Rush

Rush is a Canadian rock band formed in August 1968, in the Willowdale neighbourhood of Toronto, Ontario. The band is composed of bassist, keyboardist, and lead vocalist Geddy Lee, guitarist and backing vocalist Alex Lifeson, and drummer, percussionist and lyricist Neil Peart. The band and its membership went through a number of re-configurations between 1968 and 1974, achieving their iconic lineup when Peart replaced original drummer John Rutsey in July 1974, two weeks before the group's first United States tour. Rutsey's departure stemmed primarily from health concerns regarding his diabetes. In 2015 the band played their final show due to Peart's declining health. more »

Under the gaze of the angels
A spectacle like he's never seen
Spinning lights and faces
Demon music and gypsy queens

The glint of iron wheels
The bodies spin in a clockwork dance, oh
The smell of flint and steel
A wheel of fate, a game of chance

How I prayed just to get away
To carry me anywhere
Sometimes the angels punish us
By answering our prayers
By answering our prayers

A face of naked evil
Turns the young boy's blood to ice
The deadly confrontation
Such a dangerous device

The glint of iron wheels
The bodies spin in a clockwork dance, oh
The smell of flint and steel
A wheel of fate, a game of chance

Oh, shout to warn the crowd
Accusations ringing loud
A ticking box, in the hand of the innocent
The angry crowd moves towards him with bad intent

How I prayed just to get away
To carry me anywhere
Sometimes the angels punish us
By answering our prayers
By answering our prayers

The glint of iron wheels
The bodies spin in a clockwork dance, oh
The smell of flint and steel
A wheel of fate, a game of chance
