Lyric discussion by RUSHMAN 

The meaning of this song shares many common themes with many of Peart's other lyrics. Basically, it's about chasing a dream, ignoring naysayers and excuses; failure is not an option.

"What kind of difference can one person make" is the naysayer trying to dissuade the dreamer from his course. The dreamer responds "Cut to the chase!" Similar to the themes and message of the song "Show Don't Tell."
