Hold your fire 
Keep it burning bright
Hold the flame
'Til the dream ignites
A spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission 

I hear their passionate music
Read the words
That touch my heart
I gaze at their feverish pictures
The secrets that set them apart 

When I feel the powerful visions
Their fire has made alive
I wish I had that instinct 
I wish I had that drive 

Spirits fly on dangerous missions
Imaginations on fire
Focused high on soaring ambitions
Consumed in a single desire 

In the grip of
A nameless possession 
A slave to the drive of obsession 
A spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission

I watch their images flicker
Bringing light to a lifeless screen
I walk through
Their beautiful buildings
And I wish I had their dreams 

But dreams don't need
To have motion
To keep their spark alive
Obsession has to have action 
Pride turns on the drive 

It's cold comfort
To the ones without it
To know how they struggled 
How they suffered about it 

If their lives were
Exotic and strange
They would likely have
Gladly exchanged them
For something a little more plain
Maybe something a little more sane 

We each pay a fabulous price
For our visions of paradise
But a spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission

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 »
