Verse 1:(play the chords like you did in the intro)(for best effect use
 slight delay if electric)
Ab              F#
   Tonight I'll have a look
    F#(9)  C#      B7     Ab
And try to find my face again
       F#            F#(9)
Buried beneath this house`
   C#      B7       Ab
My spirit screams and dies again
F#         F#(9)
Out back a monster wears
   C#       B7         Ab
A cloak of Persian leather
F#         F#(9)
Behind the TV screen
C#          B7        Ab
I've fallen to my knees

Chorus 1:
pretty much all in the post and chorus are downs with a quick up in the middle. sounds 
without the ups though.


              Ab
I said you've got me where you want me again!
    B           C#
And--I can't turn away
    Ab                      F#                C#
I'm hanging by a thread and I'm 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

Verse 2:

Ab         F#
   Blanket of silence
F#(9)            C#       B7        Ab
makes me want to sink my teeth in deep
         F#
Burn all the evidence
  F#(9)  C#    B7     Ab
of fabricated disbelief
F#            F#(9)      C#        B7         Ab
Pull back the curtains took a look into your eyes
 F#           F#(9)        C#           B7      Ab
My tongue has now become a platform for your lies


Chorus 2:
              Ab
I said you've got me where you want me again!
    B           C#
And--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

Post-Chorus 1:

Ab      F#
Now-- you know
B7                C#               Ab
Yeah, you got my back against the wall
F#       B7             C#             Ab
Oh gosh, I aint got no other place to hide
F#                 B7         C#
chained down, like a sitting duck
                 Ab
Just waiting for the fall
F#                 B7           C#           Ab
You know, yeah you got my back against the wall


Verse 3:
 Ab         F#
Deep in the jungle
F#(9)          C#       B7      Ab
Camouflaged by all the fallen leaves
        F#
A hand holds up the sky
F#(9)  C#    B7     Ab
While shamefully I make my plea
     F#
The alters callin'
F#(9)    C#        B7         Ab
But my legs won't seem to stand
     F#
Guess I'm a coward
F#(9)    C#        B7       Ab
Scared to face the man I am


Chorus 3:
              Ab
I said you've got me where you want me again!
    B           C#
And--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
