  • Lyrics
  • The lyrics, "Rise from the ashes and blaze" refer to the mythological death and rebirth of the Phoenix.
  • Geddy Lee (from the Bass Player Online archives): "This song ended up being an analog-tape mix. For the last few years I've mixed only to digital, because I figured it was just a better tape recorder. But certain songs have a heavier midrange content, and on playback the analog recorder softens the midrange a bit, giving it a more likeable sound. It's not as efficient-sounding in terms of the top and bottom end, but it's just nicer to listen to." >>

  • Louis from Glendale, AzThe song talks of what a child sees in the corruption of today's world.
  • John from Asheville, NcI love the chorus here, especially...and the lyrics are strong throughout, as I think they are on all of Counterparts. Wonderful album closer.
  • Louis from Phoenix, AzLike any song we would see at the end of an album, Rush seems to always make those well-made, yet emotional ending songs.
  • Dave from Cardiff, WalesPre-empted the aggressive guitar-based rock sound that was still lying a year or two over the horizon... The "Counterparts" album had a really wild, fresh, spirited feel about it, but in fact many of the songs on it were downward-looking...
