Chords

Guitar/synth chords I figured out for some songs, which I couldn’t find on the Internet.

Clan of Xymox – Evelyn

[Bm] We walked until the [D] sunlight died
How [G] could I breathe without your love
[Bm] Like others [D] we all fight
A[G]gainst the cruel cruel time

[E] A hundred [A] times a year
[E] The wind blows [A]
[E] A hundred [A] times a year
[E] The wind blows [A] through my [D] skin
Through my [C] skin

[Bm] All the choices and many voices
[G] Keep on telling me
It’s [Bm] you, Evelyn
It’s [G] you, Evelyn

We talked about wrong or right
I couldn’t agree I had to shout
Sometimes we all must fight
Against the cruel heart of doubt

A hundred times a year
We find out
A hundred times a year
We find out
By experience

All the choices and many voices
Keep on telling me
It’s you, Evelyn
It’s you, Evelyn

You keep the rain from falling
You keep the rain from falling
Down on me
Evelyn
Everything will die for you
Everyone will cry for you
Evelyn, Evelyn, Evelyn
You keep the rain from falling
Down on me

Of the Wand and the Moon – The Lone Decent

[C]This constant hum
Ringing out from [F]empty [C]halls
[e]Can you hear me through the [C]rubble, my love?
[C]The bleakest shroud
A coffin well [F]laid
Anointed by our [C]weakness, my love
[e]Embalmed with vacant [C]tears, my love

[d]I [F]brace myself [a]as my heart im[G]plodes
[d]Reach out for the [F]sunlight [a]never to un[G]fold
We [d]move through the sil[F]ence and [a]dive into dark[G]ness
Suc[d]cumb to the [F]emptiness [a]of this lone des[G]cent

These absent days
Forged in empty gaze
Shadowed by myself, my love?
A herald from above, my love?
Another bridge has burned
Another lesson learned
Nothing holds sway, my love
If I could I surely would, my love

I brace myself as my heart implodes
Reach out for the sunlight never to unfold
We move through the silence and dive into darkness
Succumb to the emptiness of this lone descent

Oh my little boy, what have you become?
A shadow of yourself, a moth caught in the sun?
We move through the silence and dive into darkness
Succumb to the emptiness of our lone descent

Rome – The Accidents of Gestures

You were [Am] wrong
You let hell invade you and you [Em] let me go
Love wants to be [Am] both, gentle and cruel
You were a fool, you should have [Em] known
And would you [Am] wear berries in your hair
For this batt[Em]alion of lovers?

And would you [Am] share this table
Set among the stones of your [Em] brothers?

I [Am] thought I had no wish to protect you, to conquer you
But [Em] now I have turned to you
So leave [Am] death and come to me
You will see, I’ll leave no [Em] scar on you

Yes, for [G] you were meant to be with me, [D] here
For we are built, trained, conditioned to disapp[C]ear
We shall stay in the shadows, in the meadows a[Em]fire
As thieves for hire

And [G] we shall remain invisible, for we travel li[D]ght
For we do not rush toward the light
And we dance if we [C] can with our eyes closed
All along the [Em] borders, all along the road

And we shall [Am] make our movements lighter
Like the boys [Em] on the wire
To re[Am]gain the joy and fierceness
Of the essential [Em] man
Cool [Am] out here, beside me
Cool out in the [Em] sands of Spain
Cool [Am] out and wash yourself in milk a[Em]gain

And [G] now you shall moan and you shall weep
And you shall loathe the other ch[D]eek, my friend
You can’t pretend to know life in every breath
To wound my [C] pride, to envy death
You didn’t come up with this cure and rest ass[Em]ured
Your longings never seemed pure

And each [G] time I will come
Each time I’ll be another
A si[D] nner, a saint, your enemy brother
I shall make you say [C] please
I shall have you on your [Em] knees

Wir haben unsere Welt verloren
Was übrig bleibt schleppen wir jetzt in Koffern
durch halb Europa
An alle Welt uns ausgeschenkt!
Vom Leben unbesiegt
Was uns eint ist der Verzicht!

Yes, for [G] you were meant to be with me, [D] here
For we are built, trained, conditioned to disapp[C]ear
We shall stay in the shadows, in the meadows a[Em]fire
As thieves for hire

And [G] we shall remain invisible, for we travel li[D]ght
For we do not rush toward the light
And we dance if we [C] can with our eyes closed
All along the [Em] borders, all along the road

And we shall [Am] make our movements lighter
like the boys [Em] on the wire
we shall [Am] make our movements lighter

Rome – Flowers From Exile

G-|—1—4—|
D-|—–4—4-|
A-|———–|
E-|-0———|

[E] I shall ask you for forgiveness
For all the things I’ve done
I [A] should have known better
But I won’t ask for love nor shelter
Think of me as one to remain unknown

For more than I you have been a face to hide
You have become a name to forget
Would you ever surrender?

