Spacy, then aggressive: Lyrics spoken / yelled

Verse 1: slow
Night Fell.... I was on fire
I watched streets.... Become molten
She was there.... In lamplight
There in shadows.... Code Black

Verse 2: fast
Screaming.... Hands behind my back
Nowhere to go.... Feet up to my knees
Restrained.... Nowhere but up
Retrained.... I break into shadows
All over.... Code Black

[REPEAT VERSE 1 slow]
[REPEAT ADLIB or STOP ABRUPTLY]


||A |F#m |C |G#aug |B |G || repeat forever Notes: Bar 4: G# major will do, especially in the fast part. G#aug = G# C E. Bar 5: substitute Bm in slow part.
