Comments: When I first heard that these guys were making a CD, 
I was pretty shocked. I thought this CD wouldn't sound the same 
without Layne Staley, which is true, but this CD still has the 
same Alice In Chains feel to it. This song really blew me away 
and I have been listening to it ever since. From what I have 
seen in a live video, this it what William DuVall plays in 
the song. 

If there's any corrections that need to be made, let me know.

Thank you and please rate or comment.

      I don't wanna feel no more

Dsus2         Bsus4       Asus2      E
      It's easier to keep falling
Dsus2    Bsus4       Asus2      E
      Imitations are pale
Dsus2          Bsus4     Asus2 
      The emptiness of tomorrows 
      C#m7            Dsus2      Bsus4 
      haunted by your ghost
Asus2    E                  Dsus2      Bsus4 
Lay down black gives way to blue 
Asus2    E          Dsus2      Bsus4 
Lay down I remember you

Dsus2        Bsus4       Asus2      E
      Fading out by design 
Dsus2         Bsus4        Asus2      E
      Consciously avoiding changes 
Dsus2          Bsus4          Asus2      E
      Curtains drawn now it's done 
Dsus2      Bsus4      Asus2 
      Silencing all tomorrows, 
      C#m7           Dsus2      Bsus4 
      forcing a good-bye

Asus2    E                  Dsus2      Bsus4 
Lay down black gives way to blue 
Asus2    C#m7          Dsus2 
Lay down I'll remember you

The chords are all good except the Dsus2, he mixed the fingering up, it's actually 2,3 not 3,2 switch that and you have it perfect (it's a Dmaj but with the high E open rather than on the second fret and play the A string). also a little weird how he wrote the tuning as D# rather than Eb but it's all the same.
