R.I.P. Neil Peart. I thought this user’s commentary on Signals was on point:
“[Signals is t]heir best LP. Artists like David Bowie/Lou Reed etc.. are held high for speaking to those growing up thwarted in dull suburban circumstances but Bowie fans have rich parents and they escape soon enough. Signals is for those that stay. Signals is the ultimate teen alienation art work.”Nick Austin, User Review of Signals, Allmusic.com. September 4, 2016.
Well some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
