C  Am/D
G  C/G  Am/G  C/G  Am/D (x2)


G                                C
When I see the light why is it terrifying,
      Am               Am/G          C     Am/D
it's terrifying, it's coming up, I'm going down

G                                 C
Down into the streets that got me here
                Am                  Am/G            C    Am/D
It's blinding, blinding light, it's not supposed to rain today


C/G      C/B              Am/G
I see it now, it was just moving too fast
C/G      C/B            Am/G
I see it now like a reflection in my past
C/G      C/B              Am/G
Rivers of poison that surround us
             Am/D(2)
on an island full of death and rats, subways and taxicabs


    G        C              Am
And you, and those blinding lights
     G        C             Am       C  Am/D
Yeah you and those blinding lights


G                              C
I just want to sleep why is it never over
     Am              Am/G               C       Am/D
The day before keeps running through my head I need the

G                          C  
Downs in the street, it's awe inspiring,
     Am                  Am/G          C       Am/D
The strangers passing, nobody stops to say goodbye


C/G      C/B              Am/G       
I see it now, it was just moving too fast
C/G      C/B            Am/G
I see it now like a reflection in my past
C/G       C/B            Am/G
Rivers of poison that surround us
                     Am/D(2)
on an island full of death and rats, subways and taxicabs,

All night bars, and mistakes you know I made before

Days and nights, endless, overripe, buses and traffic lights

and tourists with subway maps and


G       C              Am
You and those blinding lights
     G       C              Am        C Am/D
Yeah you and those blinding lights
     G       C              Am
Yeah you and those blinding lights
     G       C              Am
Yeah you and those blinding lights
Am/G           C    Am/D  G
Shining on the death and rats
