Με έναν περίεργο τρόπο αυτό το τραγούδι των Rush, συνδέεται με τα κείμενα του οικοδεσπότη. Το Subdivisions αναφέρεται στους παρίες, αυτούς που η κοινωνία αποβάλλει, ειδικά στους νέους… “Conform or be cast out”. Από το άλμπουμ τους Signals, 1982.

In an odd way, this song by Rush is connected to the hosts’s posts. Subdivisions is about people who are shunned, especially the young ones… “Conform or be cast out”. From their album Signals, 1982.

◼︎

Sprawling on the fringes of the city
In geometric order
An insulated border
In-between the bright lights
And the far, unlit unknown
Growing up, it all seems so one-sided
Opinions all provided
The future pre-decided
Detached and subdivided
In the mass-production zone
Nowhere is the dreamer
Or the misfit so alone
Subdivisions
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
Subdivisions
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth
Drawn like moths, we drift into the city
The timeless old attraction
Cruising for the action
Lit up like a firefly
Just to feel the living night
Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory
Of lighted streets on quiet nights
Subdivisions
In the high school halls
In the shopping malls
Conform or be cast out
Subdivisions
In the basement bars
In the backs of cars
Be cool or be cast out
Any escape might help to smooth
The unattractive truth
But the suburbs have no charms to soothe
The restless dreams of youth
