a-77xx--33xx--000555------------------------------------------------------------
D-77xx--33xx--000555------------------------------------------------------------

something like that, chords are
A F D
in the dark with the music on wishin i was somewhere else
A F D
taking all your anger out on me, (somebody help)

the verses are like that and the chorus is the same with more distortion
the bridge is in this progression
F D A F D A
"Tell me why your putting me down and i hide my face from you"
F D A G D F
"I'm not giving up, giving in when will this war end.... when will it end?"

then back to the verse n chorus.

Hope that helped, God bless you all
