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 »

It's not how fast you can go
The force goes into the flow
If you pick up the beat
You can forget about the heat 
More than just survival 
More than just a flash 
More than just a dotted line 
More than just a dash 

It's a test of ultimate will
The heartbreak climb uphill
Got to pick up the pace
If you want to stay in the race 
More than just blind ambition 
More than just simple greed 
More than just a finish line 
Must feed this burning need
In the long run 

From first to last
The peak is never passed
Something always fires the light
That gets in your eyes
One moment's high
And glory rolls on by
Like a streak of lightning
That flashes and fades
In the summer sky 

Your meters may overload
You can rest at the side of the road
You can miss a stride
But nobody gets a free ride 
More than high performance 
More than just a spark 
More than just the bottom line 
Or a lucky shot in the dark
In the long run

You can do a lot in a lifetime
If you don't burn out too fast
You can make the most of the distance
First you need endurance
First you've got to last
