The Change Cage
So...this is how I play it, but I'm sure it's likely played a full step lower than how I play it, but it sounds correct none the less. >:] Anyways...for now I'll post the basic chords with the lyrics and then add the specific tab parts later, including the solo...and I hope if it's not correct, that it helps someone tab it out more correctly... I play it in Standard E A D G B e tuning, but like I said, it may be played a full step lower if you know how to transpose...anyways Also, the clean parts I usually play with some Chorus effect or Reverb...maybe some good phaser mixed in there. Intro. A, A, C, D A, C, D(I like to let it ring out a bit, and tremolo/vibrato bend it a bit) Verse(First half clean) A I take a steam train to work C D Just like the one my father took A And I pass over the walls C D I see the people as I look (transtion from clean to distortion during these lyrics) I see Verse(second half heavy distortion[prolly use power chords]) A there's the block C D For folks with purple skin A C D There's the block for folks who have no chin A C D There's the block for me & all my kin A C D And over there is the change cage where we throw the rebels in CHORUS A I work the change cage Here on our side of the wall C B And I will hold the key until the day they say the cage will fall (2x) Verse 2(first half clean) A Walls of iron bolted with steel C D Two miles high that should hide how we feel A And in the city we've walled off each block C D This should work to segregate any racial melting pot Verse 2(second hald heavy distortion) A Long ago we learned of the trouble C D When a man steps out of his life's plastic bubble A So we walled off the city, caged thoughts that were free C D And now our lives are safe from any change that Could have come between you & me Repeat the CHORUS (2x) Solo [I'll include this, with the tab later] (played over the verse chords) Repeat the CHORUS (2x) Verse 3(first half clean) A They say an artist from block 616 C D Revived some old art just for his own kicks A They say his pictures were lude They say his women were nude C D So we throw them inside Verse 3(second half, heavy distortion) A Well now that artist can run, he can hide C D But sooner or later we'll throw him inside A I don't think the people should see C Well that's not art to me D So we'll throw them inside Repeat CHORUS(a few times actually, I'll listen again, and put the excact outro chorus here) And I will hold the key, until the day they say the cage will fall! Have fun playing, this has been my favourite song for the longest time...I hope this helps!!
