Ceiling Unlimited
by Rush

Album: Vapor Trails (2002)

Songfacts®:

  • The title is a condition of weather. It is the height ascribed to the lowest layer of clouds or obscuring phenomena when it is reported as broken, overcast, or obscuration and not classified as "thin" or "partial." The ceiling is termed unlimited when these conditions are not satisfied.
  • Neil Peart: (Cycle World magazine/Feb. 2003): "Not surprisingly, the TV in the bus was tuned to the Weather Channel. Looking at the forecast, I noted that it read 'Ceiling Unlimited.'" >>

  • Jaakko from Pudasjärvi, FinlandThe intro of this song is something incredible. It's so incredible I registered just to get to say this.
  • John from Asheville, NcI agree...love the lyrics here. Were it not for the mud production of this album, this song would shine even more. But I really don't knock it much for the mix/master. Still a great tune.
  • Jesse from L.a., CaThis is one of my favorites off of Vapor Trails. The lyrics are fantastic... Like every other Rush song, LOL!!!
