Black Sabbath - The Sign of the Southern Cross: chords

D#m
If there isn't light when no one sees
Then how can I know what you might believe?
A story told that can't be real
Somehow must reflect the truth we feel, yeah

G#m         E
Fade away, fade away
Vanish into smoke
Fade away, fade away
Break the crystal ball

D#m
It's the sign
Feels like the time

On a small world, west of wonder
Somewhere, nowhere all
There's a rainbow that will shimmer
When the summer falls

If an echo doesn't answer
When it hears a certain song
Then the Beast is free to wander
But never seen around

Chorus:
             G#m                   D#m
And it's the sign of the southern cross
          G#m                   D#m
It's the sign of the southern cross, alright
D#m
Sail away to the sign

From the book, the word is spoken
Whispers from forgotten psalms
Gather all around the young ones
They will make us strong

Reach above your dreams of pleasure
Give a knife to those who died
Look beyond your own horizons
Sail the ship of sighs

Chorus:
And it's the sign of the southern cross
It's the sign of the southern cross

G#m   F#    E
Fade away, fade away
Break the crystal ball
Fade away, fade away
I can't accept it anymore

D#m
On a real world, west of wonder
                      C# D#m
Somewhere, nowhere all
There's a rainbow, see it shimmer
When the summer falls
From the book, the word is spoken
Whispers from forgotten psalms
Gather all around the young ones
They will make us strong

Chorus:
It's the sign of the southern cross
It's the sign of the southern cross

Don't live for pleasure
Make life your treasure
Fade away

Eight miles high, about to fall
And no one there to catch you
Look for the sign, the time
The sign of the southern cross
Play on!
