Artist : The Handsome Family Song : Gentlemen [Intro] : Em F#/D G Am C G [Chorus] : G D G C G Gentlemen, I tell you now, C G I swear the truth Em D/F# G Am C G D G D/F# I saw the table rise, the teacup flew [Verse 1] : Bm G From tempered glass I built the apparatus Bm G to alight in the presence of phantasmus Am Em Filaments within detect a change, Am Em D in aero-pressure, barometric waves [Chorus] : G D G Gentlemen, in the name of science! C G Gentlemen, I now can prove: Em D/F# G Am C G D G D/F# the unseen world is close, it pushes through [Interlude] : Bm G Bm G Am Em Am Em D [Chorus] : G D G Gentlemen, the lights blew out! C G Gentlemen, the curtains moved! Em D/F# G Am C G D G D/F# A world of light resides just past our view [Verse 2] : Bm G Within the crooks of vacuum tubes Bm G a caged spirit lit aglow the room Am Em Burst forth from the shattered tube Am Em D It thinned my blood, burnt me, ravaged cruel [Chorus] : G D G Gentlemen, the lights do flicker! C G Gentlemen, the air it cools! Em D/F# G Am C G D G Who's with me here, listening in this room? [Outro] : Gentlemen, the world grows dark! Gentlemen, the curtains moved! Who's with me here, whispering in this room?
