Progression:

[Intro] x1

Keyboard arr. for guitar:

(D)                                     G
   I have mem'ry and awareness, but I have no shape or form.
          Em                      Bm
   As a disembodied spirit, I am dead and yet unborn.
            G                           D
   I have passed into Olympus, as was told in tales of old.
            A                        D
   To the City of Immortals, marble white and purest gold.

A
   I see the Gods in battle rage on high,
  C
   Thunderbolts across the sky.
      F
   I cannot move, I cannot hide.
            E
   I feel a silent scream begin inside.

[Riff 1] x4 w/ lyrics:

  Then all at once the chaos ceased.
  A stillness fell, a sudden peace.
  The Warriors felt my silent cry and stayed their struggle, mystified.

[Riff 1] x1

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/rush/hemispheres_cygnus_tab.html ]
 E            A F#            D      A7    Bm  A/C# A5
   Apollo was astonished; Dionysus thought me mad.
 E                A  F#                       D        A7   Bm   A
   But they heard my story further, and they wondered, and were sad.
 E                   A F#           D       A7    Bm  A/C# A5
   Looking down from Olympus on a world of doubt and fear.
 E          A   F#              D     A7 Bm  A/C#  A
   Its surface splintered into sorry hemispheres.

[Guitar Solo] - As in previous solo, there may be some legato hand
        sliding that sounds like pick sliding.
