Here Comes The Flood

Peter Gabriel

intro:
 Dbsus4DbmE/BA

 DbmAbm/BA
   When the night  shows   and signals grow on radios

 DAbm/BA
   All the strange things that come and go as early warnings

 BB/AbA
 Stranded starfish have no place to hide

 AGb/BbBAb/CDbm
Still waiting  for the swollen Easter tide

 Dbm7/BGb/BbGbm/AAE
Theres no point in direction, we cannot even  choose a side

I took the old track, the hollow shoulder, across the water,
On the tall cliffs, they were getting older, sons and daughters,
The jaded underworld was riding high,
And waves of steel hurled metal at the sky,
And as the nails sunk in the cloud,
The rain was warm and soaked the crowd.

chorus:
 EB/EbDbm
 Lord, here comes the flood

 BAb/CDbm
We'll say goodbye,     to flesh and blood

 Ab/CDbm
If again the seas are silent in any still alive

 Ab/CAb/BbAbAb/GbA
 It'll be those who gave their island to survive

 AmBmCDE
Drink up,   dreamers,  you're running dry

When the flood call, you have no home, you have no walls,
In the thundercrash, you're a thousand minds within a flash,
Don't be afraid to cry at what you see,
The actor's gone, there's only you and me,
And if we break before the dawn, they'll use up what we used to be.

chorus
