The Idol  Brooker-Reid      (a few fill ins and upbeats are missing)
Fm      Fm/Eb Bb7/D  Db  Gb
Oh the idol, 
Ebm     Ebm/Db  Ab7/C   Ab     Db  Eb
Oh the idol                         


Fm             Fm/Eb           Bb7/D    Db Gb
They knew the monster's every trick 
Ebm            Gb/Dd         Ab7/C      
They knew his secrets every stitch 

bass:AbCDbEb Ab

Fm     Fm/Eb         Bb7/D     Db   Gb
All of it had been a game 
Ebm      Gb/Db     Ab7/C    Bb   Db
Nothing but a charlatan 

Eb             Db    Ab              Eb
Perhaps there was a chance of coming through 
Eb      Db           Ab               Eb
It even seemed that he might think it too 
Gm                Cm       Eb/Bb     F (bass:fga)  Bb  (bass Ab
But he could see no point in diving in 
G7                 Cm         Cm/Bb  F   F/A Bb
  But he knew that he would neither sink nor swim 

    Ab       Cm/G       Fm      Fm/C Fm/D  Eb    Eb4-3-2-1-6-1
And so they found he'd nothing   left  to   say 
Ab     Cm/G    Fm  Fm/C  Fm/D Eb
Just another idol turned to clay 


Db  Eb   

It seemed to them he must know what to do 
They knew that only he could pull them through 
They thought that he would make a plan 
He'd work it out, he'd understand 

Like drowning men they clutched at every straw 
They knew that he had saved them all before 
But he could see no point in diving in 
He knew that he would neither sink nor swim
