"Turn The Page" as written by and Geddy Lee Weinrib Neil Peart....
Nothing can survive in a vacuum
No one can exists all alone
We pretend things only happen to strangers
We've all got problems of our own

It's enough to learn
To share our pleasures
We can't sooth pain with sympathy
All that we can do is be reminded
We shake our heads at the tragedy

Every day we're standing
In a time capsule
Racing down a river from the past
Every day we're standing
In a wind tunnel
Facing down the future coming fast

It's just the age
It's just a stage
We disengage
We turn the page

Looking at
The long-range forecast
Catching all the names in the news
Checking out
The state of the nation
Learning the environmental blues

Truth is after all a moving target
Hairs to split,
And pieces that don't fit
How can anybody be enlightened
Truth is after all so poorly lit

    My InterpretationI think this song is about everyday life and how we have to move on. For example the song says “Every day we are standing in a time capsule” which would represent our day, or maybe it is all the bad things or tragedys that happened to us or others that we should let go of, or things that we can not fix. So we need to let go of them, or disengage and turn the page. Further more is says that we are Stanton in a wind tunnel, this could represent us getting hit will all this bad news, and if we don’t let go of some of it we will fall.
