QUICKSAND from Hunky Dory 

INTRO: G Am7 G Am7 G Am7 G Am7

I'm closer to the golden dawn
G Gsus4 G
Immersed in Crowley's uniform of imagery
I'm living in a silent film
Portraying Himmler's sacred realm of dream reality
I'm frightened by the total goal
Drawing to the ragged hole
G Em C
And I ain't got the power any more
G Am7 Am7add9 Am7add9* A
no I ain't got the power any more

I'm the twisted name on Garbo's eyes
A Asus4 A
Living proof of Churchills lies I'm destiny
I'm torn between the light and dark
A Asus4 A
Where others see their target divine symmetry
Should I kiss the vipers fang
Or herald loud the death of man?
A F#m7 Em7 D
I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thoughts
A Asus4 A
And I ain't got the power any more

A E7 F#m7
Don't believe in yourself
D#dim E
Don't deceive with belief
Edim Bm7
Knowledge comes with deaths release
Fdim A
Ah ah ah ah
F#m7 E6 E
Ah ah ah ah ah

I'm not a prophet or a stoneage man
Just a mortal with potential of a superman I'm living on
I'm tethered to the logic of homo sapien
Can't take my eyes from the great salvation of bullshit faith
If I don't explain what you ought to know
You can tell me all about it in the next bardot
A F#m7 Em7 D
I'm sinking in the quicksand of my thoughts
A Asus4 A Asus4 A
And I ain't got the power any more

CHORUS 2 and 3

CHORUS 4 - No vocals

INTRO: The notes that double the chords are just 'G' and 'A' They're played on
some sort of vibe.

Ain't got the power...bit: You know, the bit where the guitar strums heavy and
then plays harmonics at the fifth fret. In case you don't know, harmonics are
achieved by holding your finger gently on the string directly above the fret,
and sort of pulling it away as you play the note! (easier said than done
