Globe Of Frogs

Tropical Flesh Mandala
Main Riff:
G:-0-----------0------------
D:---3-0---0-3--------------
A:-------2------------------
E:---------------3----------

(It's played a bit too fast for me to be sure, but I know that the song is in
a key of G and that this riff is close.  If you don't trust this version, 
send in your own, or just play a G.)

Lying out there on the beach  was a pleasant growth
in the reach of me and you  in the reach of both
tropical flesh mandala, tropical flesh mandala

G(3)          C(3)         F    Bb
floating in a moist exotic pool
G(3)            C(3)            F      F#
feeling so good-natured I could drool

So I took a photograph  so there'd be no doubt
when I got the pictures back  none of them came out
tropical flesh mandala, tropical flesh mandala

underneath your ribcage and your skin
honey there's a new way to get in

it was covered in pink scales  lots of tiny feathers
valves that opened up and  valves that closed very tight together
tropical flesh mandala, tropical flesh mandala

on the night the creature came ashore
someone told Joanna what they're for

Cross-legged on the bed         she gazed across the town
her shadow climbed the wall     until the sun went down
she bought a china pug          it lay there on the bed
and in the paper bag            she could just see its head

	   B   E              B   A          B   E
She was vibrating  She was vibrating She was vibrating


and in an adoring pose          he shriveled up and died
until his bones were stems      upon the grass they dried
and made an alphabet            of white upon the green
and it was beautiful            and some would say obscene
she was vibrating    she was vibrating   she was vibrating

and in the demon's hat          discolored flowers grew
and they had fleshy stems       and fleshy petals too
to slither is divine            to multifoliate
she just lost her watch         she couldn't concentrate
she was vibrating  she was vibrating  she was vibrating
she was vibrating  she was vibrating  she was vibrating

Sleeping With Your Devil Mask
*(The end of verse bass/guitar riff)

E                             *   E                           *    
I see the birdies in the trees    I see the fishes in the seas
and perching on the garden wall   I see the man that made it all
I see the sand, I see the stones  I see right through into your bones
E
your skeleton can dance all night  and caper beneath the swaying light
A(5)
sleeping with your devil mask is all I want to do
	   B(7)                      G(3) E   
and when I stop it means I'm through with you
E     G(3)  E     G(3)  A(5)  E
yeah, yeah, yeah  yeah, yeah, yeah

so welcome Mr. Dennis Forbes   who's brought along his perspect orbs
and they are full of leather peas  that rattle like a slow disease
I've got to have a nasty thought because of all the stuff I bought
from sultry Mr. Garrick Hobbs  who does a load of useless jobs
and in the chapel after lunch they used to cluster in a bunch
sleeping with your devil mask is all I wanna do
and when I stop it means I'm through with you
yeah, yeah, yeah  yeah, yeah, yeah

it's all compulsion, there's no choice my mother's second name is Joyce
and once when she was very young  she saw a cellist being hung
thirteen men with long black heads all came and stood around her bed
and when the morning light came in she saw their heads had all caved in
their rotting brains fell to the floor and crawled away towards the door
sleeping with your Devil mask is all I wanna do
and when I stop it means I'm through with you
yeah, yeah, yeah  yeah, yeah, yeah

the organism rapes itself  as it gives birth upon the shelf
and over where the magpie struts a flower billows from my guts
some things go in some things go out and next time back I'll come back a trout

The Shapes Between Us Turn to Animals
(Guitar isn't there, but can be played as an A(5) throughout the verse)
Bass Riff:                      or
A:-------5-3-0-----------   D:-------0-------------
E:-0-3-5-----------------   A:-----0---3-----------
			    E:-0-3-------0---------

Desires muck and algae were the shadows on the wall
glasses shatter ornaments on to the ground they fall
our hair like anemone's that wave beneath the seas
our fingers are like the  fingers of baboons up in the trees
A(5)
and the shapes between us turn into animals
	   B(7)
the shapes between us

The lion is your anger as it smashes up the chair
the zebra is my answers as your pounding up the stairs
that's black and white and yes and no and can't make up it's mind
when you gonna see that love is dumb as well as blind
oh the shapes between us turn into animals
the shapes between us

when the night is over and the dawn comes shining through
everything is smashed to bits including me and you
the animals are snoring open-mouthed inside the cage
waiting for the wine to turn and ache into a rage
'cause the shapes between us turn into animals
the shapes between us
