Verse 1
     E                 Dsus2     Asus2
I've seen your severed head at a banquet for the dead,
E                  Dsus2            Asus2
All dressed up for dinner looked so fine.
     E              Dsus2     Asus2
Your shining silver salver so tastefully powdered
         E      Dsus2           A
with the finest milit'ry quick lime.

||:E    |D    |A    |A    :||

Verse 2
    E               Dsus2      Asus2
Now try and picture this, as I gave you a kiss
    E             Dsus2          Asus2
The apple in your mouth slips in mine.
    E         Dsus2      Asus2
The orchestra played the sweetest serenade,
   E             Dsus2         A
We laughed as we put away your wine.

Pre-Chorus 1
B
So raise your glasses,
         Asus2           E
Here's a toast to wasted lives,
F#m7alt       Emaj7/D#            Asus2
May all their ghosts come back to haunt you
                       B - fill 1 (into chorus)
and tell you how they died

Chorus 1
(B)        E(barre)          Badd4              Aadd9(fill 2)    Badd4
How do you sleep, how do you last the night and keep the dogs at bay?
           E             Badd4               Aadd9(fill 2)Badd4
How do you feel when you close your eyes and try to drift away?
        Emaj7    F#m7alt             Emaj7/D# F#m7alt
Does it feel any better now, does it mean any more?
         E        F#m7alt            Amaj7
When the angel of death comes knock, knocking
    B               E
And banging at your door?

verse 3
     E               Dsus2        Asus2
When all the fun was over,      I put you on my shoulder
E             Dsus2        Asus2
Took you home away from it all.
E             Dsus2        Asus2
Shot down and claimed,     mounted and framed
E          Dsus2         A
Tastefully hung up on my wall.


Pre-chorus 2
       B
Are my dreams your nightmares?
  Asus2              E
I hope they all come true.
F#m7alt      Emaj7/D#          Asus2
Get off your knees the party's over,
                   B - (fill 1 into chorus)
I'm coming home to you
