Now Cliff starts the spoken part:



Riff 1 x6

(spoken):  When a man lies, he murders some part of the

           world.  These are the pale deaths which men miscall their

           lives.  All this i cannot bear to witness any longer.

           Cannot the kingdome of salvation take me home?



Riff 3 x2

  "Dyers Eve"
