QUICKSAND- David Bowie

G Am  G  Am  G  Am  G  Am

I'm closer to the Golden Dawn
Immersed in Crowley's uniform of imagery
I'm living in a silent film
Portraying Himmler's sacred realm of dream reality
I'm frightened by the total goal
I'm drawing to the ragged hole
      G              Em (N.C.)  C
And I ain't got the power     anymore
      C             Cmaj7   G     Am  Am Asus2 A
No I ain't got the power anymore
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/d/david_bowie/quicksand_crd.html ]
I'm the twisted name on Garbo's eyes
I'm living proof of Churchill's lies, I'm destiny
I'm torn between the light and dark
Where others see their targets, divine symmetry
Should I kiss the viper's fang
Or herald loud the death of Man
       A              F#m             D
I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought
        D           Dmaj7    A
And I ain't got the power anymore

 A       E          F#m
Don't believe in yourself
         B7          E
Don't deceive with belief
           Em                   Bm
Knowledge comes with death's release
 Adim   A    F#m C#m E
Aaaaaahhhh aaaaaaahhh

(chords same as second verse)
I'm not a prophet or a stone age man
Just a mortal with potential of a superman, I'm living on
I'm tethered to the logic of Homo Sapien
Can't take my eyes from the great salvation of bullshit faith
If I don't explain what you ought to know
You can tell me all about it on the next Bardo
I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought
And I ain't got the power anymore  ...CHORUS TWICE
