Lyrics to "Sinking Fast":-

Sinking Fast
1.        (E) Uncertain destinations calling drowning like a stone
Freakshow world around us – hear those sirens moan.


We’re sinking (A7) fast, we’re sinking fast,
This(B7) ship is headed for the rocks (A7) in that stormy blast,
And (B7) will we perish on the sea, tied (A7) up to that mast
So let’s (F#) sing our final shanty tune be(A)fore we breathe our last.
We’re (E)sinking fast, we’re sinking fast

2.        Those predatory parasites upon this world they tread,
Of all the fruits they drain it, and leave us pale and bled.
We’re sinking fast....

3.        You lead us to the ballot box as to the altar shrine
And shamelessly you milk the trough and steal the bread and wine.
We’re sinking fast.....

4.        From your tunnel vision mother nature reels from shock
And blindly stumble onwards and hear that ticking clock.
We’re sinking fast.....

5.        Headed for that melting pot that point of no return
Grasping for that parachute before we crash and burn.
We’re sinking fast.....

6.        Great global amoeba hoovers up everything
Hanging by our finger tips to one last hope we cling
We’re sinking fast.....

7.         The banker’s in his tower of glass, the dog has chewed the bone,
And grandma’s on the toilet playing with her phone.
We’re sinking fast.....

8.        No future for our children, they can only drown
Sucked into the whirlpool, that slowly drags them down.
We’re sinking fast.....

(short hold on E(7) chord

9.        The rich behind their iron gates, the beggars multiply,
While we’re all dreaming of Range Rovers in the sky.
We’re sinking fast.....

10.        So let’s raise our voices one and all before the die is cast,
Tell it on the mountain this song will be our last...
We’re sinking fast.....

Play through sequence as instrumental then fade on E(7) chord.
