I absolutely love this song and Marina and the Diamonds! This song comes off of "Electra 
Heart." You can hear the chord changes while listening to the song. Enjoy!

Verse 1:
Am C F

Everyday I feel the same,
Stuck, and I can never change
Sucked into a black balloon,
Spat into an empty room
Was it really worth it?
Did I really deserve it?
It happens when you're hurtin'
It cut me at the surface

Dm
Of my heart
Of my heart-art-art

Chorus:
Am G Dm F

I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
Only A-live-live-live-live
When I pretend-tend-tend-tend
That I have died-died-died-died-died-died

Am G Dm C

I haven't lived life
I haven't lived love
Just a bird's eye view
From the sky above
I'm dead-dead-dead-dead
I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
Dead

Verse 2:
Am C F

Got bubble wrap around my heart
Waiting for my life to start
But everyday it never comes
Permanently at square one
When it's late at night
I'm so dissatisfied
The weight of an empty life
Will lessen in the moonlight

Dm
In the light
In the light

Chorus:
Am G Dm F

I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
Only A-live-live-live-live
When I pretend-tend-tend-tend
That I have died-died-died-died-died-died

Am G Dm C

I haven't lived life
I haven't lived love
Just a bird's eye view
From the sky above
I'm dead-dead-dead-dead
I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
Dead

Bridge:
C Em F G Am

I lay back in a glittering mist
And I think of all the men I could have kissed
I haven't lived my life, I haven't lived love
Just a birds eye view from, from up above

Chorus:
Am G Dm F

I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
Only A-live-live-live-live
When I pretend-tend-tend-tend
That I have died-died-died-died-died-died

Am G Dm C

I haven't lived life
I haven't lived love
Just a bird's eye view
From the sky above
I'm dead-dead-dead-dead
I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
Dead

Am G Dm F

I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
Only A-live-live-live-live
I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
Only A-live-live-live-live
I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
Only A-live-live-live-live

Am G Dm C

I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
I'm living dead-dead-dead-dead
Dead

Chord placement for the bridge please? I can't figure it out for the life of me >-<

@danascully: the chord placement in the bridge is a little bit tricky. It goes like this:

the bridge consists of a 4 measure sequence repeated four times

the C chord gets a full measure (4 counts), and the Em chord gets a full measure as well. The F and G chords both get a half of a measure of value (2 counts) and then the Am gets one full measure (4 counts) to round it out.

Visually, it would look like this:
C Em F G Am
I lay back in a (rest) glittering mist and I,
C Em F G Am
think of all the men I, (rest) I could have kissed.
