About to Fall
Words and Music
by GlennSiegel


Intro
4/4
A Aaug5
Throughout the ages a pervading theme
Bdim A F#m B
Manifesting in humanity The acting out of reckless dreams
D Bdim A Bm7A
Until the power falls

A Aaug5
The way that history’s written by so few
Bdim A
With ever bending and convenient rules
F#m B D Bdim ABm7A
That don’t allow the possibility that they could be about to fall
D Bdim A Bm7A

E D A E D A
Lovely Marie in all her finery blinded from danger by her jewelry
F#m B D Bdim A Bm7A
Shield by hedges and painted screens yet she was about to fall
D Bdim A Bm7A
And her head was about to roll
A Aug5 A Aug5
A Aaug5
Despite amassing the world’s greatest army
Bdim A
And winning victory over victory
F#m B
And ruling all the land from sea to sea
D Bdim A Bm7A D Bdim A Bm7A
He was about to fall And then Elba called



E D A
And shivering sailors in their scurvy dreams

E D A
Carry out the wishes of their frenzied kings
F#m B D Bdim A
Even when it can be plainly seen That they’re about to fall
D Bdim A
And that with them goes all

Solo
A Aaug5 D Bdim A
F#m B D Bdim A Bm7A
F D7 Adim D F#dim ADADADA

E D A
Over and over here we go again
E D A
Needle in the balance and it never ends
F#m B D Bdim A Bm7A
Power abused with gluttony Creates a mighty fall
D Bdim A Bm7A
Could be time to hear the call

A Aug5 A Aug5
A Aaug5
The illusion of our ability to control
Bdim A
Mother nature when she goes against our goals
F#m B
Begets the question and with urgency
D Bdim A Bm7A D Bdim A Bm7A
Are we about to fall Have we finally hit the wall
D Bdim A Bm7A D Bdim F D7 A
Business as usual And the winner loses all
