The Final Cut
Capo 3

[Verse 1]
D                                            A
Through the fish eyed lens of tear stained eyes
      G                                         D
I can barely define the shape of this moment in time
    D                                     A
And far from flying high in clear blue skies
    G                                                 D
I'm spiraling down, to the hole in the ground where I hide

G                    D
If you negotiate the minefield in the drive,
G                                     D
and beat the dogs, and cheat the cold electronic eyes,
G          A                Bm
and if you make it past the shotguns in the hall,
Dial the combination... open the priesthole
And if I'm in, I'll tell (BOOM!)

[Verse 2]
F#m                                 D
There's a kid who had a big hallucination
F#m                         A
Making love to girls in magazines
   G                                    Bm
He wonders if you're sleeping with your new found faith...
Could anybody love him?
                A     D
Or is it just a crazy dream?

A     G      D

[Verse 3]
    D                    A
And if I show you my dark side
                    G  D
Will you still hold me tonight?
    D            A
And if I open my heart to you,
Show you my weak side...
What would you do?

G                                    D
Would you sell your story to Rolling Stone?
G                                D
Would you take the children away, and leave me alone?
    G             A             Bm
And smile in reassurance as you whisper down the phone,
Would you send me packing?
   A                    D
...Or would you take me home?

F#m D F#m A G Bm Em7

[Verse 4]
F#m                            D
Thought I oughta bare my naked feelings,
F#m                               A
Thought I oughta tear the curtain down
I held the blade in trembling hands,
Prepared to make it but...
Just then the phone rang.
I never had the nerve to make The Final Cut

About the artist behind The Final Cut:

Pink Floyd are an English rock band that initially earned recognition for their psychedelic or space rock music, and, as they evolved, for their progressive rock music. They are known for philosophical lyrics, sonic experimentation, innovative cover art, and elaborate live shows. One of rock music's most successful acts, the group have sold over 200 million albums worldwide[1][2] including 74.5 million albums in the United States alone.[3]

Pink Floyd had moderate mainstream success and were one of the most popular bands in the London underground music scene in the late 1960s as a psychedelic band led by Syd Barrett; however, Barrett's erratic behaviour eventually forced his colleagues to replace him with guitarist and singer David Gilmour. After Barrett's departure, singer and bass player Roger Waters gradually became the dominant and driving force in the group in the late-1970s, until his eventual departure from the group in 1985. The band recorded several albums, achieving worldwide success with The Dark Side of the Moon (1973), Wish You Were Here (1975), Animals (1977), and The Wall (1979). In 1985, Waters declared Pink Floyd "a spent force", but the remaining members, led by Gilmour, continued recording and touring under the name Pink Floyd. Although they were unsuccessfully sued by Waters for rights to the name, they again enjoyed worldwide success with A Momentary Lapse of Reason (1987) and The Division Bell (1994). Eventually they reached a settlement out of court with Waters allowing them use of the name. Waters performed with the band for the first time in 24 years on 2 July 2005 at the London Live 8 concert.
