Main Riff:
    Bb                Eb               Bb               F

*Note: The second Bb in this sequence is played exactly the same whenever this riff 
in the song. However, the rhythm guitar part and the other background parts have a G in the 
at some points in the song, making the actual overall chord a Gm7.

VERSE: (main riff)
Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems
Better put ‘em in quotations

CHORUS: (main riff)
Say what you need to say (8x)

               Bb       Eb      Gm      F
Walkin' like a one man army
                   Bb    Eb           Gm    F
Fightin' with the shadows in your head
               Bb       Eb      Gm      F
Living out the same old moment
                 Bb     Eb         Gm      F
Knowing you’d be better off instead...  if you could only

             Bb       Eb
Say what you need to say
             Gm      F
Say what you need to say  (4x)

Cm       Eb             F
Have no fear for giving in
Cm       Eb             F
Have no fear for giving over
Cm          Eb              F
You better know that in the end
It’s better to say too much
Than never to say what you need to say again

(main riff)

VERSE: (main riff)
Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open

CHORUS (different than first two):
             Gm      Bb
Say what you need to say
Say what you need to say... (repeat and fade out)

Bb:  688766

The chords are right, and they sound good, but the intro is wrong. I will work it out and then repost it (you have the right notes though). However I think that is is played on a mandolin anyway. Does anyone know if this is true?
