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
