Just the intro, but the rest shouldn't be hard to figure out.

Ab  C#m   (E   C#m)       B        E          B
Citadel reverberates to a thousand voices now dumb;
             A                              Ab
What have we become? What have we chosen to be?
C#m    (E    C#m)    B            E                B
Now all history is reduced to the syllables of our names
                        A                           Ab
Nothing can ever be the same; now the immortals are here.
At the time it seemed a reasonable course
   B                        A
To harness all the force of life without the threat of death
But soon we found that boredom and inertia are not negatives
but all the law we know;

(and dead our will and words like survival)
