RUSH - Subdivisions

rate me

Words by neil peart, music by geddy lee and alex lifeson<br><br>Sprawling on the fringes of the city<br>In geometric order<br>An insulated border<br>In between the bright lights<br>And the far unlit unknown<br><br>Growing up it all seems so one-sided<br>Opinions all provided<br>The future pre-decided<br>Detached and subdivided<br>In the mass production zone<br><br>Nowhere is the dreamer<br>Or the misfit so alone<br><br>Subdivisions ---<br>In the high school halls<br>In the shopping malls<br>Conform or be cast out<br>Subdivisions ---<br>In the basement bars<br>In the backs of cars<br>Be cool or be cast out<br>Any escape might help to smooth<br>The unattractive truth<br>But the suburbs have no charms to soothe<br>The restless dreams of youth<br><br>Drawn like moths we drift into the city<br>The timeless old attraction<br>Cruising for the action<br>Lit up like a firefly<br>Just to feel the living night<br><br>Some will sell their dreams for small desires<br>Or lose the race to rats<br>Get caught in ticking traps<br>And start to dream of somewhere<br>To relax their restless flight<br><br>Somewhere out of a memory<br>Of lighted streets on quiet nights...
