Lyrics

Ten score years ago
Defeat the kingly foe
A wondrous dream came into being
Tame the trackless waste
No virgin land left chaste
All shining eyes but never seeing

 Beneath the noble bird
 Between the proudest words
 Behind the beauty cracks appear

 Once with hands held high
 They sang out to the sky
 Why do their shadows bow in fear

Watch the cities rise
Another ship arrives
Earth's melting pot, and ever growing
Fantastic Dreams come true
Inventing something new
The greatest minds, but never knowing

 Beneath the noble bird
 Between the proudest words
 Behind the beauty cracks appear

 Once with hands held high
 They sang out to the sky
 Why do their shadows bow in fear

Solo

The guns replace the plow
Facades are tarnished now
The principles have been betrayed
The dreams gone stale
But still let hope prevail
History's debt won't be repaid

 Beneath the noble bird
 Between the proudest words
 Behind the beauty cracks appear

 Once with hands held high
 They sang out to the sky
 Why do their shadows bow in fear

Tablature Explanation:
(+) = This symbol stands for "Coda". A passage at the end of a movement
      or composition that brings it to a formal close.
AC  = "Al coda" - means "to the tail", tells you that you must go
      to the end section which starts with the Coda sign (+).
DC  = "Da capo" - means "from the head", when you see these initials
      you go back to the beginning of the piece of music.
DS  = "Dal segno" - means "from the sign", go back in the tabulature
      only as far as the (%) sign.
(.) = Fermata, the prolongation of a tone, chord, or rest beyond
      its indicated time value.
RF  = repeat and fade
Rit = "Ritardando" - Gradually slowing in tempo; retarding.
~   = vibrato
.   = staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it
^   = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret shown in parenthesis ()
h   = hammer
p   = pull
r   = release bend (string/fret may be indicated)
s   = slide (used when back slash "" or forward slash "/" don't fit)
t   = fret board tap (not many of these with Rush)
u   = unison bend, the lower note is bent to achieve unison with the
      higher note
x   = percussive note with no pitch or a muted note
|   = bar separating measures
/   = slide up the neck towards the bridge
\   = slide down the neck towards the nut
x/  = pick slide up
x\  = pick slide down
<5> = natural harmonic (lightly touch the string above the fret
      indicated)
[5] = artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)
o   =\ repeat sign
o   =/
LT  = "Lifeson Tuning" or Modified Nashville Tuning.  When the low E, A,
      and D strings (usually on a 6 string acoustic) are replaced with
      lighter gauge strings and tuned one octave higher than normal
      (different from Nashville tuning which would also include the G
      string being tuned one octave higher).


Other pertinent information:
  Tempo:  1/4 note = 221
  Tuning:  Standard [EADGBe].
  Key signature:  D
  Effects:  Overdrive/Distortion, delay

Effects/Misc Line:  Provides effects information, number of repeats, etc.

Chord Line:  Provides the chord name for the chords used in the
             tab below.

Note Duration Line:  Provides the "value" of each note, e.g., whole,
                     half, quarter, etc.

Note Duration Designator Table:
  w = Whole note                   h = Half note
  q = Quarter note                 H = Dotted half note
  Q = Dotted Quarter note          s = Sixteenth note
  e = Eighth note                  S = Dotted sixteenth note
  E = Dotted eighth note           + = Duration exceeds 2 measures
  t = Thirty-second note
  T = Dotted thirty-second note

  Notes with two designations immediately adjacent to each other
  have durations added (e.g., he = half note + eigth note, etc.)

String lines:  Represent the strings of a guitar.  The tab is laid
               out as if you placed a right handed guitar on your
               lap, string side up.  A vertical line character "|"
               represents a bar between measures.  A dash "-" represents
               each string.  The numbers indicate which fret should
               be fingered to sound the note.  The first space after
               every bar is a blank space that is almost never used.
               Quarter notes are separated by 3 dashes, eighth notes
               are separated by 1 dash.  In an effort to make the
               ASCII tab look as much like tab in a music book, the
               notes are spaced out as accurately as possible.  In the
               event the notes will not fit into the format shown above,
               the tab may be expanded (usually only required for
               solos).
