Intro: F#m7Bm(add C#) – F#msus2sus4 – Bm(add C#)

F#m7          Bm(add C#)          C#m7                          
Bored of the life in the city of gold
      C#m7         F#m7   B                                        
He'd left and let nobody know
F#m7          Bm(add C#)                  C#m7                
Gone were the towers he had known from a child
   C#m7         F#m7       B                          
Alone with the dream of a life
     Db           Gb        Ab7 
He travelled the wide open road                               
                Fm         
The blinkered arcade
               Ab        Gb          Fm 
In search of another to share in his life
Ab7/Eb     Bb/D  Db
  No  -   whe -  re
Ebm       Gb/Db      Ab/C     Ab         
Everyone looked so strange to him

        Ebm7              
They've got no horns and they've got no tail
     Abm7                       
They don't even know of our existence
      Ebm7                    
Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold
       Abm7                   
That lies in the deep distance, he cried

And wept as they led him away to a cage
"Beast that can talk", read the sign
The creatures they pushed and they prodded his frame
And questioned his story again
But soon they grew bored of their prey
Beast that can talk ?
More like a freak or publicity stunt
Oh, no

They've got no horns and they've got no tail
They don't even know of our existence
Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold
That lies in the deep distance, he cried



            Eb                                      Gb/Db
And broke down the door of the cage and marched on out
     Ab7                                                   Db     F
He grabbed a creature by the scruff of his neck, pointing out
Bb                F6          Eb6          Bb  
There, beyond the bounds of your weak imagination
Bb             F6           Eb6               F/C  
Lie the noble towers of my city, bright and gold
Eb/G  F   G                  D7sus4             C        Eb 
Let   me take you there and show you a living story
Bb/D            Db             Eb      
Let me show you others such as me
       Abm7     Abm7/Db 
Why did I ever leave ?

They've got no horns and they've got no tail
They don't even know of our existence
Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold
That lies in the deep distance, he cried
And wept

And so we set out with the beast and his horns
And his crazy description of home
After many days journey we came to a peak
Where the beast gazed abroad and cried out
We followed his gaze and we thought maybe we saw
A spire of gold - no, a trick of the eye that's all
But the beast was gone and a voice was heard

They've got no horns and they've got no tail
They don't even know of our existence
Am I wrong to believe in a city of gold
That lies in the deep distance, he cried

                       F#m7 - Bm(add C#) - F#msus4sus2 - Bm(add C#)
