It's a shame I only discovered Rush after they stopped touring for good. :(
The greatest band in the galaxy!

I'm so happy to have learned about rush from my amazing father. Him and I have gone to 4 of their concerts together. If I ever have a son I'm thinking about naming him rush.

I. Overture

"And the meek shall
inherit the earth."

II. Temples of Syrinx

... "The massive grey walls of the Temples rise from the heart of every Federation city. I have always been awed by them, to think that every single facet of every life is regulated and directed from within! Our books, our music, our work and play are all looked after by the benevolent wisdom of the priests..."

We've taken care
of everything
the words you read
the songs you sing

the pictures
that give
pleasure to
your eye

one for all and all for one
work together common sons
never need to wonder
how or why

we are the Priests
of the Temples of Syrinx
our great computers
fill the hallowed halls

we are the Priests
of the Temples of Syrinx
all the gifts of life
are held within our walls

look around this world we made
equality our stock in trade
come and join the
Brotherhoodof Man

what a nice contented world
let the banners be unfurled
hold the Red Star proudly
high in hand

III. Discovery

... "Behind my beloved waterfall, in the little room that was hidden beneath the cave, I found it. I brushed away the dust of the years, and picked it up, holding it reverently in my hands. I had no idea what it might be, but it was beautiful" ...
... "I learned to lay my fingers across the wires, and to turn the keys to make them sound differently. As I struck the wires with my other hand, I produced my first harmonious sounds, and soon my own music! How different it could be from the music of the Temples! I can't wait to tell the priests about it! ..."

what can this
strange device be
when I touch it
it gives forth a sound

it's got wires that vibrate
and give music
what can this thing be
that I found

see how it sings
like a sad heart
and joyously
screams out its pain

sounds that build
high like a mountain
or notes that fall
gently like rain

I can't wait to share
this new wonder
the people will all
see its light

let them all make
their own music
the Priests praise my name
on this night

IV. Presentation

... "In the sudden silence as I finished playing, I looked up to a circle of grim, expressionless faces. Father Brown rose to his feet, and his somnolent voice echoed throughout the silent Temple Hall." ...
... "Instead of the grateful joy that I expected, they were words of quiet rejection! Instead of praise, sullen dismissal. I watched in shock and horror as Father Brown ground my precious instrument to splinters beneath his feet..."

I know it's
most unusual
to come
before you so

but I've found
an ancient miracle
I thought that
you should know

listen to
my music
and hear
what it can do

there's something here
as strong as life
I know that
it will reach you

The Priests:

yes we know
it's nothing new
it's just a
waste of time

we have no need
for ancient ways
the world is
doing fine

another toy
that helped destroy
the elder
race of man

forget about
your silly whim
it doesn't
fit the plan

I can't believe
you're saying
these things
just can't be true

our world could
use this beauty
just think
what we might do

listen to
my music
and hear
what it can do

there's something here
as strong as life
I know that
it will reach you

The Priests:

don't annoy
us further
we have our
work to do

just think about
the average
what use have
they for you

V. Oracle: The Dream

... "I guess it was a dream, but even now it all seems so vivid to me. Clearly yet I see the beckoning hand of the oracle as he stood at the summit of the staircase" ...
... "I see still the incredible beauty of the sculptured cities and the pure spirit of man revealed in the lives and works of this world. I was overwhelmed by both wonder and understanding as I saw a completely different way to life, a way that had been crushed by the Federation long ago. I saw now how meaningless life had become with the loss of all these things ..."

I wandered home
though silent streets
and fell into
a fitful sleep

escape to realms
beyond the night
can't you show me light

I stand atop
a spiral stair
an oracle
confronts me there

he leads me on
light years away
through astral nights
galactic days

I see the works
of gifted hands
grace this strange
and wondrous land

I see the hand
of man arise
with hungry mind
and open eyes

they left our planets
long ago
the elder race
still learn and grow

their power grows
with purpose strong
to claim the home
where they belong

home to tear the
Temples down
to change

VI. Soliloquy

... "I have not left this cave for days now, it has become my last refuge in my total despair. I have only the music of the waterfall to comfort me now. I can no longer live under the control of the Federation, but there is no other place to go. My last hope is that with my death I may pass into the world of my dream, and know peace at last."

the sleep is still
in my eyes
the dream is still
in my head

I heave a sigh
and sadly smile
and lie a while
in bed

I wish that it might
come to pass
not fade like
all my dreams

just think of what my life
might be
in a world like
I have seen

I don't think
I can carry on
this cold
and empty life

my spirits are low
in the depths of despair
my lifeblood
spills over

VII. The Grand Finale

Attention all Planets
of the Solar Federation

We have assumed control
My greatest pain is I'll never get to see Rush perform live.
