Creed - My Own Prison tab

Subject: TAB: c/creed/

Archivist:  I sent two versions of this song so that I could answer the 
requests of the people who didn't want to tune down a whole step.

My Own Prison (Version 1)
My Own Prison

Tuning:  down one whole step (D G C F A D)
         all notes sound one whole step lower than written
           (i.e. "Em" is actually a Dm)
         (can be played in dropped-d, but doesn't sound as good)
         Lyrics from CD booklet

Didn't bother to include strumming patterns, they're not that hard.
I tried to place the lyrics somewhat close to where they are in
the song.

Intro, Verse, and Chorus
  Em           C              G
                                                          ^ sometimes
                                                          this last note
                                                          doesn't appear
1.A court is in session, a verdict is in
  No appeal on the docket today, Just my own sin
  The walls are cold and pale, The cage made of steel
  Screams fill the room,    Alone I drop and kneel
  Silence now the sound, My breath the only motion around
  Demons cluttering around, My face showing no emotion
  Shackled by my sentence, Expecting no return
  Here there is no penance, My skin begins to burn

2.I hear a thunder in the distance, See a vision of a cross
  I feel the pain that was given on that sad day of loss
  A lion roars in the darkness, Only he holds the key
  A light to free me from my burden and grant me life eternally

  Should have been dead on a Sunday morning banging my head
  No time for mourning, Ain't got no time


 So I held my head up high
G/F#                        F
 Hiding hate that burns inside
 Which only fuels their selfish pride
G                                     G/F#
 We're all held captive out from the sun
 A sun that shines only on some
 We the meek are all in one


   G        D        Em        C
   G        D        Em        C

    G                                  D
 I cry out to God, Seeking only his decision
    Em                                             C
 Gabriel stands and confirms I've created my own prison

what you think.
