                This song is my favorite from David Bowie. I saw him play it with Robert Smith live on
David Bowie's 50th. B-day and it was very cool. Here it is, the "Honkey Dory" version. (it is 
the same as the live one).

||INTRO||
G Am G Am G Am G Am
   
     C
I'm closer to the Golden Dawn 
Immersed in Crowley's uniform 
G
Of imagery 
    C
I'm living in a silent film 
Portraying Himmler's sacred realm 
    G
Of dream reality 
Eb
I'm frightened by the total goal 
F2
Drawing to the ragged hole 
     G              Em       C
And I ain't got the power anymore 
                              G Am   Asus2  A  
No I ain't got the power anymore 



       D
I'm the twisted name on Garbo's eyes 
Living proof of Churchill's lies 
     A 
I'm destiny 
    D
I'm torn between the light and dark 
Where others see their targets 
   A
Divine symmetry 
  F
Should I kiss the viper's fang 
  G
Or herald loud the death of Man 
  A               F#m                  D
I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought 
     D       Dsus2           A
And I ain't got the power anymore 



A        E             F#m
Don't believe in yourself 
        B7             E
Don't deceive with belief 
             Em                 Bm
Knowledge comes with death's release 
   Adim           A         F#m          C#m       E
oh   oh   ohh    ho   oh    oh    ohh      ho    ohh


          D 
I'm not a prophet or a stone age man 
Just a mortal with the potential of a superman 
    A
I'm living on 
    D
I'm tethered to the logic of Homo Sapien 
Can't take my eyes from the great salvation 
    A
Of bull*** faith 
       F
If I don't explain what you ought to know 
        G
You can tell me all about it 
On the next Bardo 
    A                F#m                D
I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thought 
      D          Dsus2         A
And I ain't got the power anymore 



A        E             F#m
Don't believe in yourself 
        B7             E
Don't deceive with belief 
             Em                 Bm
Knowledge comes with death's release 
   Adim           A         F#m          C#m       E
oh   oh   ohh    ho   oh    oh    ohh      ho    ohh



A        E             F#m
Don't believe in yourself 
        B7             E
Don't deceive with belief 
             Em                 Bm
Knowledge comes with death's release 
   Adim           A         F#m          C#m       E
oh   oh   ohh    ho   oh    oh    ohh      ho    ohh
