But glittering prizes and endless compromises
Shatter the illusion of integrity.
the words of the prophets were written on the studio wall,
And echoes with the sounds of salesmen. Of salesmen. Of salesmen.
The Lyric echoes with The Sound Of Silence... a tribute to Simon and GarFUNKel...
I always try to begin the day with a friendly voice
This came up on my iPod while I was out this morning, and I said to my wife, "I can't think of a band apart from Rush that could possibly use the 'one likes' construction in a rock song." =) Those crazy Canadians!
Not exclusively germaine to music
At some point between Hemispheres and Moving Pictures Neil Peart's lyrics went from pretty cheesy to absolutely awesome.
Maybe he shed his Ayn Rand influence.
Not so sure about that:
When they turn the pages of history
When these days have passed long ago
Will they read of us with sadness
For the seeds that we let grow
We turned our gaze
From the castles in the distance
Eyes cast down
On the path of least resistance
Cities full of hatred
Fear and lies
And cruel tormented eyes
Dressed in kingly guise
Beating down the multitude
And scoffing at the wise
