Oh I was sent to find the lonesome place Where I was lost but left to trace By carving riddles on the lonesome vine.
Oh but rumor has it that I wasn't born, I just walked in one frosty morn. Into the vision of some vacant mind.
Oh once I held a pony by its flying mane, And once I called the shadow in the turning game But I will fight this stranger that you should fear So I won't be a burden of tomorrow dear
Aw Xavier's on the border of the sun Swings on the chambers of your guns. And tries to shoot the chord and light the path.
Aw but hell I'm just a blind man on the plains, I drink my water when it rains, And live by chance among the lightning strikes.
Oh once I held a glacier to an open flame And once I felt like wildcat in the fallen game. But I will fight this stranger that you should fear So I won't be a burden of tomorrow dear.
Oh the singers on the edge to feed the canyons mouth They will go on forever til they sing you out of time. But I will fight this stranger that you should fear So I won't be a burden of tomorrow dear.

"Cruise" climbed from 6-5 on the Hot 100 in its 34th week. In doing so it set a record for the slowest ascent to the Top 5 in the chart's history, which was beaten by Imagine Dragon's "Radioactive" 42-week clamber to #4 three weeks later.
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
