Rush – Distant Early Warning lyrics

An I'll wind comes arising
Across the cities of the plain
There's no swimming in the heavy water
No singing in the acid rain
Red alert
Red alert


It's so hard to stay together
Passing through revolving doors

We need someone to talk to
And someone to sweep the floors
Incomplete
Incomplete

The world weighs on my shoulders
But what am I to do?
You sometimes drive me crazy
But I worry about you

I know it makes no difference
To what you're going through
But I see the tip of the iceberg
And I worry about you...

Cruising under your radar
Watching from satellites
Take a page from the red book
Keep them in your sights
Red alert
Red alert

Left and rights of passage
Black and whites of youth
Who can face the knowledge
That the truth is not the truth?
Obsolete
Absolute


The world weighs on my shoulders
But what am I to do?
You sometimes drive me crazy
But I worry about you

I know it makes no difference
To what you're going through
But I see the tip of the iceberg
And I worry about you

The world weighs on my shoulders
But what am I to do?
You sometimes drive me crazy
But I worry about you

I know it makes no difference
To what you're going through
But I see the tip of the iceberg
And I worry about you

Absalom
Absalom
Absalom

    I feel that the writer was realizing that everybody is so busy in their everyday lives that they totally miss what affect we have on our Planet. So many sensors are in place to monitor the health of our planet but no one is paying attention. There are nut jobs and big business clouding the truth, but the truth remains "You are killing our planet" but no one pays attention. They are too busy with life. You have been warned, you have been warned, you have been warned! That is my take on the Absalom.
