Guitar chords

Thanks to Pete Wileman. Lyrics to all BSP songs can be found here


 

Albert's Eyes

A F#m D
The emotion in a stomach acid
A F#m D
Is equal to the depth of Albert's eyes
A F#m D
And all of the equations that were mastered
A F#m D
Belong to average ordinary life
A F#m D
Yeah I know, it's so natural
A F#m D
Yeah I know, I've been here before
Bm D F#m A
But only if I ask you
Bm D F#m
And maybe not at all
A F#m D
When you look down and see that you were playing
A F#m D
Upon the greatest oceanic truth
A F#m D
Yeah I mostly understand what you were saying
A F#m D
And after all there's quite a lot of proof

Bm D F#m A
But only if I ask you
Bm D F#m A
And maybe not at all
Bm D F#m A
Its getting colder in Alaska
Bm D F#m
But round here its getting warm

Ending
Bm D Bm D F#m


Blackout

C Am F
Welcoming the cool rain in of the astounding dawn
C Am F
Watch the birds hovering over Narrow Moor
C Am F
In deeper lines of deeper sleep, into the Tumuli
C Am F
All the pretty machinery under the sky
C Am
For you have drunk all your beer
F
Go drown your empty selves
C Am F F#
For then you will have lost it all the last of this island
G Am F G Am F
As you blackout, blackout again my love

C Am F

C Am F
So bring it down, let it fall, into a drizzling bliss
C Am F
Then we'll hyperventilate in the old forest
C Am
Then I will see all those things
F
Things that cannot be seen
C Am
For you have drunk all your beer
F
Go drown your empty selves
C Am
For then you will have lost it all
F
The last of this island

Break
Am Em F C
Am Em F C B


G Am F G Am

As you blackout, lookout again my love

F G Am F
Blackout again, my love


Carrion

Intro C D G Em x2

G D Bm C
Carry on inside of your heart
G D Bm C
Under the brine you won't notice the dark
G D Bm
Can stone and steel and horses heels
C
Ever explain the way you feel?
G D
From Scapa Flow to Rotherhithe,
Bm C
I felt the lapping of an ebbing tide

G D Bm C C

C D
Oh the heavy water how it enfolds
G Em
The salt, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
C D
Always, always, always the sea
G Em
Brilliantine mortality

C D G Em

G D Bm C

So irrigate your heart until you know you're complete
G D Bm C
And you're draped in kelp, below by 8,000 feet
G D Bm
My soul, she cried, I thought you'd died
C G
Amid fumes of formaldehyde
D Bm
You have been gone for so long
C G D
I felt the lapping of an ebbing tide
Bm C
I felt the lapping of an ebbing tide
C D
Oh the heavy water how it enfolds
G Em
The salt, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
C D
Always, always, always the sea
G Em
Brilliantine mortality

C D G Em x2
C D Em A


C D G Em
When this Corpus Christic isle became a land of ocean blue
C D
Again, she cried, you turned my eye,
G Em
At mentions of, no matter why,
C D
And in the end, an August sun,
G Em
And one by one we blew
C D
Until the devil screamed in the evermore
G Em
In envy of the grace we saw
C D
Oh the heavy water how it enfolds
G Em
The salt, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
C D
Always, always, always the sea
G Em
Brilliantine mortality

C D
Oh the heavy water how it enfolds
G Em
The salt, the spray, the gorgeous undertow
C D
Always, always, always the sea
G Em
Brilliantine mortality


Good Good Boys

D
The aged boys, and the deceased
Em
Are asking now for their reprise
D
They're building things with wood and wire
Em
See them now before they expire
F#m Em
Gotta listen, Oh you've really gotta listen
F#m Em
Gotta listen, You know you've really gotta listen
D
We need some good good boys, some reliable boys,
Em
need some good good boys
D
We need some good good boys, some reliable boys,
Em
need some good good boys

Repeat for next verse and double chorus

They're working now, with brick or bale
But on the diatonic scale
between harmony and the sky
There is a place
So come aboard

