Chords for Victim by Avenged Sevenfold

Standard tuning

I think it's pretty much right, let me know of any mistakes!

Intro: 
Cm
Eb, Cm X2
Cm

C                       Ab
House full of roses, a letter on the stairs
C                           Ab
A tape full of messages for anyone who cares
Bb                           Ab
Collage of broken words, and stories full of tears,
Bb                               Ab
Remembering your life, 'cause we wish that you were here
C                         Ab
Nothing is harder than to wake up all alone,
C                             Ab
Realize it's not OK, it's the end of all you've known
Bb                            Ab
Time keeps passing by, but it seems I'm frozen still,
Bb                         Ab
Scars are left behind, but some too deep to feel

Cm              
And some say this can't be real,
Ab                               Bb
And I've lost my power to feel tonight
               Eb            G
We're all just victims of a crime
Cm                  
When all's gone and can't be regained,
Ab                                  Bb
We can't seem to shelter the pain inside
               Eb           G     Cm
We're all just victims of a crime

C                              Ab
Some days you'll find me in a place I like to go,
C                                  Ab
Ask questions to myself 'bout the things I'll never know 
Bb                            Ab
What's left to find? 'Cause I need a little more
Bb                           Ab
I need a little time, can we even up the score?

Cm
Some say this can't be real,
Ab                               Bb
And I've lost my power to feel tonight
               Eb            G
We're all just victims of a crime
Cm
When all's gone and can't be regained,
Ab                                  Bb
We can't seem to shelter the pain inside
               Eb            G
We're all just victims of a crime

(1st solo)

Cm               Fm                             Eb
Nothing lasts forever, for all good things it's true
                     G                        Cm
I'd rather trade it all, while somehow saving you
                       Fm                          Eb
It must have been the season that threw us out of line
                G                              Eb
Once I stood so tall, now I'm searching for a sign

                      Bb                     Cm
So don't need your salvation with promises unkind
                 Fm                           Eb
And all the speculation, save it for another time
                     Bb                       Cm                           Fm
'Cause we all need a reason, a reason just to stay, and some just can't be bothered 
                        Cm 
To stick around another day

(2nd solo)

Cm
Some say this can't be real,
Ab                               Bb
And I've lost my power to feel tonight
               Eb           G
We've all been victims of a crime
Cm                          
When all is gone and can't be regained,
Ab                                Bb
We can't seem to shelter the pain inside
               Eb            G
We've all been victims of a crime

Eb           G
Victims of a crime
Eb               G
Living with this crime

Cm
I'm missing you X4

Eb, Cm, Eb, Cm, Eb, Cm, Bb, Cm (or something)

Sorry guys, a mistake I've been informed of - in the verse, instead of going C -> Fm it's C -> Ab, and it's the same in the chorus.
I've listened to the song again, and they both sound ok, it's just that the Ab sounds a little better :p

Thanks - I needed some help on the verse there. The Ab does sound alot more right than then Fm by the way. Also, i think the song is in either 1/2 step down or drop D, cause i definitely hear the low Eb in the chorus there. I'm going with half step down, i get the feeling they're gonna use a few more tunings on this album..

Also, off topic but how in the hell does shadows hit those high notes at the start and end of the song???

Any chance of the solos? I really dig the ones in this song. It seems like he actually thought out what he was gonna play instead of just shredding.

I want to post or [tab]
