I think Bravado, the whole song, every line, is ingenious. The only other one that can top those lyrics is probably Dreamline which I think to be one of the most intelligent and poignant songs ever written, blowing away classics like "Stairway to Heaven". I love Peart's writing style.

And now youíre trembling on a rocky ledge
Staring down into a heartless sea
Done with life on a razorís edge
Nothingís what you thought it would be

I also could never forget The Pass. That song is so meaningful to me, the lyrics really hit me when I first heard them, they still do.

Nice one Boz new_thumbsupsmileyanim.gif

Mine would be; "You don't get something for nothing."

Classic and Mightily true.

I also live by this one aswell;
"Well I know they've always told you selfishness was wrong,
Yet it was for me not you, I came to write this song."

Thats life, it pays to keep people happy and be nice and caring, but at te same time, always have yourself as your main priority.

Two of my fav.
everyday glory

In the house where nobody laughs
And nobody sleeps
In the house where love lies dying
And the shadows creep
A little girl hides shaking
With her hands on her ears
Pushing back the tears
'Til the pain disappears

Mama says some ugly words
Daddy pounds the wall
They can fight about their little girl later
Right now they don't care at all

open secrets

It went right by me
At the time it went over my head
I was looking out the window
I should have looked at your face instead

"Today's Tom Sawyer he gets high on you and the space he invades he gets by on you."

"Catch the mist, catch the myth, catch the mystery, catch the drift."

"And the men who hold high places
Must be the ones who start
To mould a new reality
Closer To The Heart."
Blacksmith and the artist
Refect it in their art
They forge their creativity
Closer To The Heart
Philosophers and ploughmen
Each must know his part
To sew a new mentality
Closer To The Heart
You can be the captain
And I will draw the chart
Sailing into destiny
Closer To The Heart."

I actually have two, I love both.
"Too many hands on my time
Too many feelings
Too many things on my mind
When I leave I don't know
What I'm hoping to find
When I leave I don't know
What I'm leaving behind..."

~Analog Kid


"Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass production zone
Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone"


both on the album "Signals"

On the lighter side, I love the idea that we can get inside a dog's brain.

In a dog's brain
A constant buzz of low-level static
One sniff at the hydrant
And the answer is automatic

And when Geddy sings,

I'd rather be a tortoise from Galapagos
Or a span of geological time
than be living in these dog years

I just think that is a funny and memorable line

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

I think it's neat too when he does that. My favorite twist on an old saying is "Let us not go gently to the endless winter night."
There are so many good passages, it's hard to choose. But if you put a gun to my head  my favorite would have to be:

You can do a lot in a lifetime
If you don't burn out too fast
You can make the most of the distance
First you need endurance
First you've got to last

A very, very hard decision, but in the end I'll go with Subdivisions:

"Growing up it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass production zone"

I can relate.

I liked all of the other ones posted, but I don't think anyone posted this one yet.

My high school year book quote is as follows:

"Better the pride that resides
In a citizen of the world
Than the pride that divides
When a colourful rag is unfirled"

I chose that quote, because I graduated in 2002 which was not too far from 9/11. I was getting very sick of the fascist patriotic flag waving that was going on around then.

Look at how divided we are as a country and world right now.

When the dragons grow too mighty
To slay with pen or sword
I grow weary of the battle
And the storm I walk toward
When all around is madness
And there's no safe port in view
I long to turn my path homeward
To stop awhile with you

When life becomes so barren
And as cold as winter skies
There's a beacon in the darkness
In a distant pair of eyes
In vain to search for order
In vain to search for truth
But these things can still be given
Your love has shown me proof

This song always makes me feel better smile.gif

We each pay a fabulous price, for our visions of paradise, but a spirit is a vision with a dream... with a mission!

Also- We can walk our road together

If our goals are all the same

We can run alone and free, if we pursue a different aim

Let the truth of love be lighted

Let the love of truth shine clear

Sensiblity, armed with sense and liberty, with the heart and mind united in a single,  perfect sphere.

Well, you can stake that claim
Good work is the key to good fortune
Winners take that praise
Losers seldom take that blame
If they don't take that game
And sometimes the winner takes nothing


We go out in the world and take our chances
Fate is just the weight of circumstances
That's the way that lady luck dances
