[Verse 1]
(Palm Muted some of the strumms, Like all of it's downstrumming)
Em                      C5
Dancing on the crumbling precipice
      D5                                A5
The rocks are coming loose just at the edge
        Em                C5
Are we laughing? Are we crying?
    D5                   A5
Are we drowning? Are we dead?
                     Em(loop until next verse)
Or is it all a dream?
 
[Verse 2]
(still Palmmuting)
Em                             C5
The bombs are getting closer everyday
               D5                A5
"That can never happen here" we used to say
Em                            C5
Have these wars come to our doorstep?
           D5                A5
Has this moment finally come?
                     Em(loop till chorus)
Or is it all a dream?

[Chorus 1]
(Open chords)
            Em
Are we not good enough?
             G
Are we not brave enough?
           Dm
Is the violence in our nature
           Am
just the image of our maker?
            Em
Are we not good enough?
             G
Are we not brave enough?
          Dm
To become something greater
            Am
Than the violence in our nature?
             C(Just use downstrums until the Em chord, I just did doubles at a faster tempo...)
Are we not good..good enough
                   Em(muted again)
Or is it all a dream?

[Verse 3]
(Palm Muted)
Em                                 C5
To a predetermined fate are we condemned
     D5                           A5
Or maybe we're a book without an end
           Em                   C5
We're not stories, we're not actors
        D5              A5
We're awake and in control
                     Em
And this is not a dream

[Verse 4}
(Open strumming)
          Em
So can we break this mold
            C5
And set in motion something new
      D5
Forgetting what we know
       A5
An evolution overdue
Em(half the strums of the others... )
Fight the current
C5(same as the Em)
Pull the ripcord
D5(Hammer it like the chorus C, then pause)
Get away! 

[Chorus 2]
            Em
Are we not good enough?
            G
Are we not brave enough?
          Dm
Is the violence in our nature
            Am
just the image of our maker?
             Em
Are we not good enough?
             G
Are we not brave enough?
         Dm
To become something greater
            Am
Than the violence in our nature?
              C(pound it like the first chorus)
Are we not good, good enough?

[Bridge]
(Strum this half of the bridge)
Dm  
We travel back to what we take
     Am                           C
We need a storm, let's pray for rain now
     G                       Em
To wash these roads away
Dm 
Let's get off track and wander far
Am                           C
Same roads lead to same destinations
       G                  Em(use like C in chorus, then slow down to a palm mute)
Follow nothing but your heart

(Muted like verse)

    Em                   G
We're talking in our sleep
       Dm                Am
And sleeping through our lives
    Em          G            Dm        Am
We dream of the places where we never die
    Em            G           Dm         Am
We step from our shadows and into the light

(Pause)

[Chorus 3]
            Em 
Are we not good enough?
            G
Are we not brave enough?
           Dm
Is the violence in our nature
           Am
just the image of our maker?
             Em
Are we not good enough?
             G
Are we not brave enough?
         Dm
To become something greater
            Am
Than the violence in our nature?
            Em       G
Are we not good enough?
             Dm      Am
Are we not brave enough?
             C(Stop hammering at like 'was' on the next line and pause)
Are we not good, good enough?
                Em(Single down strum)
Or was it all a dream?
