QUICKSAND- David Bowie

G Am  G  Am  G  Am  G  Am

    C
I'm closer to the Golden Dawn
                                     G
Immersed in Crowley's uniform of imagery
     C
I'm living in a silent film
                                        G
Portraying Himmler's sacred realm of dream reality
     Eb
I'm frightened by the total goal
     F(VII)
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

          D
I'm the twisted name on Garbo's eyes
                                            A
I'm living proof of Churchill's lies, I'm destiny
     D
I'm torn between the light and dark
                                         A
Where others see their targets, divine symmetry
 F
Should I kiss the viper's fang
    G
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

CHORUS:
 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

Great tab but the Adim sounds better if you play it like this: xx4545

That B7 in the chorus is a Cdim7 (x3424x), but otherwise sounded good. Not sure on the chord phrasings in the chorus, though
