When the ebbing tide retreats
Along the rocky shoreline
It leaves a trail of tidal pools
In a short-lived galaxy
Each microcosmic planet
A complete society 

A simple kind mirror
To reflect upon our own
All the busy little creatures
Chasing out their destinies
Living in their pools
They soon forget about the sea

Wheels within wheels 
In a spiral array 
A pattern so grand and complex 
Time after time 
We lose sight of the way 
Our causes can't see their effects 

A quantum leap forward
In time and space
The universe learned to expand 

The mess and the magic
Triumphant and tragic
A mechanized world, out of hand 

Computerized clinic
For superior cynics
Who dance to a synthetic band 

In their own image
Their world is fashioned
No wonder they don't understand 

Wheels within wheels 
In a spiral array 
A pattern so grand and complex 
Time after time 
We lose sight of the way 
Our causes can't see their effects 

Science, like nature
Must also be tamed
With a view towards its preservation
Given the same
State of integrity
It will surely serve us well 

Art as expression,
Not as market campaigns
Will still capture our imaginations
Given the same
State of integrity
It will surely help us along 

The most endangered species
The honest man
Will still survive annihilation
Forming a world
State of integrity
Sensitive, open and strong

Wave after wave 
Will flow with the tide 
And bury the world as it does 
Tide after tide 
Will flow and recede 
Leaving life to go on 
As it was

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 »
