[Prologue]
    Am               F         G                 Am
"O' God of earth and altar bow down and hear our cry 
G   Am             F           G                Am
Our earthly rulers falter, our people drift and die 
G    Am              F             G                 Am 
 The walls of gold entombe us, the swords of scorn divide 
G    Am              F        G             Am *
Take not thy thunder from us, take away our pride." 
(from O God of Earth and Altar by G. K. Chesterton)

[Verse 1]
Am               Fmaj7        
Just a babe in a black abyss, 
   C            Gadd4/B
No reason for a place like this 
    Am                 Fmaj7            C     Gadd4/B
The walls are cold and souls cry out in pain 

[Verse 2]
   Am               Fmaj7        
An easy way for the blind to go, 
  C                   Gadd4/B
A clever path for the fools who know 
    Am            Fmaj7           C             Gadd4/B
The secret of the hanged man - the smile on his lips 

[Chorus]
Am         G      Am     C      D
 The light of the blind, you'll see 
    F     G        Am  G
The venom tears my spine 
Am        C      D        F   G            Am *
 The eyes of the nile are opening - you'll see

[Interlude]
|Am        |Fmaj7     |C         |Gadd4/B   | 

[Verse 3]
    Am                Fmaj7           
She came to me with a serpent's kiss 
       C               Gadd4/B
As the eye of the sun rose on her lips 
Am                Fmaj7          C    Gadd4/B
Moonlight catches silver tears I cry

[Verse 4]
Am             Fmaj7          
So we lay in a black embrace 
        C                 Gadd4/B
And the seed is sown in a holy place 
      Am            Fmaj7           C    Gadd4/B
And I watched and I waited for the dawn...

[Chorus]
Am         G      Am     C      D
 The light of the blind, you'll see 
    F     G     Am    G
The venom tears my spine 
Am        C      D        F   G            Am    N.C.
 The eyes of the nile are opening - you'll see...

[Prologue]
G    Am        F          G                   Am
Bind all of us together, ablaze with hope and free 
G  Am             F            G                     Am
No storm or heavy weather will rock the boat, you'll see 
G   Am               F                   G                  Am
The time has come to close your eyes and still the wind and rain 
G       Am              F         G              Am *
For the one who will be king, the watcher in the ring...

[Outro]
|Am        |Fmaj7     |C         |Gadd4/B   |
                                      It is 
|Am        |Fmaj7     |C         |Gadd4/B   |
 you,      ooh...                     It is 
|Am
 you...
