Is its ending the best because it means the song is finally over?

I'll try to avoid obvious choices: Lock and Key and Prime Mover have awesome endings. And how about those "fake" endings on Limbo!

Some great endings from RUSH, no doubt, but not many things in life - musically or otherwise - come close to:

Spinning, whirling
Still descending
Like a spiral sea
Unending...

Sound and fury
Drown my heart
Every nerve
Is torn aparrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrttttt ...


.. and then Alex, as always, adds the perfect touch
