                                                 Hey!
Gm
Nine hours passed and how long will it last
          Bb                      C           (D)
says the man with the plan and a gun in his hand.
     Gm
He's scared but prepared it might be as he feared
           Bb                  C               (D)
are they still in control, and safe behind the wall.
       Gm
This evening's too quiet, oh we need a real riot
    Bb                        C           (D)
to shake and to break and to bite like a snake.
       Gm
We're stuck in this attic so bored and so static,
    Bb                                     C     D 
tomorrow they'll ask us to throw off our masks.
         Gm                           (Bb)
But the storm is a'coming 'cross the hills tonight,
         Eb           Bb            F
like a vein full of rain to the hearts that should fight.
      Gm                          Bb
The storm is a'coming 'cross the hills tonight,
        Eb             Bb              F                 Gm
like a vein full of rain to the hearts that should fight.

[Main theme 1x]

 Gm
Mary's like me she's a loser to be,
       Bb                     C           (D)
got a lock on her door and a bed on the floor.
           Gm
They will know they will win and then they'll come in.
          Bb                       C          (D)  
There's nothing you could say to lead them astray.
     Gm
We still live in silence like sworn threats of violence.
    Bb                        C                  (D)
I long for an end and it's coming round the bend.
       Gm
If we live through this night and we'd still be all right.
      Bb                C               D
We'd flee to Siam or a bar in Amsterdam.

         Gm                            Bb
But the storm is a'coming 'cross the hills tonight,
         Eb           Bb            F
like a vein full of rain to the hearts that should fight.
      Gm                          Bb
The storm is a'coming 'cross the hills tonight,
        Eb             Bb              F             Gm
like a vein full of rain to the hearts that should fight.
