Near the end he walks from C to Em; to do this, incorporate picking the low C note 
[A string, 3rd fret], to the B right under it [A string, 2nd fret], and then G 
[low E string, 3rd fret] into your strumming, followed by Em, with a strong accent 
on the open E. It isn't required but it sounds really nice the way it follows the 
vocals, and gives the song somewhat of a signature sound.

Intro: Em-G

Em              G
This place is a prison
Em                          G  
And these people aren't your friends
Em                      G
Inhaling thrills through twenty dollar bills
D
As the tumblers are drained
                       C
And then flooded again and again

Dsus4-Em-G  x2

Em                    G
There's guards at the on ramps
Em           G
Armed to the teeth
Em
And you may case the grounds
            G
From the Cascades to Puget Sound
D
But you are not permitted to leave

C                    Dsus4
I know there's a big world out there
        Em                G
Like the one that I saw on the screen
C                 Dsus4
In my living room late last night
       Em                 C
It was almost too bright to see
                    Dsus4
And I know that it's not a party
      Em            C
If it happens every night
                           Dsus4
Pretending there's glamour and candelabra
Em
As you're drinking by candlelight

Em-Dsus4-

C                          WALK  -  TO  -  Em    Dsus4
What does it take to get a drink in this place?
C                               Em 
What does it take, how long must I wait?	

[repeat to end]
