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

About the artist behind Alien Shore Tab:

Rush is a Canadian rock band originally formed in August 1968, in the Willowdale neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario, presently comprised of bassist, keyboardist, and lead vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist Alex Lifeson, and drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. The band and its membership went through a number of re-configurations between 1968 and 1974, achieving their definitive form when Neil Peart replaced original drummer John Rutsey in July 1974, two weeks before the group's first U.S. tour.

Since the release of the band's self-titled debut album in March 1974, Rush has become known for the instrumental skills of its members, complex compositions, and eclectic lyrical motifs drawing heavily on science fiction, fantasy, and libertarian philosophy, as well as addressing humanitarian, social, emotional, and environmental concerns.

Musically, Rush's style has evolved over the years, beginning in the vein of blues-inspired heavy metal on their first album, then encompassing hard rock, progressive rock, a period dominated by synthesizers and, more recently, modern rock. They have influenced various musical artists, including Metallica,[1][2] The Smashing Pumpkins[3] and Primus,[3] as well as notable progressive metal bands such as Dream Theater[1] and Symphony X.[4]

Rush has won a number of Juno Awards, and was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1994. Over the course of their careers, the individual members of Rush have been acknowledged as being some of the most proficient players on their respective instruments, with each band member winning several awards in magazine readers' polls. As a group, Rush possesses 24 gold records and 14 platinum (3 multi-platinum) records. These statistics place Rush fifth behind The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Kiss and Aerosmith for the most consecutive gold and platinum albums by a rock band. Rush also ranks 78th in U.S. album sales according to the RIAA with sales of 25 million units.[5] Although total worldwide album sales are not calculated by any single entity, as of 2004 several industry sources estimated Rush's total worldwide album sales at over 40 million units.

The band is currently promoting their latest album, Snakes & Arrows with an intercontinental tour. The second leg began in San Juan, Puerto Rico on April 11, and is set to finish on July 24, 2008 in Noblesville, Indiana.[6]
