Peter Gabriel - Here Comes the Flood

Dbm            Abm7/B
When the night shows
    Asus2                  /B
the signals grow on radios
Dbm             Abm7/B
All the strange things
they come and go, as early warnings
B                 Abm7    A
Stranded starfish have no place to hide
      A6      F#/Bb   B      G#7/C   Dbm
still waiting for the swollen Easter tide
There's no point in direction
   F#      A6/G# Asus2 B7sus2 E
we cannot  even  choose     a side

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

E          B/Eb      Dbm
Lord, here comes the flood
      B          G#7/C         Dbm
We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood
If again  the seas are silent
in any still alive
G#7/C    /Bb       /G#        /F#    A
It'll be those who gave their island to survive
      Am /B C       /D       E
Drink up,   dreamers, you're running dry.

When the flood calls
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
use up what we used to be

Lord, here comes the flood
We'll say goodbye to flesh and blood
If again the seas are silent
in any still alive
It'll be those who gave their island to survive
Drink up, dreamers, you're running dry
