Top 5 Rush Lyrics

1. “Throw off those chains of reason, and your prison disappears.”

Love this one! From hemispheres, the perfect ale for any hyper-logical idiot like me is this little quote which reminds us that once is a while, you go with your heart, not your head.

2. “One likes to believe in the freedom of music, but glittering prizes and endless comprimises shatter the illusion of integrity.”

Oh man, if people only listened to the lyrics of “The Spirit of Radio” they’d be treated to an amazing story about the hypocrisy of popular music, record companies, and marketing. Emotional feedback on timeless wavelength bearing a gift beyond price. Too fantastic.

3. “You can live in grace and comfort in the world that you transform.”

The head says to the heart – DO SOMETHING, you lazy bastard. So few do, you can make a difference with a little effort and a little thought. Great balance to the first quote.

4 “Science, like nature, must also be tamed.”

From the epic, and unmatched, Natural Science, this little number is more powerful than you’d think at first glance. We must pursue pure, unadulturated science, but without letting it get the better of us.

5 “Different eyes see different things, different hearts beat on different strings”

A lyric that has really held me since I first heard it many years ago, I loved the notion of perception of the heart. In reality, eyes don’t see different things, minds interpret different things.
