these typical casual listeners... by bigger half it's your fault that music is "dead". go right to your filthy and stupid temple of syrinx, forget this place and this band.

What a song!

I am a Shoegazing Zen Quaker Sufi Mystic Polymath seeking enlightenment in B# and everything RUSH does is AWESOME!!!! Can you B#. Be openminded. RUSH is AWESOME and Freewill is one of Rush's best. To each their own.

This is just a song guys. They're not preaching. Hold on to your beliefs, whatever they are, and enjoy this great song for what it is: a song.

just because your religious does that stop you from having a mind of your own or are you to easy to brain wash.
11 Feb 2013, 11:58am
@enzo5: they've got at least one song like this on every album so you knew what you were getting into.

Speaking as a Rush fan with strong spiritual beliefs (Yes, we do exist) I don't exactly feel alienated. I still love Rush. I justr usually skip songs like this and Freewill. My faith can survivie someone else's atheism. And let;s face it, the man's been through hell. I'm sure it's hard to believe much after all he's been through.

A dark and really great song!

Not only is he a total prick, but he is deliberately alienating any of his fans who happen to be religious. This is just offensive and ignorant.

"The price of what we're winning Is the same as what we've lost" Wow...those are some DARK lyrics, Neil! Don't even get me started with the watchmaker stuff...that guy is a total prick.

I think the intro to this and the whole song BU2B2 have some type of ties to one another...
13 Jun 2012, 2:19am
Not sure how I feel about the addition of that little intro on the album version. Mind you, I've only heard it once so far, but I'm not sure what it adds to the overall song. I can't wait to hear BU2B2 though.
10 Jun 2012, 7:59pm
amazing song with really deep lyrics, as usual
9 Jun 2012, 12:30pm
I don't like that intro much. It's totally pointless.
7 Jun 2012, 6:14pm
I love the acoustic intro, this song fuckin rocks!
21 Apr 2012, 6:57pm
This single version is 4:21, but apparently the album version is 5:10. Guess we'll see what it sounds like when [album artist=Rush]Clockwork Angels[/album] comes out!
7 Apr 2012, 12:31am
Quite good :D
18 Dec 2011, 5:24pm
Song rules, love the lyrics.
15 Nov 2011, 9:01pm
I so hope the new album will be as totally awesome as those two tracks (Caravan & BU2B). It's the best stuff they've made in years!
17 Aug 2011, 2:39pm
I'm addicted to that Rush!
13 May 2011, 10:35am
INSANELY good live. I knew it was a great song and I was looking forward to hearing it, but WOW!! Mind: blown.
13 May 2011, 6:46am
Okay, 50 weeks after release, I can safely say I was correct in saying this is indeed the best Rush song in decades. I'm dying a little inside each time I hear Clockwork Angels is being delayed, but I know that the end result will be completely worth it.
6 Mar 2011, 11:24am
Don't like it as much as Caravan, but it's still quite good. Very heavy for Rush. Clockwork Angels will probably be their heaviest album since Hemispheres or 2112.
31 Jul 2010, 3:05pm
Rush goes metal \m/
4 Jul 2010, 7:11am
So good live. Though I like Caravan better.

I might be the first detractor here. These tracks remind me too much of Vapor Trails except these don't seem to be mixed improperly like that album was; and that's more disturbing to me than a simple bad mix. It's just that simply the instruments themselves at times completely drown out Geddy Lee's voice, but I am thankful he doesn't resort to screaming or wailing in an attempt to get into a prominence battle with the instruments. That's what I dislike about heavy metal as a whole. Rush has experimented with heavy metal and IMO so far has done it a service by retaining rhythm and understandable vocals when the tracks themselves were mixed properly. Just wish they'd re-record Vapor Trails. The remixed Earthshine on Retrospective III wasn't enough. Perhaps these two tracks'll grow on me — especially when I'm able to get something in better quality than a stupid low bitrate mp3. Hopefully there'll be a disc release of this soonish so I could rip to lossless.

To be fair, I am a deep listener when it comes to Rush. I always search for those epic things in songs. For example, the synth in middletown dreams on 2 minutes, the intro in one little victory, or maybe the feeling in Geddys voice in A Passage To Bangkok when he sings "pulling into Katmandu". These to songs just brought Rush to a new level. Too good to be true!
19 Jun 2010, 5:18am
Very Rage Against the Machine-ish opening riff. I half expect Zack de la Rocha to come in. Excellent song.
11 Jun 2010, 9:07am
I would say this is the best Rush song in decades, but it's only been a week so it's a touch early to start saying stuff like that.
11 Jun 2010, 1:35am
fucking awesome! badass as hell!
6 Jun 2010, 10:44pm
Pretty heavy for a Rush song, still good though!
4 Jun 2010, 4:30am
Another epic piece from an epic band.
4 Jun 2010, 1:47am
IT Rocks all right, but the rhythm seems a tad commercial compared to Caravan. I would prefer to see a longer Epic version of that song but I like this.
3 Jun 2010, 5:30pm
The riff in this would not be out of place on a Mastodon album. Rush's biggest, heaviest, most utterly massive riff. If this is a sign of things to come, I'm in.
2 Jun 2010, 5:32pm
Fucking amazing!!!! Far better than most of Snakes & Arrows´ stuff
2 Jun 2010, 4:42pm
While our loving watchmaker loves us all to death.
1 Jun 2010, 7:17pm
The ending is just too awesome.
1 Jun 2010, 2:23pm
Heavy, heavy shit. I totally dig it :D
