Based on this song, who thinks rush is Christian or atheist? Please answer. Thx

I always wondered if Neil Peart played every song the exact same way each time in live shows. That in itself would make him one of the best photographic minds in human history. I can't even air drum the songs the same way each time, there is not the typical drum fill that you hear in most other songs outside of the musical genius that is Neil Peart/Rush.

I found that old rush is the best rush

The R&R HoF is A JOKE!! Basically a club for those in the industry to recognize *their* favorite bands and fellow managerial buddies, not bands of innovative style (i.e Maiden, Rush) nor commercial merit (i.e. 70s KISS). No true-r words were uttered than when Johnny Rotten turned down the Hall's induction of the Pistols by describing it as 'a piss stain!'

Genetic blends, with uncertain ends,

Somewhere, many years ago, it was stated that the original lyrics were to be "If you choose not to decide, you could not have made a choice." I can't remember the reason that Geddy gave for the change. Either one is cool.

I never understood this song till I looked at the words makes a lot of sense
Report as inappropriate
There is a deeply philosophica l message in this song. "You can choose from phantom fears and kindness that can kill. I will choose a path thats clear, I will choose freewill." This song warns us about the risk of succumbing to fear (terror) and also those that promise to protect us and keep us safe from harm (politicians ) . It is a very similiar warning to that given to us by Ben Franklin. "Those that would give up liberty for security will get none and deserve neither."
