************************************************************************
The rest of the song is the same as above, with minor picking variations
************************************************************************

"When life becomes as barren   and as"
"cold as winter skies,  there's a"
"beacon in the darkness  in a"
"distant pair of eyes.  In"

"vain to search for order  and in"
"vain to search for truth,  But these"
"things can still be given,  Your"
"love has shown me proof"

Notes:  1) Use a light chorus or flanger, if possible.
        2) Keep the picking as simple as possible -
           don't play too many notes!
        3) Some of the picking above was arbitrarily chosen
           since it is difficult to hear every note on the record.
        4) The synthesizer is transcribed (at least) one octave lower
           than on the record.
        5) That piercing last synthesizer note can be simulated by playing
           an artificial harmonic on the 9th fret of the G string, picking
           directly above the middle pickup (on my guitar anyway).
