Authors Note: This is my first ever submission for UltimateGuitar.com, so please bear
with me. It's just the basic chord changes for this little known BOC song off the
"Mirrors" LP, as best as I could figure them. It sounds especially nice if you play the
s with arpeggio strumming, then switch to full chords for the chorus.
I also recommend listening to the actual recording to get the timing of the vocals, if
you're into that sort of thing.
They have killed the great sun jes-ter
Who danced between the stars
They have stripped him of his man-hood
Signs of Venus and of Mars
The cynics left him weeping, and the jackals left him torn
And the jester reaches out blind hands, He can touch the stars ... no more.
And he took the stars in his hands
And as he scattered them he'd shout
"I'm the joker of the universe
I'm what it's all about."
Now he's dying in his grief
And the hard men dragged him down
They have killed the wild-eyed jester
They have killed the fire - clown
Now his blind eyes seek the starlight
And his fingers seek controls
To take him into space again
Where he was both young and old
The dancers stiff with pain, and they've made him kneel too long
And the madness they have driven out, they've left him cold .... and sane.
He'll never - sing his songs - again....
He'll never dance between the stars - again....
He'll never - laugh - again....
No he'll never ever - laugh - again....
Or, since I always like to put endings on songs
