Rush – Totem lyrics

Words by neil peart, music by geddy lee and alex lifeson

I've got twelve disciples and a buddha smile
The garden of allah, viking valhalla
A miracle once in a while

I've got a pantheon of animals in a pagan soul
Vishnu and gaia --- aztec and maya
Dance around my totem pole

I believe in what I see
I believe in what I hear
I believe that what I'm feeling
Changes how the world appears

Angels and demons dancing in my head
Lunatics and monsters underneath my bed
Media messiahs preying on my fears
Pop culture prophets playing in my ears

I've got celestial mechanics
To synchronize my stars
Seasonal migrations --- daily variations
World of the unlikely and bizarre

I've got idols and icons, unspoken holy vows
Thoughts to keep well-hidden ---
Sacred and forbidden
Free to browse among the holy cows

That's why I believe

Angels and demons inside of me
Saviors and satans all around me

Sweet chariot, swing low, coming for me
