Am The guests are stood in silence F Am They stare and drink their wine Am On the wall the canvas hangs C E7 Frozen there in time C G They marvel at the beauty Am F The horror and despair Am At the wake of the Medusa C Am No one shed a tear C G Sit my friends and listen Am F Put your glasses down C G 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 C G Am F C G Am Play Melody (2x) over the first part of the intro guitar part Outro:
