[Riff 1] x3 w/ lyrics:

Another endless day. Silhouettes of grey.
Another glass of wine. Drink with eyes that shine.                   G  D
To days without that chill at morning. Long nights, time out of mind.

   Crimson misty memory, hazy glimpse of me.

 D          A     G G  D D      [Riff 2] x1            D A
   Give me back my wonder, I've something more to give.

[Riff 1] x3 w/ lyrics:

Another foggy dawn. The mountain almost gone.
Another doubtful fear. The road is not so clear.
My soul grows ever weary, and the end is ever near.  G  D

        If anyone can fix this - PLEASE do.

Again, this Rush song is the culmination of many hours of work. It is
not 100% complete, but every effort has been made to include as much as
possible. Part V "Bacchus Plateau" does not have the complete solo. Part
VI "The Fountain" does not have the complete solo either. I was not able
to work them out in their entirety, but all my work is present. This work
is entirely original in that I did not take anything from any previously
existing parts which are available online in order to create the tab.
Speaking of which, 'No One At The Bridge' was previously tabbed by Paul
Bryant . 'Panacea' was previously tabbed by
Vidar Bergh . 'Didacts and Narpets' is care of
Branden Robinson .

[x35553] = fret box; this is a C chord - this is the same as standard
  tablature, only turned on its side. Tilt your head clockwise to read.
