Hey Matt, Great Job! If I might offer a few minor revisions.. just a couple minor missed chords, no big. FYI: There actually isn't any guitar in the verse when John sings, only synthe... but even Skillet plays the guitar behind to fill it out when they play live.

Pre-Chorus:
D-77-777-755-555--77-777-755555 -
A-77-777-755-555--77-777-755555 -
D-77-777-755-555--77-777-755555 -

Chorus:
G-7777----7777----7777----7777--
D-777733337777555577773333777752 3
A-555533335555555555553333555552 3
D-----3333----5555----3333----52 3

G-7777----7777----7777----7777-- - -- -
D-777733337777555577774455777799 - 99 -
A-555533335555555555554455555599 - 99 -
D-----3333----5555----4455----99 - 99 -
