HERE ARE THE FINGERINGS FOR THE WEIRD CHORDS BELOW:


   F/A             Ab/C            G/B           A/E
E|-X-------|   E|---X-----|   E|----3----|   E|---X-----|

Bb                                F/A                 Eb
I press on the elastic sheet, I'm breathing through a slice
G                  Bb                Dd                   B
'Are they worms or are the serpents?' bubbled through the ice

Ab/C                   B      G/B                F
The source was quite invisible, the ever-present voice
      A/E                E                 B                 Bb
While skating, both legs tracing different shapes, I made my choice

INTRO RIFF HERE:

Next verse has the same chords, except that just before going to a chorus, the last 
is an E instead of a Bb.

Chorus:
G                  D
He's fallen on the ice it cracks
Dm7              C
Will he plunge in and join me here?
G                     D
Meets my eyes to my surprise
F                           D
Laughs the full light of my frown

My double wants to pull me down

E
