Long Slow Slide

	  		
Intro: Em, D, Em, D 

verse 1: 
Em              D 
Lights are bright in the circus 
Em                              D 
The geeks and the freaks all light cigarettes and laugh at your misery 
Em                      D 
While the weight of the curtain closing crushes your heart 
Em                      D 
The inertia of loneliness tears your flesh apart 

G 
It's a long slow slide 
Em 
It's a long slow slide 
A 
It's a long slow slide 
D 
Down 

Em 
Once the neon is gone 
D 
There's still that golden splinter at your side 
Em                              D 
His manners are charming, but who are you fooling? You are still nobody's bride 
Em                      D 
And Bukowski's widow haunts each empty seat on the ferris wheel 
Em                      D 
As ghoulish lovers collide in a collage of kisses that they steal 

G 
It's a long slow slide 
Em 
It's a long slow slide 
A 
It's a long slow slide 
D 
Down 

D  -  A  -  Bm 
D  -  A  -  Bm 
D  -  G  -  C#m 
D  -  A  -  Bm 

Em                              D                                
And outside the window the circus crackles and lurches with rings of smoke 
Em                              D 
You laugh halfheartedly at the punchline, not realizing they've made you the joke 
Em                           D 
And inside my heart a war is raging in regions still untamed 
Em                      D 
The worst fear I can imagine is for the mystery to be named 
Em              D 
Is for the mystery to be named 

G 
It's a long slow slide 
Em 
It's a long slow slide 
A 
It's a long slow slide 

G 
It's a long slow slide 
Em 
It's a long slow slide 
A 
It's a long slow slide 
D 
Down
