Changed all D chords to Dm...

The fingerpicking in this one is pretty simple..
otherwise just bash out the chords, listen to the song
for the correct timing..


Am   X 0 2 2 1 0
C    X 3 2 0 1 0
G    3 2 0 0 3 3
F    1 3 3 2 1 1
D    X 5 7 7 6 5
C/B  X 2 2 0 1 0

Am           C   G repeat

Am
I got a faulty parachute
        C          G
I got a stranger's friend
   Am
An exciting change in
   C           G
My butchers blend
  Am
A symbol on the ceiling
         C          G
With the flick of a switch
Am
Yeah my new found hero
        C       G
And the enemy's ditching
F

Am                            C         G
Well somebodies something was left in a room
Am                            C         G
And now that its gone well of course we assume
Am                   C            G
Somebody else needed something so bad
Am                   C        G
They took everything somebody had
F

C      C/B     Am
Losing hope is easy
Dm             G
When your only friend is gone
    Dm             G
And every time you look around
Dm              G                  C     C/B
Well, it all, it all just seems to change
Am    C  G

Am
The mark was left
         C         G
Man it's never the same
     Am
Next time that you shoot
     C         G
Make sure that you aim
Am                C       G
Open windows with passing cars
Am
A brand new night
         C    G   F
With the same old stars


C      C/B     Am
Losing hope is easy
Dm             G
When your only friend is gone
    Dm             G
And every time you look around
Dm              G                  C     C/B
Well, it all, it all just seems to change
Am    C G

         Am
Feed the fool
C G            Am
A piece of the pie
C      G           Am
Make a fool of his system
C      G           Am
Make a fool of his mind
C        G          Am
Give him bottles of lies
C         G       Am
And maybe he'll find
C   G        Am
His place in heaven
C        G          Am
Cause he might just die
F

C      C/B     Am
Losing hope is easy
Dm             G
When your only friend is gone
    Dm             G
And every time you look around
Dm              G                  C     C/B
Well, it all, it all just seems to change

C   C/B           Am
But hanging on is easy
Dm                G
When you've got a friend to call
Dm                   G
When nothings making sense at all
Dm                  G                    C    C/B
You're not the only one that's afraid of change

Am      C   G
repeat [x2] then bass outro
