Caravan
Music: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson / Lyrics: Neil Peart

IT SEEMS LIKE A LIFETIME AGO - which of course it was, all that and more. For a boy, life on the farm was idyllic, but for the young man I became, that very peace and predictability were stifling, unbearable. I had big dreams, and needed a big place to explore them: the whole wide world.

Near our village of Barrel Arbor, the steamliners touched down and traveled on rails along the Winding Pinion River toward Crown City. Watching them pass in the night, how I prayed to get away . . .


In a world lit only by fire
Long train of flares under piercing stars
I stand watching the steamliners roll by

The caravan thunders onward
To the distant dream of the city
The caravan carries me onward
On my way at last
On my way at last

I can't stop thinking big
I can't stop thinking big

On a road lit only by fire
Going where I want, instead of where I should
I peer out at the passing shadows
Carried through the night into the city
Where a young man has a chance of making good
A chance to break from the past
The caravan thunders onward
Stars winking through the canvas hood
On my way at last

In a world where I feel so small
I can't stop thinking big


Headlong Flight
Music: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson / Lyrics: Neil Peart

THINKING BACK OVER MY LIFE, AND TELLING STORIES ABOUT MY "GREAT ADVENTURES" - they didn't always feel that grand at the time. But on balance, I wouldn't change anything. In the words of one of our great alchemists, Friedrich Gruber, "I wish I could do it all again."

All the journeys
Of this great adventure
It didn't always feel that way
I wouldn't trade them
Because I made them
The best I could
And that's enough to say

Some days were dark
I wish that I could live it all again
Some nights were bright
I wish that I could live it all again

All the highlights of that headlong flight
Holding on with all my might
To what I felt back then
I wish that I could live it all again

I have stoked the fire on the big steel wheels
Steered the airships right across the stars
I learned to fight, I learned to love and learned to feel
Oh, I wish that I could live it all again

All the treasures
The gold and glory
It didn't always feel that way
I don't regret it
I never forget it
I wouldn't trade tomorrow for today

I learned to fight and learned to love and learned to steal
I wish that I could live it all again


Tom Sawyer
Music: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson / Lyrics: Neil Peart and Pye Dubois

   A modern-day warrior
   Mean mean stride
   Today's Tom Sawyer
   Mean mean pride

Though his mind is not for rent
Don't put him down as arrogant
His reserve, a quiet defense
Riding out the day's events -
The river

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
-Catch the mist - Catch the myth
-Catch the mystery - Catch the drift

The world is the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his skies are wide

   Today's Tom Sawyer
   He gets high on you
   And the space he invades
   He gets by on you

No, his mind is not for rent
To any god or government.
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent -
But change is

What you say about his company
Is what you say about society
-Catch the witness - Catch the wit
-Catch the spirit - Catch the spit

The world is the world is
Love and life are deep
Maybe as his eyes are wide

   Exit the warrior
   Today's Tom Sawyer
   He gets high on you
   And the energy you trade
   He gets right on to
   The friction of the day
