I couldn't find a tab or a chord progression for this song anywhere on the internet so I sat down
and figured it out myself.  If it's not right-on than it's pretty damn close.
Corrections are certainly welcome if you have any.

Verse II

It's getting hard to wake up in the morning
My head is spinning constantly - How can it be?
How could I be so blind to this addiction?
If i don't stop the next one is gonna be me

Only emptiness remains, it replaces all - all the pain
Won't you come out and play with me


You should be able to figure out the rest for yourself.
