New album is awesome, and I enjoyed this song rly much, that's why I decided to write a 
for it. If you think you found a mistake, please inform me.
You gotta listen to the rhytm, its not hard to catch it. If you pay attention while 
to the song, in the first(calm) part of the verse - he is stroking the strings on clean 
but later in the second(heavier) part of the verse - he starts sliding with distortion.
The key is F#m.
/ - means slide.

Intro + Chorus:
F#5                C#5
Kiss the princess, Empress of the dark,
F#5                C#5
Drink the poison, listen to your heart,
F#5                C#5
Feed the Princess, Empress of the dark,
F#5                A5 G#5
All shall feel the fire.

Verse 1:
C#5                  A5/B5                 E5/
The sun is going down, the curtain's falling,
C#5                  A5/B5                 E5
The heat is rising now, the master's calling,
B5/C#5                     A5/B5
Into the night of thunder, into the dead of night,
B5/C#5                     A5/B5
And I will heed the calling and leave it all behind.

E5                               G5                D5
The holy man has lost the grail, signs of love from yesterday,
E5                               G5                D5
The eyes of god have turned away, the dream became alive,
A5                               G5             E5
All my life I've waited for the yearning in my heart,
A5                               B5
Right out there I see a star, the sun is going down.

Verse 2:
C#5                 A5/B5                 E5/
My heart is crying out, the fever's rising
C#5                 A5/B5
No one can stop me now, it's mesmerizing,
B5/C#5                           A5/B5
I break the chains that bind me, the chaos in my life,
B5/C#5                           A5/B5
I leave the world behind me and live in my own mind.

E5                          G5               D5
A holy land, another shore, no more pain and no more way,
E5                              G5            D5
She's calling me from far away, makes me feel alive,
A5                            G5           E5
Here I stand in front of her, losing my disguise,
A5                               B5
No regrets, I'm standing there, waiting for the bite.

Verse 3:

E5                             G5                 D5
Another life, a different way, signs of life from yesterday,
E5                            G5             D5
The memory will fade away, the dream became alive,
A5                            G5             E5
Here I stand in front of you, tearing of the lies,
A5                               B5
No regrets, I'm standing tall, I now am free to bite.
