QUICKSAND- David Bowie


G Am G Am G Am G Am



I'm closer to the Golden Dawn


Immersed in Crowley's uniform of imagery


I'm living in a silent film


Portraying Himmler's sacred realm of dream reality


I'm frightened by the total goal


I'm drawing to the ragged hole

G Em (N.C.) C

And I ain't got the power anymore

C Cmaj7 G Am Am Asus2 A

No I ain't got the power anymore



I'm the twisted name on Garbo's eyes


I'm living proof of Churchill's lies, I'm destiny


I'm torn between the light and dark


Where others see their targets, divine symmetry


Should I kiss the viper's fang


Or herald loud the death of Man

A F#m D

I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought

D Dmaj7 A

And I ain't got the power anymore



A E F#m

Don't believe in yourself

B7 E

Don't deceive with belief

Em Bm

Knowledge comes with death's release

Adim A F#m C#m E

Aaaaaahhhh aaaaaaahhh


(chords same as second verse)

I'm not a prophet or a stone age man

Just a mortal with potential of a superman, I'm living on

I'm tethered to the logic of Homo Sapien

Can't take my eyes from the great salvation of bullshit faith

If I don't explain what you ought to know

You can tell me all about it on the next Bardo

I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought

And I ain't got the power anymore ...CHORUS TWICE



Adim: x 0 1 2 1 2
