"I Think I'm Going Bald" as written by and Geddy Lee Weinrib Neil Peart....
I looked in the mirror today;
my eyes just didn't seem so bright.
I've lost a few more hairs.
I think I'm going bald,
I think I'm going bald.

Seems like only yesterday
We would sit and talk of dreams all night,
Dreams of youth and simple truths.
Now we're all so involved,
So involved with life.

I walk down vanity fair,
Memory lane ev'rywhere
Wall Stree shuffles there,
Dressed in flowing hair.

Once we loved the flowers,
Now we ask the price of the land.
Once we would take water,
But now it must be wine.
Now we've been and now we've seen
What price peace of mind.
Take a piece of my mind.

My life is slipping away.
I'm aging every day.
But even when I'm grey,
I'll still be grey my way.

    General Commentit's all about memories of the past and growing old, but done with some customary humor.

    General Commentthis song was makin fun of alex lifeson. in the early 70s he always thought he was losing his hair(even though he wasnt) and it was also written while they were on tour with kiss (who had a song called goin blind-but geddy lee thought it was i think im going blind)

    General CommentThis means to me personally that life is too fast. So I think I must live my life before I have to be on my death bed. Those say Caress Of Steel is horrible but I think it is one of the worst albums they have but it is still good music.

    General Commentwell this song DID become relevant because Alex Lifeson does have a bit of a bald spot now! but yea the meaning about getting old is pretty obvious!

    General CommentIt's about getting older, and how as you age you lose the youthful sense of wonder and curiousity you had.

    General CommentI love Rush, but this song...very disappointing, along with the whole Caress Of Steel album, really. Bastille Day is okay off that album, but aside from that, their worst album by far. They forgot their roots and got lazy. Thankfully, they made a triumphant come back with 2112 and got back on the track of meaningful lyrics and well planned, long thought out arrangements.
