X - repeat I 10 times


XI - repeat II 19 times with the 4th verse

"Haunting loneliness in the eye
 Skin covering secret scars
 His hand is waving a goodbye
 There's no response or action returned"

the 5th verse enters with keys:
"There is deep prejudice in me
 Outshines all reasons inside
 Given dreams all ridden with pain
 And projected unto the last"

the 20th time, II ends like this:

 gtr:
|--------------2--|let both instruments ring
|----------2------|and fade away...
|------8-----8----|
|----6---6--------|
|--4--------------|
|-----------------|

 keys:
|-----------------|
|--------------4--|
|--------------4--|
|-----------------|
|-----------------|
|-----------------|

the end.
