ALNR has great music, this is one of my favorites off of their album.
I made up the name for the "C3" chord because I didn't know what it was called:). 
It's basically a "C" slid three frets down.

Intro: Em bar

Em bar
Words cut like diamonds through this window pane,
Bm
Voices crashing loudly, in what seems to drown the rain.
C 
And I speak in tounges and clench my fist,
C3                                   Em
In hopes to shine some light on this mess.

Em bar
You point your gun right in my face,
                               Bm 
Lucky for me you've never been one to shoot it straight
     C
So i dodge your bullets, cut and sway,
C3                              Em
Your words don't bother me so I say.

G                                     D
How much longer will i wait for these skies to turn from grey
Em7                                     Csus
And your lies will wind up only hurting you
           G                   D
But i will wait for the sun to go but return,
   Em7                              Csus
in light of all the pain you put me through,
Em bar
i wish you only knew.

Em bar
Now when poison is burning through my veins, 
         Bm
Well I'm hoping that you are to blame
     C 
This truth you find in me
    C3                              Em
I'm losing can't you see, and now I know
     Em bar
When guns go and leave you lying in the sand,
       Bm
Well I promise you I'll be the bigger man,
    C                    C3                        Em
and bite my tongue, just know that son I'm here to stay

             G                            D
And how much longer will I wait for these skies to turn from grey 
         Em                             C
And your lies will wind up only hurting you
           G                   D
But i will wait for the sun to go but return
   Em                               C
In light of all the pain you put me through,
C                         C3                     Em
The pain you put me through, the pain you put me through.

C        C3          Em       C            C3          Em
You know I will be a fool, to ever take my eyes off of you
C        C3          Em       C            C3          Em (ring out)
You know I will be a fool, to ever take my eyes off of you
