D            G    C         D        D
 I sit at my table and wage war on myself
   G               C                  D
It seems like it's all...it's all for nothing
  D           G       C
I know the barricades, and
           D             D
I know the mortar in the wall breaks

I recognize the weapons, I used them well

Chorus

  Em  Bm

 This is my mistake. Let me make it good

 I raised the wall, and I will be the one to knock it down

Verse 2

D G C D:
I've a rich understanding of my finest defenses
I proclaim that claims are left unstated, I demand a rematch
I decree a stalemate, I divine my deeper motives
I recognize the weapons I've practiced them well. I fitted them myself

Chorus

Em BM:
It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...empathize
This is my mistake.  Let me make it good
I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down

     Am           C           Am             A           G
 Let my machine talk to me.  Let my machine talk to me

Bridge 2

D G C D:
This is my world and I am the world leader pretend

It's high time I've razed the walls that I've constructed

Chorus

Em                        Bm
It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...emapathize

I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down

Chorus

Em                      Bm
You fill in the mortar. You fill in the harmony
Em                      Bm
You fill in the mortar. I raised the walls
Em                  Bm                G               A
I raised the walls, and I will be the one to knock it down

Notes

  • Verses: between the Em and Bm chords play (D) 0-2-4-2-0

Bass Guitar

The timing on this one can be a bit tricky.
I suggest maybe playing along to the piano/vocal solo first - 
(Bridge 2) that should give you a better feel for the rhythm.
