Running wire through ceiling, ceiling joists blocking access to the top of the frame

So I was in my attic last night, about to drill some holes in the top of the wall to run cables down the wall. I found above the wall is two parallel ceiling joists that are completely blocking the wall that I'm trying to run cables to. I don't want to drill into the joists and risk structural integrity damage, so does anyone know of a way to workaround this without drilling into the joists?
