                [verse]

     Em               D                C                B
 The rusted chains of prison moons are shattered by the sun
  Em           D                    C            B
I walk a road, horizons change, the tournament's begun
    Am           Emaj7               F#m          B
The purple piper plays his tune, the choir softly sing
       Em             D                      C            D
Three lullabies in an ancient tongue for the court of the crimson king

[verse]

    Em             D            C               B
The keeper of the city keys put shutters on the dreams
  Em               D                   C            B
I wait outside the pilgrims' door with insufficient schemes
    Am                     Emaj7              F#m                      B
The black queen chants the funeral march, the cracked brass bells will ring
   Em               D                C            D
To summon back the fire witch to the court of the crimson king

[verse]

    Em                 D                C              B
The gardener plants an evergreen whilst trampling on a flower
  Em                  D             C                   B
I chase the wind of a prism ship to taste the sweet and sour
    Am              Emaj7               F#m       B
The pattern juggler lifts his hand, the orchestra begin
   Em               D                     C            D
As slowly turns the grinding wheel in the court of the crimson king

[verse]

   Em                 D               C                B
On soft grey mornings widows cry, the wise men share a joke
  Em           D                 C           B
I run to grasp divining signs to satisfy the hoax
    Am            Emaj7             F#m              B
The yellow jester does not play but gently pulls the strings
    Em            D                    C            D
And smiles as the puppets dance in the court of the crimson king
