The Voices of Bilthoven

Pompeii – Bastille


ALLEN: EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO (2X)

I WAS LEFT TO MY OWN DEVI-I-I-ICES
MANY DAYS FELL AWAY WITH NOTHING TO SHOW

AND THE WALLS KEPT TUMBLING DOWN
IN THE CITY THAT WE LOVE
GREAT CLOUDS ROLL OVER THE HILLS
BRINGING DARKNESS FROM ABOVE

REFREIN:
BUT IF YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES
(CA+MS2+S2: EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO)
DOES IT ALMOST FEEL LIKE
NOTHING CHANGED AT ALL?
AND IF YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES
(CA+MS2+S2: EEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO)
DOES IT ALMOST FEEL LIKE
YOU’VE BEEN HERE BEFORE?
HOW AM I GONNA BE AN OPTIMIST ABOUT THIS? (CA+MS2+S2: AAHAAHAA)
HOW AM I GONNA BE AN OPTIMIST ABOUT THIS? (CA+MS2+S2: AAHAAHAAHAA)

WE WERE (CA+MS2+S1: WE WERE CAUGHT UP) CAUGHT UP AND LOST IN ALL (CA+MS2+S1: IN ALL) OF OUR VICES (CA+MS2+S1: OF OUR VICES)
IN YOUR POSE AS THE DUST SETTLED AROUND US

AND THE WALLS KEPT TUMBLING DOWN
IN THE CITY THAT WE LOVE
GREAT CLOUDS ROLL OVER THE HILLS
BRINGING DARKNESS FROM ABOVE

REFREIN:
BUT IF YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES (CA+MS2+S2: EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO)
DOES IT ALMOST FEEL LIKE
NOTHING CHANGED AT ALL?
AND IF YOU CLOSE YOUR EYES (CA+MS2+S2: EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO)
DOES IT ALMOST FEEL LIKE
YOU’VE BEEN HERE BEFORE?
HOW AM I GONNA BE AN OPTIMIST ABOUT THIS? (CA+MS2+S2: AAHAAHAA)
HOW AM I GONNA BE AN OPTIMIST ABOUT THIS? (CA+MS2+S2: AAHAAHAAHAA)

ALLEN: EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO EEEEOOEEOO

OH WHERE DO WE BEGIN?
THE RUBBLE OR OUR SINS?
OH WHERE DO WE BEGIN?
THE RUBBLE OR OUR SINS?

AND THE WALLS KEPT TUMBLING DOWN (A+MS1+S2: OH WHERE DO WE BEGIN?)
IN THE CITY THAT WE LOVE (A+MS1+S2: THE RUBBLE OR OUR SINS?)
GREAT CLOUDS ROLL OVER THE HILLS (A+MS1+S2: OH WHERE DO WE BEGIN?)
