  • Music:

How that rabbit feels; how I feel

To live between a rock and a hard place
—In between time—
Cruising in prime time
Soaking up the cathode rays

To live between the wars in our time
—Living in real time—
Holding the good time—
Holding on to yesterdays...
You know how that rabbit feels
going under your speeding wheels
Bright images flashing by
like windshields towards a fly
Frozen in that 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...


It slips between your hands like water
this living in real time
A dizzying lifetime
reeling by on celluloid

struck between the eyes by the big-time world
walking uneasy streets
Hiding beneath the sheets—
got to try and fill the void...
You know how that rabbit feels
going under your speeding wheels
Bright images flashing by
like windshields towards a fly
Frozen in that fatal climb
But the wheels of time
just pass you by...


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...

wheels can take you around
wheels can cut you down
from rockets' red glare
down to "Brother, can you spare—"
Another war, another wasteland

Another lost generation...

- Rush, 1984
