S2: An awesome new Rage song from the Battle Of Los Angeles.
Enjoy!

S1: Intro/Main Riff:
e--------------
B-12-----------
G--------------

A--------------
E--------------
Use a whammy pedal, slowly push down until the pedal
is completely open. (Note : I don't own a whammy pedal, 
but I tried it on one and I believe it's set to 8va)

OR

e-------------------- 
B-12////--21b24------
G--------------------
D--------------------
A--------------------
E--------------------
If you are like me and don't own a whammy pedal,
this sounds alright. Just gradually slide from the 12th
fret up to the 21st or 22nd, and bend up to 24th (1 or 
1.5 steps up depending to which fret you slide to)

Pre-Chorus Riff:

With delay so the slide echoes
throughout the little riff.

Lyrics (I don't have the lyric sheet
for this album, so these are wrong,
sorry, but they are just a guess):

I feel the funk blast
I feel the funk blast
I feel the funk blast
Yo yo yo yo yo 
check it out
yo yo yo yo
I be walkin' far(?) like Hitar
minoragant, fearless
more and more retractable
like bomb went off of Paris
let's steal from the funds
I always poor madness
this is the native son
who pulled out Zapata's gun
stroll through the sand of 
the city's remains
same bodies very hungry
but with different last name
you vultures robbin' everything
leave nothing but change
pick a point on the globe
there's some pictures of Che
there's a bank, there's a church
a vision that hurts
all fallen alone
all shocked and invert
there's a widow pink terrot
all reveled and tame
a white hunted charge
a serenge and face

I'll rhyme me a rhyme or be unheard

Chorus:
Whatcha say whatcha say whatcha say whatcha say what? (5x)
I'm calm like a bomb
Ignite (10x)

This ain't subliminal
fear the critical mass 
of culture rising
bulls from other countries
sell us America's devices
the man you bid leader
rides the shock of the fire
hopes lies in the smoke
of the rebels of the empire
yes the ulachantes in the city's remains
same bodies burried
but with different last names
the vultures robbin' everyone
leave nothing but change
pick a point here at home
there's some pictures of Che
there's a fear for the stage
so cold and so dead
there's a ditch full of bodies
except for the rich
there's a tap on the phone
the silence of stone
with another black screen
I'll be feeling like home

I'll rhyme me a rhyme or be unheard

Chorus:
Whatcha say whatcha say whatcha say whatcha say what? (5x)
I'm calm like a bomb
Ignite (10x)

Solo

I'll rhyme me a rhyme or be unheard

Chorus:
Whatcha say whatcha say whatcha say whatcha say what? (5x)
I'm calm like a bomb
Ignite (10x)

There's a mass without roots
there's a prison to fill
there's a country's soul 
that bleed potional bills
there's a strike and a line
of cops outside the mill
there's a right to obey
and there's a right to kill
(2x)
