I picked this one out on piano.  It's kind of tough to do the descending
baseline with a guitar, but it sounds really cool.

As the night begins for one.

(Chords the same until they pick up again)
Staring through the message in his eyes lies a solitary son 
from the mountain called the freecloud where the
eagle dare not fly, and the patience in his sigh
gives no indication for the 
townsmen to decide, so the village dreadful groans
Pronouncing gross diversion as the 
label for the dog.  Ooo it's the madness in his eyes
