Kay's version. Enjoy!
----------------------------------------------------

          G                D
I felt no guilt till I was caught
          Em
And I was told that I was guilty,
    C                         G          D
And even then I wasn't really sure, yeah yeah.
    C                G
The thing I felt was guilt itself
   D                      Em
Or maybe it was something else,
   C                               D
Frustration at the fact that I was ever caught at all.
         G           D
I told a lie, I multiplied it
       Em
By the time I realized it
    C                          G           D
I'd given up everything I ever loved, yeah yeah.
          C
Cause the thing you left
            G
When you're looking back,
       D                          Em
Is the pressure the feel that you have to act
     C
Yeah everything is clearer when
       D
You're looking at the past, oh no.

Em Am C D
Em Am C D

C                     G                          D
And I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too,
                                 Em                             C
They shouted, "Court should be adjourned!" Because the jury are fools.
                      G                        D
And the judge can't decipher his left from his right Or his right from his wrong.
C                              G
And I will bite the hand that thieves,
                           D
I will not turn the other cheek, this is no threat
        Em              C
It is a promise I will keep.
                       G
So what's the point pretending when we've seen behind
    D
the curtain and there's nothing much to see, oh yeah.

          G                D
I felt no pain till I was down,
          Em
And I was told that I was bleeding.
    C                         G          D
And even then I knew I wasn't done, yeah yeah.
           C
'Cause the scars I get
          G
They will just collect,
  D             Em
Insuring that I won't forget.
  C
Reminders of the battles
          D
That I've lost and that I've won
           G                 D
And I will fight 'til I have died
                      Em
Or all my enemies are allies
    C                                   G         D
And even then I will sleep with an open eye, yeah yeah.
           C                     G
'Cause the night is long and our foes are strong
      D                Em
But I know the road we travel on
   C
It only seems so dark
              D
Because we've almost reached the top, oh no.

Em Am C D
Em Am C D

C                     G                          D

G D C D

Em                C
And everyone will claim
          G               D
That they knew from the beginning.
Em              C
Exactly how it ends,
     G                  D
But they still just went on sinning.
Em
The sudden rush you feel
     C                        G
When realizing everything you know
                              D
Will fade away, it haunts you deep,
                             Em
But you won't want to let it go.
                       C
Someday we'll lose the war,
         G                     D
But 'til then we will dream of winning.

C          G
I won't forget,
               D
The things you said,
           Em                      C
When I was down and I was tired of it.
              G
The words you spoke,
                D*
They brought me home.
C                   G
When it was time to fight,
           D
I chose a side,
             Em                              C
But I knew in my heart that something didn't feel right.
                G
So I stood my ground,
                 D*
And waited for a sign.

And I don't care if I lose because my heroes did too,
                                 Em                             C

the curtain and there's nothing much to see.

Instead of going from "G" to "D" on the first line, it's actually a fairly simple progression Toh Kay uses in songs like Watch It Crash where he goes G, G with a Gb as the bass, then an Em, so it'd be like 320003, 220003, then 02200(3 or 0, personal preference). But the rest of it sounds pretty good

You are absolutely correct on the walking bass-line part from the G to Gb. unfortunately I'm not that great with tabbing things out, so I just use the main chords. Thank you!

I believe the proper expression would be like, "G, G/Gb, Em"
