SONG: Cease
AUTHOR: Greg Graffin
ARTIST: Bad Religion
ALBUM: The Gray Race
YEAR: 1996
TABBED BY: The Jackal

I got an advance copy of Bad Religion's new album, "The Gray Race" (as
far as I know, it will be released March 5th). While this isn't (I guess)=

the easiest song on the album to figure out (especially lyric-wise) it's
the first one I've figured out so far, and IMHO one of the best, so
The lyrics are probably really screwed up by me, but from what I can make=

of 'em, they're some of Greg Graffin's best. Hey, the man has a Ph.D. for=


"Cease" -- Bad Religion

B         A         G       F#
Flat top pave-ment com-fort me
         B                      A             G             F#
Like a chemical reaction or a steamroller, spreading randomly
           B       A          G    F#
There=D5s a distant fuzz of a frequency
     B         A             G         F#
It tickles my ears, rustles under my feet
         B          A            G      F#
And it shakes the leaves off of every tree
G    A    F#
          B      A           G
What protection everlasting peace (??)
      A          B
Everything must cease

(same chords as before)
In-sti-tu-tion on the hill
Like a beacon in the mind of an ancestor to remind the people=D5s will (??)
There=D5s a shadow stain on the west facade
It is spread like a cave to entrap the pod (???)
And the decent folks find it oh so odd
Oh so odd
What protection everlasting peace
Everything must cease

(pluck 6th string only -- this part is slow)
B        A        G            F#
Brave me-mo-rials hewn white stone
           B                      A            G                   F#
Like the comforting caress of a mother or a friend you've always known
(strum from here -- resumes normal Bad Religion tempo)
     B          A           G   F#
It evokes such pain and significance
B                A           G     F#
What was once is reduced to remembrance
         B            A           G     F#
And the generations pass without recompense
G   A   F#
         B        A           G
What protection everlasting peace
       A          B
Everything must cease

Cease -- Bad Religion
Kind of an amend to my earlier tab
The way this sounds best is if you play it in E (power chords). Then the 
intro is:
EED CCB. the basic chord pattern is E D C B (Black top pavement...) When 
it goes "Shakes the leaves off of..." C D B, and "Violently" is C B A. 
"Everything must cease" is E D C ... D E.
If that's a little hard to understand, listen to the album. E. Hulka