We stay far from you who wait petrified
Inside your countries fortified
Your dread of the deep
So unlike our dread of sleep
You won’t quench this glow
You won’t stem this tide
For your conventions are ruin
Your tools are death to me
So how dare you molest the seas

You masters of deceit
Are you still surprised
At how our pain dissolves into sound
Into one voice
At this our loneliness more verdict than choice

More than I you have been a face to hide
You have become a stain to forget
A shame to reject
So, nevermind
All our fears, all our tears
Oh, no, nevermind
The flowers we send you!

Rome – Hate us and see if we mind

[Em] We could never have won this;
[C] We were fighting [D] lions

Now we’ve all but conquered fate,
So hate us, and see if we mind

Washing off the dust
Like the first rains of the raining season
And encircling rage and reason, we postponed our grieving
But the rains, they never seem to come

To have you here
To make you see
The wild hoax we pulled; it’s all over

What care for glory?
What care for thee?
By now, you know it’s all over.
All over.
All over.

To this house of stone we flock
Hiding like the snails between the reeds and rocks
And they’ll be searching the valleys in vain
As we’ll be waiting for the rain

A nation reborn; a lame shepherd
One must wait and go for the throat when hunting leopard
Now, we’re blinking back each tear
There’s no changing the balance of fear

To have you here
To make you see
The wild hoax we pulled; it’s all over

What care for glory?
What care for thee?
By now, you know it’s all over.
All over.
All over.

To have you here
To make you see
The wild hoax we pulled; it’s all over

What care for glory?
What care for thee?
By now, you know it’s all over.

To have you here
To make you see
The wild hoax we pulled; it’s all over

What care for glory?
What care for thee?
By now, you know
It’s all over
All over.
All over.
All over.

Rome – A Legacy of Unrest

[Em]Master, I praise you
I’ve come here to tame
The demands of the flesh
I’ve come to forget my name
We all thought that the moon
Should be turned to blood
And that its the worst thing
To want for one who comes not

But theres no[Am]thing left than to ob[C]ey
All [G] of their [Am] laws of wealth
Always [Em] fighting on both [G] sides
No den[F#m]ial, no den[Em]ial

Master, I serve you
And I serve the language
Of failure and doubt
I’ve come to sell you my anguish
We all thought that the moon
Should be turned to blood
Turned to blood
And that its the worst thing
To try to please and please not

But theres no[Am]thing left than to ob[C]ey
All [G] of their [Am] laws of wealth
Always [Em] fighting on both [G] sides
No den[F#m]ial, no den[Em]ial

But theres no[Am]thing left than to ob[C]ey
All [G] of their [Am] laws of wealth
Always [Em] fighting on both [G] sides
No den[F#m]ial, no den[Em]ial

And it feels like spring again
We’ve sealed this feel again
Though you tried to blind me
I still saw you blush
It feels like spring again
We’ve sealed this feel again

Though you tried to blind me
Though you tried to blind me
We do not pause, we do not rest
So do not speak, please do not test
My nerve like this, in a season like this
We do not pause, we do not rest
So do not speak, please do not test
My nerve like this, in a season like this

You tried to blind me
You tried to blind me…

Rome – Odessa

 G-|----------|---------|-------|
 D-|----------|---------|-------|
 A-|----------|-----2---|-0-0/4-|
 E-|-0-00/4\0-|-4-4---4-|-------|

It is but a dated flower i bring to you
it is but a violet glistening with dew
for in our hearts our love for you lies unrevealed

a stale ro[E]mance and the so[G#m]litude we share
have dragged [A] you to the beach to find me there
every pro[E]mise undone [G#m]glittering in the sun
in the [A] golden sway of violence
that morning you came and you stood in disbelief
in longing and shame – the presentiment of grief
to forgive and to define this treachery of mine
you took off your clothes in silence

This sweet blue secrecy, the demands of destiny

Now who will serve your pleasure, who will serve your greed?
now that the men you treasured belong to the fleet
and watch the morrow’s tide, that frail and beautiful bride
what a very strange season this is

From the tender ax of springtime, defying the snows
to the streaming summer’s hatchet she rose
now all covered with lime under an indifferent sky
we smother everything in kisses

Will we know eternity? Will we forge a way to see?

Who will serve your pleasure, who will serve your greed?
now that the men you treasured belong to the fleet
and watch the morrow’s tide, that frail and beautiful bride
what a very strange season this is

From the tender ax of springtime, defying the snows
to the streaming summer’s hatchet she rose
now all covered with lime under an indifferent sky
we smother everything in kisses
oh, we smother everything in kisses

She Wants Revenge – Broken Girl

[Bm] She buys a new dress for the party,
[F#m] She always looks good in red.
[D] Turns around in front of the mirror
[C#m] And disappears inside of her head.

She wonders if he’ll even remember,
She asked him in a casual way.
Just incase he didn’t want to go with her,
In that event she knew just what she would say.

She thought of maybe asking a girlfriend,
Even though she only has one or two.
She’s always done much better with boys anyway,
So who needs girlfriends?

