    x4 
    AbmF#E
    Standing knee deep in cold water 
    AbmF#
    swiftly moving somehow I 
    E
    knew I'd lost something 
    AbmF#E
    x2 
    AbmF#E
    Wading waist deep I saw a book there in 
    AbmF#E
    the river waiting for me to find it there 
    AbmF#E
    I tried to read it neck deep treading water 
    AbmF#E
    but the tide it pulled me out to sea 
    E
    Then with water in my eyes the words 
    Abm
    began to rise from their place 
    E
    They were beautiful and dread 
    Abm
    I reached for them and fed on each phrase 
    C#m
    They were honey on my lips but 
    DE
    then a bitter twist in my side 
    C#m
    I knew they'd lay me in my grave 
    B/D#E
    (hold) 
    "Is there no one who can save me?" I cried
    AbmF#E
    Post Chorus: x2 
    AbmB
    Sinking down deep 
    Ebm
    through cold water 
    C#mAbm
    heavy silence shadows 
    F#EbmF#E
    stirring in the gloom 
    AbmF#
    What things that lay 
    EbmEC#m
    sleeping down deep in 
    Abm
    the darkness woke then 
    F#EbmF#E
    to find me in that tomb? 
    E
    Then with water in my eyes the words 
    Abm
    began to rise from their place 
    E
    They were beautiful and dread 
    Abm
    I reached for them and fed on each phrase 
    C#m
    They were honey on my lips but 
    DE
    then a bitter twist in my side 
    C#m
    I knew they'd lay me in my grave 
    B/D#EF#
    (hold) 
    "Is there no one who can save me?" I cried
    B
    And when I lost all hope to look 
    F#Bb
    someone took that heavy 
    E
    book from my hands all 
    B
    its weight they set aside after 
    EbmF#E
    they had satisfied its demands 
    Abm
    I felt white and black reverse 
    F#BE
    and the lifting a curse from my heart 
    Abm
    Then like one receiving sight 
    F#EbmEF#
    I beheld a brilliant light in the dark
