Dancing as the boat goes down
(on Fear of god album)

Am          F         G
at first we knew the sight 
Am          F           C       G
brimming with gleaming golden light
Am          F         G
as soon as we got there 
Am             F          C         G
i knew it would end in a great big fight

          Am           G        F          G
there was dancing and singing crying and ringing
Am                   G    F
dancing as the boat goes down
Am                   G    F
dancing as the boat goes down

by now we were lost for words 
they were following us in great big herds
as soon as we made the bay 
swimming away from the circling birds

there was dancing and singing crying and ringing
dancing as the boat goes down
dancing as the boat goes down

G                             F
it was never said what they really did
G                             F
but we all knew when they ran and hid

we could only watch the sky 
and wonder on the reason why 
so many were lost 
fighting for that place on high

there was dancing and singing crying and ringing
dancing as the boat goes down
dancing as the boat goes down

it was never said what they really did
but we all knew when they ran and hid

there was dancing and singing crying and ringing
dancing as the boat goes down
Am           G        F          G
dancing and singing crying and ringing
they were moving below the waves
they would never know the sun again
