Gary Gilmores Eyes Chords
Die toten hosens version of the strange and true, (sort of), story of Gary Gilmore, an 
American murderer
who was executed by firing squad in 1977 leaving his eyes, (corneas to be exact), to be 
used in transplants.
A cool story and a great song, pretty simlpe, you could play it all in 'chugga chugga' 
power chords but I
like it like this. Notice that this song has two slightly different choruses.
  As usual please rate, comment, critisize, improve etc.

I'm lying in a hospital,  I'm pinned against the bed
  C                            Bm
A stethoscope upon my heart, a hand against my head
        Em                            D
They're peeling off the bandages, I'm wincing in the light
    C                                  Bm
The nurse is looking anxious and she's quivering in fright

The doctors are avoiding me, my vision is confused
  C                            Bm
I listen to my earphones and I catch the evening news
  Em                            D
A murderer's been killed and he donates his sight to science
    C                             Bm
I'm locked into a private ward, I realise that I must be...

Verse 3
  Em                                D
I smash the light in anger, push my bed against the door
  C                                 Bm
I close my lids across the eyes and wish to see no more
    Em                            D
The eye receives the messages and sends them to the brain
   C                             Bm
No guarantee the stimuli must be perceived the same...
