Van der Graaf Generator - Sleepwalkers
Intro Dm C Bb C Dm C Bb C At night, this mindless army Dm C Bb C Ranks unbroken by dissent Dm C Bb Is moved into action Am Bb C And their pace does not relent Dm C Bb C In step, with great precision Dm C Bb C These dancers of the night Dm C Bb Advance against the darkness - Am How implacable their might! Bb Eyes undulled by moon Am Bb F Their arms and legs akimbo Am Bb They walk and live, hoping soon Am Bb C Dm To surface from this limbo Am G F Their minds, anticipating the dawn of the day G F Em Shall never know what's waiting mere insight away F Dm Too far, too soon Dm C Bb Senses dimmed in semi-sentience Dm C Bb Only wheeling through this plane Dm C Bb Only seeing fragmented images Am Bb C Prematurely curtailed by the brain Dm C Bb But breathing, living, knowing Dm C Bb In some measure at least Dm C Bb The soul which roots the matter Am Of both Beauty and the Beast Am Bb From what tooth or claw does murder spring Am Bb F From what flesh and blood does passion? Am Bb Both cut through the air with the pendulum's swing Am Bb C Dm In deadly but delicate fashion Am G F And every range of feeling is there in the dream G F Em And every logic's reeling in the force of the scream F Dm The senses sting Am G F And though I may be dreaming and reality stalls G F Em I only know the meaning of sight and that's all F E Dm D And that's nothing D A Dm A Am Ab The columns of the ni-ght ad-van-ce D A Dm A Am Ab Infectiously, their cryp-tic dan-ce D A Ab Am Ab Gathers converts to the fold - Ab G Ab G In time the whole raw world will pace these same steps Ab On into the same bitter end ( Eb Eb7 Ab C# Ab ) ( Eb Eb7 Ab Fm G ) ( G7 Cm Dm F Am C B ) D Am Ab G Somnolent muster now the dancing dead D Am Ab G Forsake the shelter of their secure beds D Am Ab G Awaken to a slumber whose depths they dread Ab G As if the ground they tread would give way C E Ab G Beneath the solemn weight of their conception C I'd search the hidden corners E Of all this world A D Make reason of the sensory whorl C#m Am If I only had time B Am But soon the dream is en-ded ( Dm G F D ) ( Dm D C Bb ) ( D C D Bb C ) Dm C Bb C Tonight, before you lay down Dm C Bb C To the sweetness of your sleep Dm C Bb Do you question your surrender A Bb C To the drop from Lover's Leap Dm C Bb C Or does the anaesthetic darkness Dm C Bb C Take hold on its very own? Dm C Bb Does your body rise in service A Bb C With not one dissenting groan? A Bb These waking dreams of life and death A In the mirror Bb F Are twisted and buckled A Bb Lashes flicker, a catch of breath A Bb C Dm Skin whitening at the knuckles Am G F The army of sleepwalkers shake their limbs and are loose G F E And though I am a talker, I can phrase no excuse F D Not to rise again D A Dm A Am Ab In the Chorus of the night-time I belong D A Dm A Am Ab And I, like you, must dance to that moonlight song D A Ab G Ab G And in the end I too must pay the cost of this life Ab G If all is lost none is known C E A D And how could we lose what we've never owned? C E Oh, I'd search out every knowledge that I could find A D Unravel all the mysteries of mind C#m If I only had time Am If I only had time Bm A But soon my time is ended
