Rush – The Anarchist lyrics

Will there be world enough and time for me to sing that song?
A voice so silent for so long
For all the years I had to get along,
They told me I was wrong
I never wanted to belong-I was so strong!

[Chorus]
I lack their smiles and their diamonds;
I lack their happiness and love.
I envy them for all those things,
I never got my fair share of.

The lenses inside of me that paint the world black,
The pools of poison, the scarlet mist that spill over into rage,

The things I've always been denied
An early promise that somehow died
A missing part of me that grows around me like a cage,
In all your science of the mind, seeking blind through flesh and bone
Find the blood inside this stone
What I know, I've never shown what I feel; I've always known
I plan my vengeance on my own - and I was always alone
I lack their smiles and their diamonds;
I lack their happiness and love.
I envy them for all those things,
I never got my fair share of.

The lenses inside of me that paint the world black,
The pools of poison, the scarlet mist that spilled over into rage,
The things I've always been denied
An early promise that somehow died
A missing part of me that grows around me like a cage,

[Finale]
Oh, they tried to get me
Oh, they'll never forget

    Tricked by circumstances. This boy like dagny taggert can't make or help the world be what it could possibly be. The best world ever. The world is actually an anarchist against a passionate and reasonable being like neil. The promise and hope of the american dream is dead. The world (looters and moochers) will not allow the best of what's inside of us to come into being. This "missing part of me" is not really missing. It's a cage. A mulligan's valley or galt's gulch if you will.
