Everything I Ever Needed To Know In Life, I Learned From Rush, Part II

Rush-74-2-patti2112More words of wisdom from my favorite lyricist. No one has ever framed the Problem of Evil better in verse:

Faith is cold as ice

Why are little ones born only to suffer

For the want of immunity or a bowl of rice?

And who would hold a price

On the heads of the innocent children

If there’s some Immortal Power to control the dice?

And a few more nuggets I missed the first time. Got others?

1. Race is not a definition

2. The more that things change, the more they stay the same

3. Each of us, a cell of awareness, imperfect and incomplete

4. We’re linked to one another by such slender threads

5. A tired mind become a shape-shifter

6. Big money got no soul

7. Life in two dimensions is a mass production scheme

8. It’s true that love can change us… never quite enough

9. We fight the fire, while were feeding the flames

10. Plenty of people will kill you for some fanatical cause

11. We each pay a fabulous price for our visions of paradise

12. Most of us just dream about the things we’d like to be

13. Though we might have precious little, it’s still precious
