Hi, thats my first tab hope you enjoy!

At the end of the first verse there is a fast change from the F to the Bb and to F chord again.
You can play that optinally at the end of every verse.
Furthermore the strumming pattern in the chorus is played palm muted if you want to play it like in the
original song.

[Verse 1]

                   Dm            F
It's empty in the valley of your heart
                   Dm            F
The sun, it rises slowly as you walk
                   Dm               F             C       F  Bb F
Away from all the fears and all the faults you've left behind

[Verse 2]

                    Dm              F
The harvest left no food for you to eat
                  Dm              F
You cannibal, you meat-eater, you see
                    Dm               F        C      F
But I have seen the same, I know the shame in your defeat



[Chorus]

    F       Bb       F
But I will hold on hope
    F       Bb       F
And I won't let you choke
Bb      F       C
On the noose around your neck
     Dm         Bb         F
And I'll find strength in pain
    Dm      Bb        F
And I will change my ways
       Bb       F             C
I'll know my name as it's called again



[Verse 3]

                   Dm                F
Cause I have other things to fill my time
                 Dm                  F
You take what is yours and I'll take mine
                  Dm                 F        C      F
Now let me at the truth which will refresh my broken mind


[Verse 4]

               Dm                F
So tie me to a post and block my ears
                     Dm                 F
I can see widows and orphans through my tears
                  Dm                    F       C       F
I know my call despite my faults and despite my growing fears


[Chorus 2]

    F       Bb       F
But I will hold on hope
    F       Bb       F
And I won't let you choke
Bb      F       C
On the noose around your neck
     Dm         Bb         F
And I'll find strength in pain
    Dm      Bb        F
And I will change my ways
       Bb       F             C
I'll know my name as it's called again


[Verse 5]

                    Dm                   F
So come out of your cave walking on your hands
                  Dm              F
And see the world hanging upside down
                     Dm                F        C       F
You can understand dependence when you know the maker's land


[Pre-Chorus]

(same as chorus chords)

   F         Bb      F
So make your siren's call
    F    Bb      F
And sing all you want
  Bb       F             C
I will not hear what you have to say
      F      Bb      F
Cause I need freedom now
    F      Bb      F
And I need to know how
   Bb      F           C
To live my life as it's meant to be


[Bridge]

(I have given the length of each chord in this part because there are no lyrics):

F F Bb F
F F Bb F Bb F C C
(Repeat Once)


[Chorus 3]

    F       Bb       F
But I will hold on hope
    F       Bb       F
And I won't let you choke
Bb      F       C
On the noose around your neck
     Dm         Bb         F
And I'll find strength in pain
    Dm      Bb        F
And I will change my ways
      Bb       F             C           F
I'll know my name as it's called again.


Note:  The final chorus is the same just the melody changes slightly when he goes "And I 
change my ways" etc.  The chords are identical but end on F since this is the tonic chord
