Here is my try at "the quiet room"
it's not without faults but it works.

Verse2:How long have I been gone      Did winter kill the lawn
                        Em
	 And all those polaroids you sent
                   G           Em    D   A/D  D

Chorus:They've got this place
                           Em
	 Where they've been keeping me
             /F#     G

	 I can't get my wrists to bleed
                        D      D/C             B
	 Just don't know why, Suicide appeals to me
                  G            Em
	 The Quiet Room, Is sterilized and white
             /F#   G

Chorus:This quiet place
	 It ain't so new to me
	 It's haunted atmosphere
	 Has heard so many scream
	 My home from home
	 My twilight zone
	 My strangest dream

	 My confidant,I have confessed my life
	 The Quiet Room
	 Knows more about me than my wife

	 They've got this place
	 Where they've been keeping me
	 Where I can't hurt myself, I just can't
	 I just can't get these damn wrists to bleed

       D          A/D     D    A/D
	 A mattress on the floor
       D/F#      A/C#    Bm   D/A
	 No handles on the door
                      G
	 I really need nothing here
             Em  Em7,D  A/D  D
	 I'm alone
