Parallel guitar chords

Transcription by Jody Beaulac. 

Intro: 4x

(Rhythm 1): 2x
C A# C A# G# F

(Rhythm 2): 2x w/ lyrics
C A# C A# G# F
C A# C A# G# D# A#

Sleeping on a time bomb, staring into space
There's an ocean of unpleasentries we are not prepared to face
Sitting on the fence post to watch the storm roll in
And terrified of the damage it will bring when it begins

C D# A#
It will begin

(Rhythm 3) 4x w/ lyrics:
C A# F

Splintered dreams of unity, our lives are parallel
So far from reality, our lives are parallel
Independent trajectories, our lives are parallel
Separate terms of equality, our lives are parallel

(Chorus Rhythm) 4x w/ lyrics:
C xx C G xx G G# G xxx

Our lives are parallel


(Rhythm 1)

(Rhythm 2 w/ lyrics)
Is there no redemption, no common good?
Is there nothing we can do for ourselves, or only what we should?
Comes the hard admission of what we don't provide
Goes the insistence on the ways and means that so divide

C D# A#
They so divide

(Rhythm 3 w/ lyrics)
Side by side suffering loneliness, our lives are parallel
Phony collective progress, our lives are parallel
Accepting that it's all such a mess, our lives are parallel
Gesturing without hope of redress, our lives are parallel

(Chorus rhythm w/ lyrics)
Our lives are parallel

G# A# B
Forging little plays of deception and pain

G# A# B
As we watch our foundations crumble away

G# A# B F#
Staggering like birds against a hurricane

B G# D# A#
And trying all the while to stay out of each others way

C A# G# G (4x)

(w/ Rhythm 3)
Broken dreams of unity, our lives are parallel
Independent trajectories, our lives are parallel
Screaming out for understanding, our lives are parallel
Turning inward and suffering, our lives are parallel

(w/ Chorus Rhythm)
Parallel, parallel
Our lives are parallel
Our lives are parallel
Our lives are parallel
