This is easily my favorite song on the new album.
Thanks to David with some help in the verse. 

Notes:

Verse - It is finger picked. I tried to get it as close as I could. 
There might be a couple notes that I missed since he pick the notes fast. 
But I put down the basic layout.

Chorus - This is pretty close. A lot closer than my last tab of this song. 
Just listen to the song for when to play each chord.

Bridge - Just some octave riffs . . . sounds like some Zeppelin influence.

Other - There are a lot of fills in this song. I tried to add as many as I could. 
Anything else you want to know you can email me.

Lyrics - 

I lie awake on a long, dark night
I can’t seem to tame my mind
Slings and arrows are killing me inside
Maybe I can’t accept the life that’s mine
No, I can’t accept the life that’s mine

Simple living is my desperate cry
Been trading love with indifference
Yeah it suits me just fine
I try to hold on but I’m calloused to the bone
Maybe that’s why I feel alone
Maybe that’s why I feel so alone

Me . . . I’m rusted and weathered
Barely holding together
I’m covered with skin that peels 
And it just won’t heal

The sun shines and I can’t avoid the light
I think I’m holding on to life too tight
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
Sometimes I feel like giving up
Sometimes I feel like giving up

Me . . . I’m rusted and weathered
Barely holding together
I’m covered with skin that peels 
And it just won’t heal

The day reminds me of you
The night hides your truth
The earth is a voice
Speaking to you
Take all this pride
And leave it behind
Because one day it ends
One day we die
Believe what you will
That is your right
But I choose to win
So I choose to fight
To fight
