Rush - 'Losing It' (Official Visualizer)

The dancer slows her frantic pace
In pain and desperation,
Her aching limbs and downcast face
Aglow with perspiration

Stiff as wire, her lungs on fire,
With just the briefest pause -
The flooding through her memory,
The echoes of old applause.

She limps across the floor
And closes her bedroom door...

The writer stares with glassy eyes -
Defies the empty page,
His beard is white, his face is lined
And streaked with tears of rage.

Thirty years ago, how the words would flow
With passion and precision,
But now his mind is dark and dulled
By sickness and indecision

And he stares out the kitchen door
Where the sun will rise no more...

Some are born to move the world -
To live their fantasies
But most of us just dream about
The things we’d like to be

Sadder still to watch it die
Than never to have known it
For you — the blind who once could see -
The bell tolls for thee...

Rush - 'Signals'
Το τραγούδι "Losing It" το γνωρίσαμε μέσα από το ένατο full length album των Rush, "Signals" (το προτελευταίο μουσικό κομμάτι της δεύτερης πλευράς του βινυλίου), που κυκλοφόρησε το φθινόπωρο του 1982, ενώ είχε κυκλοφορήσει και αυτόνομα, ως single, έναν μήνα νωρίτερα (με την "ζωντανή" εκτέλεση του τραγουδιού "Vital Signs" στην δεύτερη πλευρα΄του βινυλίου). Την μουσική "υπογράφουν" ο Geddy Lee και ο Alex Lifeson, ενώ οι στίχοι ανήκουν στον Neil Peart.

About "Signals": «Signals is the band’s ninth studio album, released in 1982. It was the follow-up to the (what would become) seminal Moving Pictures album. Stylistically, the album was a continuation of Rush’s foray into the technology-oriented 1980s through increased use of electronic instrumentation such as keyboards, sequencers, and electric violin.

The songs got shorter too. In fact, “New World Man” clocked in at a swift 3:42–it was the last and quickest-composed song on the album, written primarily to even out the lengths of the two sides of the cassette version.

The opening track, “Subdivisions,” is a staple of many of the band’s tours since its recording. Signals was the band’s last collaboration with producer Terry Brown, who had co-produced every Rush album since 1975’s Fly by Night, and had engineered the eponymous first album in 1974.»
