INTRO


I got sunshine in my stomach
Like I just rocked my baby to sleep.
I got [Bm/F#]sunshine in my [A/E]stomach
But I [G/D]can’t keep [A/C#]me from [G/D]creeping [A/C#]sleep,
[G/D]Sleep, [A/C#]deep in the deep.

Bm/F# – Hold

VERSE

Ebm Bbm – 2x

Rockface moves to press my skin
White liquid turn sour within
Turn fast – turn sour
Turn sweat – turn sour.
Must tell myself that I’m not here.
I’m drowning in a liquid fear.
Bottled in a strong compression,
My distortion shows obsession


--------

BRIDGE

In the cave
Get me out of this cave!


--------

CHORUS

If I keep my self-control,
I’ll be safe in my soul.
And the childhood belief
Brings a moment’s relief,
But my cynic soon returns
And the lifeboat burns.
My spirit just never learns.


--------

VERSE

Stalactites, stalagmites
Shut me in, lock me tight.
Lips are dry, throat is dry.
Feel like burning, stomach churning,
I’m dressed up in a white costume
Padding out leftover room.
Body stretching, feel the wretching


--------

BRIDGE

In the cage
Get me out of the cage!


--------

CHORUS

In the glare of a light,
I see a strange kind of sight;
Of cages joined to form a star
Each person can’t go very far;
All tied to their things
They’re netted by their strings,
Free to flutter in memories of their wasted wings.


--------

VAMP




Outside the cage I see my Brother John,
He turns his head so slowly round.
I cry out Help! before he can be gone,
And he looks at me without a sound.
And I shout out ‘John please help me!’
But he does not even want to try to speak.
I’m helpless in my violent rage
Ab Eb Fm7(no5) Eb
And a silent tear of blood dribbles down his cheek,
And I watch him turn away and leave the cage.
My little runaway.

[Ab/Eb]
Ebm7 Abm7/Eb – fade into verse.

(HOLD Eb note.)
Raindrops keep falling on my head, they keep falling on my…


--------

VERSE


In a trap, feel a strap
Holding still. Pinned for kill.
Chances narrow that I’ll make it,
In the cushioned straight-jacket.
Just like 22nd Street,
They got me by my neck and feet.
Pressures building, can’t take more.
My headaches charge, earaches roar.


--------

BRIDGE

In this pain,

Get me out of this pain!


--------

CHORUS

If I could change to liquid,
I could fill the cracks up in the rocks.
I know that I am solid
And I am my own bad luck.
Outside John disappears, my cage dissolves,
without any reason my body revolves.


--------

ENDING

Keep on turning,
Keep on turning,
Turning around,
spinning around.

Ebm Bbm – repeatedly.

End on Ebm.
