Rasputina – In Old Yellowcake chords

Chords
Transpose:
Em CSmoke rises from an ice factory on the edge,
G DOn the edge of a city that exists in perpetual gloom.
Em C I snatch a note from the basket of a passing bicycle.
G It says “Go to the flour factory.
D There’s something waiting there for you.”
A CUnder the window, covered by curtains,
G Dall lacy and splattered with blood,
Em Cwe find crutches in the corner and bullets on she shelves,
G Dwhich I dismiss at once as being equivalent, irrelevant, in and of themselves.
Em CUnderneath the staircase there’s a mast which flies a flag.
G DDespite dankness beyond imagining, it floats on to a higher hole.
Em In tunnels gouged beneath the basement room are, unmistakably,
G Dsets of bloody handprints on a crumbling wall.
Em C G DOh, won’t you be there with me for it tonight?
Em C G DIn this hut-to-hut witch hunt down the tunnels of Old Yellowcake,
Em C G Dwhere all the souls in the city go drowning by starlight,
Em C G Dwhere each choice you make is a fierce firefight or a new mistake?
Em C Inside of a room is a cage, is a cage.
G DIt’s made out of chain and glass.
Em C G DIt’s about forty feet high and three feet wide, it was built to last.
Em C G DIt’s against a brick wall in an old muddy corner of a basement tunnel room.
Em C G There’s a man in the cage in the old muddy corner. He’s asleep but he’ll wake
Dup soon.
A CUnder the window, covered by curtains,
G Dall lacy and splattered with blood,
Em Cwe find crutches in the corner and bullets on she shelves,
G Dwhich I dismiss at once as being equivalent, irrelevant, in and of themselves.
Em C G D Oh, won’t you be there with me for it tonight?
Em C G DIn this hut-to-hut witch hunt down the tunnels of Old Yellowcake,
Em C G Dwhere all the souls in the city go drowning by starlight,
Em C G Dwhere each choice you make is a fierce firefight or a new mistake?
