Capo on 7th Fret

   Em                    Cadd9
   You come out at night
   G               D                 
   that's when the energy comes
   Em                       Cadd9
   and the dark side's light
   G                D 
   and the vampires roam
   Em             Cadd9  
   you strut your rasta wear
   G                D
   and your suicide poem
   Em                 Cadd9             
   and a cross from a faith
             G      D     A 
   that died before Jesus came
   C                 D 
   you're building a mystery

   [Verse 2]
   Em            Cadd9
   You live in a church
   G                    D
   where you sleep with voodoo dolls
   Em                          Cadd9
   and you won't give up the search
   G                     D
   for the ghosts in the halls
   Em                Cadd9
   you wear sandals in the snow
   G                       D
   and a smile that won't wash away
   Em                    Cadd9
   can you look out the window
   G                                  Cadd9
   without your shadow getting in the way

   oh you're so beautiful
   with an edge and a charm
   but so careful
   Cadd9             D
   when I'm in your arms

 Em, Cadd9,G,D
   'Cause you're working
   building a mystery
   holding on and holding it in
   yeah you're working
   building a mystery
   and choosing so carefully

   [Verse 3]
   (Chords are the same as the first verse)

   You woke up screaming aloud
   a prayer from your secret god
   you feed off our fears
   and hold back your tears

   Give us a tantrum
   and a know it all grin
   just when we need one
   when the evening's thin

Am, Cadd9, Am, Cadd9,D
   Oh you're a beautiful
   a beautiful fucked up man
   you're setting up your
   razor wire shrine.

Personally I think this song sounds best with the capo on 5 instead of 7. But none the less this is a great simplified version of the song, great for a beginner :P

I just tried the capo on 5 instead of 7, and think it sounds better (for my voice, at least) on 7. Thanks for the great tab :)
