Reinhard ADD:Tinsel town (Karine Polwart)- need chords (7) RE: Karine polwart - Tinsel Show 24 Mar 21


TINSEL SHOW
Karine Polwart, on Traces (2012)

In the East the fires are burning
Spires of stone and steel
Smoke stack engine turning
Wheel upon wheel

From a window, such a wonder
Galaxies have come to land
She sees stars and spells and spangles
Sparklers in her hand

And the eyes of ages watch our tinsel show
While hireling wages steal our dreams from our souls

In the East the fires are burning
Spires of steel and stone
Smoke stack engine turning
Wheel upon wheel

From her window, such a wonder
Flying saucers on the shore
She sees disco lights and diamonds
Bold Orion’s sword

And the eyes of ages watch our tinsel show
While hireling wages steal our dreams from our souls

Minarets of industry
and spinnerets of alchemy
Belfry towers for bells to ring in
Colonnades of chemistry
and cavalcades of conjury
Choir stalls for hearts to sing in

In the East the fires are burning

(lyrics from Karine's Bandcamp page)
