     D#m             C#                  B
     Landing on your face, it licks your eye
     D#m              C#               B
     You can feel its tongue making a teardrop
     D#m              C#               B

Last Chord (5:55)

     D#m

For the transition into Turning Violent, I'm pretty sure it alternates between these two chords:

     C#    Fm

Listen to the bass for the timing in this part.
