Take     a    look     in   the pool and what do you see
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pick strings lightly-------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

In   the   dark     depths there faces   beckoning   me
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

Can't   you   see   them   it's plain for  all  to  see
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

They   we're   there     oh   I know you don't believe me
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

    Oh I've never felt so strange      but I'm not going insane
--5----------------------------------5-------------------------------------
--5----------------------------------5-------------------------------------
--3----------------------------------3-------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've   no   doubt   that    you think I'm off of my head
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pick strings hard----------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

You   don't   say   but    it's in your  eyes   instead
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

Hours   I   spend   out    just gazing into  that  pool
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

Something   draws   me  there I don't know what  to  do
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

    Oh they drain my strength away     Oh they're asking me to stay 
--5----------------------------------5-------------------------------------
--5----------------------------------5-------------------------------------
--3----------------------------------3-------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nightmares                   spirits calling  me  
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-----3---2-3-2-5-3-2----0-0-0-----3--2-3-2----------------------------
------1-1-----------------3--------1-1----------3--------------------------

Nightmares                   they won't leave me be 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-----3---2-3-2-5-3-2----0-0-0-----3--2-3-2----------------------------
------1-1-----------------3--------1-1----------3--------------------------

All   my   life's   blood    is slowly  draining   away
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

And   I    feel      that   I'm weaker         everyday
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

Somehow      I      know      I haven't   long   to  go
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

Joining     them     at     the bottom   of  the   pool
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-----------

    Now I feel they are so near        I begin to see them clear
--5----------------------------------5-------------------------------------
