"Scars" as written by and Geddy Lee Weinrib Neil Peart....
I've stood upon my mountaintop
And shouted at the sky
Walked above the pavement
With my sense amplified
I get this feeling

All my nerves are naked wires
Tender to the touch
Sometimes super-sensitive
But who can care too much?
I get this feeling

Scars of pleasure
Scars of pain
Atmospheric changes
Make them sensitive again

Each emotional injury
Leaves behind its mark
Sometimes they come tumbling out
Like shadows in the dark
I get this feeling

When I think about all I have seen
And all I'll never see
When I think about the people
Who have opened up to me
I get this feeling

Snow falls deep around my house
And holds the winter light
I've heard the lions hunting
In the Serengeti night
I get this feeling

Forests turned to factories
And river, sea, and sky
Hungry child in the desert
And the flies that cloud her eyes
I get this feeling

Pleasure leaves a fingerprint
As surely as mortal pain
In memories they resonate
And echo back again

    General CommentDefinitely a great track. I love those background synthesizers with the strong beat of the drums and percussive bass line.... I can imagine this music video...seeing the band walking out of their dressing room with Geddy wearing sunglasses all walking toward the state in a triangle, with that serious-looking face that shows "we mean business" - something you might see in a crime drama flick. The shot being in black and white, and in slow motion..

    Wonderful song - I just think the chorus doesn't fit the rest of the song. But still - magnificent!
