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.

Jimmy Pena - jimmy@walrus.com

| = 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...
