Raising Cain - The Mission

File updated: 7/1/96.

Thanks to all of the people (and there were a few!) who sent me the correct
lyrics to this song!

Verse Riff
| D bass        C# bass     Bb bass   G bass

or play it an octave higher: (personally I prefer the above riff)


Break Riff

Verse Bass

|| D  | C# | Bb | G  || * 4
|| Bb | G  | D  |    ||

Chorus Bass

|| F  | E  | G  | F# | F  | E  | G  | Eb  C |

Keyboard Ending

Switch between Dm and Dsus 2
(End the song on a Dsus 2)

How To Play It:

For all of the verses and the intro the bass plays the verse notes above,
the guitar plays the main verse riff.  In the verse when the bass plays
Bb, G, D the guitar switches to power chords (Bb5, G5, D5)

In the chorus the bass plays the notes above (1 bar each, except for the
last one - half a bar each for Eb and C).  And the guitar?  I don't have
a clue!  It's very quiet on the CD, you might as well just play the same
as the bass but an octave or two higher.

The 'break' guitar riff is the one that occurs just after the first chorus.


I'm sick and tired of this masquerade
I'm bored to death by the games we play
For to long now it's been a charade
Don't wanna stay around to p**s on parade

Gotta get the hell outta here
Too late now to wrap me up in chains
Too late now to bite my tongue, stop me

The chip on your shoulder is a monkey on my back
You steal the glory, I'll take the flak
Can't stand your accusations, your recriminations
It's time to jump this train cos we've crashed the station

Don't wanna take this ride no more
Too late now to wrap me up in chains
Too late now to bite my tounge, stop me

The gift of masque was like pearls before swine

Too late now to wrap me up in chains
Too late now to bite my tounge, stop me
