1.     It's everywhere I look, from Las Vegas to right here,

     G                Am        G                 Am

    under your dresser, right by your ear.

             G                Am            G           Am

    It's creeping in sweetly, it's definitely here,

                  G                  Am               G                 Am

    there's nothing more deadly than slow growing fear.

 

      G                       Am                            G              Am

2. Life was full and fruitful and you could take a real bite,

          G                 Am                    G                 - Am

    the juice poring well over your skins delight.

                   G             Am                             G         Am

    But the shadow, it grows, and takes the depth away,

                   G                 Am                  G

    leaving broken down pieces to this priceless ballet.

 

G                              D                                  Am

    The shallower it grows, the shallower it grows,

 

the fainter we go into the fade out line.

G                               D                                Am

    The shallower it grows, the shallower it grows,

 

the fainter we go into the deeper down.

 

   Am             G                   Am                                G                Am

3.     Did we build all those bridges to watch them thin down to dust,

           G                    Am                G                    - Am

    or blow them voluntarily, out of constant trust.

              G                   - Am                G          Am

    The clock is ticking            its last couple of tocks,

                      G              Am             G

    and there won't be a party with weathering frocks.

 

G                              D                                  Am

    The shallower it grows, the shallower it grows,

 

the fainter we go into the fade out line.

G                               D                                Am

    The shallower it grows, the shallower it grows,

 

the fainter we go into the deeper down.

 

  Am

+    Heading deeper down,

               G                    Am                                   - G

    we're sliding without noticing our own decline.

Am

    Heading deeper down,

               G                  - Am             - - - - - - - - - - - - -

    we're hanging onto           sweet nothings left behind.

4.      We are all plunging straight towards our own decline

Am             G               Am                          G

    without noticing we slide down, deeper down.

Am                      G                 Am                  G

    The shadow grows without ever slowing down,

Am                            G        Am                     G

    we are heading straight into the fade out line.

                 Am        - G

    Deeper down.             +  Am - G
