[Verse 1]
      A6         C                    G             F#m   
In my eyes, indisposed.         In disguises no one knows
          Fsus4          E              Asus2  G     Bb
Hides the face, lies the snake  and the sun in my disgrace.
        A6           C                    G                   F#m
Boiling heat, Summer stench.   'neath the black the sky looks dead.
        Fsus4            E              Asus2     G       Bb      N.C.
Call my name through the cream  and I'll hear you scream again.

[Verse 2]
      A6             C                    G               F#m   
Stuttering, cold and damp.      Steal the warm wind tired friend.
          Fsus4           E                   Asus2   G        Bb
Times are gone for honest men   and sometimes far too long for snakes.
      A6               C              G               F#m   
In my shoes, a walking sleep.   In my youth, I pray to keep.
       Fsus4      E                    Asus2      G      Bb       N.C.
Heaven send Hell away.          No one sings like you anymore.

           F                    E                  D       C
Black hole sun        won't you come?    Won't you come? 
           F                    E           Asus2  G       C
