NOTE: The note after the chord name marks that the bass
note is different from the root note of the chord.
For example, "Abm/Eb" means this is still recognized
as an Abm chord, but the bass plays an Eb.



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

Bm/F# - Hold


Ebm    Bbm/F     B      C#


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


       Ebm          Bbm
In the cave
                   Ebm      Bbm
Get me out of this cave!


   Eb                Ab
If I keep my self-control,
        Eb         Ab
I'll be safe in my soul.
        Eb          Ab
And the childhood belief
        Eb          Ab
Brings a moment's relief,
But my cynic soon returns
And the lifeboat burns.
   C#m    A           F#
My spirit just never learns.


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.
Ebm                                 Bbm
Body stretching, feel the wretching


       Ebm       Bbm
In the cage
                  Ebm      Bbm
Get me out of the cage!


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


(Bear with me here. I'll try to space the chords depending
on timing, but ultimately you'll have to listen to the
song to figure it out.)

Outside the cage I see my Brother John,
He turns his head so slowly round.
I cry out Help! before he can be gone,
       Eb                           Bb
And he looks at me without a sound.
And I shout out 'John please help me!'
       Eb                           Bb
But he does not even want to try to speak.
    Eb                          Bb
I'm helpless in my violent rage
      Ab             Eb             Fm7(no5)   Eb
And a silent tear of blood dribbles down his cheek,
      Abm            Bb                  Ebsus4
And I watch him turn away and leave the cage.
My little runaway.

Eb       Ab/Eb Eb    Ab
Ebm7     Abm7/Eb  -  fade into verse.

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


Ebm         Bbm

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.


Ebm      Bbm
In this pain,

                   Ebm      Bbm
Get me out of this pain!


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


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

Ebm      Bbm - repeatedly.

End on Ebm.
