Seagulls calling to one another 

     E                               B                 F#

And professional wrestling on pay-per-view 

B           E             B                 E 
Windows and light and the radio blaring all night

And the truth slowly dawning on me and then on you

Just in case our assassin should finally come through 

B            E 
And ???  and matches 

B                             E

With the ??? closing in on me and then on you
