Intro: F#m  E6  D6maj7  E6

F#m    	      E6         D6maj7  E6                            	
Bored of the life in the city of gold
      E           F#m      H                                           
He'd left and let nobody know
 F#m           E6      D6maj7             E6             
Gone were the towers he had known from a child
  E             F#m       H                          
Alone with the dream of a life
     C#           F#        G# 
He travelled the wide open road                               
                Fm         
The blinkered arcade
               G#        F#          Db/F 
In search of another to share in his life
 Eb Bb C#
Nowhere
D#m       F#          G#              
Everyone looked so strange to him

        D#m              
They've got no horns and they've got no tail
     G#m                       
They don't even know of our existence
      D#m                    
Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold
       G#m                   
That lies in the deep distance, he cried

And wept as they led him away to a cage
"Beast that can talk", read the sign
The creatures they pushed and they prodded his frame
And questioned his story again
But soon they grew bored of their prey
Beast that can talk ?
More like a freak or publicity stunt
Oh, no

They've got no horns and they've got no tail
They don't even know of our existence
Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold
That lies in the deep distance, he cried



            Eb                                      Db
And broke down the door of the cage and marched on out
     G#                                                    Eb     F7
He grabbed a creature by the scruff of his neck, pointing out
Bb                Bbmaj7          Eb       Bb  
There, beyond the bounds of your weak imagination
Bb             Bbmaj7       Eb               F  
Lie the noble towers of my city, bright and gold
Eb  F   G                  F                   C        Eb 
Let me take you there and show you a living story
Bb                C#           Eb      
Let me show you others such as me
        G#m     C# 
Why did I ever leave ?

They've got no horns and they've got no tail
They don't even know of our existence
Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold
That lies in the deep distance, he cried
And wept

And so we set out with the beast and his horns
And his crazy description of home
After many days journey we came to a peak
Where the beast gazed abroad and cried out
We followed his gaze and we thought maybe we saw
A spire of gold - no, a trick of the eye that's all
But the beast was gone and a voice was heard

They've got no horns and they've got no tail
They don't even know of our existence
Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold
That lies in the deep distance, he cried

                       F#m  E6  D6maj7  E6
Hello friend, welcome home

I'm sorry about the "D6maj7" chord, but i don't know any other name of it. It's 
supposed to be D-B-C#-F#. If anyone know a better name for this chord, please comment or PM me :)
