Intro: B

Verse:

B
It's only when your poison spins into the life you'd hoped to live
                                                A
and suddenly you wake up in a shaken panic now
B
You had set me up like a lamb to slaughter

Garbo as a farmer's daughter

Unbelievable, the gospel according to who?
             A
I lay right down

Chorus:

F#
All your sad and lost apostles
A               E
hum my name and flare their nostrils
F#                                 A      A/Ab/G/F#
Choking on the bones you tossed to them
F#
now I'm not one to sit and spin
         A                 E
because living well's the best revenge
D           A              E
Baby, I am calling you on that

Verse:

B
Don't turn your talking points on me.

History will set me free
                                                        A
The future is ours and you don't even rate a footnote now!
B
So who's chasing you? Where did you go?

You disappear mid-sentence

In a judgement crisis I see my in and go for it
              A
You weakened shill.

Chorus:

F#
All your sad and lost apostles
A                E
hum my name and flare their nostrils
F#                                   A   A/Ab/G/F#
Choking on the bones you tossed to them
F#
now I'm not one to sit and spin
          A                  E
because living well is the best revenge
D                A              E
and baby, I am calling you on that

Verse:

B
You savor your dying breath

I forgive but I don't forget

You work it out, let's hear that argument again
                       A
Camera three... GO NOW!

Chorus:

F#
All your sad and lost apostles
A                 E
hum my name and flare their nostrils
F#                                   A  Ab/G/F#
Choking on the bones you tossed to them
F#
now I'm not one to sit and spin
           A                E
because living well is the best revenge
D                A              E
and baby, I am calling you on that
D              A            E
Baby, I am calling you on that
D              A            E
Baby, I am calling you on that

End on B

Very good overall. A couple of suggestions:
1. At the changes to the A chord in the verses (e.g. on "now" and "down" in verse 1), play A - E - A - E.
2. In the chorus on "them", you can eliminate the A/Ab/G/F#.

You'll want to use open chords instead of bar chords.

with the B chord being

x244oo

and on the D A E, it should be D A B so it goes right into the picky thingy
