The guests are stood in silence

They stare and drink their wine

 On the wall the canvas hangs
 CE7
 Frozen there in time

 They marvel at the beauty

The horror and despair
 Am
At the wake of the Medusa
 CAm
 No one shed a tear

 CG
 Sit my friends and listen
 AmF
 Put your glasses down
 CG
 Sit my friends and listen
 Am
To the 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

Play Melody (2x) over the first part of the intro guitar part
