Rush – New World Man

Rush – New World Man

  He’s a rebel and a runner He’s a signal turning green He’s a restless young romantic Wants to run the big machine He’s got a problem with his poisons But you know he’ll find a cure He’s cleaning up his systems To keep his nature pure Learning to match the beat of the Old […]

Rush – In The Mood

Rush – In The Mood

  Hey, now, baby Well, I like your smile Won’t you come and talk to me For a little while? Well, you’re makin’ me crazy The way you roll them eyes Won’t you come and sit with me? I’ll tell you all my lies [Chorus:] Hey, baby, it’s a quarter to eight I feel I’m […]

Rush – Distant Early Warning

Rush – Distant Early Warning

  An ill wind comes arising Across the cities of the plain There’s no swimming in the heavy water No singing in the acid rain Red alert Red alert It’s so hard to stay together Passing through revolving doors We need someone to talk to And someone to sweep the floors Incomplete Incomplete The world […]

Rush – A Farewell To Kings

Rush – A Farewell To Kings

  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 […]

Rush – Time Stand Still

Rush – Time Stand Still

  I turn my back to the wind To catch my breath Before I start off again. Driven on without a moment to spend To pass an evening with a drink and a friend I let my skin get too thin I’d like to pause No matter what I pretend Like some pilgrim Who learns […]

Rush – Freewill

Rush – Freewill

  There are those who think that life has nothing left to chance A host of holy horrors to direct our aimless dance A planet of play things We dance on the strings Of powers we cannot perceive ‘The stars aren’t aligned Or the gods are malign…’ Blame is better to give than receive [Chorus:] […]

Rush – Red Barchetta

Rush – Red Barchetta

  My uncle has a country place That no one knows about He says it used to be a farm Before the Motor Law And on Sundays I elude the eyes And hop the Turbine Freight To far outside the Wire Where my white-haired uncle waits Jump to the ground As the Turbo slows to […]

Rush – Limelight

Rush – Limelight

  Living on a lighted stage Approaches the unreal For those who think and feel In touch with some reality Beyond the gilded cage Cast in this unlikely role Ill-equipped to act With insufficient tact One must put up barriers To keep oneself intact [Chorus:] Living in the limelight The universal dream For those who […]

Rush – Subdivisions

Rush – Subdivisions

  Sprawling on the fringes of the city In geometric order An insulated border In between the bright lights And the far unlit unknown Growing up it all seems so one-sided Opinions all provided The future pre-decided Detached and subdivided In the mass production zone Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone [Chorus:] […]

Rush – Fly By Night

Rush – Fly By Night

  Why try? I know why The feeling inside me says it’s time I was gone Clear head, new life ahead It’s time I was king now — not just one more pawn [Chorus:] Fly by night, away from here Change my life again Fly by night, goodbye my dear My ship isn’t coming and […]

Rush – Spirit Of The Radio

Rush – Spirit Of The Radio

  Begin the day with a friendly voice A companion unobtrusive Plays that song that’s so elusive And the magic music makes your morning mood Off on your way, hit the open road There is magic at your fingers For the Spirit ever lingers Undemanding contact in your happy solitude [Chorus:] Invisible airwaves crackle with […]

Rush – Closer To The Heart

Rush – Closer To The Heart

  And the men who hold high places Must be the ones who start To mold a new reality Closer to the heart Closer to the heart The blacksmith and the artist Reflect it in their art They forge their creativity Closer to the heart Closer to the heart Philosophers and ploughmen Each must know […]