Pacing nervous across the floor of her bedroom,
Gripping tight the phone in her hand.
Fighting beck the rush of emotions,
And dreaming of just having a man.

It’s a [Bm] long walk, and the music is loud.
She sees an [A] old friend,
As she walks through the crowd.
Puts on her [D] best smile,
But underneath she’s a broken [F#m] girl.
It’s a [Bm] long walk, and the music is loud.
She sees an [A] old friend,
As she walks through the crowd.
Puts on her [D] best smile,
But she will always be a broken [F#m] girl.

She struggles with an awful decision,
Stay at home or walk in alone.
Her mother does her best to console her,
Her father doesn’t know what to say.

Puts on her makeup, puts on the new dress.
Holds her head high, then gets in the car.
Tells herself that no one will notice,
Assuming she can make it that far.

On the way she imagines reactions.
Cupped hands whispering into ears.
Secretly hoping that he’ll be there watching,
And she’s also hoping he won’t.

Walking tentative alone up the driveway,
Sees some people smoking off to the side.
She stops and waits until they go back in,
Crosses her fingers and follows behind.

He’ll never get you,
He will never understand.
He’ll never get you, you can find a better man.

Sudeten Creche – Are Kisses Out of Fashion?

[Am]Do you know the [Em] price you pay [C] for your oppor[G]tunist [D] ways
[Am] Tomorrow may [Em] find the day that your [C]  random emotions just [G] break a[D] way
[Am] And [Em] leave you [C]there. And [G] leave you [D] there
[Am] And [Em] leave you [C] there [G] [D]

No-one to touch, hurt someone now like you inside
Say anything, but you can’t decide, you can’t decide
Start again at the beginning, try to fear (feel?) the things in your heart
But now you are deciding to reform your mind while engaged in modern living
Engaged in modern living

No-one to touch, hurt someone now like you inside
Say anything, but you can’t decide, you can’t decide
Are kisses so out of fashion
To attract a lips attention
Oh I love to be here, I love to be here
And leave you there. And leave you there

Are kisses out of fashion?

Swans – She Crys (For Spider)

 A-|-3-5-7-8-5-7-3-5-5-|

[C] You can hear them out [Dm] there
[C] They’re gonna follow you [Dm] down
[C] On the rocks, in the [Dm] air
[C] Inside your mind they [Dm] made you scared

Of all the lies that have been told
Of all the hearts now that have been sold
Of all the tears that’ve been disowned
Those cries are gonna swallow up the seeds
You have sown

So hold on and make it last
Hold on for your last holy breath
Hold on for your faith
It has lapsed

Those cries like an acid
They will eat through your mask
Those cries like a hammer
They will nail down your past
Those cries gonna swallow up
Your last dying gasp

You can hear them out there
They come inside and ride you slow
They come inside where they will grow
Without a hope without a dream
Without anything
Without a demon to turn the key

Of all the lies now that have been told
Of all the hearts now that have been sold
Of all the tears that’ve been disowned
Those cries are gonna swallow up the seeds you have sown
Those cries gonna getcha chill you down to the bone
Those cries like an acid they will eat through your mask
Those cries gonna swallow up your last dying gasp

So hear them now
All the dead-eyed souls who’ve spent their lives
And just grown old
So hear the cries
From the dead-eyed souls who’ve spent their lives-
Now they’re turning cold

Venus in Furs – In My Velvet Cage

[Dm]Call me [C]liar
[E]I half ex[Dm]pect you to
Whip band moves once
Black glove remains
Battlefield clay
Mouth to mouth delay
Her halo towers
Above me again

Hold the light close
It gets so dark in here
Each spark reveals
Devil’s bouquet
Cellar blue
Love holds no charm for you
Whip hand moves twice
Whirls me around

You walk abroad
Tourists of the heart
Whip hand guides you
Pushed far away
Who’ll turn a page
See me in my velvet cage
Whip hand snakes out
Glove cracks down

Venus in Furs – Majordomo

D-|-6-8-6---|
A-|-------9-|

[Bb]These days I try
So hard to reach
Without [F] pulling
You’re charm[Bb]less, servile
So many times
Let me [F] be near you

You have the rhyme
Yours are the signs that we read

Our faithful conduct
Tell me again, Majordomo
Kid glove or halo
Hand over fist
Can’t you see me?

You have the rhyme
Yours are the signs that we read

Venus in Furs – Platonic Love

[A] Call it [G#m] esca[F#m]lation
[A]Call it a [G#m] means to an [F#m] end
[A]Question the [G#m] wealth of di[F#m]vision
[A] That makes us un[G#m]natural [F#m] friends

Such deep and hollow wounds
Platonic love bites rend
This is their mark of affliction
The lifebelt on which you depend

Look at the art that surrounds you
The dead things you’ve worked to arrange
New friends have locked up your talents
Platonic Love lies strange –

Call it escalation
Call it a means to an end
Question the wealth of division
That makes us unnatural friends
