Dream Theater - Solitary Shell chords version 1

Chords
Transpose
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 |  x4



C#m B G#m He seemed no different from the rest
C#m B E Just a healthy normal boy
C#m B G#m His mama always did her best
C#m B E And he was his daddy's pride and joy
C#m B G#m He learned to walk and talk on time
C#m B E But never cared much to be held
C#m B G#m And steadily he would decline
C#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 lunatic
BDisturbed from time to time.
ALost within himself
E BIn his solitary shell.
ETemporary catatonic
BMadman on occasion
AWhen will he break out
E B EOf his solitary shell?
Bridge: |C#m B E C#m B G#m | x2
C#m B G#m He struggled to get through his day
C#m B E He was helplessly behind
C#m B G#m He poured himself onto the page
C#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 lunatic
BDisturbed from time to time
ALost within himself
E BIn his solitary shell
EA momentary maniac
Bwith casual delusions.
AWhen will he be let out
E BOf his solitary shell?
After the end of the lyrics there is an instrumental part played.
