The snakes and arrows a child is heir to
Are enough to leave a thousand cuts
We build our defenses, a place of safety
And leave the darker places unexplored

  • sounds like a classic
  • Perfection.
  • An excellent track from an excellent band. Hail Rush. May their reign continue with futher success. THIS is the way to be a band with creative longevity.
  • A favorite off of Snakes and Arrows.
  • Great song, love it on the Snakes and Arrows DVD. Can't wait to see them in London in May! :D
  • The snakes and arrows a child is heir to are enough to leave a thousand cuts! Everytime a drive my car I always sing along as loud as I can on that part. Gives me goosebumps every time.
  • Anyone else hears the "Anesthetize" riff on 3:50? funny how both songs came out on the same year and both of them had Alex Lifeson playing in them.

  • The best song from Snakes & Arrows, IMHO!
  • "No one gets to their heaven without a fight" - what a brilliant line! Trust Rush to come up with a total package to wrap around this line. Best track!
