Verse 2 & Prechorus are same as before

Verse Lyrics - 
"You can hear it (as an offering)
If you're a good girl (as an offering)
A righteous choir is singing (as an offering...)
No, screaming, 
As they burn.

Darling, there are no taboos
In lust... My veins coarse blood that's so
Venomous.... when heartless hears a heartbeat... 
He's jealous, so jealous."

The E string is tuned down to an A.

Ghrolism is right. Josh plays his drop-A guitar live. I adjsuted the chords slightly. Alain Johannes plays in Drop D for the rhythm part, I think.
