Intro: C - C/B - G  -  G - G/F# - Em


C C/B G G G/F# EmThe last train is nearly due, the underground is closing soon,
C C/B G G G/F# EmAnd in the dark deserted station, restless in anticipation,
C C/B G G - G/F# - EmA man waits in the shadows.
C C/B G G G/F# EmHis restless eyes leap and scratch, at all that they can touch or catch,
C C/B G G G/F# EmAnd hidden deep within his pocket, safe within his silent socket,
C C/B G G - G/F# - EmHe holds a coloured crayon.
C C/B G G G/F# EmNow from the tunnel's stony womb, the carriage rides to meet the groom,
C C/B G G G/F# EmAnd opens wide and welcome doors, but he hesitates, then withdraws
C C/B G EmDeeper in the shadows.
Em DAnd the train is gone suddenly, on wheels clicking silently
C Am Em AmLike a gently tapping litany, and he holds his crayon rosary
C G EmTighter in his hand.
C C/B G G G/F# EmNow from his pocket quick he flashes, the crayon on the wall he slashes,
C C/B G G G/F# EmDeep upon the advertising, a single-worded poem comprised of
C C/B G G - G/F# - EmFour letters.
C C/B G And his heart is laughing, screaming, pounding,
G G/F# EmThe poem across the tracks rebounding,
C C/B G G G/F# EmShadowed by the exit light, his legs take their ascending flight
C C/B G G/F# C GTo seek the breast of darkness and be suckled by the night.
