from the point of conception,t o the moment of truth at the point of surrender,to the burden of proof from the point of ignition,to the final drive the point of the journey is not to arrive ….go thru life in a humble way…what's that that's been said? 10 lbs. of humiliation for 1 oz. of humility…..k e e p moving forward : )

Love the key change in the middle with the "I" stuff (I guess quoting the 'Prime Mover' himself).

RUSH has been making great music since 1974. 24 gold & 14 platinum albums, and still yet to be inducted into the R&R H O F.

Awesome song, I especially love the bass.

I've always loved this song. Spinning riffs on bass and guitars falling in and out of the synths. For all the grousing about Rush's preoccupatio n w/ synths during the mid 80s and early 90s, when they did it well, it made for some real gems.
