Empty city,            it's calling your name
         Asus2*  A  A7 * A7     A              E7*  E6*  Em  Esus2*
Wheel of fortune,      sucking you into the game

     Asus2* A  A7 * A7   A                      E7*  E6*  Em  Esus2*
Babylonia,          promising all kinds of thrills
         Cmaj7
Here they all know what they want
         F#m             B*
And they chase it with a passion that kills

[repeat intro, drums start, bass changes]

She came in from the desert and the dust
And now she's trying to stay afloat on a crazy sea of lust
It's hard to love a city when that city has no heart
It'll rape your mind and sell your body
It'll tear your soul apart, wow tear it apart

PRE-SOLO (power chords, continues into same riff section as before)
              C5
'Cos when you scratch through the surface
                 D5                     E5
You won't find a damn thing underneath
F5                            B5       A5     G5
   And everybody's moving on, that's why I believe
        F5    (riff section)
It's an empty city, it's an empty city

SOLO (riff refers to same riff section as before, played only x2)

A5  riff  A5  B5  C5  D5 [repeat intro]

VERSE4 (same as verse3, only longer)
       E7*  E6*  Em  Esus2*                  E7*  E6*  Em  Esus2*
Empty city,           it's calling your name
         Asus2* A  A7 * A7     A                E7*  E6*  Em  Esus2*
Wheel of fortune,      sucking you into the game
       Cmaj7                 F#m              B*          Am    Bm
It's a fatal attraction that pulls you like a moth to the flame
C5                D5          Am    Bm
   'Til you've forgotten your name, 
C5           D5                     Am  Bm
   where the streets are lined with pain
C5       D5          riff section...
   But I can't stay away

OUTRO (play riff section until fade-out)
No, no
Well it's an empty city
Empty city
