The Final Cut
Pink Floyd - The Final Cut (Waters) F F C Through the fish-eyed lens of tear stained eyes____ Bb add9 F I can barely define the shape of this moment in time. F F C And far from flying high in clear blue skies___, Bb add9 F I'm spiralling down to the hole in the ground where I hide. Bb F If you negotiate the minefield in the drive, Bb F And beat the dogs and cheat the cold electronic eyes, Bb C Dm And if you make it past the shotgun in the hall, Gm7 Dial the combination, open the priesthole /C F And if I'm in I'll tell you what's behind the wall. Am F There's a kid who had a big hallucination Am C Making love to girls in magazines. Bb Dm He wonders if you're sleeping with your new found faith. Gm7 Could anybody love him /C F F C Bb add9 F Or is it just a crazy dream___? F C And if I show you my dark side Bb F Will you still hold me tonight? F C And if I open my heart to you Bb And show you my weak side, F What would you do? Bb F Would you sell your story to Rolling Stone? Bb Would you take the children away F And leave me alone? Bb C And smile in reassurance Dm As you whisper down the phone, Gm7 Would you send me packing, /C F Or would you take me home? Am F Am C Bb Dm Gm7 /C F Am F Thought I oughta bare my naked feelings, Am C Thought I oughta tear the curtain down. Bb I held the blade in trembling hands, Dm Gm7 Prepared to make it but just then the phone rang, G C Bb add9 F I never had the nerve to make the final cut.
