If you put the key in the on position, then take a screwdriver and put it through a hole underneath the lock cylinder you can push a tab that pops the entire lock cylinder out. You can take it to a locksmith then.

If you want to re-key the car, I have a complete set with keys. It's from my old 99 r/t - very low miles.

Both doors, ignition and trunk with 2 or 3 keys total.

You just need a straight key; get it made at a real locksmith, and if you can, spring for a code-cut one based on reading your old one. If the locksmith can't do that, he's not much of a locksmith.
Also, stop using your key as a prybar; everybody does it eventually, but it's not very hard metal (brass or nickel silver)..:)
