Progression:
(Intro)
(Verse Riff 1)x5 with lyrics:
You and I, we are strangers by one chromosome,
slave to the hormone, body and soul,
in a struggle to be happy and free,
swimming in a primitive sea
(Verse Riff 2)x1 with lyrics:
You and I, we must dive below the surface
(Verse Riff 1)x2 with lyrics:
A world of red neon and ultra-maroon
(Verse Riff 1)x1 with lyrics:
Shinning bridges on the ocean floor, reaching
to the alien shore
(Verse Riff 2)x1
(Pre-chorus)x8 with lyrics:
For you and me, for you and me, for you and me
sex is not a competition,
for you and me,
sex is not a job description,
for you and me, we agree
(Verse Riff 1)x4 with lyrics:
You and I, we are pressed
into these solitude's,
color and culture,
language and race,
just variations on a theme,
islands in a much larger stream
(Verse Riff 2)x1 with lyric:
Yeah
(Pre-chorus)x6 with lyrics:
For you and me, race is not a competition,
for you and me, race is not a definition,
for you and me, we agree
(Chorus)x3 with lyrics:
Reaching for the alien shore,
reaching for the alien shore,
reaching for the alien shore
(Intro)
(Solo)
(Verse Riff 3)x2
(Verse Riff 3)x8 with lyrics:
You and I, we reject these narrow attitudes,
we add to each other,
like a coral reef,
building bridges on the ocean floor,
reaching for the alien shore
(Pre-chorus)x10 with lyrics:
For you and me, sex is not a competition,
for you and me, race is not a definition,
for you and me, we hold these truths to be self-evident,
for you and me, we elect the job of president,
for you and me, we might agree
(Chorus)x3 with lyrics:
But that's just us, reaching for the alien shore,
but that's just us, reaching for the alien shore,
but that's us, reaching for the alien shore,
but that's just us
(1st half of Chorus) then lyrics:
Reaching for the alien shore
