Usually you don't play chords in a bass. Not in songs like this at least. Couldn't find a tab for this. To play along, you just need to play (Acie or Trane might be able to add or change something, I did it pretty quickly):

Verse:

F# - First String, second fret.
C# - Second String, fourth fret.
G# - First String, fourth fret.

Prechorus:

C - Third Fret
C# - Second String, fourth fret.
D#

Chorus:

C#
F#

Then in that scream in the middle:

C#
G#
F - First String, first Fret
D#

Theres a million things you could do that could make the bass more interesting here. But i guess that if you don't have anyone to teach you a couple tricks you'll have to stick to playing the root notes.

Another tip. Make sure you are in tune.

Bro tip: Convince your bandmates not to play such a shitty song.
