The Universe divided
As the Heart and Mind collided,
With the people left unguided
For so many troubled years.
In a cloud of doubts and fears,
Their world was torn asunder into hollow Hemispheres.

Some fought themselves, some fought each other.
Most just followed one another,
Lost and aimless like their brothers,
For their hearts were so unclear,
And the truth could not appear.
Their spirits were divided into blinded Hemispheres.

Some who did not fight
Brought tales of old to light.
My Rocinante' sailed by night
On her final flight.
To the heart of Cygnus' fearsome force
We set our course.
Spiralled through that timeless space
To this immortal place.

    General CommentGreat movement on an underrated Rush piece. Of the 6 or 7 parts, this is my favorite, because of the weird way Geddy sings it, and I like the cool rhyme scheme. Finally some resolution to Cygnus X-1, we see our hero, the space traveler again, and learn that his fate was flying through a time/dimensional warp. Very cool!
