Rush – The Wreckers lyrics

The breakers roar
On an unseen shore
In the teeth of a hurricane
Oh, we struggle in vain

A hellish night
A ghostly light
Appears through the driving rain
Salvation in a human chain

All I know is that sometimes you have to be wary
Of a miracle too good to be true
All I know is that sometimes the truth is contrary
Everything in life you thought you knew
All I know is that sometimes you have to be wary
'Cause sometimes the target is you

Driven to ground
With a helpful sound
Drowned by the cheer from the shore
Oh, we wonder what for

The people swarm
Through the darkening storm
Gather everything they can score
'Til their backs won't bear any more

All I know is that sometimes you have to be wary
Of a miracle too good to be true
All I know is that sometimes the truth is contrary
Everything in life you thought you knew
All I know is that sometimes you have to be wary
Of a miracle too good to be true
All I know is that sometimes the truth is contrary
'Cause sometimes the target is you

    The wreckers is a reference to the coast of cornwall, england. During bad storms, people would traditionally light fires and operate spotlights on the coast as a means to bring ships to safety. The wreckers, however, lit the fires in order to draw in ships into hazardous areas with breaker reefs in the area. After the ship wrecked, they would kill the people on the ship and plunder the material onboard. Some miracles are too good to be true and this example of inhumanity is a good illustration.
