T1: Luke Zimmermann, lukezim@texas.net, Rage Against The Machine, Calm Like A Bomb, 10/2/1999 S2: An awesome new Rage song from the Battle Of Los Angeles. Enjoy! S1: Intro/Main Riff: e-------------- B-12----------- G-------------- D-------------- 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: e---------------- B---------------- G-4-4-4---------- D-x-x-x---------- A-2-2-2---------- E---------------- Play around 7 times Chorus Part 1: e------------------------------------------------- B------------------------------------------------- G------------------------------------------------- D-----x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--------------------------- A-0h2-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-0h2-0h2-2-2-2-2-5--------- E-----x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x--------------------------- Chorus Part 2: e------------------------------------------------- B------------------------------------------------- G------------------------------------------------- D-----x-x-0--------x-x-0--------x-x-0--------0---- A-0h2-x-x---2--0h2-x-x---2--0h2-x-x---2--0-------- E-----x-x----------x-x----------x-x--------------- Solo Part 1: e------------------------------------------------- B-12-0-0-0--12-0-0-0-12-0-0-0--------------------- G------------------------------12-12-12-12-------- D------------------------------------------------- A------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------------- Play it fast!

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)
