Twister

De Boerderij met Lords of the Backstage

A song about the futility of losing one's rag. It's a bit prog, so the chords may not make much sense without hearing it, but I'll leave them in 'cos this is as much a resource for me as an insight to you :)


Twister
=======

  Am
I twist myself around
       C
'Til I can't see the light
  Am
I twist myself around
        C
And see strength in a fight
   Am
My eyes see the road
       F#m
That I know to be right
      C           D            Em
And I know I must twist myself around

  Em
I know I am a good man
       D
But my madness costs me pain
       Em
Poison ivy in the heather
       A
Taking shelter from the rain
     Em
Opportunity unheeded
     D
Sensitivity declined
     Am4
Do I know I am a good man
       A
In the shadows of my mind?

         Bm             D  A
Bleed me dry this rare emo-tion
        Bm              D A
Take me high across the o-cean
             Bm                   
'Cos there's freedom still in the lives we lead
				D                   A
There's wisdom still in the minds we feed
   Bm
As time stands still can we make the choice
   D               A     Em
Of outer shell and inner voice?

                C                Em      C
Channels in the headspace seem a-tangle
      Em                F#
Neuro jungle needing to unwind
               C              Em    C
Layers far too deep for us to fathom
Em                 F#m
'Til we take the courage to decide

          Em9              G     A
Headrush, headlong rush to our exhaustion
          Bm                    G     F#m
Smash the bricks and build them back again
            Em9          G     A
Sometimes I ask how many of me are there
           Bm4          Bm
And answer many ways of many men
         Em9      F#       G        A        Bm
I see me then and then and then and then and then

(7/8 section)
Bm F#(m) G D A
D A D A D A D A 

Em (can transition via hung Bm if wanted)

Em
I know I am a good man
D
Seeking knowledge in the pain
Em9
But I cannot stay in shelter
A
I have everything to gain
Em
Temper temper, temper temper
D
Keep the anger for the fight
Am4
So I know I am a good man
A
And make comfort in the right

       Bm          D A
See me fly in my devotion
Hear me cry across the ocean
'Cos there's freedom still in the lives we lead
There's wisdom still in the minds we feed
As time stands still we can make the choice
Of outer shell and inner voice (ends on Em)

(this last verse can also be Am - C - Am - C - Am - F# - Em - B7 - Em)

Em
I twist myself around
G
And return to the light
Em
I twist myself around
G
And find strength for the fight
Em
My eyes see the road
C#
That I know to be right
      G           F#m           Bm
And I know I must twist myself around

Am4 = 002230
