  (words by Robert Smith, music by Simon Gallup, Laurence Tolhurst, and
Robert Smith)

This gloomy song comes off of the angry and gloomy cure album -Pornography-
and never lets up for air.  I am not too sure about what is playing that
line, a distorted bass, guitar, or keyboard but I have comprised it to be
like this:

I play this usual, meaning I tune my low E-string down to C.  The intro

E --------------------|B --------------------|G --------------------|D -----------4--------|A -1---3--4------4--3-|C --------------------|
After this, the drum enters, and the bass (or guitar) goes like this (as if played on a guitar with its low string tuned to C):
E -------------------------------|B -------------------------------|G -------------------------------|D -------------------------------|A -------------------------------|C -10---------8--5--6-------0--1-|
This line continues out throughout the song. The chords are simple, they are just Bbm to Gb and I play them like this: Bbm Gb
E -xx---------------6------------|B -11---------------7------------|G -10---------------6------------|D -11---------------x------------|A -xx---------------x------------|C -10---------8--5--6-------0--1-|
That is basically how the song goes. The lyrics are: Scarred Your back was turned Curled like an embryo Take another face You will be kissed again I was cold as I mouthed the words And crawled across the mirror I wait Await the next breath Your name Like ice into my heart A shallow grave A monument to the ruined age Ice in my eyes And eyes like ice do not move Screaming at the moon Another past time Your name Like ice into my heart Everything as cold as life Can no one save you? Everything As cold as silence And you never say a word Your name Like ice into my heart Your name Like ice into my heart
