Just between us,
I think its time for us to realize
The spaces in between,
leave room,
For you and I to grow.

Cities full of hatred
Fear and lies
Withered hearts
And cruel, tormented eyes
Scheming demons
Dressed in kingly guise
Beating down the multitude
And scoffing at the wise
Can't we raise our eyes
And make a start
Can't we find the minds
To lead us closer to the Heart

"A Farewell To Kings"

Interesting thread.  I do like Losing It.  You'll probably get 300 responses and 300 different quotes!  That's one of the beauties of Rush.  I have always been partial to:

They shoot without shame
In the name of a piece of dirt (or oil..)
Or a change of accent
Or the colour of your shirt
Better the pride that resides
In a citizen of the world
Than the pride that divides
When a colourful rag is unfurled..

I was about 13 or so when this album came out and this had a pretty strong influence on my future social and political world views.

Mine has, for a long time, been from Best I Can:

You can tell me that I've got no class
Look around let's see who's laughing last
Don't give me speeches 'cos they're oh so droll
Leave me alone let me rock'n'roll.'

To you, is it movement or is it action?
Is it contact or just reaction?
And you...revolution or just resistance?
Is it living, or just existence?
Yeah, you! It takes a little more persistence
To get up and go the distance

madra sneachta- nice quote, i like that one too, but another one that catches my attention is: "all the worlds a stage, and we are mearly players, preformers, and portrayters. One's anothers audience, outside the guilded cage"

That has to be mine as well.  When I was in High school I used to run to school 2.5 miles every day (uphill even in the snow, but not both ways) and I always listened to The Enemy Within before I left the house.  What a powerful song, with great lyrics.

Leave out the fiction
The fact is, this friction
Will only be worn by persistence
Leave out condition
Courageous convictions
Will drag the dream into existence......

OH WOW

That was the first one that came to mind before opening this thread.

"rebel without a conscience, martyr without a cause"

Love it when Neil takes well known sayings and makes a pun out of it.

"We are immortal, for a limited time" from Dreamline.

This sums up a lot of RUSH type lyrics - profound and in some ways contradictory.

You can surrender
Without a prayer
But never really pray
Without surrender

You can fight
Without ever winning
But never ever win
Without a fight

"They sat a while in silence
Then they turned at last to me.
WE WILL CALL YOU CYGNUS
THE GOD OF BALANCE YOU SHALL BE".

Hemispheres


That has to be the best surprise ending to a song I have ever heard.  A fantastic ending to an incredible epic.

If I really got to thinking about it, I could probably think of some lyrics that I like better, but for now I'm going with...

"I believe in what I see
I believe in what I hear
I believe that what I'm feeling
Changes how the world appears"
