Intro Am C (twice)

(C) Am C
As you look into an invisible landscape

Dm7 C
And the waves of time part behind your back

G
As your life crumbles and turns into fiction

Dm7 C
And the end of it becomes a fact

Am C
The ghosts of children will run in your garden

Dm7 C
And play with an imaginary ball

G
You will be released and pardoned

Dm7 C
Now there's nowhere left to fall

Dm7 C Dm7 C
Chorus Good bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye bye

Dm7 (add G) C Dm7 C
Now fly fly fly fly fly fly fly fly fly

Am C
A steam rises out of the water

Dm7 C
And a mist hangs over the field

G
The tears of your wife and daughter

Dm7 C
Have all but released their yield

Am C
The ghosts of lovers will walk toward you

Dm7 C
And beckon you into their arms

G
And the mighty bells of chaos

Dm7 C
Will no longer sound their alarms

Chorus repeat (plus way way way way way)

Dm7 G
Shake off your carcass leave us in the dark

C C
That's us fumbling 'round like ants on the ground

Dm7 G
In palaces and hovels reading mystery novels

C C
But we never get the plot Maybe you got it now

Dm7 G
Shake that mortal coil leave us to toil

C C
Take off that weight take off that weight

Dm7 G
Listen to the silence know the end of violence

C C
Is a clean slate Is a clean slate

Chorus repeat
