1a.

Bb   Bdim   Cm       C#+
Down, down, down you go

Bb Bdim   Cm       C#+
No way to stop

Bb(D)  Bb7   Eb      Ebm(C)
As you fall, hear me call

Bb(F)  Cm(E) Eb  F
No,    no,   no


Bb     Bdim    Cm      C#+
Listen to this warning and

Bb Bdim  Cm       C#+
Consider these

Bb(D)  Bb7   Eb   Ebm(C)
Simple words of advice:

Bb(F) Cm(E) Eb  F
Stop, stop, stop


1b.

Bb          Eb            Cm          F
Fogging the view, cupping face to the window

   Bb           Eb         Cm         F
In darkness you make out a spiraling shape

Bb          Eb      Cm         F
Putting all reason aside you exchange

         Bb        Eb              Cm        F
What you got for a thing that's hypnotic and strange


Chorus:

Bb             Eb         Cm       F
The spiraling shape will make you go insane

Bb        Eb       Cm       F
(Everyone wants to see that groovy thing)

    Bb       Eb       Cm       F
But everyone wants to see that groovy thing

Bb        Eb       Cm       F
(Everyone wants to see that thing)


Bridge:

    Eb     Bb(D)           F      Bb
And nobody knows what it's really like

    Eb       Bb(D)     C  F
But everyone says it's great

         Gm       F(A)     Bb     C        F    F7
And they heard it from the spiral in their eyes


2a.

This could lead to excellence
Or serious injury
Only one way to know
Go, go, go

Go ahead, wreck your life
That might be good
Who can say what's wrong or right?
Nobody can


2b.

Put out your hands and you fall through the window
And clawing at nothing you drop through the void
Your terrified screams are inaudible drowned
In the spiral ahead and consumed in the shape


Chorus:

The spiraling shape will make you go insane
(Everyone wants to see that groovy thing)
But everyone wants to see that groovy thing
(Everyone wants to see that thing)


3.

And now that you've tried it, you're back to report
That the spiraling shape was a fraud and a fake
You didn't enjoy it, you never believed it
There won't be a refund, you'll never go back


Chorus

Bridge
