Ab              F#

Buried beneath this house`

My spirit cries and dies again
F#         F#(9)
Out back a monster wheres
   C#       B         Ab
A cloak of persian leather
F#         F#(9)
Behind the TV screen
C#          B        Ab
I've fallen to my knees

(All chords in the pre chorus and chorus are down strokes, with a quick up in between 
switching chords. You can here the rthymn in the song)
              Ab
I said you've got me where you want me
    B           C#
And dammit I can't turn away
    Ab                      F#                C#
I'm hanging by a thread and Im feeling like a fool
    Ab                        B          C#
I'm stuck here in between the shadows of my yesterday
    Ab    
I want to get away
  F#          C#
I need to get away

|---------|

Chorus:

Ab      F#
Now you know
B                C#               Ab
Yeah, you got my back against the wall
F#       B             C#             Ab
Oh gosh, I aint got no other place to hide
F#                 B         C#
chained down, like a sitting duck
                 Ab
Just waiting for the fall
F#                 B           C#           Ab
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall

Verse 2:

Intro x 1/2

Ab         F#      
   Blanket of silence
F#(9)            C#       B        Ab
makes me want to sink my teeth in deep
         F#
Burn all the evidence
  F#(9)  C#    B     Ab
A fabricated disbelief
F#            F#(9)      C#        B         Ab
Pull back the curtains take a look into your eyes
 F#           F#(9)        C#           B      Ab
My tongue has now become a platform for your lies
