The [Am]guests are stood in silence
They [F]stare and drink their [Am]wine
[Am]On the wall the canvas hangs
[C]Frozen there in [E7]time
[C]They marvel at the [G]beauty
The [Am]horror and [F]despair
At the [Am]wake of the Medusa
[C]No one shed a [Am]tear

[C]Sit my friends and [G]listen
[Am]Put your glasses [F]down
[C]Sit my friends and [G]listen
To the [Am]voices of the drowned

In the moonlight's ghostly glow
I waken in a dream
Once more upon that raft I stand
Upon a raging sea
In my ears the moans and screams
Of the dying ring
Somewhere in the darkness
The siren softly sings

Out there in the waves she stands
And smiling there she calls
As the lightning cracks the sky
The wind begins to howl

Melody (2x)

The architects of our doom
Around their tables sit
And in their thrones of power
Condemn those they've cast adrift
Echoes down the city street
Their harpies laughter rings
Waiting for the curtain call
Oblivious in the wings

The casket is empty
Abandon ye all hope
They ran off with the money
And left us with the rope

The casket is empty
Abandon ye all hope
They ran off with the money
And left us with the rope

[C]  [G]  [Am]                                 
Play Melody (2x) over the first part of the intro guitar part

In the moonlight's ghostly glow I waken in a dream
Once more upon that raft I stand upon a raging sea
In my ears the moans and screams of the dying ring
Somewhere in the darkness the siren softly sings

Out there in the waves she stands and smiling there she calls
As the lightning cracks the sky the wind begins to howl

Inst 2 ||:Am |Am |Am |Am :||

The architects of our doom around their tables sit
And in their thrones of power condemn those they've cast adrift
Echoes down the city street their harpies laughter rings
Waiting for the curtain call oblivious in the wings

The casket is empty abandon ye all hope
They ran off with the money and left us with the rope

The casket is empty abandon ye all hope
They ran off with the money and left us with the rope
