Alexander's Lament
by Heart of Cygnus from the album Utopia
http://www.heartofcygnus.com/
Tab by Danny Mendoza

Acoustic Guitar (F Bb Eb Ab C f)        Legend:
                                        h = hammer on     p = pull off
Chords:
  Em:[022000]        Dsus4:[xx0233]
  C: [x32010]        Em7:  [022033]
  G: [320033]        Cadd9:[x32033]
  D: [xx0232]        Dsus2:[xx0230]

For simplicity's sake the chords are given as their regular shape when the guitar is 
half a step up, or using a capo on the first fret.

The intro and outro riffs are played using tap harmonics while fretting an Fm (Em shape 
the capo on 1st). To sound a tap harmonic, you fret the note that you want to hit, and 
tap the fret wire 12 frets above that note. I have indicated the fret you want to
tap using a capo.

                          Em
Have they never felt the pain?
     C                        G                 D     Dsus4  D
Of a life that's forgotten, a soul that lies in chains
                      Em         C                    G            D     Dsus4  D
Do they ever feel the tears that fall from heaven and wash way the shame?
                                                   1st                       2nd

        C                       G               D     Dsus4  D
All the joy and the heartache that only I could know
                         Em7
And will they ever see a day
     Cadd9                       G           D     Dsus2  D
When all eyes are open and we're free to fly away?

 Well I        do
D/B   C   Em7  D
 Yeah I        do

Have they never had a dream?
