D# G# C# F# A# D#
Here's my acoustic version of this wondeful song:

C#m _

C#m F#m A B
C#m F#m A B
C#m F#m A B
C#m F#m A B


    C#m             F#m     A 
So please don't ask me how
            B                  C#m
I ended up at my wits end
       F#m       A
And breaking down
B                      C#m                 F#m
Pages torn from books we never read,
                  A                       B
Cause we're plugged into this grid.
        C#m                    F#m
Don't pull this plug right now,
                   A                  B
Or then we'd really have to live.


            A                    F#m
When I die, will they remember not
            A                 F#m
What I did, but what I haven't done?
                A                  F#m
It's not the end that I fear with each breath
     A                              B
It's life that scares me to death.


               E
When we built these dreams on sand
               B
How they all slipped through our hands
C#m                   A
This might be our only chance
                     E
Let's take this one day at a time
                  B
I'll hold your hand if you hold mine
      C#m                           A
The time that we kill keeps us alive.

C#m F#m A B
C#m F#m A B
C#m F#m A B
C#m F#m A B

C#m                   F#m      A
Your words won't save me now.
              B                      C#m        F#m       A
I'm at the edge feeling the sweat drip from my brow.
          B               C#m                   F#m
"Get a grip on yourself" is what they say,
         A               B
Every hour, every day.
C#m                F#m
Hands over my ears,
             A                           B
I've been screaming all these years!


            A                    F#m
When I die, will they remember not
            A                 F#m
What I did, but what I haven't done?
                A                  F#m
It's not the end that I fear with each breath
     A                              B
It's life that scares me to death.


               E
When we built these dreams on sand
               B
How they all slipped through our hands
C#m                   A
This might be our only chance
                     E
Let's take this one day at a time
                  B
I'll hold your hand if you hold mine
      C#m                           A
The time that we kill keeps us alive.

F#m _ _

 F#m               E F#m _ 
        We came in search of answers!
 E D _         A B _             E
       We left empty handed again!
F#m _             E F#m _
        Shots fired into the sky...
E D _ 
      Are now returning!
A B _                     E
      Where the fuck will you hide?

   
F#m _                          E      F#m _ 
Hiding from the laughter in the closets of our lives,
E D _                                             A        E _
   But the door hinges are squeaking letting in thin shards of light.
E F#m _                           
    And now a hand's extending outward,
E F#m _
   Quiet comfort they invite,
E D _ 
   Do we dare take what they offer?
A E _
    Do we step into the light?


            A                    F#m
When I die, will they remember not
            A                 F#m
What I did, but what I haven't done?
                A                  F#m
It's not the end that I fear with each breath
     A                              B
It's life that scares me to death.


               E
When we built these dreams on sand
               B
How they all slipped through our hands
C#m                   A
This might be our only chance
                     E
Let's take this one day at a time
                  B
I'll hold your hand if you hold mine
      C#m                           A
The time that we kill keeps us alive.
               E
When we built these dreams on sand
               B
How they all slipped through our hands
C#m                   A
This might be our only chance
                     E

      C#m                           A
The time that we kill keeps us alive.

i think the page is getting the chords wrong because you put that the guitar must be tuned half step down, when i hover over the A chord it shows a A# E is E# and so on

Juaanii is right, you have to correct the chords so they correspond to the tuning, or just set the tab to "standard tuning".

Easy fix, transpose the tab a half step down and you get the right chord shapes.

You play the song tuned down a half step. His chord chart isn't the actual chords, it's just the shapes of the chords you're playing.
