Verse   There's only one direction in the faces that I see;
 	                   Em                                  D 
        It's upward to the ceiling, where the chambers said to be.

        And the wise and foolish virgins giggle with their bodies glowing bright.

 	Through a door a harvest feast is lit by candlelight;

        It's the bottom of a staircase that spirals out of sight.

        The liquid has congealed, which has seeped out through the crack,
 	        D                                 Em
        And the tickler takes his stickle back.
