Main Riff: ,

It doesn't matter if we all die

Ambition in the back of a black car

In a high building there is so much to do

Going home time

A story on the radio

Something small falls out of your mouth

And we laugh

A prayer for something better

A prayer for something better

Please love me

Meet my mother

But the fear takes hold

Creeping up the stairs in the dark

Waiting for the death blow

Bridge

Waiting for the death blow

Waiting for the death blow

Repeat Main Riff: Cm, B

Stroking your hair as the patriots are shot

Fighting for freedom on the television

Sharing the world with slaughtered pigs

Have we got everything?

She struggles to get away

The pain and the creeping feeling

A little black haired girl

Waiting for Saturday

The death of her father pushing her

Pushing her white face into the mirror

Aching inside me

And turn me around

Just like the old days

Just like the old days

Bridge

Just like the old days

Just like the old days

Caressing an old man

And painting a lifeless face

Just a piece of new meat in a clean room

The soldiers close in under a yellow moon

All shadows and deliverance

Under a black flag

A hundred years of blood

Crimson

The ribbon tightens round my throat

I open my mouth

And my head bursts open

A sound like a tiger thrashing in the water

Thrashing in the water

Over and over

We die one after the other

Over and over

We die one after the other

Bridge

One after the other

One after the other

One after the other

One after the other

Crd:

It feels like a hundred years

A hundred years

A hundred years

A hundred years

A hundred years

One hundred years

“A SHORT TERM EFFECT”

Words by: R.Smith Music by: The Cure published by: Fiction Records, 1982

Tabbed by: graph_sas

Main Riff: , , ,

Movement

No movement

Just a falling bird

Cold as it hits the bleeding ground

He lived and died

Catch sight

Cover me with earth

Draped in black

Static

White sound

Here is the brige:

A day without substance

A change of thought

An atmosphere that rots with time

Colours that flicker in water

A short term effect

Repeat the main riff over the verse:

Scream

As she tries to push him over

Helpless and sick

With teeth of madness

Jump jump dance and sing

Sideways across the desert

A charcoal face

Bites my hand

Time is sweet

Derange and disengage everything

A day without substance

A change of thought

An atmosphere that rots with time

Colours that flicker in water

A short term effect

Repeat Main Riff: , , ,

A short term effect

A short term effect

A short term effect

An echo

And a stranger's hand

A short term effect

An echo

And a stranger's hand

A short term effect

“THE HANGING GARDEN”

Words by: R.Smith Music by: The Cure published by: Fiction Records, 1982

Tabbed by: graph_sas

Creatures kissing in the rain

Shapeless in the dark again

In the hanging garden please don't speak

In the hanging garden no one sleeps

Riff

Catching haloes on the moon

Gives my hands the shapes of angels

In the heat of the night

The animals scream

In the heat of the night

Walking into a dream...

Fall fall fall fall

Into the walls

Jump jump out of time

Fall fall fall fall

Out of the sky

Cover my face as the animals die

In the hanging garden

In the hanging garden

Creatures kissing in the rain

Shapeless in the dark again

In a hanging garden

Change the past

In a hanging garden

Wearing furs and masks...

Fall fall fall fall

Into the walls

Jump jump out of time

Fall fall fall fall

Out of the sky

Cover my face as the animals die

In the hanging garden

In the hanging garden

“SIAMESE TWINS”

Words by: R.Smith Music by: The Cure published by: Fiction Records, 1982

Tabbed by: graph_sas

}*4

I chose an eternity of this

Like falling angels the world disappeared

Laughing into the fire, is it always like this ?

Flesh and blood and the first kiss

The first colors the first kiss.

}*2

(repeat throughout the verse)

We writhed under a red light

Voodoo smile, siamese twins

Girl at the window looks at me for an hour

Then everything falls apart

Broken inside me, it falls apart.

The walls and the ceiling move in time

Push a blade into my hands, slowly up the stairs

And into the room

Is it always like this ?

Dancing in my pocket

Worms eat my skin

She glows and grows with arms outstretched

Her legs around me, in the morning I cried.

}*4

(repeat )

Leave me to die, you won't remember my voice

I walked away and grew old

You never talk, we never smile

I scream you're nothing

And I don't need you anymore

You're nothing

It fades and spins

Fades and spins.

Sing out loud we all die

Laughing into the fire

Is it always like this ?

Is it always like this ?

No Chord

Is it always like this ?

“THE FIGUREHEAD”

Words by: R.Smith Music by: The Cure published by: Fiction Records, 1982

Tabbed by: unregistered

Sharp and open, leave me alone and sleeping less every night

As the days become heavier and weighted

Waiting in the cold light

A noise, a scream tears my clothes as the figurines tighten

With spiders inside them

And dust on the lips of a vision of hell

I laughed in the mirror for the first time in a year.

Bridge

Figure 1) 2x

*1:06*

Verse 4

*4:51*

Too many secrets, too many lies writing with hatred

Too many secrets, please make it good tonight

But the same image haunts me in sequence, in despair of time

I will never be clean again

Touched her eyes, pressed my stained face

I will never be clean again (Figure 1)

Touch her eyes, press my stained face

I will never be clean again

I will never be clean again

I will never be clean again

I will never be clean again.

“A STRANGE DAY”

Words by: R.Smith Music by: The Cure published by: Fiction Records, 1982

Tabbed by: Mario Dorion SSE Sun Montreal

Give me your eyes that I can see

The blind man kissing my hands

The sun is humming

My head turns to dust as he plays on his knees

As he plays on his knees

And the sand and the sea glows I close my eyes

Move slowly through drowning waves

Going away on a strange day

And I laugh as I drift in the wind

Blind

Dancing on a beach of stone

Cherish the faces as they wait for the end

Sudden hush across the water

And we're here again

And the sand

And the sea grows

I close my eyes

Move slowly through drowning waves

Going away

On a strange day

And the sand and the sea glows I close my eyes

Move slowly through drowning waves

Going away on a strange day

My head falls back and the walls crashed in

And the sky and the impossible explodes

And for one moment I remember a song

An expression of sounds

And the everything is gone forever

SYNTH PROGRESSION CHORDS: , , , , ,

GUITAR PROGRESSION CHORDS: Bm, G

Scarred

Your back was turned

Curled like an embryo

Take another face

You will be kissed again

I was cold as I mouthed the words

And crawled across the mirror

I wait

Await the next breath

Your name

Like ice into my heart

Main Riff: , (x2)

A shallow grave

A monument to the ruined age

Ice in my eyes

And eyes like ice don't move

Screaming at the moon

Another past time

Your name

Like ice into my heart

Main Riff: , (x2)

Repeat the progression chord through the verse:

Everything as cold as life

Can no one save you?

Everything

As cold as silence

And you never say a word

Your name

Like ice into my heart (x2)

“PORNOGRAPHY”

Words by: R.Smith Music by: The Cure published by: Fiction Records, 1982

Tabbed by: graph_sas

The basics chords are:

A hand in my mouth

A life spills into the flowers

We all look so perfect

As we fall down

In a n electric glare

The old man cracks with age

She found his last picture

In the ashes of the fire

An image of the queen

Echoes round the sweating bed

Sour yellow sounds inside my head

In books

And films

And in life

And in heaven

The sound of slaughter

As your body turns

But it’s too late

The Brigde chords are:

One more day like today and I’ll kill you

A desire for flesh

And real blood

And I’ll watch you drown in the shower

Pushing my life through your open eyes

I must fight this sickness

Find a cure...
