    NOTE: The note after the chord name marks that the bass
    note is different from the root note of the chord.
    For example, "Abm/Eb" means this is still recognized
    as an Abm chord, but the bass plays an Eb.
    Bm
     
    BmA
    I got sunshine in my stomach 
    GBm
    Like I just rocked my baby to sleep. 
    BA/E
    I got sunshine in my stomach 
    G/DCG/DC
    But I can't keep me from creeping sleep,

    Sleep, deep in the deep.

    Ebm
    Rockface moves to press my skin 
    Bbm
    White liquid turn sour within 
    Ebm
    Turn fast - turn sour 
    Bbm
    Turn sweat - turn sour. 
    Ebm
    Must tell myself that I'm not here. 
    Bbm
    I'm drowning in a liquid fear. 
    Ebm
    Bottled in a strong compression, 
    Bbm
    My distortion shows obsession 
    EbmBbm
    In the cave 
    EbmBbm
    Get me out of this cave! 
    EbAb
    If I keep my self-control, 
    EbAb
    I'll be safe in my soul. 
    EbAb
    And the childhood belief 
    EbAb
    Brings a moment's relief, 
    C#m
    But my cynic soon returns 
    Ab
    And the lifeboat burns. 
    C#mAF#
    My spirit just never learns. 
    Ebm
    Stalactites, stalagmites 
    Bbm
    Shut me in, lock me tight. 
    Ebm
    Lips are dry, throat is dry. 
    Bbm
    Feel like burning, stomach churning, 
    Ebm
    I'm dressed up in a white costume 
    Bbm
    Padding out leftover room. 
    EbmBbm
    Body stretching, feel the wretching 
    EbmBbm
    In the cage 
    EbmBbm
    Get me out of the cage! 
    EbAb
    In the glare of a light, 
    EbAb
    I see a strange kind of sight; 
    EbAb
    Of cages joined to form a star 
    EbAb
    Each person can't go very far; 
    C#m
    All tied to their things 
    Ab
    They're netted by their strings, 
    C#mAF#
    Free to flutter in memories of their wasted wings. 
    (Bear with me here. I'll try to space the chords depending
    on timing, but ultimately you'll have to listen to the
    song to figure it out.)

    Outside the cage I see my Brother John, 
    Eb
    He turns his head so slowly round. 
    Bb
    I cry out Help! before he can be gone, 
    EbBb
    And he looks at me without a sound. 
    Ddim
    And I shout out 'John please help me!' 
    EbBb
    But he does not even want to try to speak. 
    EbBb
    I'm helpless in my violent rage 
    AbEbFm7Eb

    EbmBbm
     
    Ebm
    In a trap, feel a strap 
    Bbm
    Holding still. Pinned for kill. 
    Ebm
    Chances narrow that I'll make it, 
    Bbm
    In the cushioned straight-jacket. 
    Ebm
    Just like 22nd Street, 
    Bbm
    They got me by my neck and feet. 
    Ebm
    Pressures building, can't take more. 
    Ebm
    My headaches charge, earaches roar. 
    EbmBbm
    In this pain, 
    EbmBbm
    Get me out of this pain! 
    EbAb
    If I could change to liquid, 
    EbAb
    I could fill the cracks up in the rocks. 
    EbAb
    I know that I am solid 
    EbAb
    And I am my own bad luck. 
    C#mAb
    Outside John disappears, my cage dissolves, 
    C#mAF#
    without any reason my body revolves.

    Keep on turning,

    Turning around, 
    EbmBbm
    spinning around. 
    EbmBbm
    - repeatedly. 
    End on Ebm.
