The Trap Door  Jules Shear


        You p[Bb]aid him off and ran
        You kn[Eb]ew he'd underst[Ab]and
        He's j[Eb]ust a w[Bb]orkin m[Eb]an
        [Eb]But you think he's a fool just a capitalist tool
        Who pl[Bb]ays the games of life to tie
        If the t[Eb]ables had been turned ton[Ab]ight
        There'd be n[Eb]othin that his m[Bb]oney could b[Eb]uy - but soon...
Chorus: C G Am F
The trap door gives in under the wicked weight of sin
        You fall d[C]own, down, dow[G]n farther th[C]an you've ever b[G]een
        Yeah, the tr[C]ap door falls [G]open just as y[Am]ou were smugly ho[F]ping
        That you could ch[C]eat and win, the tr[G]ap door falls [C]in

Verse2: Eb Bb
So one escape does not a life make the earth floats under your feet
        You c[Eb]an't trust who you m[Ab]eet
        Your br[Eb]avery's [Bb]a conc[Eb]eit
        It's no l[Eb]onger suspense it's a fear that makes sense
        P[Bb]ullin you through the ground
        The tr[Eb]ap door makes no s[Ab]ound
        One d[Eb]ay just n[Bb]ot arou[Eb]nd - Cause...


Verse3: Eb
I should have known when I was struck with a stone
        That you were [Bb]aiming at the moon
        That l[Eb]ike a gas ball[Ab]oon
        Y[Eb]ou'd come f[Bb]alling so[Eb]on - yeah-eh

(solo over chorus chords)
(Chorus) (<- lead with "Yeah the trap door...")

Coda: F C G Ab Bb C
That you could cheat and win, the trap door fa-a-a-lls in
