QUICKSAND- David Bowie

 

G Am G Am G Am G Am

 

C

I'm closer to the Golden Dawn

G

Immersed in Crowley's uniform of imagery

C

I'm living in a silent film

G

Portraying Himmler's sacred realm of dream reality

Eb

I'm frightened by the total goal

F(VII)

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

 

D

I'm the twisted name on Garbo's eyes

A

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

D

I'm torn between the light and dark

A

Where others see their targets, divine symmetry

F

Should I kiss the viper's fang

G

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

 

CHORUS:

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
