Rush - "Jacob's Ladder" (audio)

The clouds prepare for battle
In the dark and brooding silence.
Bruised and sullen stormclouds
Have the light of day obscured.

Looming low and ominous
In twilight premature

Thunderheads are rumbling
In a distant overture...

All at once, the clouds are parted.
Light streams down in bright unbroken beams...
Follow men's eyes as they look to the skies.
The shifting shafts of shining weave the fabric of their dreams...


Ο δίσκος των Rush "Permanent Waves"
Το "Jacob's Ladder" είναι ένα από τα ωραιότερα τραγούδια στο ευρύτερο φάσμα της "σκληρής" μουσικής. Το πρωτακούσαμε στον δίσκο των (υπέρτατων θεών) Rush "Permanent Waves" που κυκλοφόρησε τον Ιανουάριο του 1980 (το τελευταίο κομμάτι της πρώτης πλευράς για όσους έχουν το βινύλιο). Ο (drummer και στιχουργός των Rush) Neil Peart είχε πει για το τραγούδι:

«Whereas most of the ideas we were dealing with this time were on the lesser side, and in some cases, like in "Jacobs Ladder", looked at as a cinematic idea. We created all the music first to summon up an image - the effect of Jacob's Ladder - and paint the picture, with the lyrics added, just as a sort of little detail, later, to make it more descriptive.»
