Canadian rock trio
The Canadian rock group Rush came together in Toronto, Canada in 1968. Its members are Geddy Lee, Alex Lifeson and Neil Peart. Rush’s music style has changed from bluesy hard rock in more progressive rock and then back to a harder style by the 1990s. The group has sold more than 25 million albums in the U.S. and worldwide sales are thought to be well above 40 million. Rush has received seven Grammy Award nods but no awards. The band has 24 gold records and three that went multi-platinum. Their most recent studio album is 2012’s Clockwork Angels.
I can see that this odd man that is introduced in the first line is indeed a drug dealer.. It could be anyone that offers majestic experiences (Ok, it could be an agent for that matter!) a person who promises the earth and the sky.... However I shall stick with my first opinion, that is about buying drugs :)
So many decades before Rush released a song about the basic mechanisms of society pleading that you ought to expend time and efford in other to claim something of value in return, that all can't be provided to you without any cost... So many artists still making songs about that after all these years the lessons wasn't learned....
"I told you so" in a slightly more intellectual way. It goes a little deeper, it's the connection, the network behind your past experiences and your way of decision making, with having someone close to you waving his finger in your face when you make fatal mistakes..
