Lyrics

The Squeeze
April 1, 2020
Tuning: DADAAD
(A part) PRESS on 4th and 5th strings ascending blues riff:
Open- 3rd -----------5th-------------7th --------------little cradle on the octave
Open- 3rd------------5th-------------7th------------- little cradle on octave
Keep this riff up through the part A



We are here….. to make a deal with you
Make a deal with you where we won’t get screwed by much
Here to feel…… feel out the temperature
Wade through hyperbole, and then see what is what


(B part) transition in by playing open chord strokes. On the B part, you are pressing down on the 2nd and 3rd strings
Open
The squeeze is applied and it’s all demanding
3rd Fret
The squeeze is applied , now we understand
2nd Fret open
The pressurized style of living in a tube
open
The squeeze is applied, for our own good
3rd fret
The squeeze is applied, like we knew that it would
2nd fret open
Now you’re going to tell us who to trust, and who to lose
We tried to stay focused, but we were distracted
Like silver pinballs being batted for practice
And now we fly rolling, rolling into the drop
We knew it was coming, it’s a systematic
Loss of control, the next logical step
We fly down to the hole, until you tell us when to stop
(A part) Drop dramatically into A Bluesy part and riff off of the there. Stay on first part for third verse.

No longer people…. Reduced to numbers
Finally numbers
Might as well give up our names
We saw the cages…. But they were others
Now it’s different folk in a different kind of cage
(Repeat last line)
(B Part on Steroids)

The squeeze is applied and it’s all demanding
The squeeze is applied , now we understand
The pressurized style of living in a tube
The squeeze is applied, for our own good
The squeeze is applied, like we knew that it would
Now you’re going to tell us who to trust, and who to lose
We tried to stay focused, but we were distracted
Like silver pinballs being batted for practice
And now we fly rolling, rolling into the drop
We knew it was coming, it’s a systematic
Loss of control, the next logical step
We fly down to the hole, until you tell us when to stop
The squeeze is applied and it’s all demanding
A passenger plane falling into crash landing
The settlement table where the microbes have the last say
The squeeze is applied and there is nothing we can do
It don’t discriminate it wants both me and you
Different kind of folks in a different kind of cage
We are different folk in a different kind of cage
