[INTRO] 

Em  C/E  G/D  Cmaj7  Cm

[VERSE 1]

Em                                             C
 Whilst his mother's womb contained the growing Baal
                                        Bm/D
Even then the sky was waiting quiet and pale
                        Am
Naked, young, immensely marvellous
                B7                  Em
Like Baal loved it, when he came to us

[VERSE 2]

Em                                          C
 That same sky remained with him in joy and care
                                  Bm/D
Even when Baal slept peaceful and unaware
                        Am
At night a lilac sky, a drunken Baal
        B7                     Em
Turning pious as the sky grows pale

[VERSE 3]

Em                                      C
 So through hospital, cathedral, whiskey bar
                                      Bm/D     Bm
Baal kept moving onwards and just let things go
                                  Am
When Baal's tired, boys, Baal cannot fall far
                 B7/D#            Em
He will have his sky down there below

Em  C/E  G/D  Cmaj7  Cm

[VERSE 4]

Fm                                      Db    
 When the sinners congregate in shame together
                                     Cm
Baal lay naked, revelling in their distress
     Ab                            Bbm
Only sky, a sky that will go on forever
         C7                   Fm
Formed a blanket for his nakedness

[VERSE 5] 

Fm                                                Db
 And that lusty girl, the world, who'll laugh and yield
                                            Cm
To the men who'll stand the pressure of her thighs
          Ab                                    Bbm
Sometimes gave him love-bites, such as can't be healed
        C7                         Fm
Baal survived it, he just used his eyes

[VERSE 6]

Fm                                           Db
 And when Baal saw lots of corpses scattered round
                                              Cm/Eb
He felt twice the thrill, despite the lack of room
         Ab                            Bbm
"Space enough" said Baal, "they're not thick on the ground
       C7                        Fm
Space enough within this woman's womb"

Fm  C/E  Cm/Eb  Bb/D  Bbm/Db  C7  C7

[VERSE 7]

Em                                   C
Any vice for Baal has got its useful side
                                 Bm
It's the man who practice it, he can't abide
                                 Am
Vices have their point, once you see it as such
         B7                      Em
Stick to two for one will be too much

[VERSE 8]

Em                                             C
 Slackness, softness are the sort of things to shun
                                 G/D       G/B
Nothing could be harder than the quest for fun
                                 Am/C
Lots of strength is needed and experience too
                      B7/D#      Em
Swollen bellies can embarrass you

[LINK 3]

Em  C/E  G/D  Cmaj7  Cm

[VERSE 9]

Fm                                        Db
 Under gloomy stars and this poor veil of tears
                                       Cm/Eb
Baal will graze a pasture till it disappears
                                        Bbm
Once it's been digested to the forest's teeth
          C7                        Fm
Baal trod singing for a well earned sleep

[VERSE 10]

Fm                                        Db
 Baal can spot the vultures in the stormy sky
                                          Cm/Eb
As they wait up there to see if Baal will die
          Ab                                    Bbm
Sometimes Baal pretends he's dead, but vultures swoop
        C7                   Fm
Baal in silence dines on vulture-soup

[VERSE 11]

Fm                                        Db
 When the dark womb drags him down to its prize
                                              Cm/Eb
What's the world still mean to Baal, he's overfed
        Ab                              Bbm
So much sky is lurking still behind his eyes
           C7                        Fm
He'll just have enough sky when he's dead

[LINK 4]

Fm  C/E  Cm/Eb  Bb/D  Bbm/Db  C7  C7

[VERSE 12] 

Em                                               C
 Once the Earth's dark womb engulfed the rotting Baal
                                          Bm/D
Even then the sky was up there, quiet and pale
                        Am
Naked, young, immensely marvellous
B7                                     Em
 Like Baal loved it when he lived with us
