Dream Theater Solitary Shell chords version 1
I felt that the other versions of this song were a little off, mainly because they lacked C#m and G#m chords. Play it through and let me know what you think! Side Note: The Introduction and Bridge sections are slightly simplified with the E and G#m chords. It sounds like 3 or 4 chords are played after the B in quick succession, however the E and G#m chords complement these chords well so the E and G#m chords are the only ones needed. Intro: |C#m B E C#m B G#m | x4C#m B G#m He seemed no different from the restC#m B E Just a healthy normal boyC#m B G#m His mama always did her bestC#m B E And he was his daddy's pride and joyC#m B G#m He learned to walk and talk on timeC#m B E But never cared much to be heldC#m B G#m And steadily he would declineC#m B E Into his solitary shell.B A EAs a boy, he was considered somewhat odd.B A EKept to himself most of the time.B A EHe would daydream in and out of his own world,A BBut in every other way, he was fine.EHe's a Monday morning lunaticBDisturbed from time to time.ALost within himselfE BIn his solitary shell.ETemporary catatonicBMadman on occasionAWhen will he break outE B EOf his solitary shell?Bridge: |C#m B E C#m B G#m | x2C#m B G#m He struggled to get through his dayC#m B E He was helplessly behindC#m B G#m He poured himself onto the pageC#m B E Writing for hours at a time.B A EAs a man, he was a danger to himself.B A EFearful and sad most of the time.B A EHe was drifting in and out of sanity.A BBut in every other way, he was fine.EHe's a Monday morning lunaticBDisturbed from time to timeALost within himselfE BIn his solitary shellEA momentary maniacBwith casual delusions.AWhen will he be let outE BOf his solitary shell?After the end of the lyrics there is an instrumental part played.
