Then go straight into the main riff again Muffled footsteps on the carpet Spiral steps start spinning Around...me **Follow with the same bridge and main intro riff throughout the rest of the song where needed, you should listen to the song for the timing - its basicaly the same sequence all the way though the song** Which floor which ceiling You're off balance Which floor which ceiling It's all upside down Yes.. you guessed, main riff again Staircase lying face up Staircat sat on the mat looking down Looking down....down
