"Looking For Strange" - KMFDM

I figured this out on my acoustic guitar, which is actually a pretty fun way
to play this song. :)  If you're playing on electric, just stick to power
chords and you'll be good to go. While not exactly the same notes as what
the guitar on the track may be playing, the chords match up to the track nicely.

These are the chords I use:

VS: D  - 5577xx
    Db - 4466xx
    D5 - xx023x

BR: (the "get ready set, all systems go" part)
    Gsus4  - 335533
    Bb     - 113331
    C      - 032010

CH: Gm - 355333
    Bb - 113331
    Dm - 000231

Sometimes on the Verses I will let the barred e and B strings ring out;
just sounds neat. :) The only other note is that in the lyrics, the second
line of the chorus switches every other time, noted in ( ). The only bit that
I'm a tad fuzzy on is the bridge right before the final chorus. There's a slight
tonal shift in there but the song has no guitar at that point so I am not
sure what it is. I just play D5 over the whole thing and it seems to work.
 Any ideas are welcome!

It's a pretty basic pattern - just listen to the track.

Beat by beat...

D       Db             D
Jetlag  limbo can't decide
Like molten rock I turn to stone
Take me outside myself, do it nice and slow
Somewhere beyond the great unknown

Gsus4          Bb           C
Get ready set,  All systems go
(Go on give it to me)


Gm          Bb       Dm        Dm
  Good life,    godlike, wanna see it from the inside
  Bound down,   gun shy,  looking for strange
 (Free-fall,   swan dive)

Gm                   Bb                       Dm              Dm
Go on, give it to me, don't stop, let me feel it, Looking for strange
Faster, harder, more, Last chance, no return      Looking for strange

Down here in the underbelly
No words are used to speak at all
The mind goes somewhere, comatose from lack of sleep
Will I ever learn to talk?

BR & CHORUS ("free fall, swan dive")

Echoes scream without a sound
Mirror pond reflects no face
Shell-shock, avalanche, dialed out, can't be reached
No fail-safe, panic at close range

Pre-CH & CHORUS ("bound down, gun shy")

Girls and boys, guns and noise, beat by beat
Be the best that you can be, best to your ability
Your future bright and ours to take, do exactly as we say
Step right up, sign right here
Your name in blood, have no fear

Gm        Bb     Dm       Dm
Good life, godlike, wanna see it from the inside
Free fall, swan dive, looking for strange

Gm   Bb   Dm    Dm
                Looking for strange

Gm                  Bb  Dm
Go on, give it to me,  Hey-ay, hey-ee yay  (come on, come on, come on, come on)

Looking for strange
