Bridge:

     Em9                   Bm/D
Oh, this is the eye of the storm
                                   C#7
It's what men in stained raincoats pay for
                   Cmaj7   C6
But in here it is  pure,  yeah
Em9                    Bm/D
This is the end of the line
                C#7
I've seen this storyline
       C#7                 Cmaj7    C6
Played out so many times before
   Em9                      Em9
Oh that goes in there, then that goes in there_
     Bm/D                     Bm/D
Then that goes in there, then that goes in there_
C#7               Cmaj7    C6
Oh, and then it's over
Em9                  Bm/D
Oh, what a hell of a show
                    C#7
But what I want to know
                               Cmaj7   C6
What exactly do you do for an encore?
              Em9
'Cos this-is hardcore
