This song has a wicked taberature, and if you want the full experience I'd recommend 
this version: http://www.3eb.co.uk/archive/index.php/t-10827.html

But here are some simpler chords if you just want to sing along :).  You can lose the 
capo and just barre at the same spots, but this is how I like to play it.

CAPO 5

E     022100
Asus  x00220
C#m   x46650
Bsus  x24430

VERSE:

C#m
 Time tick tick ticks after me
Bsus
 My mp3 is out of juice
Asus
 I wrote a song for you but what's the use
               C#m            Bsus           Asus
How did we get knocked so loose, knocked so loose.

VERSE:

C#m
 Someone I swore I'd never be
Bsus
 Who trades his dreams for security
Asus
 Walks this city blindly
                      C#m               Bsus
 Lately it's a little hard for me to see
                      Asus
 Lately it's a little hard for me to believe

         E         Asus
And it's all disappearing
        E          Asus
And it all falls apart
        E             Asus
And it seems like the ending
     E            Asus
Is a lot like the start

Well nature has its own rules
Like gravity crushing me
And lies, I'm of the memory
Lately it's a little hard for me to believe
At least you left a mark on me

And I think there's a reason
At least there's a sign
And all that we call chaos
I will say it's by design
But I'm just lying

                    E
What you need is a sharp knife soul
                          Asus
To come back down from an all time low
                  Bsus
Seems Ive got the only one
                  C#m
I wish I was a sharp knife
                           E
Swing that blade right through my life
                    Asus
Careful, you could hurt someone
                  Bsus
I wish I was a sharp knife

to cut!

C#m C#m C#m

A shiv,

C#m C#m C#m

A shiv,

C#m C#m C#m

A shiv,

C#m C#m C#m

A shiv.




The rest repeats these progressions.  Hope you enjoy...I wrote this out because I 
couldn't find any simple ways to play this great song.

P.S. You can try different E chords in the chorus (I'm partial to x79900 from time to 
time, and then x09900 is an complementary A)
