RUSH - Natural Science Lyrics

Words by neil peart, music by geddy lee and alex lifesonI. tide poolsWhen the ebbing tide retreatsAlong the rocky shorelineIt leaves a trail of tidal poolsIn a short-lived galaxyEach microcosmic planetA complete societyA simple kind mirrorTo reflect upon our ownAll the busy little creaturesChasing out their destiniesLiving in their poolsThey soon forget about the sea...Wheels within wheelsIn a spiral arrayA pattern so grandAnd complexTime after timeWe lose sight of the wayOur causes can't seeTheir effectsIi. hyperspaceA quantum leap forwardIn time and in spaceThe universe learned to expandThe mess and the magicTriumphant and tragicA mechanized world, out of handComputerized clinicFor superior cynicsWho dance to a synthetic bandIn their own imageTheir world is fashioned ---No wonder they don't understandWheels within wheelsIn a spiral arrayA pattern so grandAnd complexTime after timeWe lose sight of the wayOur causes can't seeTheir effectsIii. permanent wavesScience, like natureMust also be tamedWith a view towards it's preservationGiven the sameState of integrityIt will surely serve us wellArt as expression ---Not as market campaignsWill still capture our imaginationsGiven the sameState of integrityIt will surely help us alongThe most endangered species ---The honest manWill still survive annihilationForming a world ---State of integritySensitive, open, and strongWave after waveWill flow with the tideAnd bury the world as it doesTide after tideWill flow and recedeLeaving life to go onAs it was...
