If you've made it here you've experienced the excellence that is Thrice, and for that, I salute you.
I sat down and tried working this song out the other day and this is what I've come up with
It's a pretty simple song to play and it can sound very good with the right strumming patterns and vocals
Let me know what you guys think!

[Verse 1]
Em
Paint the target
Em
We don't need no evidence
G
Flood the market
   A4              Dsus2
We do it all in self defense
Em
You're a smart kid
Em
Never work without your gloves
   G
If you're a smart kid
       A4            Dsus2
You'll stay the hell away from love

[Pre-Chorus]
    A4
And if it comes to murder
      C
Don't tell and we won't

[Chorus]
Em              A4
Ask you how you sleep at night
         C                        Dsus2
When the lights go out and you're all alone
     A4                C
With all the ghosts of lesser humans
      Em                       Dsus2
Whose lives you've spilt to suit your own

[Verse 2]
Em (hold)
Sit and think of
Em
All the dollars and the cents
G
And your blue blood
       A4             Dsus2
You'll see it all makes perfect sense
Em
Drink from this cup
Em
A better life awaits us all
G
You're one of us
  A4              Dsus2                A4 (hold)
Remember conscience comes before the fall

[Bridge 1] Note: I like to strum the Em in a breakdown-ish pattern.. it can sound very cool.
Em
Your actions all are justified
Em
Your actions all are justified

[Pre-Chorus]
    A4 (hold)
And if it comes to murder
      C (hold)
Don't tell and we won't

[Chorus]
Em              A4
Ask you how you sleep at night
         C                        Dsus2
When the lights go out and you're all alone
     A4                C
With all the ghosts of lesser humans
      Em                       Dsus2
Whose lives you've spilt to suit your own

[Bridge 2]
           A4   C  Em    Dsus2
Cause it's need to know
         A4   C  Em      Dsus2
We don't need to know
         A4   C  Em
We don't need to know

At this point I play this chord progression into the outro.. I think it sounds pretty good.

Em Cmaj7 A4 Dsus2

[Outro]
         C                A4
Don't we all know life is sacred?
         C                     Dsus2 D6/9 Em (hold)
Don't we all know we bleed the same red blood?


The last three chords are played with the last three words of the song.
