Eb D° Eb The music box is all that's left in the empty house D° Cm Must've left it when they moved out B+ Eb/Bb Ab Fm/C In a hurry to flee the town Eb D° Eb Armoured tanks broke through all of the soldier's ranks D° Cm You can be sure they weren't shooting blanks B+ Eb/Bb Ab Fm/C From bodies laid out on the ground Fm Cm There's a song your father had sung Fm Cm When you were just knee high Fm Bb Now a soldier plays the same tune Eb D° Cm From the toy you left behind D°/Bb Eb/Bb Something to remind you D°/Bb Eb/Bb Something to remind you Burnt to black there's a face you don't recognize Just a doll with hollow eyes And a feeling you can't describe In factories, toys are made by the companies Who create our killing machines So the planet can rest at ease There's a story you had to hear When you couldn't sleep at all Now the pages are burning In some sad unholy war Something to remind you Something to remind you /Bb /C Something to remind you /D /Eb The ones you left behind you Something to remind you Something to remind you Something to remind you The ones you left behind you The music box plays a song that I used to love But now I can't remember what it was For my memory has faded *Note the ascending bass line at the end of the second chorus the leads into a The last quiet verse uses the same chords as the first verse but fades out on a couple alternate chords that I can't seem to make out.
