Rush

Sept 9th 2014

BU2B is a great song off of Rush’s last Album called Clockwork Angels. It stands for Brought Up To Believe and is an interesting thought piece on religion. One of the nice things about Rush is they are not afraid to write what they want either musically or lyrically. This is the last 5 stanza’s of the song BU2B. As always I hope you are intrigued enough to look further into Rush and all they have to offer as a band. Any lyrics posted are copywrited by Rush and no money is made in my use of them.

Until our final breath
The joy and pain that we receive
Must be what we deserve
I was brought up to believe

Until our final breath
The joy and pain that we receive
Must be what we deserve
I was brought up to believe

All is for the best
Believe in what we’re told
Blind men in the market
Buying what we’re sold

Believe in what we’re told
Until our final breath
While our loving Watchmaker
Loves us all to

Believe in what we’re told
Until our final breath
While our loving Watchmaker
Loves us all to
Loves us all to death

Rivendell is a wonderful tribute to J.R.R. Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings and the Last Homely House contained within it. Being a Tolkein geek it seemed fitting to open the Rush page with a selection of lyrics from the song Rivendell, to be found on the 1975 album Fly By Night. Any lyrics posted are copywrited by Rush and no money is made in my use of them.

Sunlight dances through the leaves
Soft winds stir the sighing trees
Lying in the warm grass
Feel the sun upon your face
Elven songs and endless nights
Sweet wine and soft relaxing lights
Time will never touch you
Here in this enchanted place

You feel there’s something calling you
You’re wanting to return
To where the misty mountains rise and friendly fires burn
A place you can escape the world
Where the dark lord cannot go
Peace of mind and sanctuary by loud water’s flow
