This song is MY personal take on this song, and it is not an acoustic version. It 
is a version of the 
original meant to be played acoustically with one guitar. This song is eaiser to 
play if you learn it 
in chunks of simillar chord progressions. The C#m in most of the chorusesand other 
parts is replacable
with the A5. This is not as accurate, but far easier to play. Be your own judge-- Skill Vs. Sound 

**EDIT: 6-22-10** Fixed some minor technical problems and changed some chord names.

Chords:
~~~~~~~~~~~E A D G B e
Amaj7/sus5:X 4 6 4 0 0 (reffered to as Amaj7)
~~~~~A5sus:0 0 2 4 0 0 (A5)
~~~~Bbsus2:0 2 1 4 0 0 (Bsus2)
~~~~~~~A13:0 4 2 4 0 0
~~~~~F#/Bb:6 4 4 6 X X (F#)
~~~~C#min9:0 4 2 1 0 0 (C#m)

[Verse 1]
                    Amaj7
I've got another confession to make
            A5  
I'm your fool.
                      Amaj7
Everyone's got their chains to break
           A5
Holdin' you.

[Pre-Chorus]
                 Bsus2              A13
Were you born to resist or be abused?

[Chorus]
                       A5              Bsus2                    A13
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
                       A5              Bsus2                    A13
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

[Post-Chorus]
C#m              Bsus2         A13
Are you gone and onto someone new?

[Verse 2]
                      C#m
I needed somewhere to hang my head
             A5
Without your noose
                           C#m
You gave me something that I didn't have
           A5
But had no use

[Pre-Chorus]
                       Bsus2
I was too weak to give in
               A13
Too strong to lose

[Verse 3]
                  C#m
My heart is under arrest again
            A5
But I break loose
                             C#m
My head is giving me life or death
            A5
But I can't choose

[Pre-Chorus]
                        Bsus2
I swear I'll never give in
      A13
I refuse

[Chorus]
                       A5              Bsus2                    A13 F#
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
                       A5              Bsus2                    A13 F#
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

[Chorus 2]
(If you listen to the track, the high part is just an octave of the bass note, 
so you can still play the chord)
                       C#m
Has someone taken your faith?
              Bsus2
Its real, the pain you feel
        A13   
You trust, you must
    F#
Confess
                       C#m             Bsus2                   A13
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
F#
Oh...

[Breakdown and solo]
(Beh, just make this up. Make it sound nice to you)
C#m Bsus2 C#m Bsus2 

A5"  Bsus2"
Oh...Oh...
C#m"  F#
Oh...Oh...

[Chorus 3]
                       C#m
Has someone taken your faith?
              Bsus2
Its real, the pain you feel
     A13                 F#
The life, the love you'd die to heal
    C#m                    Bsus2
The hope that starts the broken hearts
     A13
You trust, you must
 F#
Confess

[Chorus]
                       A5              Bsus2                    A13     F#
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
                       A5              Bsus2                    A13     F#
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

[Verse 4]
(Played just like the first)
                    Amaj7
I've got another confession my friend
        A5
I'm no fool
                     Amaj7
I'm getting tired of starting again
          A5
Somewhere new
                 Bsus2        A13
Were you born to resist or be abused?
                        Bsus2
I swear I'll never give in
     A13
I refuse

[Chorus]
                       A5              Bsus2                    A13  F#
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
                       A5              Bsus2                    A13  F#
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

[Chorus 2]
                       C#m
Has someone taken your faith?
              Bsus2
Its real, the pain you feel
        A13   
You trust, you must
    F#
Confess
                       C#m             Bsus2                   A13
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
F#
Oh...

[Outro] I would reccomend leaving this out or just playing the first verse without 
words, however if you do wan to, 
just play the C#min9 in a funky rythym.

Thank you!
I actually found the Band tab for this song in a book and I did get it right for including some of the bass movements. Not bad for earing it, eh?
