"High Water" as written by and Geddy Lee Weinrib Neil Peart....
When the waters rose
In the darkness
In the wake of the endless flood
It flowed into our memory
It flowed into our blood

When something broke the surface
Just to see the starry dome
We still feel that relation
When the water takes us home
In the flying spray of the ocean
The water takes you home

Springing from the weight
Of the mountains
Like the heart of the earth
Would burst
Flowing out from marble fountains
In the dreams of a desert thirst

Something swam through
The jungles
Where the mighty rivers roam
Something breaks the silence
When the water takes you home
I hear the wordless voices
When the water takes me home

Waves that crash on the shoreline
Torrents of tropical rain
Streaming down
Beyond our memory
Streaming down inside our veins

When something left the ocean
To crawl high above the foam
We still feel that elation
When the water takes us home
In a driving rain of redemption
The water takes me home

    General CommentAlso, it makes it clear that human life started in the water, and that even though we evolved and "broke the surface," we still are connected to the water in a primitive way.

    General CommentOutstanding guitar performance. No need for ultra shredding or flashy licks, just the right arpeggios, tacets and power chords on the right place. And a ethereal guitar solo according to the cryptic lyrics
