Intro:
Shane Speaks:
Once upon a time
Before the lakes and
rivers were polluted
Before the animals were 
poached to extinction
And before man had destroyed 
the earth's atmosphere
There was a great ship
G#m
   This vessel was to
venture into new waters
To find new resources to make
life easier and more enjoyable
F#m
   It was a simple mission for the crew
Who were excited to be a part of this union
C#m
   They pledged their allegiance to the captain
And vowed to be there no matter what
                                  G#m
In sickness, health, and possible death

As time passed by there was
no new land to be found
                 F#m
As the days grew shorter
And the nights grew 
longer and colder
The crew became more and more 
skeptical about the captain's vision
 C#m
Originally passionate and 
committed true and faithful
They now began to revolt


Verse 1:

Sing:
    G#m
You crossed the line
I was honest
                 E
I never promised anything
Just a brotherhood to 
stand for something
C#m
  And everyone should 
take the lead
            E
Follow your dreams
If you don't try you fail


Refrain 1:

Shane Speaks:
G#m
   As the mutiny started and the 
captain was overthrown and 
           E
chained He asked them why 
their minds had changed
           C#m
There's no gold to be found
no treasure in the ground
E
  We won't die for this
We won't die for you


Verse 2:

Sing:
       G#m
You've lost your minds
I was honest
                 E
I never promised anything
Just a brotherhood to 
stand for something
C#m
   And even if they disagree
            G#m
Follow your dreams
If you don't try you fail


Interlude: E--F#--G#m- x2


Refrain 2:

Shane Speaks:
E
  This dream is now
F#
  A shipwreck in the sand
G#m
  They gave up they 
made all their demands
E
  The storm consumed 
F#
  fifty seven souls
G#m
  Who died in vain 
his love they stole


Chorus 1:
E           F#
  This union a battle 
           G#m
fought and lost
This union is not
          E
about the cause
          F#
This union was 
            G#m
never about love
This union This union
(Repeat)


Chorus 2:
E           F#
  This union a battle 
           G#m
fought and lost
This union is not
          E
about the cause
          F#
This union was 
            C#m(hold)
never about love

So Im new at reading chods. I usually read normal tabs... When it says play like C#m does that mean play the C minor chord??
Sorry, like I said, Im new at this.
