Rush lyrics alluding to mystic dissociative phenom
    #1068903 - 11/20/02 07:15 AM (14 years, 20 days ago)

Interesting site I found...check it out - http://www.egodeath.com/rushlyrics.htm

I am born;
I am me.
I am new.
I am free.

Look at me;
I am young.
Sight unseen;
life unsung.

My eyes have just been opened,
and they're open very wide.
Images around me
don't identify inside.

Just one blur I recognize,
the one that soothes and feeds.
My way of life is easy,
and as simple are my needs.

Yet my eyes are drawn toward
the mountain in the east.
Fascinates and captivates;
gives my heart no peace.

The mountain holds the sunrise
in the prison of the night,
till bursting forth from rocky chains,
the valley floods with light.

Living one long sunrise,
for to me all things are new.
I've never watched the sky grow pale,
or strolled through fields of dew.

I do not know of dust to dust.
I live from breath to breath.
I live to climb that mountain
to the Fountain of Lamneth.

I like their take on The Twilight Zone

The Twilight Zone
Lyrics by Neil Peart

A pleasant faced man steps up to greet you
He smiles and says he's pleased to meet you
Beneath his hat the strangeness lies
Take it off, he's got three eyes [3rd eye of perception, to see our hidden nature; refers to mystic dissociative state]
Truth is false and logic lost [Egoic logic contains error, now corrected]
Now the fourth dimension is crossed [especially, time is seen as frozen]

You have entered the Twilight Zone
Beyond this world strange things are known [they *are* known, though strange]
Use the key, unlock the door [the potent chemical key] [search for "key"; occurs several times - "the key to heaven's door", "I learned to turn the keys"]
See what your fate might have in store [experience of Fatalism]
Come explore your dreams' creation [world and self experienced as constructs]
Enter this world of imagination [world of illusion-like mental constructs]

You wake up lost in an empty town ['wake up' mystically] [scene empty of self]
Wondering why no one else is around ['no one' lives in the homunuclus-illusion]
Look up to see a giant boy [yourself-across-time, or satan or god]
You've just become his brand new toy [sense of being a puppet]
And no escape, no place to hide [sense of entrapment, robbed of feeling of power]
Here where Time and Space collide [dissolution of ego boundaries into spacetime] [compare phrase "In between time" in the song "Between the Wheels"]


Spiral out.. keep going....

i've seen rush countless times... i saw them live during the hemisphere's tour and became a fan for good. neil peart lyrics are usually very meaningful... as a drummer he is dead on... at one point bass player magazine reader poll had neil peart winner of "the best non bass playing muscian" 5 consecutive years in a row... these results were overwhelming and included votes cast by jazzers, which i found understandable, but interesting just the same when u consider there are countless jazz drummers who can hold their own....

peart is one man i would love to have the chance to sit and talk with...  :cool:

nice post... peace!

I especially like the lyrics to Entre Nous:

We are secrets to each other
Each one's life a novel
No-one else has read.
Even joined in bonds of love,
We're linked to one another
By such slender threads.

We are planets to each other,
Drifting in our orbits
To a brief eclipse.
Each of us a world apart,
Alone and yet together,
Like two passing ships.

Just between us,
I think it's time for us to recognize
The differences we sometimes fear to show.
Just between us,
I think it's time for us to realize,
The spaces in between
Leave room for you and I to grow.

:laugh:
