Chords used:

F#m7: 244200
D2: X00230
A2/B: x24200  (I don't think that is the actual name of the chord because, 
harmonically, it wouldn't fit, but that's what I'll call it anyway)

Capo 2
Intro: A2 E F#m7 D2 (x2)

A2                             E
So this is how it feels at the rock bottom of despair
F#m7                          D2
When the house that I built comes crashing down
A2                           E
And this is how it feels when I know the man that I say I am
F#m7                         D2
Is not the man that I am when no one's around
A2                   E
This is how it feels to come alive again
F#m7                     D2
And start fighting back to gain control
A2                       E
And this is how it feels to let freedom in
F#m7                        D2
And break these chains that enslave my soul


A2          E         F#m7              D2
I refuse to be locked up in here like a prison cell
      A2                  E             F#m7        D2
Where all I ever get is a meal and four walls
A2        E       F#m7             D2
I used to be just fine in here but not anymore
      A2     E            F#m7    D2
Gonna break through these steel bars

A2      E      F#m7     D2
Ahhh   Ahhhh   Ahhhh
A2      E      F#m7     D2
Ahhh   Ahhhh   Ahhhh

A2                               E   
So tell me how it feels when the tables start to turn
F#m7                         D2
And you find yourself at the losing end
A2                        E
Tell me how it feels, you're not welcome here
F#m7                         D2
'Cause I'm tired of pain and I'm tired of sin


A2          E         F#m7              D2
I refuse to be locked up in here like a prison cell
      A2                  E             F#m7        D2
Where all I ever get is a meal and four walls
A2        E       F#m7             D2
I used to be just fine in here but not anymore
      A2     E            F#m7    D2
Gonna break through these steel bars

A2      E      F#m7     D2
Ahhh   Ahhhh   Ahhhh
A2      E      A2/B
Ahhh   Ahhhh   Ahhhh


F#m7    A2      E
I won't let you in
F#m7   A2   E
I have no doubt
F#m7    A2       E
I don't want you in 
F#m7        D2
So get out, get out


A2          E         F#m7              D2
I refuse to be locked up in here like a prison cell
      A2                  E             F#m7        D2
Where all I ever get is a meal and four walls
A2        E       F#m7             D2
I used to be just fine in here but not anymore
      A2     E            F#m7    D2
Gonna break through these steel bars


A2          E         F#m7              D2
I refuse to be locked up in here like a prison cell
      A2                  E             F#m7        D2
Where all I ever get is a meal and four walls
A2        E       F#m7             D2
I used to be just fine in here but not anymore
      A2     E            F#m7    D2
Gonna break through these steel bars


A2      E      F#m7     D2
Ahhh   Ahhhh   Ahhhh
A2      E      F#m7     D2
Ahhh   Ahhhh   Ahhhh


A2      E      F#m7     D2
Ahhh   Ahhhh   Ahhhh
A2      E      F#m7
Ahhh   Ahhhh   Ahhhh
