Standard Tuning

This is a response to a request for a simple chord version of this song. I tried 
to make it as simple as possible so don't hate me if its missing some details.

                E A D G B e
*note - G/Eb = [3 6 5 x x x] since I didn't know what else to call it

Intro: 

  Cm       Gm    Bb  F5  Cm
e------------------------------|
B-4---------3-------------4----|
G-5---------3-----3-------5----|
D-5---------5-----3---3---5----|
A-3---------5-----1---3---3----|
E-----------3---------1--------|

*you can replace the F5 with an Fm if you want


Cm        Gm         Bb F5 Cm
I drug my heart with doublespeak
Cm            Gm      Bb F5 Cm
And all my misgivings disappear
            Cm                 Gm    Bb 
It helps to keep my conscience clean 
F5            Cm
The ends will justify the means
    Cm               Gm      Bb  F5 Cm
But still I'm always careful what I hear

----------------------------------------------------------

Pre-Chorus
              Ab       G/Eb   Eb        Fm
I don't wanna know who really pulls the strings
        Ab      G/Eb     Eb     Fm
Just as long as it's not you or me

----------------------------------------------------------

Chorus

 Cm           Eb
e---------------------------|
B-4-----------6-------------|
G-5--5-5-5----8-------------|
D-5--------5--8--8-8-8------|
A-3-----------6--------8----|
E-------------6-------------|

          Cm               Eb                      Cm                 Eb
There's a jackboot toe tap keeping time, while the children dance and play
       Cm                  Eb                     Cm             Eb     
Honey, if you think you've seen a crime, you just look the other way

----------------------------------------------------------

Cm
         Gm       Bb   F5 Cm
I slowly carve my soul away
Cm       Gm      Bb F5 Cm
Piece by piece I sacrifice
   Cm                   Gm  Bb
To comfort and peace of mind
F5        Cm
I keep my toes on the party line
Cm              Gm          Bb    F5    Cm
There's nothing wrong dear, don't think twice

------------------------------------------------------
Play Pre-Chorus again

Play Chorus 2x          End on Cm
------------------------------------------------------

Bridge - Basically just play around on Cm, but I can hear the bass hitting F and 
Ab also so this is how I play it

 Cm          F/Cm  Ab/Cm
e------------------------|
B-4-----------4-----4----|
G-5-----------5-----5----|
D-5-----------3-----5----|
A-3-----------3----------|
E-------------------4----|
  2 Measures | 1 Measure each

          Cm                                       F/Cm               Ab/Cm
There's a jackboot toe tap keeping time, while the children dance and play
       Cm                                          F/Cm           Ab/Cm 
Honey, if you think you've seen a crime, won't you look the other way

------------------------------------------------------

Final Verse

The (Gm) is optional if you have another guitar or bass that can hit it

Cm        Bb(Gm)           Ab    Fm
I drug my heart with doublespeak,
Cm        Bb(Gm)      Ab    Fm 
All my misgivings disappear
            Cm                 Bb(Gm)     
It helps to keep my conscience clean 
              Ab          Fm
The ends will justify the means
    Cm               Bb(Gm)         Ab     Fm
But still I'm always careful what I hear


Continue with that progression and end on Cm

Little Outro: 

These are the root notes of that little part played by one guitar at the very end.
