Rush - The Enemy Within

        From the CD 'Grace Under Pressure'
                Written by Lee/Lifeson/Peart
                Mercury/Polygram Records 818476-2

        This song is in D. The guitar is chorused. This tab is not
entirely correct as there are many picking nuances throughout the song
and I didn't tab out each and every one. I just tabbed the main ones and
you are free to experiment with them.

| = not a standard bar line; just used to separate music
~ = vibrato or held note
s = slide
/ = slide up from infinity
\ = slide down into infinity
[x35553] = fret box; this is a C chord - this is the same as standard
  tablature, only turned on its side. Tilt your head clockwise to read.
PM = Palm Mute; lightly touch the strings at the bridge with the edge of
        the fret hand

Progression: [Riff 1] x2 [Riff 2] x4 [Riff 2] x8 /w lyrics: Things crawl in the darkness that imagination spins. Needles at your nerve ends crawl like spiders on your skin. Pou - pou - pou - pounding in your temples, and a surge of adrenalin. Every muscle tense to fence the enemy within. [Riff 3] x1 [Riff 3] x2 /w lyrics: I'm not not giving in to security under pressure, I'm not missing out on the promise of adventure, I'm not giving up on implausible dreams, Experience to extremes, experience to extremes... [Guitar tacet] while keyboard and bass imply [Riff 2] x4 [Riff 2] x8 /w lyrics: Suspicious looking stranger flashes you a dangerous grin. Shadows across your window, was it only trees in the wind? Every breath a static charge, a tongue that tastes like tin. Steely-eyed outside to hide the enemy within. [Riff 3] x1 [Riff 3] x2 /w lyrics: I'm not not giving in to security under pressure, I'm not missing out on the promise of adventure, I'm not giving up on implausible dreams, Experience to extremes, experience to extremes... [Riff 4] x8 [Riff 1] x3 To you is it movement or is it action? Is it contact or just reaction? And you, revolution, just resistance? Is it living or just existence? Yeah you, it takes a little more persistance to get up and go the A A distance. [Riff 3] x2 /w lyrics: I'm not not giving in - I'm not missing out - I'm not giving up on implausible dreams, Experience to extremes... [Riff 3] x2 /w lyrics: I'm not not giving in to security under pressure, I'm not missing out on the promise of adventure, I'm not giving up on implausible dreams, ___(some kind of weird chord here \/ can't make it out) Experience to extremes, experience to extremes...
