  INTRO:  Em - C - G - D  (2x)


          Em     C                G      D
      I.  in the tomb beneath the sand,
          Em         C            G           D
          curators exploring like ants upon a hand,
          Em              C                 G     D
          finding all the treasure that was hid,
          Em      C     G   D
          looking for redemption...


          G              Em
 CHORUS:  inside the pyramid
          D                    G
          in the Valley of the Kings.
          G              Em
          inside the pyramid
          D                       G

     II.  there were princes by the score.
          Em                  C         G                 D
          they had slaves and servants. none of them were poor.
          Em       C                 G      D
          nobody remembers what they did.
          Em      C        G    D
          we only know the paintings...

          Em             C            G      D
          "nothing we do ever will be found.
          Em  C          G     D
