Dm     Gm              Am
In the tower above the earth, 
Dm         Gm                Am
There is a view that reaches far 
Dm       Gm         Am
Where we see the universe, 
Dm        Gm              Am
I see the fire, I see the end. 

Dm    Gm              Am
Seven miles above the earth, 
Dm         Gm        Am
There is Emmanuel of mothers. 
Dm       Gm              Am       C
With his sword, with his robe, 
Dm       Gm                Am           C
He comes dividing man from brothers. 

Dm     Gm              Am                 C         Dm
In the tower above the earth, we built it for Emmanuel. 
       Gm            Am               C               Dm
In the powers of the earth, we wait until it rips and rips. 
Dm     Gm              Am                 C         Dm
In the tower above the earth, we built it for Emmanuel. 
      Gm            Am                C                Gm
Oh my mother, she betrayed us, but my father loved and bathed us. 

F       C         Bb
Still I go to the deepest grave, 
F             C      Bb
Where I go to sleep alone
