This is a long song 11:40 minutes long. Its been difficult one too tab out. 
because there are so many verses and choruses, and solos in between. 
So I hope i did it justice and someone finds it helpful and useful.

********
Even after all the days are gone
Even though the writer knows he's wrong
Still the words are written and recalled
In the empty isolated halls
Held in high regard, he comes again
Surface gone from under me, no more security
The future lies erased
These are the last remaining days

If in doubt about the meaning meant
Make this one decision your defense
Stay alive to calculate the dead
Lines of color radiate ahead
Silence now descends upon the earth
Can't deny the evidence
Not now, not even once
The future lies erased
These are the last remaining days

Heart beaten down

When the vision cuts across the sky
There is no reflection in my eye

BRIDGE
*******
Bbm   D#m          Bbm      D#m
Light shatters the skeleton circus
Bbm                C#     Bbm
And the carnival's deadly host
Bbm  D#m     Bbm     D#m
No   memory, nothing remembered
Bbm                   C#      Bbm
From the pages of the Book of Ghosts
G#m        D#m    Bbm      F
Though the system stays in place
C    G         D      A
What if I'm no longer safe
Bbm   F       Bbm           D#m
Night falling gathers at my heels
Bbm                       C#   Bbm
Lines the contours of the cold parade
Bbm    D#m         Bbm        D#m
Search everywhere, nothing is revealed
Bbm                   C#   Bbm
Fear creeps along the cavalcade
G#m         D#m       Bbm   F
Through the fields of evergreen
C       G     D    A
Passing by as if unseen
G#m        D#m    Bbm       F
Though the system stays the same
C       G      D      f
What if I'm no longer sane.
