[Intro]
| D/A A | E A | E/A A | D E |
| D/A A | E A | E/A A | D E |


[Verse]
   D/A             A           E           A
In death, you face life with a child and a wife
          E/A                A           D     E
Who sleep-walks through your dreams into walls
         D/A        A             E            A
You're a soldier of mercy, you're cold and you curse
        E/A       A            D      E
"He who cannot be trusted must fall."


[Chorus]
D/A   A     E
Loneliness, tenderness, 
D         A       E
High society, notoriety
    D             A/C#           E/B     A
You fight for the throne and you travel alone
  D                   E
Unknown as you slowly sink
                      | A   Asus4 | A   Asus4 |
And there's no time to think


[Interlude]
| D/A A | E A | E/A A | D E |


[Verse]
       D/A     A             E               A
In the Federal City you been blown and shown pity
   E/A         A         D      E
In secret, for pieces of change
    D/A       A                E           A
The empress attracts you but oppression distracts you
       E/A            A           D      E
And it makes you feel violent and strange


[Chorus]
D/A A   E
Memory, ecstasy
D/A A      E
Tyranny, hypocrisy
    D             A/C#           E/B     A
Betrayed by a kiss on a cool night of bliss
  D                   E
In the valley of the missing link
                      | A   Asus4 | A   Asus4 |
And you have no time to think


[Interlude]
| D/A A | E A | E/A A | D E |


[Verse]
D/A         A                      E              A
Judges will haunt you, the country priestess will want you
E/A          A           D      E
Her worst is better than best
     D/A            A                E              A     [ E/A ]
I've seen all these decoys through a set of deep turquoise eyes
      A       D         E
And I feel so depressed


[Chorus]
D/A   A     E
China doll, alcohol
  D/A A     E
Duality, mortality
D       A/C#          E/B     A
Mercury rules you and destiny fools you
         D                        E
Like the plague, with a dangerous wink
                      | A   Asus4 | A   Asus4 |
And there's no time to think


[Interlude]
| D/A A | E A | E/A A | D E |


[Verse]
     D/A          A                    E         A
Your conscience betrayed you when some tyrant waylaid you
          E/A       A             D      E
Where the lion lies down with the lamb
         D/A          A           E               A
I'd have paid off the traitor and killed him much later
    E               A          D      E
But that's just the way that I am


[Chorus]
D/A A     E
Paradise, sacrifice
   D/A A     E
Mortality, reality
        D           A/C#            E/B          A
But the magician is quicker and his game is much thicker 
     D                      E
Than blood and blacker than ink
                      | A   Asus4 | A   Asus4 |
And there's no time to think


[Interlude]
| D/A A | E A | E A | D E |


[Verse]
D/A       A          E            A
Anger and jealousy's all that he sells us
        E                A         D      E
He's content when you're under his thumb
D/A      A             E             A
Madmen oppose him, but your kindness throws him
      E           A             D      E
To survive it you play deaf and dumb


[Chorus]
D/A A     E
Equality, liberty
  D/A A      E
Humility, simplicity
    D                  A/C#               E/B          A
You glance through the mirror and there's eyes staring clear
       D                        E
At the back of your head as you drink
                      | A   Asus4 | A   Asus4 |
And there's no time to think


[Interlude]
| D/A A | E A | E A | D E |


[Verse]
D/A         A          E           A
Warlords of sorrow and queens of tomorrow
     E           A           D      E
Will offer their heads for a prayer
          D/A        A                E       A
You can't find no salvation, you have no expectations
   E        A         D      E
Anytime, anyplace, anywhere


[Chorus]
D/A  A   E
Mercury, gravity
  D/A A    E
Nobility, humility
    D              A/C#             E/B        A
You know you can't keep her and the water gets deeper
        D                    E
That is leading you onto the brink
                      | A   Asus4 | A   Asus4 |
But there's no time to think


[Interlude]
| D/A A | E A | E  A | D E |


[Verse]
       D/A           A       E           A
You've murdered your vanity, buried your sanity
    E            A          D      E
For pleasure you must now resist
D/A     A           E           A
Lovers obey you but they cannot sway you
        E        A         D      E
They're not even sure you exist


[Chorus]
D/A  A     E
Socialism, hypnotism
D/A   A       E
Patriotism, materialism
D            A/C#         E/B         A
Fools making laws for the breaking of jaws
        D                         E
And the sound of the keys as they clink
                      | A   Asus4 | A   Asus4 |
But there's no time to think


[Interlude]
| D/A A | E A | E/A A | D E |


[Verse]
    D/A             A         E           A       E
The bridge that you travel on goes to the Babylon girl
         A           D      E
With the rose in her hair
     D/A         A               E         A
Starlight in the East and you're finally released
       E                 A          D      E
You're stranded but with nothing to share


[Chorus]
D/A  A   E
Loyalty, unity
D/A A      E
Epitome, rigidity
          D             A/C#       E/B         A
You turn around for one real last glimpse of Camille
           D                       E
'Neath the moon shinin' bloody and pink
                      | A   Asus4 | A   Asus4 |
And there's no time to think


[Interlude]
| D/A A | E A | E A | D E |


[Verse]
D/A         A            E            A
Bullets can harm you and death can disarm you
    E            A        D      E
But no, you will not be deceived
D/A             A             E                 A
Stripped of all virtue as you crawl through the dirt
        E            A        D      E
You can give but you cannot receive


[Chorus]
   D/A     A
No time to choose
         E
When the truth must die
   D/A     A
No time to lose 
   E
Or say goodbye
   D          A/C#         E/B           A
No time to prepare for the victim that's there
   D                 E
No time to suffer or blink
               | A   Asus4 | A   Asus4 |
And no time to think


[Ootro]
| D/A A | E A | E A | D E |
| D/A A | E A | E A | D E |
| D/A A | E A | E A | D E | D
