Dr. Horrible -- On The Rise -- Guitar Chords Tabs

Continuing our series of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog lyrics and chords/tabs I present the first song from Act II: On The Rise. I found some other like minded folks transcribing the lyrics at [http://whedonesque.org/viewtopic.php?t=1725](http://whedonesque.org/viewtopic.php?t=1725) they make getting the words right the first time easy. I've also decided to try the more inline approach of the dueling lyrics, hopefully this will make changes clearer.
(Dr. Horrible)
Bm intro
 
Bm
Any dolt with half a brain
Can see that human kind has gone insane
To the point where i don't know
If I'll upset the status quo
If I throw poison in the water main.
 
G               Bm
Listen close to everybody's heart
 
G                      Bm
And hear that breaking sound
 
G                    Bm
Hopes and dreams are shattering apart
 
    F#m             A
And crashing to the ground.
 
 
Bm                  G
I cannot believe my eyes
 
Bm                          A         G
How the world's filled with filth and lies
 
         Bm       A
But it's plain to see
 
       E/G#       G          Bm
Evil inside of me  is on the rise.
 
(Penny)
 
D
Look around
We're living with the lost and found.
Just when you feel you've almost drowned
You find yourself on solid ground
 
          Em                    Bm
And you believe there's good in everybody's heart
 
Em               Bm
Keep it safe and sound.
 
Em        Bm
With hope you can do your part
 
   A
To turn a life around
 
D                   G
I cannot believe my eyes
 
D                    A       G
Is the world finally growing wise?
 
Bm                 A
Cause it seems to me
 
             E/G#    G          Bm
Some kind of harmony  is on the rise.
 
(Both: Dr Horrible first line, Penny second)
 
D
Anyone with half a brain
Take        it     slow
 
D
            Could spend their whole life howling in pain
He looks at me and seems                         to know
 
D
                    Cause the dark is everywhere And Penny doesn't seem to care
The things that I'm afraid                       to show           And suddenly
 
D
That soon the dark in me is all that will remain
I feel                                 this glow
 
         Em                   Bm
         Listen close to      everybody's heart
And I believe there's good in everybody's heart
 
    Em                 Bm
And hear that breaking sound
    Keep it safe   and sound
 
Em                   Bm
Hopes and dreams are shattering apart
    With hope you can     do your part
 
F#                  A
And crashing to the ground.
     To turn a life around.
 
D                   G
I cannot believe my eyes
I cannot believe my eyes
 
D                           A         G
How the world's filled with filth and lies
How the world's finally     growing   wise
 
         Bm                       A
But it's plain to see
                And it's plain to see
 
        E/G#             G
Evil inside of me
       Rapture inside of me
 
          Bm
is on the rise...
is on the rise...
 
Bm outro
