Just wanted to introduce myself. I have been into Rush and their beautiful music and meaningful lyrics since the age of 12/13. I was advised by a fellow Marillion fan some years ago in the school playground I would like them. I knew if I listened they would surpass Fishes lyrics on Script to a jesters tear..which was very successful over here the UK at the time.
I then purchased a copy of Permanent Waves and that was that. I quickly began feeding my new obsession very quickly with other albums.
I would love to know how the lyrics have opened you up to maybe thinking differently or learning a new way to look at things. Also do you think that we are now living in an age that was kinda predicted in the earlier albums possibly or by certain symbols? Or maybe that's just my curiosity showing as a lover of research???
Iv just listened to Hold your Fire
"We each pay a fabulous price
For our visions of paradise
But a spirit with a vision
Is a dream with a mission"
I hold the beautiful soul Peart as as one of the reasons I began to write and be so curious and not accept certain discourse, truths and histories and for that I thank him. Its been a sad time but those words will live on forever. x (Big hug wherever you are)

In regards to your question, my sister and I were talking earlier this year and thought how the lyrics of Witch Hunt are very apt for the times we live in.
They say there are strangers who threaten us
Our immigrants and infidels
They say there is strangeness, too dangerous
In our theatres and bookstore shelves
Those who know what's best for us
Must rise and save us from ourselves
Quick to judge
Quick to anger
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear, walk hand in hand

PW is a great album to start out on a RUSH journey. For me it was 2112 and that album fit so perfectly into my 14 yr old Sci Fi obsession and interest in individuality vs .conformity and collectivism. The incredibly music and lyrics span four plus decades and allow for much exploration and self indulgence. There's always a good conversation to be had. Look forward to it.
