VERSE 1:
Was a [C#m]long and dark December
From the rooftops I [C#m7]remember
A Asus2 F#m F#5 F5 E5 Eb5 (strum quickly)
There was snow, white snow
Cl[C#m]early I remember from the windows
They were [C#m7]watching while we f[A]roze... [Asus2]
Down bel[F#m]ow [F#5] [F5] [E5] [Eb5]
CHORUS:
When the f[A]uture's architectured
By a [B]carnival of idiots on [C#m]show
You'd better lie [B]low
[G#m]If you l[A]ove [G#m]me, w[E]onít you [C#m]let [B6]me k[C#m]now?
VERSE 2:
Was a [C#m]long and dark December
When the banks became c[C#m7]athedrals
And the [A]fox[Asus2] became [F#m]God [F#5] [F5] [E5] [Eb5]
P[C#m]riest clutched onto bibles
Hollowed out to fit their [C#m7]rifles
And the c[A]ross[Asus2] was held a[F#m]loft.[F#5] [F5] [E5] [Eb5]
CHORUS:
[A]Bury me in armour
When Iím [B]dead and hit the ground
My nerves are [C#m]poles that unf[B]roze
And [G#m]if you l[A]ove [G#m]me, w[E]onít you [C#m]let [B6]me k[C#m]now?
