A Singer Must Die

	  		        Bb                     Asus2 
Now the courtroom is quiet, but who will confess?  
       Bb                      Asus2 
Is it true you betrayed us? The answer is "yes" 
     Cmaj7                    F 
Then read me the list of the crimes that are mine  
             Dsus2                        G 
I will ask for the mercy that you love to decline  
             C                        E 
And all the ladies go moist, and the judge has no choice  
   Am                      G 
A singer must die for the lie in his voice  

       Bb                       Asus2 
And I thank you, I thank you for doing your duty 
     Bb                   Asus2 
You keepers of truth, you guardians of beauty  
    Cmaj7                 F 
Your vision is right, my vision is wrong  
    Dsus2                  G 
I'm sorry for smudging the air with my song 

C / E / Am / G 

        Bb                    Asus2 
Oh, the night it is thick, my defences are hid  
        Bb                       Asus2 
In the clothes of a woman I would like to forgive  
      Cmaj7                       F 
In the rings of her silk, in the hinge of her thighs  
       Dsus2                   G 
Where I have to go begging in beauty's disguise 
       C                     E 
Oh goodnight, goodnight, my night after night  
   Am                         G 
My night after night, after night, after night, after night 

     Bb              Asus2 
I am so afraid that I listen to you 
     Bb                         Asus2 
Your sun glassed protectors they do that to you 
          Cmaj7                   F 
It's their ways to detain, their ways to disgrace  
      Dsus2                         G 
Their knee in your balls and their fist in your face 
         C                        E 
Yes and long live the state by whoever it's made 
       Am                         G 
Sir, I didn't see nothing, I was just getting home late
