Intro -x2-: Em  D  C  B

Verse 1:
Em                           D                        
I start to part two halves of my heart in the dark and I
C
Don't know where I should go
                     B                       
And the tears and the fears begin to multiply
Em
Taking time in a simple place
    D
In my bed where my head rests on a pillowcase
         C           
And it's said that a war's led but I forget
     B
That I let another day go by
Em
I want to be afraid but it seems that these days
   D
I'm caught under water and I'm falling farther
C
My heart's getting harder, I'm calling my father
   B
Am I screaming to an empty sky?
Em                                 D
Empty sky, no way, that's me cause one half of my heart is free
C                                   B
Empty sky, no way, that's me cause the other half of my heart's asleep

Chorus:
Em        Em               C
   Sing a song but don't believe
     C               G
Blasphemy is just for me
        
Hypocrite, take your pick
Em                      G
Cause the poison's on my lips

Em
   Can I understand you?
C
   Can I understand you?
G
   Can I understand you?
D
   Can I understand you?

Interlude: Em  D  C  B

Verse 2:
        Em
Lights, camera, action, satisfaction
D                                   C
At your finger tips no one's lacking stuff
But it's not enough when it seems that
B
We have enough stuff just to blow stuff up
Em                    D
Lights, camera, stop! We're killing ourselves
Just to get to the top
       C
But we won't stop talking about what we got
    B
And how we all love it when we're loved a lot
Em
Enough about you, let's talk about me
D
And how everybody thinks I'm just so free
C
Free? Did you hear the Verse that came first
    B
And how my own body's waging war on me?
  Em
I bet you didn't know something as absurd
          D
There's a word that is said more than any other word
     C
It's sorry, sorry
B
  And I pray that the word was heard

Chorus:
Em        Em               C
   Sing a song but don't believe
     C               G
Blasphemy is just for me
        
Hypocrite, take your pick
Em                      G
Cause the poison's on my lips

Em
   Can I understand you?
C
   Can I understand you?
G
   Can I understand you?
D
   Can I understand you?

Bridge:
Em     Em      C
I want to be alive
     C         G
When you see my eyes
    G         D
Can I see your eyes?
  -hold-       Em
Can I see your eyes?
    Em         C
Can I see your eyes
    C         G
Can I see your eyes?
    G         D
Can I see your eyes?
    D
Can I see?
-hold-         C
I want to be alive
                G
When you see my eyes
               D
Can I see your eyes?
               Em
Can I see your eyes?

Outro:
Em          C         G
    Let the water wash away
                D        Em
Everything that you've become
        C              G
On your knees, today is gone
               D       Em
And tomorrow's sure to come
  C               G
Tomorrow's sure to come

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
