Dance While The Sky Crashes Down

	  		
Intro: Am G Am E Am 

                                 Am 
The flowers by your bed are wilting. 
                              E 
The sun is setting in the west. 
                           E 
A fog is covering your eyes, 
                                   E 
Your stockings are attracting flies, 
                         Am                  E 
Decay is nibbling at the boards on which you rest. 

                                   Am 
There's someone waiting at your window, 
                        Dm 
Familiar face without a name. 
                                    E 
One night he'll creep in like the mist, 
                                E 
To touch your forehead with a kiss, 
                           Am                   E 
And lead you back into the void from whence you came.

F E Am We've all begun to die, and don't know what to do. F E Am Since it hurts to pray to God, when God is dying too. F E Am Takes strength to laugh, when you start to drown. Dm Am E Am And we dance while the sky crashes down.

C Am E Like that the earth begins to quiver, Am E And all the oceans turn to black. E A ship of maniacs with knives, E Are playing Blackjack with their lives, Am To kill the time until the giant rats attack. Am It's raining leprosy and acid. Dm The saints were taken out and shot. E When someone proffers you a pear, E You sink your teeth in unaware, Am E That just beneath the skin lies pestilence and rot.

Bridge F Am Dm Am F E Am C G Dm E G E Am Dm Am E Am All that now breathes, and all that you love, Dm Am F E All that we weave, will find its way back to the dust. Am A band of skeletons is playing, E Don't act like you don't know the tune. E Your part is echoed in the path, E Of every dead leaf blowing past, Am E Against a counterpoint reflected off the moon. C Am There is a banquet at the table, E Dm Exotic cheeses wines and cakes. E And every one of us is damned, C E Until we start to understand, Am E That living is to gorge ourselves at our own wakes.

Dm Am E Am And we dance while the sky crashes down. C F E Am When the stakes are high, best to play the clown. Dm Am C F G And we dance while the sky crashes down.
