Cracking Up

Trans by:  Mr. C5 - Dave Allen

A-D-E X2 A                   C#M

Keep the lid on the pot

F#M                                    E
And the pressure builds up

             A                          C#M
You can stamp the fire out

             F#M              E
But the ashes stay hot

A    D E   A       D  E
Stay hot, stay hot
              A                      C#M
You can pave over fields

             F#M                       E
But the pavements subside

         A                          C#M
See a root smash a brick

            F#M               E
Given time, given time

D                    
All your concrete town

E
All the stony ground
A
Is cracking up

D                   E
You know it must

A
It's cracking up

D                  E
It's only dust

A-D-E  X2
                A                    C#M
From far under your feet

       F#M                 E
The future arrives

A                              C#M
The jungle just waits

            F#M                  E
Give it time, give it time

D
Now the grass grows tall

E
The building's bound to fall
A
Is cracking up

D                   E
You know it must

A
It's cracking up

D             E
It's only dust

A-B-E  X2
                       A
Your home is cracking up

D                E
It's only a skin

A
That holds the world out

           D                  E
While holding you in

               A                   C#M

Keep the lid on the pot

 F#M                      E
Pressure builds up

              A                         C#M
You can stamp the fire out

DF#M            E
Ashes stay hot

D
Seeds are growing now

E
Something's breaking out

             A

You're cracking up

D                      E
You know you must

            A
You're cracking up

D                 E
You're only dust