You gotta listen, all you've gotta do is listen
You gotta listen, all you've got to do is listen
We need some good good boys, some reliable boys,
need some good good boys
We need some good good boys, some reliable boys,
need some good good boys
We need some good good boys, some reliable boys,
need some good good boys, some reliable boys
We need some good good boys, some reliable boys,
need some good good boys, some reliable boys
We need some good good boys, reliable boys


A Lovely Day Tomorrow

A G
We've been away for so long now
A G
Found out life's coming back somehow
A G
Over Bohemia and Moravia
A G
We came from very far away

And while we kept on saying

In our contaminated paradise
D A G Em
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
D A G Em
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
D A G Em
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
D A G Em G
It'll be a lovely death tomorrow
A G
To find a beginning in an end
A G
And halt the devil's Mercedes Benz
A G
Suspended in sidereal space
A G
With a vacuum sound of horror
Em G
And while we kept on dancing
A G Em G
In our contaminated paradise
D A G Em
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
D A G Em
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
D A G Em
It'll be a lovely day tomorrow
D A G Em G
It'll be a lovely death tomorrow

Break G D A A x4

And while we kept on drinking
A G
And then the air goes quiet


Moley & Me

Intro A A C Bm x2

A
The fins and the curves
C
They don't make them like that anymore
Bm A
So we went out for a walk

Where we have always loved
C
Those dells and guns
Bm A
Where they cannoned off everything

In the factory yards
C
Just two weasals
Bm A
We were born without hearts
C
And they don't treat us so well anymore
Bm A
Even though we know it's all there
C Bm A
No, they don't treat us so well anymore, anymore

We would spend our time
C
Moley and me
Bm A
Killing everybody
C
We would spend our time
Bm A
Killing everybody

Greywater mudflats
C
Filled us with ants in his heels

 

 

Bm A
Close your eyes and disappear

Can you hear a noise?
C Bm A
This is a noise we could easily stop
C
An echo of diesel train
Bm A
Grey overcast days
C
But now we're digging for bones in the mire
Bm
In the mire
A
We would spend our time
C
Moley and me
Bm A
Killing everybody
C
We would spend our time
Bm A
Killing everybody

We would spend our time
C
Moley and me
Bm A
Killing everybody
C
We would spend our time
Bm A
Killing everybody
C
We would spend our time
Bm A
Killing everybody
C
Spend our time
Bm A C
Killing everybody, killing everybody
Bm A C
Killing everybody, killing everybody
Bm A C Bm
Killing everybody everybody


Remember Me

G
Do you worry about your health
B
Do you watch it slowly change
C
And when you listen to yourself,
G
Does it feel like somebody else?
G B
And did you notice when you began to disappear?
C
Was it slowly at first
G
Until there's nobody really there
B
Increment by increment
C
Increment by increment
D
Increment by increment

Riff in chorus G GGGF#E EEEEDB BBBBAG

Repeat chords for next verse and chorus

Did half of you pass away
What about the other half
Yeah what about the other half -
Whatever!
We're all part of the same old bloody regime
With someone taking it out whilst you were putting it in
Increment by increment
Increment by increment
Oh let me be your instrument
Oh remember me
Yeah remember me
Oh remember me
Yeah remember me
Oh remember me
Will you remember me?
Oh remember me
Yeah remember me
Oh remember me
And from the here and now to eternity
Will you remember me?


Salty Water

Shall we leave the bodies in the Peak District

Under rattles and twigs and where Honey said

I hope that we can go there soon
Fmaj7 Em
I hope that we can go back soon

And if you float you are in trouble
And if you don't then so long
All out to sea, to silence ye
Whose holy water's hard to swallow
Yeah I know, Yeah we know

When all my greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
Were all bound up in ropes
When all my greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
All bound up in ropes
And ceremoniously destroyed

When all my greatest hopes
Were all bound up in ropes
Were bound up in ropes
Yeah we'll leave our bodies in the Peak District,
Under rattles and twigs and maybe holly sticks
All bound up in ropes
And ceremoniously destroyed
One by one by you
