I bought Farewell to Kings while in Toronto as a college kid-- sat alone in the hotel room overlooking downtown T at night while immersed in Xanadu. The cityscape of Rush's origin & this track remain inseparable in my mind.
Wow my favorite rush tune
Rush! Rush!!! Rush!!!! Rush!!!!!!
Good song... Wrong lyrics posted though
Pandora, you have the wrong lyrics posted.
Louder!!! My volume control only goes to 10!!!
When Geddy&Alex break out the double neck guitars, you know whats coming....so cool!
I'm in shock :) incredible

Rush… one of the best bands of all time, if not the best!!
I don't understand why everyone complains about pandora putting up wrong/incorr e c t lyrics, it's not their fault the website that provides the lyrics can't get its act together.

Almost hurts my brain. flashbacks of a youth gone wild

I feel bad for people who leave negative comments all over the IT stratosphere . I feel worse for the people who have to tolerate them in real life.

For those like me who want to look at the lyrics...her e they are...
'To seek the sacred river Alph
To walk the caves of ice
To break my fast on honeydew
And drink the milk of Paradise...'

I had heard the whispered tales of immortality
The deepest mystery
From an ancient book I took a clue
I scaled the frozen mountain tops of eastern lands unknown
Time and Man alone
Searching for the lost Xanadu

Xanadu...
Xanadu...

To stand within the Pleasure Dome
Decreed by Kubla Khan
To taste anew the fruits of life
The last immortal man
To find the sacred river Alph
To walk the caves of ice
Oh, I will dine on honeydew
And drink the milk of Paradise

A thousand years have come

Xanadu...

Held within the Pleasure Dome
Decreed by Kubla Khan
To taste my bitter triumph
As a mad immortal man
Nevermore shall I return
Escape these caves of ice
For I have dined on honeydew
And drunk the milk of Paradise
I guess you gotta pay to get correct lyrics •<:€>
What's with the lyrics? It's not even Rush! It would be one thing if Pandora mixed up two Rush songs, but this isn't even Rush's lyrics!
Why do they have the lyrics to the Whos Summer Time Bules instead of no lyrics of Rushs Xandau
This is a amazing song great instrumentat i o n by all 3 of them! Neil is a genius.. Seen them live a few times wish they would play some of there earlier songs like this one... : ) long live RUSH!!! And pandora those are not the right lyrics..
Amazing how Peart played all the percussion parts live, back in the day.
stevenrmclar e n

It's been a long time since I listened to this song, still one of the best ever. For Headphones Only....
No, they're still too ashamed of the fact they could no longer keep them out.
Do you think the hall of fame will give Rush enough time to play this song at the ceremony?
I don't think Olivia Newton John appears on this one.
One of the best songs ever written and also performed live....Peri o d !
Muy linda cancion, no la oi toda pero rush rock me..desde q tenia 15.. De edad..
The most talented band ever...perio d
dgsummerfun
Three guys doing all this music! Go Canada rock on :):)and smile God loves you!

Rush ROCKS!!! Great in concert!

This is the album that made me a die hard RUSH fan. Cygnus X-1 was the song. RUSH ROCKS!!!
As usual Neil's fantastic lyrics and the band's ability to give a home for those lyrics, gotta love this song. I always thought the opening bass lines by Geddy were awesome. Everyone always mentions 2112, Moving Pictures, and Permanent Waves as their best. I beg to differ, I have always loved all of Farewell To Kings.

Good call mmiller! Can remember puting on the big a** head phones, closing my eyes and drifting off into some far off galactic place! Those were the good old days!!!
Their greatest composition. . . to get STONED TO!
not to me it doesn't...be e n an avid rush fan for 25 years...stil l like nearly every song as much as i ever have. saw them live this year and they are still absolutely amazing. even like some of the new material and i am a hard critic.
darren593
It all sounds the same after awhile, Ive seen the band first in 1977, and then last time in 1994, there is nothing left to concour, they done it all, please don't become the Stones still appearing after 49 years. just say'en!
brian.gimbel
Their finest work!!!!
susan5551
My hubbies favorite group...stil l crazy after all these years...my son's an addict....th e y ' r e still too loud for me!!!!

Masterpiece is the only word that can describe this song.
yeager51
