Verse1:	Eb
	Your enemies guard cornered you in a yard
	You paid him off and ran
	      Eb	     Ab
	You knew he'd understand
	      Eb     Bb     Eb
	He's just a workin man
	But you think he's a fool just a capitalist tool
	Who plays the games of life to tie
	        Eb                       Ab
	If the tables had been turned tonight
                    Eb              Bb          Eb
	There'd be nothin that his money could buy - but soon...

Chorus:       C             G             Am               F
	The trap door gives in under the wicked weight of sin
                  C             G           C               G
	You fall down, down, down farther than you've ever been
                    C             G             Am               F
	Yeah, the trap door falls open just as you were smugly hoping
	                 C                  G             C
	That you could cheat and win, the trap door falls in

Verse2:    Eb                                  Bb
	So one escape does not a life make the earth floats under your feet
             Eb                  Ab
	You can't trust who you meet
	       Eb      Bb    Eb
	Your bravery's a conceit
	It's no longer suspense it's a fear that makes sense
	Pullin you through the ground
              Eb                Ab
	The trap door makes no sound
             Eb       Bb     Eb
	One day just not around - Cause...


Verse3: Eb
	I should have known when I was struck with a stone
	That you were aiming at the moon
              Eb            Ab
	That like a gas balloon
         Eb         Bb       Eb
	You'd come falling soon - yeah-eh

		(solo over chorus chords)
		(Chorus) (<- lead with "Yeah the trap door...")

Coda:	F              C                    G        Ab  Bb    C
	That you could cheat and win, the trap door fa-a-a-lls in
