Color de Fondo
Lyrics by Jez Cunningham (confirmed to be correct by Jez personnally!). the chords are
own effort though, and comments, corrections or sugestions welcome.
(Chords with an * denote a few twiddles with the chords for added effect: lifting of
fingers to get chord variations etc..play with it!)
Millions of mega-tons, the power of a thousand suns
Fallout sky for years to come, a pyroclastic grave.
We beached the boat when it ran dry, we pleaded with each other, why?
And in our hearts we wished weâd died before we climbed aboard
Well I know it is a weak defence, a lifetime of indifference
Paid the tax and stalled the rent, I didnât rock the boat.
I Ignored the pilgrim suicides, their human bombs a rising tide
With sanctions failed and trident fired they finally came for me
Bm Em Bm Em
Whispered tales of creed and flag, nowhere to ship home the body bags
C G D*
Go pay the ferryman and leave their tags rusting on the shore
Iâm on the run my MP3 downloads global catastrophe
Like strangeloveâs darkest fantasy, warheads filled the sky
Now a refugee on a Russian sub, a deal struck with little Odessan thugs
How right they were to call us mugs as they waved us out to sea.
(the rest follows the same chords)
After 30 days of poisoned flood, the engines cracked the diesels mud
Biblical tide of sweat and blood we ran the boat aground
And fighting with each other, why?
regretting more weâd never trie
in our hearts weâd already died before we hit the beach
