Dormition And Dominion chords – Current-93

 Artist : Current 93
Title : Dormition And Dominion

 Am7 Am7 
In the mind of god
                Dm7 F   
The dead sleeping lie
 Am7 Dm7 F 
And the little cogs though unmoving
 Am7 Dm7 F Am7 
Hover over the turning wheel
            Dm7 F 
All life's a farce
 
 Am7 C F Dm7     
The broken bird is draped over the paths and paths
      Am7 C F Dm7  
And paths and paths
      Am7 C F Dm7  
And those who say this world is not
      Am7 C F Dm7  
The bloody gleaming paradise of blood and jewel
 Am7 
Lie

 Am7 Dm7 F Am7 
Opal and pearl bloodsocket castings
        Dm7 F Am7 
Ruby jasmine jasper and onyx
                      Dm7 F 
Chalcedonthrone and ambergriscrown
 Am7 
Golden green leafwork
 Dm7 F Am7 C 
Scrolled with the farstars
 F Dm7 Am7 
Pitted ~~~with the moonworlds
 C F Dm7  
Mother alldewey
   Am7 C F Dm7 Am7 
Arrayed with the twinkling lights
       C F Dm7 Am7 
The wovengold spungilded ~~~~blinking godeyes
       C F Dm7  
The spearshafts of heaven
      Am7 C F Dm7   
The souldwelling rockhomes
 Am7 
Are...

Spoken:
Dormition and Dominion
Dormition and Dominion
The Mother is dead
The Mother awakens
Dormition
She sleeps
Dominion
He rules
She sleeps and rules
In her starry bodied glory
The Mother sleeps
The Mother loves
Dormition and Dominion
I wait
...Are the holders of the world and its dreams
I say there is no death
No death

 Dm7 Am7 C  
We have lived before and shall live again
 F Dm7   
And again
          Am7 C F 
We have slept before and shall sleep again
                 Dm7 Am7 
We have danced through the shallow pools
       C F Dm7   
And shall rejoice 
       Am7 
Once again
      C F 
To those who say there is no hope
  Dm7 Am7 
I say...  liars
 C F 
Liars
 Dm7 Am7 
Liars you are

                  Dm7       
Over the starry dancing stars
 F Am7 
There is a land
             C F 
Under the sweatribbed brow
 Dm7 Am7 
There is a land
                  C F Dm7 Am7 
And this is the globed world of ~~~~the Pantocrator
 C F Dm7   
[Died in lines and died in singular]
 Am7 C 
Finally I have understood
 F Dm7 
I have understood
 Am7 C 
I have understood
         F Dm7 Am7 C 
Though when I slip sleeping and silently
       F Dm7 
From this ribbed room of sighs
  Am7 C F Dm7 Am7 
You shall not find the history of His personal visit
 C F 
Sewn into my linings perhaps
 Dm7 Am7 
Nevertheless I have understood
 C

 Artist: Current 93
Title: This Carnival Is Dead And Gone

 Am Am 
Dear sir dear lady

       G Em 
This carnival is dead and gone

 Am G Bm Am 
And never anyway alas this party never yet began

The chairs and tables dust of dust

 G Em Am  
Yes verydust of veryrust of verymust and farewelltrust

    G Bm Am  
I thought I saw you in the crowd dear heart

                               G Em 
You turned away from me and then you dissolved into light

      Am Bm 
The broken lights and faded buntings

 G Fmaj7 
Call to us all the inmost light
  
                                    G 
And don't glare wide your eyes in wonder

       Em Fmaj7 
They will flick back inside your mind

                        G 
And on the bonescreen of your skull

       Bm Am 
They watch no musical salutes

                G Em Am 
So thoroughly modern now we are

But the last reel of all time

 G Am 
The inmost night

Its frames are glared and slow and out of focus

 G Em Am 
Valentino Vallee Moss all dead!

The inmost night

           G Bm Am 
And the little bells go tinkle

And your eyes begin to twinkle
 
          G Em   
And the joints and sinews crack

 Am G 
It's the expansion of your mind death
Death
Death
Death

 Fmaj7 Am 
The inmost night

      G Em Am 
The cat's face glares from shiny card

The deadcat from my past

       G Bm Am 
You tumble you froth and fun forever

    Fmaj7 Am 
An orchestra from another time

 G Em 
Another world all dead

       Am G Bm Am 
The churchbells silent the rainstained glass of God is smashed

And you take your choice you sup with the devil

      G Em 
You choke on your pride for ever and ever

     Fmaj7 G Bm Am  
My memory of my inmost light it tumbles froth and fun forever

                                    G 
Vulvaic memories imagined of my would-be-life

       Em 
Well that won't be

      Am 
And that won't be

And that won't be

 G Bm    
And that won't be

 Fmaj7 
And for my troubles and my pain
 
 G Em 
And for the losses and the wains

    Am 
I get a picture in my mind

      G Bm Am 
The slyly smily smiling kiss

               G 
Of your sweet heart and face

 Em Am 
And your legs in some final benediction

                             G 
Your inmost warmheart says ta-ra

           Bm Am 
And I wished to die inside of you

                       G Em 
And push up into your heart so violently that

 Am G 
Face to face with matrix creatrix am

                Bm Am  
The inmost light

The inmost night


A last tip:
Intead of playing Bm Am, you can also play Bm Am G Am instead (all with short strums of course).
