Verse 1

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
  G                     C            D
I recognize the weapons, I used them well

Chorus

  Em  Bm
  Em                  Bm
 This is my mistake. Let me make it good
  Em                     Bm                            G    A
 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

 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

Bridge

  Am            C          Am                     C
 Reach out for me and hold me tight.  Hold that memory
     Am           C           Am             A           G
 Let my machine talk to me.  Let my machine talk to me

Bridge 2

 This is my world
 And I am the world leader pretend
 This is my life
 And this is my time
 I have been given the freedom
 To do as I see fit
 It's high time I've razed the walls
 That I've constructed

Chorus 2

 Em                        Bm
 It's amazing what devices you can sympathize...emapathize
 Em                  Bm
 This is my mistake. Let me make it good
 Em                  Bm                G               A
 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
 And I'm the only one
 G A
 I will be the one to knock it down

Bass

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.
