The Sickness Unto Death  Typhoon

"Sickness Unto Death"
one of the most well-written songs of all time. it's a shame these guys aren't more
popular than they are? also the song is obviously a lot more complicated than this, these
are just what I've found to be the most basic chord/bass notes to create your own
interpretation of the song
Capo 2 (all chords relative to capo)
[F]old man in your rocking chair
[C]you wake up, you've been living alon[Am]e
after all these years
[C]surrounded by these shards of mirrors
[F]and how'd it get so quiet here,
[C]you wonder, where did everyone go?[Am] [C]
[F]you tried so hard to make people remembe[C]r you for something
[Am]you were not[C]
[F]and if they so remember you then somet[C]hing else will certainly
[Am]get forgotten[C]
[F]life is for the living
[C]i've heard tell that it is while we are young[Am]
in the morning sun
[C]you take every year as it comes
[F]but when your life is over
[C]all those years fold up like an accordion[Am]
[C]they collapse just like a broken lung[F] [G]
[F]now i've only got one organ left and th[C]is old bag of bones it is
[Am]failing me[C]
[F]i try to tell people that i'[C]m dying only they don't [Am]believe me[C]
[F]they say we're all dying,[C] [G]
[F]that we're all dying[C] [G]
[F]but if you are dyi[C]ng, why aren't you scare[Am]d?[C]
why aren't you sca[F]red
[C]like i'm[G] scared?[C]
[F]i read somewhere that when you face eternit[C]y you face it alone
[Am]no matter what you thought
[C]or what you had or you had not
[F]unless you put yourself in God
[C]but tell me God oh where did you go?[Am] [C]
[F]every bitter night into an empty room[C] i plead my case
[Am]every night i pray that in the mornin[C]g when i wake
[F]i'll be in a familiar place and find tha[C]t i'm recovered and i'm sane[Am]
[C]and i'll remember everything
[F]i'll remember what i w[C]as like before that bug b[Am]it me[C]
[F]and when i have my childhood back
[C]i'll tear every page out of my book
[Am]and place them in an urn
[C]strike a match and watch them burn
[F]then i'll hold the front cover
[C]against the back cover and look[Am]
[C]you'll see
[F]eternity will smi[C]le [G]on me[C]
