a truly under-rated gem...haunting chorus...ominous and foreboding musically and lyrically...if i didnt have 50 top 10 favorites by this one of a kind group... this would be a top 10 beauty..

You know how that rabbit feels
Going under your speeding wheels
Bright images flashing by
Like windshields towards a fly
Frozen in the fatal climb
But the wheels of time
Just pass you by
Wheels can take you around
Wheels can cut you down
We can go from boom to bust
From dreams to a bowl of dust
We can fall from rockets' red glare
Down to "Brother can you spare..."
Another war
Another wasteland
And another lost generation

One of the greatest songs Rush has ever wrote.Joe - Dunn, Nc
I really love the ambiance of this song mostly. There's an ominous quality to the mood here.John - Asheville, Nc
This song reminds me of my youth. Couple it with "Subdivisions" and "The Analog Kid" and you have a trilogy of youthful fear, exuberance and isolation, those three songs are the reason I made it out of adolescence.Mike - Cheshire, Ct
Another one of this bands lost gems. Newer fans take notice. The concept for lyric meshed with the music is one of the bands best on this album.................Robert - Schaumburg, Il
The live performance of this during their 30th Anniversary Tour was truly amazing, complete with 3d animation and lasers... CRAZY!!!Jesse - L.a., Ca
