Every Sunday morning
A7                A6
The spider in the window

Judas on the ceiling

The Devil in my bed

I guess Easter's never coming

They're not confined within your mind."

Am
Thought disorder, dream control
 
Now they read my mind on the radio

I feel elated, I feel depressed
 
Sex is death, Death is sex
Em
    Says it right here on my Crucifix

[Breakdown: Dialogue by rap artist Prix-mo reading from the book "Cultural Revolution"]
A2
"I don't want to be here, cause of my
 A2(#5)
Suffering, cause of my illness
     A2
Only love is worth having, only
         G7sus4       G7
Love is what matters, loving every
G7sus4        G7
People on equal terms
Am7
"You've got to know who you're
Am7
Dealin' with because, like a stranger
Am7
A-heh, just might come in through
Am7
Here with a gun... and then, what
Am7
Would you do? (Heh.)
Am7
Everything is immaterial
Am7
'n' you know that reality is immaterial
Asus2                  A7    A6   Fmaj7#11/A
This is not reality
 
 
VERSE 4
    A5add9
I'm kneeling on the floor
A9/G
Staring at the wall
          A6add9/F#
Like the spider in the window
  Am9(b13)
I wish that I could speak
          Asus2
Is there fantasy in refuge?
A7
God in politicians?
         A6add9/F#
Should I turn on my religion?
 
These demons in my head tell me to

   I'm lying here in bed

Swear my skin is inside out
                   F5  F5(b5)
Just another Sunday morning
 F5      A5
Seen my diary on the newsstand
             A7
Seems we've lost the truth to quicksand
        F#5
It's a shame no one is praying
            F5          F5(b5)      F5
Cause these voices in my head keep saying
 
 
BRIDGE 1
A5              F5/A
"Love, just don't stare
C5                             D5/A
Reveal the Word when you're supposed to"
    B7/A
Withdrawn and introverted
   E5/A
Infectiously perverted
        F5/A
"Being laughed at and confused
         Gsus4     G5    Gsus2  G5        A5         F(b5)  Fmaj7#11
Keeps us pleasantly amused enough to stay"

Maybe I'm just Cassandra fleeting
A7
Twentieth century Icon bleeding

Can you rid me of my secrets?

Deliver us from Darkness?
