Em D
The wall on which the prophets wrote
Am B7
Is cracking at the seams.
Em D
Upon the instruments of death
Am B7
The sunlight brightly gleams.
Em D
When every man is torn apart
Am B7
With nightmares and with dreams,
Em D
Will no one lay the laurel wreath
Am B7
When silence drowns the screams.


Em Bm
Confusion will be my epitaph.
Em Bm
As I crawl a cracked and broken path
Em Bm
If we make it we can all sit back and laugh.

C Am Bm
But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
C Am Bm
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
C B
Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying

Em D
Between the iron gates of fate,
Am B7
The seeds of time were sown,
Em D
And watered by the deeds of those
Am B7
Who know and who are known;
Em D
Knowledge is a deadly friend
Am B7
If no one sets the rules.
Em D
The fate of all mankind I see
Am B7
Is in the hands of fools.

With nightmares and with dreams,

Will no one lay the laurel wreath
Am B7
When silence drowns the screams.

Confusion will be my epitaph.
Em Bm
As I crawl a cracked and broken path
Em Bm
If we make it we can all sit back and laugh.
