There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Quite similar to Oedipus, chord wise. 
Kind of simplified to make sure it's playable on guitar.

Am           Cmaj7    Dm7           F
All of the prisoners serving life sentences
Am            Cmaj7     Dm7     E
Wait for the earth to suddenly shake
F                          Am           E           E7/G#
For the walls to somehow suddenly come crumbling, tumbling and
F                Am     E        E7/G#
For the bars to somehow magically break

Am                               Cmaj7
Aw, There's nothing wrong with them
         Dm7                F
That a thousand bucks can't fix
Am              Cmaj7            Dm7  E 
That a thousand arms can't hold do - own
F         Cmaj7          E             E7/G#
 In the ground they're tattooing the stones with
Dm7          F             E            E7/G#
Cusses like cavemen - your momma was here

                F                             C
But they want to run through the air with no barriers or obstacles
F                         C
Gunmen or guard dogs or priests
         F                          C
And to rise from the mud and start over and over
F                    {mute}
With the people all dead, ah ah ah

   Am              Cmaj7             Dm7             F
If Hans Christian Andersen could've had his way with me
   Am              Cmaj7                  Dm7     E
Then none of this shit would have ever gone do - own
F      Am         E       E7/G#     
In my cell I'm tattooing myself with
Dm7            F            E             E7/G#
Mermaids and swallows and though I do swallow
    F              Am               E         E7/G#
My mama thinks I'm grown but I'm really just little
     Am  F  Dm7  E     F     Am E  E7
And someday I   will remem - ber

  Am  F  Dm7  E     F     Am E  E7/G#
Someday I   will remem - ber
  Am  F  Dm7  E     F     Am E  E7/G#
Someday I   will remem - ber

  Am  F  Dm7  E     F     Am E  E7/G#  Am
 Ah - ah - ah - ah - ah -
