|Em |Em |Em |Em | 4x
 
 
[Verse 1]
Em       G    D/F#       Em    G D/F#
 Sacrifices buried with kings
Em           G  D/F#  Em                 G D/F#
 Accompany them on a journey with no end
Em                 G    D/F#        Em                 G D/F#
 To an afterlife that’s rich with fruit of all the gods
Em            G   D/F#
 And to face the demons
         Em          G D/F#
Of their underworld haunts

[Verse 2]
Em            G  D/F#     Em                    G D/F#
 The sentient is sent to seek out all the truth
Em                   G  D/F#  Em                  G D/F#
 A flight to earth that is a given from his birth
Em            G D/F#        Em   G D/F#
 To rise from ashes of the dead
Em               G  D/F#        Em           G  D/F#
 Out of the fire is sent to fulfill man’s desire
 
 
[Pre-Chorus]
C
 By power day and night and death he ruled them
Asus2
 The sky and earth and the fires too
C
 Two headed reptile, symbol of his reign
Asus2
 Universes of the underworld
C
 A life that’s full of all the wealth and riches
Asus2
 Can never last for an eternity
C                                     D
 After living in a golden paradise, that's the ultimate sacrifice
 
 
[Chorus]
Em      G D/F#   C     D C
 Prophecy of   sky gods,
Em    G  D/F# C   D C
 The sun and moon
Em   G   D/F# C        D C
 Passing of   old ways
Em     G   D/F#  C   D C
 Will come true soon
Em  G   D/F#  C   D C
Falling of   ages,
Em G   D/F#  C   D C
Forest of   kings
Em   G     D/F#  C       D C
The search for the truth,
Em   G   D/F#  C    D C
The book of   souls
 
 
[Instrumental]

[Verse 3]
Em              G  D/F#      Em  G D/F#
 The rulers of planets and stars
Em             G   D/F#     Em              G  D/F#
 The power of the kings of traders and the wars
Em         G D/F#          Em                G D/F#
 Planetary cycles and the phases of the moon
Em          G D/F#     Em                     G D/F#
 Is in the document a kingdom they will learn
 
 
[Pre-Chorus]
C
 They were praying to the gods of nature
Asus2
 And were living in the cities of stone
C
 Towers reaching upward to the heavens
Asus2
 Sacred wonders for the world unknown
C
 Make their lives be a mystery no more
Asus2
 Records kept and the passing of laws
C
 Sacred gods to the book of lies
        D
When a civilization dies
 
 
[Chorus]
Em      G D/F#   C     D C
 Prophecy of   sky gods,
Em    G  D/F# C   D C
 The sun and moon
Em   G   D/F# C        D C
 Passing of   old ways
Em     G   D/F#  C   D C
 Will come true soon
Em   G   D/F#  C   D C
 Falling of   ages,
Em  G   D/F#  C   D C
 Forest of   kings
Em   G   D/F# C        D C
The lost book of souls,
Em    G  D/F#   C   D C
 Destruction begins

C              Em             D             Em
Ascending the throne wearing feathers and shells
     C                Em              D    Em
He brought back their lives from the void

The underworld caves, Mayan slaves
   C           Em             D         Em
Defeat of the dark Lords, the ultimate proof
         C             Em         D    Em
In the place where the ancestors rule
