Yes. The most under-rated band in Canadian history - Rush. Another meaningful one they wrote, about the impending artistic and spiritual death of modern man, was "Subdivisions".
Perhaps it's a little outdated now, but when I listen to their songs, I am struck by the prophetic quality of their lyrics, and that "New World Man" song, I swear that I have not been patterning myself or my persona here based on that song, but there it is, a song about me, or anyone who's trying to perform The Great Work in the midst of our crazy world. Sent chills up and down my spine listening to it again.
Nice thread! S&F

...there is sometimes a bit of magic in creativity but when something comes easy or seems to "flow", its not due to an outside entity - its just me...
...i picked up a mandolin one day and became proficient in three months - no lessons, never played a string instrument before, couldnt read music or tabulature - but - i was determined and i dont mind working hard (when its my choice, lol)... thats the trick at being successful in whatever you choose to do...

Childish strokes take on air of prophecy

It would seem that the collective minds of the world's intelligence community never imagined that armed terrorists would fly airplanes into the World Trade Center.
Despite all the money and energy we have poured into the CIA and other agencies, the United States was caught napping on the morning of Sept. 11.
Perhaps the CIA should have looked in Quincy, a small town in the Florida Panhandle about 30 miles east of Tallahassee.
There on a wall-sized, brightly colored mural painted about six years ago, a group of school children imagined the unthinkable.
The twin towers stand out, with windows lighted up and faces peering from them. Some of the windows seem to be filled with fire, and people are shown jumping from the building. The Empire State Building appears in the background, and a large jet airplane flies directly at the upper floors of the trade center.
These days it gets eerie looks from those who notice the similarity between the mural and actual events. The mural sits outside a building that houses the Gadsden County Sheriff's Department and the library.

Seeing crap like this on the front page is why I rarely come to this site. I thought this site was about finding truth, not blinding people with supernatural bs like this.
"Hey guys, I just found a cure for cancer that the government has been hiding for years!" gets one star.
Crap like this gets the front page, that's awesome.
