This song is mostly an arpeggiated chord over the verses 
and a strummed chorus.  On the arpeggiation, you basically 
just walk the bass note to the chord.

I will give the secrets you request 
and you will be the one to sacrifice 
 
so lay your olive arms across my breast 
and sing the poems, free the butterflies 
 
 
{chorus} 
G                                   D 
Pray your gods who ask you for your blood 
G                                          D 
For they are strong and angry jealous ones 
G                             D    A   G 
Or lay upon my altar now your love 
G 
I fear my time is short 
G 
There are armies moving close 
G 
Be quick, my love 
 
{verse -- same riff} 
 
I feel my body weakened by the years 
As people turn to gods of cruel design 
 
Is it that they fear the pain of death 
Or could it be they fear the joy of life? 
 
 
{chorus} 
 
G                                   D 
Pray your gods who rule you by your fears 
G                                         D 
For they are quick and ruthless punishers 
G                             D    A  G 
Or lay upon my altar now your love 
G 
I fear my day is done 
G 
There are armies moving on 
G 
Be quick, my love
