G|----0--------| this is the first chord. i don't know what it's called so i will just write E. 

    E         C                   G                    D
Shadows settle on the place, that you left.
   E                    C                         G            D
Our minds are troubled by the emptiness.
    E                 C               G            D
Destroy the middle, it's a waste of time.
    E                    C                G              D
From the perfect start to the finish line.

[It just repeats from there.]

And if you're still breathing, you're the lucky ones.
'Cause most of us are heaving through corrupted lungs.
Setting fire to our insides for fun
Collecting names of the lovers that went wrong
The lovers that went wrong.

We are the reckless,
We are the wild youth
Chasing visions of our futures
One day we'll reveal the truth
That one will die before he gets there.

And if you're still bleeding, you're the lucky ones.
'Cause most of our feelings, they are dead and they are gone.
We're setting fire to our insides for fun.
Collecting pictures from the flood that wrecked our home,
It was a flood that wrecked this home.

And you caused it,
And you caused it,
And you caused it

Well I've lost it all, I'm just a silhouette,
A lifeless face that you'll soon forget,
My eyes are damp from the words you left,
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.
Ringing in my head, when you broke my chest.

And if you're in love, then you are the lucky one,
'Cause most of us are bitter over someone.
Setting fire to our insides for fun,
To distract our hearts from ever missing them.
But I'm forever missing him.

And you caused it,
And you caused it,
And you caused it

The chord names would actually be:
C (not E) - notes are E C G - so it's just an inversion of C major
F (notes are F C A)
Next one is interesting, it's just A C C, so not actually a chord, but an interval - in this case, a minor 3rd. This would make sense since the song key is C major, so this interval is doing the role of the VI chord (which would normally be minor). You could call it Am for ease of reference, but technically it's an interval since the E is missing.
Finally, the last chord is G C B. Call it Gadd11 for reference, but again, it's missing the E.
So, peculiar voicing aside, you have a simple I IV VI V progression that repeats throughout the entire song. Simple, but then the nice ones usually are ;)

I think that E should be an Em
