The song:
(Intro)
Amaj7, riff 1,  E, G#5

Amaj7, riff 1,  E, riff 2, D5

(verse 1)
Amaj7
the useless drag of another day
                                  E   G#5
the endless drags of a death rock boy

Amaj7
mascara sure and lipstick lost
                           E (riff 2)  D5        Amaj/riff 4
glitter burned by restless thoughts of being forgotten

(Chorus 1)
F#5         Amaj   E(vii, riff 3)
and in your sad machines
F#5       Amaj     E(vii, riff 3)
you'll forever stay
F#5       Amaj   E(vii)       D5          Amaj7
desperate and displeased with whoever you are
Amaj7            (main riff)
and you're a star

E  G#

(Verse 2)
Amaj7 (this one holds for 4 measures)            E     G#5
somewhere he pulls his hair down over a frowning smile
Amaj7                                                      E (riff1)D5 Amaj
a hidden diamond you cannot find a secret star that cannot shine over to you

(Pre Chorus)
c#5     D5      Amaj/riff 4
may the king of gloom,
c#5   D5   E(vii)/riff 5
be forever doomed

(Chorus 2)
F#5         Amaj   E(vii, riff 3)
and in your sad machines
F#5       Amaj     E(vii, riff 3)
you'll forever stay
F#5     Amaj  E(vii, riff 3)
burning up in speed
F#5    Amaj     E(vii)       D5    Amaj(let chord ring and feedback)
lost inside the dreams, of teen machines

(interlude, guitar with sustain, other guitars play glissandos around Amaj)
