ALIEN SHORE Lyrics

Artist: Rush
Album: Counterparts

Words by Neil Peart, Music by Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson

You and I, we are strangers by one chromosome
Slave to the hormone, body and soul
In a struggle to be happy and free
Swimming in a primitive sea

You and I, we must dive below the surface
A world of red neon, and ultramarine
Shining bridges on the ocean floor
Reaching to the alien shore

For you and me --- Sex is not a competition
For you and me --- Sex is not a job description
For you and me --- We agree

You and I, we are pressed into these solitudes
Color and culture, language and race
Just variations on a theme
Islands in a much larger stream

For you and me --- Race is not a competition
For you and me --- Race is not a definition
For you and me --- We agree

Reaching for the alien shore

You and I, we reject these narrow attitudes
We add to each other, like a coral reef
Building bridges on the ocean floor
Reaching for the alien shore

For you and me --- We hold these truths to be self-evident
For you and me --- We'd elect each other president
For you and me --- We might agree
But that's just us

Reaching for the alien shore
