Intro: Dbmaj7


Dbmaj7 Ab  Dbmaj7           Ab Bm Ab  
How  cruel is the golden rule
         Dbmaj7                  Ab            C     F
When the lives we live are only golden plated
       Dbmaj7                          Ab                    Ab
And I Knew That The Lights of the city were too heavy for me
           Db                    Ab            C      F
And though I carried Karats for everyone to see


      Fm       Gm           Ab            Eb
And I saw God cry in the reflection of my enemies
Fm           Gm            Ab       Eb
And all the lovers with no time for me
    Fm        Gm      Ab           Eb   Eb  
And all of the mothers raise their babies to
               Dbmaj7
stay away from me


Dbmaj7          Ab      Dbmaj7           Ab Ab  
Tongues on the sockets of electric dreams
          Dbmaj7                         Ab          C     F
Where the sewage of youth drowned the spark of my teens
      Dbmaj7                     Ab                        Ab
And I Knew That The Lights of the city were too heavy for me
           Dbmaj7                    Ab            C      F
And though I carried Karats for everyone to see


      Fm       Gm          Ab            Eb
And I saw God cry in the reflection of my enemies
Fm           Gm            Ab       Eb
And all the lovers with no time for me
     Fm        Gm      Ab           Eb   Eb  
And all of the mothers raise their babies to


               Dbmaj7
stay away from me
    Eb                          Dbmaj7
And pray they don't grow up to be
