March Of The Giants

Trans by:  Mr. C5 - Dave Allen

Verse One
†††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† A
You rise up over the skyline
D††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm††††††††††††††††††††
Pushing everything out of your way
G††††††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††
All around the dogs start howling
D††††††††††† Bm††††††††††††††
And the ground starts to sway
G†††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††††††
My house is made out of matchsticks
D†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm
Your map has got a big x on
G††††††††††††††††††††††† A
Youíre so busy, hiking your empire up
D†††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm
Youíd let a baby drop from your arms
G††††††††††††††††††††††††† A††††††
No one can put a spring in your step
††††† D††††††††††††† Bm
Or thaw your heart
††††††††††† G†††††††††††††††† A
Itís not art, itís not science
†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††† G- A
Itís a march of the giants†
Verse Two (As Verse One)
I wake up as the great leap forward
Crashes down on my newspaper bed
Right now I need another place to shop
Like a hole in the back of my head
Iíll get another high-rise block
Whether I want it or not
Itís not art, itís not science
Itís the March of the Giants
Bm††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D
Iím staying small while you grow strong
†††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††A
On a human scale of one to ten Iím registering none
Verse Three ( As Verse One)
And I maybe the first test tube adult
But I donít know , I canít hear myself think
Over the click of the Geiger counter
And the roar of the motorway link
Theres a thousand lonely dreams
That lie beneath your bulldozer dead
When you demonstrate your talents
Clouds blacken and rivers run red
What do you do for an extra slice of your daily bread
Itís not art, Itís not science
Itís the March of the giants
G††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††††††† Bm
No-one can lighten your step or thaw your heart
††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† A
Its not art, its not science
†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††† G-A
Itís a march of the giants
