                These chords are pretty much accurate for the whole song
but yea, just like play with the song it should work out perfect!


Intro {x4}
G x8 (play along with the      
      song to find the beat)

      G (hold until the end of 'quicksand')
Over land, I traveled time and space and quicksand 
        G    
And for sixty days I knew no other road 
    G              
And through the maelstrom, which turned in time with the kick drum 
I was swallowed and twisted and spit out on a coast
    G 
And in this place there stands a gate that leads to the heart of the city 
And I've spent seven years and a sea of fears in this broken mirror of a city 

C                                                        G   
Listen to the streets there's a heartbeat missing in the city 
Sweet sunlight, I can see it in my mind's eye 
And I remember feeling alright 
And I saw black clouds and Turin shrouds and it smelled of a faded empire 

G
It's all concrete and steel, we're asleep at the wheel, and the mayor's just a gun for hire
 
C                                                        G
Listen to the streets there's a heartbeat missing in the city 
C                                                      G
Listen to the sound there's a time bomb ticking in the city 
G
I've heard the song the morning sings 
Outside the gate is everything 
C
Let in the light! Let in the light! 
G
Streetwalker said to me she has no need for history
C 
She has the key she has the key 
G
Sweet sunlight, I can see it in my mind's eye 
C
Let in the light! Let in the light! 
G (slow down tempo)
Waking up from a dream where I was the stone and you were the stream 
Chemical City isn't all that you need but it's all that you're getting and they've hidden the key 
C                                                        G
Listen to the streets there's a heartbeat missing in the city
C                                                      G
Listen to the sound there's a time bomb ticking in the city 
I said this place is an unnatural disaster 
And I'm a visitor here so I asked her: 
C                                  G
Where are the trees, where are the trees? 
And she said free yourself from history 
C                            G
That is the key! That is the key! 
Sweet sunlight, I can see it in my mind's eye
C                          G (speed up - ROCK and ROLL)  
I see the light! I see the light! 

G(2 bars of 4:4 strumming)  C x8 (same rythem as G intro)

G (steady palm muted strumming)
The gate is gone now, you better run {sing this x4} 
G (louder)
Can you feel it? There's a heartbeat missing in the city 
When all the fat cats are hissing at your pity 
Yeah the gate is gone so you better run
           G            C
You better run, run run run...
           G            C
You better run, run run run...
           G        C!    
You better ru-------n!
