This song is brand-new, and it's freaking catchy. 
Also, I love Amanda F-ing Palmer, so I figured I'd put up the chords for this song:

                         C       Em
I wouldn't kill to win a war
                            C       Em
I don't get what they do it for
                      C       Em
It's all so terribly vague
                          D
I see the pictures from a thousand years of battle
                        C       Em
And I think it's such a bore
                          C       Em
I walk New Orleans with a knife
                          C       Em
Like Mackie hidden out of sight
                          C       Em
But I'd be useless if they jumped
                           D
I'm really not the killing type

A5
I'm not the killing type
I'm not the killing type
I'm not, I'm not
I'm not the killing type, I'm not

                           C      Em
I've got a picture of your mum
                            C       Em
Before the war when she was young
                            C       Em
She's got an etching to her right
                              D
I think it's funny that she's looking to the left and it's her son
                           C       Em
I wouldn't kill to get you back
                         C       Em
And I've officially been asked
                          C      Em
I couldn't kill to save a life
                          D
I'd rather die a peaceful piece of shit-bait, shame-filled coward, thanks

A5
I'm not the killing type
I'm not the killing type
I'm not, I'm not
I'm not the killing type, I'm not

                             C       Em
But I would kill to make you feel
                              C       Em
I don't mean kill someone for real
                          C       Em
I couldn't do that, it is wrong
                      A5
But I can say it in a song, a song, a song
  
                  C
And I'm saying it NOW
              Em7
I'm saying it SO
                  D                                   A5
Even if you never hear this song, somebody else would know
              C
I'm saying it NOW
              Em7
I'm saying it SO
                  D                                  A5
Even if you never hear this song, somebody else will know, know, know, know

C
I just can't explain how good it feels
D
I just can't explain how good it feels
C
I just can't explain how good it feels
D
I just can't describe

                          C        Em
I once stepped on a dying bird
                        C
It was a mercy killing, I couldn't sleep for a week
Em
I kept feeling its breaking bones
  C
I heard
Em                           C
   That if you see a star at night
Em                             C
   And the conditions are just right
Em                           C
   And you are standing on a cliff
Em                                  D
   Then you can close your eyes and make a wish, and take a step, and change somebody's life

A5
I'm not the killing type
I'm not the killing type
I'm not, I'm not
I'm not the killing type, I'm not

                            C       Em
But I would kill to make you feel
                              C       Em
I'd kill to move your face an inch
                       C
I see you staring into space
                        D
I wanna stick my fist into your mouth and twist your arctic heart

                             C       Em
Yes, I would kill to make you feel
                              C       Em
I don't mean kill someone for real
                          C       Em
I couldn't do that, it is wrong
                      A5
But I can say it in a song, a song, a song
       
                  C
And I'm saying it NOW
              Em7
I'm saying it SO
                  D                                   A5
Even if you never hear this song, somebody else would know
              C
I'm saying it NOW
              Em7
I'm saying it SO
                  D                                   A5
Even if you never hear this song, somebody else would know, know, know, know

C
I just can't explain how good it feels
D
I just can't explain how good it feels
C
I just can't explain how good it feels
D
I just can't describe, -ibe, -ibe

Em
DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE
A5
I'm not the killing type


*Note: For this song, many of the chords aren't full chords, just power chords, 
but it's easy to figure out when they are and when they aren't.

**Edit: Although I put the A5 as an Am originally, reviewing it, it sounds like an 
undefined chord. Hopefully that sounds closer. Thank you to ShiversTheNinja.

The rights to this song belong to Amanda F-ing Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra.

Damn, you're fast! Good on you! They're close, but not perfect. The Am feels... off somehow. I'm sure that's what lead the two other voters to give it four stars as well. (Or maybe one gave it five and the other gave it three. Hell if I know. That would be weird though since it's SO close.) Anyone have any better ideas to replace the Am??

Hmm. It did seem a bit off, but it was closest to my ear. I'll look into it again.
