Ben from Phoenix, AzHaha wow. First time I had ever read all the lyrics at once, written down. Never knew it was environmental until now. Every time I heard it before, always thought it (as well as Red Lenses) was about communism. "This is not a false alarm. This is not a test." "Let us not go gently to that endless winter night."
John from Asheville, NcI think the lyrics exceed the music and melody here. Good song from a good album.
Brian from Meriden, CtOne of the things I really enjoy about Neil's brilliant lyricism are the subtleties. I can go back and put on a Rush album 2 or 3 decades old and pick up new subtleties I never "got" before. And with a slightly altered sense of the song I am further stimulated to explore its meaning with each adroit turn of the phrase. Well done, O Baterista.
