Special K Chords

   
hey - tuning is signature Placebo F Bb Eb Ab C C (essentially 1/2 a step up with 
the high e dropped down to C to match the B string)

Essentially to play the chords you can either tune your guitar up 1/2 a step, or 
capo 1 and play the chords relative to the capo

Chords (if you want to use the Placebo tuning (otherwise just play them as you typically would):
   Asus2   F     C       D5    ( F/E* )
C    0    (1)   (1)    3 / x    x  - x
C    0    (1)    1     3 / x    x  - x
Ab   9     2     0     2 / 7    10 - 9
Eb   9     3     2     0 / 7    x  - x
Bb   0     3     3     x / 5    8  - 7
F    x     1     x     x / x    x  - x

For all of the D5s you can play a Dm if you want
For the Cs you can also play a C5 (x355xx) 
F/E* is really just playing an F octave (8th fret) 3times and then sliding down to 
an E octave (7th fret)
