[VERSE 1:]
Amadd9
Keep you in the dark
              F#m7-5     Fmaj
You know they all        pretend
Amadd9
Keep you in the dark
          F#m7-5     Fmaj
And so it all        began
Am
Send in your skeletons
                             F#m7-5     F5
Sing as their bones go marching in... again
Am                   
The need you buried deep
                              F#m7-5
The secrets that you keep are ever ready
F5
Are you ready?
Am
I'm finished making sense

Done pleading ignorance
        F#m7-5   F5
That whole       defense
Am
Spinning infinity, boy

The wheel is spinning me
     F#m7-5        F5
It's never-ending, never-ending
D
Same old story


[CHORUS:]
Amadd9
What if I say I'm not like the others?
                                   F#m7-5
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?

You're the pretender
Fmaj
What if I say that I'll never surrender?

Amadd9
What if I say I'm not like the others?
                                   F#m7-5
What if I say I'm not just another one of your plays?

You're the pretender
Fmaj                                   D
What if I say that I'll never surrender? (2x)


[VERSE 2:]
In time or so i'm told 
I'm just another soul for sale... oh, well
The page is out of print
We are not permanent
We're temporary, temporary
Same old story


[CHORUS] (2x).


REPEAT:
e|-----------------------|
B|-----------------------|
G|---------2------------2|
D|22-44-55---2--2-44-55- |
A|-----------------------|
E|-----------------------|

AND SING:
I'm the voice inside your head
You refuse to hear
I'm the face that you have to face
Mirrored in your stare
I'm what's left, I'm what's right
I'm the enemy
I'm the hand that will take you down
Bring you to your knees
So who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?


Amadd9
Keep you in the dark
              F#m7-5   Fmaj
You know they all      pretend


[CHORUS.]


Am
So who are you?
Yeah, who are you?
Yeah, who are you?

it works well but i think it would be better if you used AM in the chorus instead of Amadd9

Maybe could be useful to the others who use to play this song acoustic and only with chords.
I play F#m7-5 like this (200120) and Fmaj like this (033210), sounds nice to me
