Neil Peart has lost his incredibly brave three and a half year battle with brain cancer (Glioblastoma).  Rest in peace Neil Peart.

Neil Peart   September 12, 1952 – January 7, 2020

I guess this explains the farewell tour.   The other 2 band members knew about his condition,

 

Sprawling on the fringes of the city  In geometric order,
An insulated border
In-between the bright lights, And the far, unlit unknown

Growing up, it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided, The future pre-decided, Detached and subdivided, In the mass-production zone

Nowhere is the dreamer or the misfit so alone

Subdivisions
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
Subdivisions
In the basement bars, In the backs of cars, Be cool or be cast out

Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth

Drawn like moths, we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action
Lit up like a firefly
Just to feel the living night

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

Somewhere out of a memory
Of lighted streets on quiet nights

Subdivisions
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
Subdivisions
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out

Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth
