Progression: [Intro] x1 Keyboard arr. for guitar: (D) G I have mem'ry and awareness, but I have no shape or form. Em Bm As a disembodied spirit, I am dead and yet unborn. G D I have passed into Olympus, as was told in tales of old. A D To the City of Immortals, marble white and purest gold. A I see the Gods in battle rage on high, C Thunderbolts across the sky. F I cannot move, I cannot hide. E I feel a silent scream begin inside. [Riff 1] x4 w/ lyrics: Then all at once the chaos ceased. A stillness fell, a sudden peace. The Warriors felt my silent cry and stayed their struggle, mystified. [Riff 1] x1 Play this 2 times with lyrics below:

E A F# D A7 Bm A/C# A5 Apollo was astonished; Dionysus thought me mad. E A F# D A7 Bm A But they heard my story further, and they wondered, and were sad. E A F# D A7 Bm A/C# A5 Looking down from Olympus on a world of doubt and fear. E A F# D A7 Bm A/C# A Its surface splintered into sorry hemispheres. [Guitar Solo] - As in previous solo, there may be some legato hand sliding that sounds like pick sliding. (Rhythm guitar plays above riff 2 times)
