[Intro]
A#m F# G#

[Verse 1]
 A#m
Dancing on the crumbling precipice
     F#                                
The rocks are coming loose just at the edge
          C#                A#m
Are we laughing? Are we crying?
         G#                F#
Are we drowning? Are we dead?
G#                  A#m
Or was it all a dream?

[Instrumental]
A#m F# G#

[Verse]
 A#m
The bombs are getting closer everyday
     F#                                
'That can never happen here' we used to say
          C#                A#m
Have these wars come to our doorstep?
         G#                F#
Has this moment finally come?
G#                  A#m
Or was it all a dream?

[Instrumental]
A#m F# G#

[Chorus]
G#           F#    A#m                 F#      G# 
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
         F#               A#m              F#            G#
Is the violence in our nature just the image of our maker? 
A#m           F#    A#m                 F#      G# 
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
         F#               A#m     
To become something greater
           F#            G#
Than the violence in our nature?
            F#        G#                   A#m
Are we not good enough or was it all a dream?

[Verse 2]
 A#m
To a pretty time and fate are we condemned
     F#                                
Or maybe we're a book without an end
          C#                A#m
We're not stories, we're not actors
         G#                F#
We're awake and in control
G#                  A#m
And this is not a dream

[Pre-Chorus]
    A#m                F#
So can we break this mold
             G#               F#
And set in motion something new
            A#m       F# 
Forgetting what we know
                G#  
An evolution overdue
            F#
Fight the current 
           C#
Pull the ripcord
     G#
Get away!

[Chorus]
G#           F#    A#m                 F#      G# 
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
         F#               A#m              F#            G#
Is the violence in our nature just the image of our maker? 
A#m           F#    A#m                 F#      G# 
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
         F#               A#m     
To become something greater
           F#            G#
Than the violence in our nature?
            F#        G#                   A#m
Are we not good enough or was it all a dream?

[Bridge]
G#           F#
We travel back
    G#        A#m 
To what we take
A#m           G#
We need a storm 
                F#
Let's pray for rain now
    A#m          F#      G#
To wash these roads away
G#                F#      G#        A#m 
Let's get off track and wander far
A#m             G#          F#
Same roads reducing destinations
     A#m         F#      G#
Do nothing but show our heart
        F#              A#m
We're talking in our sleep 
       G#                   F#
And sleeping through our lives
     G#            F#                    A#m                                  
We dream of the places where we never die
     F#
We step from our shadows
     G#         F#   G#
And into the light

[Chorus]
G#           F#    A#m                 F#      G# 
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
         F#               A#m              F#            G#
Is the violence in our nature just the image of our maker? 
A#m           F#    A#m                 F#      G# 
Are we not good enough? Are we not brave enough?
         F#               A#m     
To become something greater
           F#            G#
Than the violence in our nature?
            F#        G#                   A#m
Are we not good enough or was it all a dream?
