********************************************************************************

NOTES: 1) I'm pretty sure it's called an 'F#m+(Add B)'...it's a thoroughly Fripp chord
       2) Let the notes of the guit-arpeggios ring out as long as possible
       3) Try the guit-arpeggios on a 12 string if possible :) 

First the chords:

  Em  F#m+(Add B) Am  B+  B  Bm C
  0      x        0   x   2  2  x
  0      0        1   4   4  3  1
  0      2        2   0   4  4  0
  2      0        2   1   4  4  2
  2      2        0   2   2  2  3
  0      2        x   x   x  x  x

The vocal sections:

Em                    F#m+(Add B)       Am              B+  B
The wall on which the prophets wrote is cracking at the seams
Upon the instruments of death the sunlight brightly gleams
When every man is torn apart with nightmares and with dreams
Will no one lay the laurel wreath as silence drowns the screams

Em                      Bm
Confusion will be my epitaph 
As I walk a cracked and broken path               C                      Bm
If we make it we can all sit back and laugh but I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
	
Em                    F#m+(Add B)       Am              B+  B
Between the iron gates of fate the seeds of time were sown
And watered by the deeds of those who know and who are known
Knowledge is a deadly friend when no one sets the rules   
The fate of all mankind I see is in the hands of fools  (mellotron buildup of
							 C + Cm???)
