

illusions away

            F#

show me the way

____________________________________________________________________________
Then you just play through the second verse the same way.  After that the 
distorted guitar comes in.

(*)This is something that I think I hear and that I throw in the chorus. It's a very quick and subtle pick slide. ************************************ | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note | b Bend | pb Pre-bend | r Bend release | pbr Pre-bend release | brb Bend release bend ************************************
