The sequence of these chords is wrong.
Try in this way;

C D Am
I hurt myself today
C D Am
to see if I still feel
...and so on until...

but I remember everything

Am F
What have I become?
My sweetest friend

C D Am C D Am
I hurt myself today to see if I still feel

C D Am C D Am
I focus on the pain the only thing that's real

C D Am C D Am
The needle tears a hole the old familiar sting

C D Am C D G
Try to kill it all away but I remember everything

Am F C G
What have I become? My sweetest friend

Am F C G
Everyone I know goes away in the end

Am F C G
And you could have it all My empire of dirt

Am F C G
I will let you down I will make you hurt

C D Am C D Am
I wear this crown of thorns upon my liars chair

C D Am C D Am
Full of broken thoughts I cannot repair

C D Am C D Am
Beneath the stains of time the feeling disappears

C D Am C D G
You are someone else I am still right here

For this last part just strum a G

If I could start again A million miles away

I would keep myself I would find a way

The chords are not only not all right, there are some missing, AND it's laid out about a chord behind where that happens.
