Nobody writes them like this anymore...
Not even Neil : (

Lyrically, I've always thought of this song as the sort of complementar y opposite of Imagine by John Lennon. You won't get wise with the sleep in your eyes, no matter what your dreams might be. It's not telling people to accept the world as it is, it's just saying that if you want things to change, you'd better start trying to change them.
I edited NatSci for my ringtone, starting at the drum break...I grin every time my phone rings! Something for Nothing is a great tune...too bad the people that voted for you-know-who didn't get it... "Waiting for the winds of change to sweep the clouds away...waiti n g for the rainbow's end to cast its' gold your way..."
A perfect encapsulatio n of prog rock in bite size; Rush's capper tunes on the end of each album uniformly satisfy.
Most of RUSH's songs are forgetten gems. I mean, how many times does anyone say "Natural Science! What a known classic!" lol
remingtr

One of many forgotten gems from Rush. Amazing musicianship and great lyrics.
