I found some live version of the song so I got the chords for the song figured out quite

Well here's how I play the intro part of the song. At some point a second guitar comes to mix it up, but here's my one-guitar version. Intro:
---------------------------------------------------------------------|-(12)-(7)-15-15-15p12------------------------------------------------|-(12)-(7)-------------11-11h12p11----11-12-14-11---------------------|-(12)-(7)-------------------------14-------------12----12/14---------|-(12)-----------------------------------------------14---------------|-(12)----------------------------------------------------------------|

And then: Em, Fmaj7-5, Em, Fmaj7-5, Em, A Verse: Fmaj7-5 Em Fmaj7-5 She rises early from bed, runs to the mirror. Em A Am Bm Em The bruises inflicted in moments of fury. Fmaj7-5 Em Fmaj7-5 He kneels beside her once more, whispers of promise Em A Am Bm Em "Next time I'll break every bone in your body.". F G A And the well-wishers let the devil in. F G A And if the river ran dry they'd deny it happening. Bridge: Edim F Edim F As the card players steal their hands from the bottom of the deck. Am G Gm7 Am Row upon row of feudal houses blown away. Bbmaj7 Fm7 Gm7 G# A# Medicine for the popular complaint. Chorus: Em Fmaj7-5 Em When the poets dreamed of angels, what did they see? A Am Dsus2 Fmaj7-5 History lined up in a flash on their backs. Em Fmaj7-5 Em When the poets dreamed of angels, what did they see? A Am Dsus2 Fmaj7-5 The Bishops and knights well placed to attack. Now it should be quite close to how it's played. At least this is how he played the at one live show I watched. Not completely sure about the Bm there, but I think it is it. Tabbed by Kari Kääntä
