"Freewill" (Sometimes written as "Free Will") is the second track on progressive rock band Rush's 1980 album Permanent Waves. It is written by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson with lyrics by Neil Peart.

    Full of the high bow lyrics and hard driving soundscapes Rush is known for, this rocker debuted live in 1979 and it has remained a fan favorite ever since. While its parent album saw the trio move towards more radio-ready songs, “Freewill” proved they were still musically innovative. At just over 5 minutes, it’s filled with Geddy Lee’s trebly bass lines, Neil Peart’s complex drum fills, and a shredding guitar solo from Alex Lifeson that could give Eddie Van Halen a run for his money. -- watchmojo
