The pass Lyrics

The pass by Rush  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The pass Proud swagger out of the schoolyard
Waiting for the world's applause
Rebel without a conscience
Martyr without a cause.

Static on your frequency
Electrical storm in your veins
Raging an unreachable glory
Straining at invisible chains.

And now you're trembling on a rocky ledge
Staring down into a heatless sea
Can't face life on a razor's edge
Nothing's what you thought it would be.

All of us get lost in the darkness
Dreamers learn to steer by the stars
All of us do time in the gutter
Dreamers turn to look at the cars.

Turn around and turn around and turn around
Turn around and walk the razors edge
Don't turn your back
And slam the door on me.

It's not as if this barricade
Blocks the only road
It's not as if you're all alone
In wanting to explode.

Someone set a bad example
Made surrender seem all right
The act of a noble warrior
Who lost the will to fight.

And now you're trembling on a rocky ledge
Staring down into a heartless sea
Done with life on a razors edge
Nothing's what you thought it would be.

No hero in your tragedy
No daring in your escape
No salutes for your surrender
Nothing noble in your fate
Christ, what have you done?

All of us get lost in the darkness
Dreamers learn to steer by the stars
All of us do time in the gutter
Dreamers turn to look at the cars.

Turn around and turn around and turn around
Turn around and walk the razors edge
Don't turn your back
And slam the door on me.
