Half the world hates
What half the world does every day
Half the world waits
While half gets on with it anyway 

Half the world lives
Half the world makes
Half the world gives
While the other half takes 

Half the world is
Half the world was
Half the world thinks
While the other half does 

Half the world talks
With half a mind on what they say
Half the world walks 
With half a mind to run away 

Half the world lies
Half the world learns
Half the world flies
As half the world turns 

Half the world cries
Half the world laughs
Half the world tries
To be the other half 

Half of us divided 
Like a torn-up photograph
A torn-up photograph
Half of us are trying 
To reach the other half 
To reach the other half 

Half the world cares
While half the world is wasting the day
Half the world shares
While half the world is stealing away

Half the world lives
Half the world makes
Half the world gives
While the other half takes 

Half the world cries
Half the world laughs
Half the world tries
To be the other half

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 »
