Seen Andrew play F#7 like this for MX Missles:

  F#7
E--0--|
B--2--|
G--3--|
D--4--|
A-----|
E-----|

And plays most bar chords on those four high strings.  The album version has 
the capo
way up but all live versions are without.


Intro:
Bm  F#  Bm  F#  G  D  F#  G  G  D  G  D  E  A  F#


Bm
those that will judge will say you're aloof
Bm                                                   E
but you know the truth is a seed you know what you need
              A      F#7
is a conflagration
           Bm
cause when I see your blood and the bits of your broken tooth
    Bm                                                    E
it gives me the proof that I need it's the proof that you bleed
               A                         D                     F#7  F#
and it's a revelation / yeah it's a revelation / it's a revelation

D                   G      Bm   A
I thought you were a life-sized paper doll
D                G     Bm   A
propped up in the hardware store
D                G     Bm    A
propped up on the front lawn watching the parade
         D                 G   Bm  A
of those legionnaires with two by fours
                            Bm   E
As they're marching off to wars
                              A     F#7
Yeah they're marching off to wars

Bm                            F#7
I didn't know what you were made of
Bm                                 F#7
color of your blood what you're afraid of
G                           D
are you made of calcium or are you carbon based
                 F#                    G
cause if you're made of calcium I'll have to take a taste
               G                       D
'Cause listen, calcium is deadly, but tender to the tooth
              G                               D
but it's one sure-fire way to know if you're mx-missile proof
   E                          A     A7
oh no, or if you're just aloof

Bm                                    F#7
and you were in the ground in late November
Bm                                F#7
though the leaves and earth were damp
        G                   D
did you think they would remember
F#                   G
how you almost made state champ
                 G                             D
and when you're running for the game against Alfonsus
           G                                    D
and you fell up on the ground and chipped your tooth
  E
listen, that might really have surprised us
    A                                        A7
to learn that maybe you weren't really mx-missiles proof

            D                         A
whoa, I thought you were a life-sized paper doll
           D                           A
and you're propped up in the hardware store
            D                           A
you were propped up on the front lawn watching the parade
         D                         A
of those legionnaires with two by fours
                            G   A  D
as they're marching off to wars
                              G  A  D
yeah they're marching off to wars
            G    D      A    D
Ohh they're marchinnnnnggg
