As an alternative to the Csus & Dsus sections I like to use. It seems to work quite nicely:

C                       Em
This is our town, this is Friday night
C                           Em
Dressed in our rags and our rage and our best
Am                    G               C
Piercing eyes looking for something - anything, just anyone.
C                                Em
Stare across the floor as they begin to dance
C                               Em
Missing all the rhythms and the chosen right steps
       Am                        G
And we laugh and we drink in our corner again
                  C
We're better than them

   C                     Em                   
Divided we were born, divided we live
   C                Em
Divided we fall, divided we die
         Am                      G
Still we tell ourselves over and over again
                  C
We're better than them

         Em             A              Em             A
With our hunger and our hatred, we all walk this town
         Csus         Dsus             Asus
With our fear and our weakness - just holding on
         Em            A                  Em               A
With our doubt and our emptiness and this cold, cold frown
             Csus     Dsus                        Asus
We've got to be so important, we'll put the whole damn world down

       C                           Em
And we build the walls that we can hide behind
        C                   Em
And our finest weapon is our poisoned pride
Am                          G
Here in this town where the jealousies burn
               C
We're watching you

       C                     Em
'Cause truth is only what we need it to be
   C                                 Em
To bring us survival through each and every day
     Am                    G                     C
When nowhere is safe and nowhere is home - just be cool

    C                        Em
And what was she wearing and what did he say?
C                     Em
Who goes with who and what did they do?
   Am                      G 
We tell ourselves over and over again
                  C
We're better than them

         Em             A              Em             A
With our hunger and our hatred, we all walk this town
         Csus         Dsus            Asus
With our fear and our weakness - just holding on
         Em            A                  Em               A
With our doubt and our emptiness and this cold, cold frown
             Csus     Dsus                        Asus
We've got to be so important, we'll put the whole damn world down

   C                     Em                   
Divided we were born, divided we live
   C                Em
Divided we fall, divided we die
         Am                      G
Still we tell ourselves over and over again
                  C
We're better than them
