Lyrics..

Intro: G Em7 Cadd9 Cadd9 x2

G            Em7             Cadd9
Sorry Im not out tonight, my pockets feel like holes
         G             Em7            Cadd9
I've got nothing I can offer you as I sit here in the cold
       G               Em7         Cadd9
It's a story I've been telling for longer than I know
Am        C 
Where did all my riches go?

Fill
G   Em7   Cadd9   Cadd9   x2

   G            Em7           Cadd9
An inquest I am scared of cos I don't wanna know and I've been 
G              Em7     Cadd9
Walking off my worries hoping they won't follow me 
G          Em7        Cadd9
Around and around and around
         G           Em7       Cadd9
But they always find me

And I say

Am                     C
Why won't you leave me alone?
Am                     G
Why won't you leave me alone?

Fill
G   Em7   Cadd9   Cadd9   x4

    G            Em7          Cadd9
I'm terrified of answers so I chose just not to ask
       G             Em7             Cadd9
Surely everything is easier when you leave it in the past
           G              Em7           Cadd9
And I know that I've been waking almost every single night
G                 Em7                Cadd9
Dripping wet with deep regret locked in this endless fight
  
         G  Em7  Cadd9
And I am falling faster to the ground
G                Em7            Cadd9
Punched at every corner with my arms securely bound
         G           Em7          Cadd9
And I am waiting for existence to hold me by the hand
G                      Em7             Cadd9                        Am
Explain that all's not lost for me and make me understand that I am free

Cadd9                        Am
Make me understand that I am free
Cadd9           G
Make me understand 

Fill
G    Em7   Cadd9   Cadd9   x2

   G              Em7              Cadd9
My panic gets the upper hand as it tackles with me breath
          G              Em7                     Cadd9
And I can see this is no playground fight it's a battle to the death
         G              Em7              Cadd9
And I am choking on the concrete with my face pressed to the floor
    G              N/C
The bastards won't defeat me can't you hear me scream for more. 

         G  Em7  Cadd9
And I am falling faster to the ground
G                Em7            Cadd9
Punched at every corner with my arms securely bound
         G           Em7          Cadd9
And I am waiting for existence to hold me by the hand
G                      Em7             Cadd9                        Am
Explain that all's not lost for me and make me understand that I am free

C                            Am
Make me understand that I am free
C                            Am
Make me understand that I am free
C                            Am     
Make me understand that I am free
C
Make me understand

Enjoy!! =D

great tab, deserves five stars. But when he says "where did all my riches go" you forgot the last chord in that sequence, it's Am C then you slide the C up two frets to x5403x
