Remarks:

Song is in E major, and in 4/4 except where noted.

The trick to riff A (and riff H), according to Alex Lifeson in a recent
guitar magazine interview, is to keep your middle finger rooted on the 3rd
fret of the B string, never lifting it off until it's time to change to
next riff.  While keeping that finger down, use the other three fingers to
execute the pulloffs on the E string.

I'll add that, done that way, you can play the riff with steady downstrokes
on the B and E strings.  I can attest that this is much, much easier than
my busy-ass alternate-picking, B-string-hammering method.  Now maybe I'll
be able to get that riff up to speed.  :)

Arranged for one guitar; this transcription is a meld of the studio
and live performance.  Comments welcome.

Lyrics:

The clouds prepare for battle
In the dark and brooding silence.
Bruised and sullen stormclouds
Have the light of day obscured.
Looming low and ominous
In twilight premature
Thunderheads are rumbling
In a distant overture...

Bridge/Solo

Synth Section

All at once, the clouds are parted.
Light streams down in bright unbroken beams...

Follow men's eyes as they look to the skies.
The shifting shafts of shining weave the fabric of their dreams.

Tablature Contributors:
This transcription was created by C. D. Bruce (charlesdbruce@hotmail.com)
in the format (described below).  It was previously transcribed by Tony
Kennedy (tonykennedy@entermail.net).  Other contributions were made by
Branden Robinson (branden@deadbeast.net), Rich Soto

Disclaimer:
This tablature represents how the song is played as closely as reasonably
achievable to the *studio* recording.  Alex Lifeson may have played it
slightly differently.


Tabulature Explanation:
| = Bar line
~ = Vibrato or held note
x = Percussive note with no pitch; muted note
. = Staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it
h = Hammer
p = Pull
s = Slide (used when \ or / don't fit)
^ = Bend string up to indicated pitch/fret shown in parenthesis ()
r = Release bend to indicated string/fret
t = Fret board tap (not many of these with Rush)
/ = Slide up
\ = Slide down
<5> = Natural harmonic (lightly touch the string at fret indicated)
[5] = Artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)
!5! = "Harp" harmonic - use the index of the picking hand to locate the
      "node" 12 frets above the indicated note and pluck the string with
      the pick or the side of thumb.  This creates a harmonic one octave
      higher than the fretted note.
o =\ repeat signs
o =/
D.C. = "Da capo" - means "from the head", when you see these initials you
       go back to the beginning of the piece of music.
D.S. = "Dal segno" - means "from the sign", go back in the tabulature
       only as far as the (%) sign.
Coda = A passage at the end of a movement or composition that brings
       it to a formal close.
Al Coda = means "to the tail", tells you that you must go to the end
          section which starts with the Coda sign (+).
R.F. = Repeat and fade
rit. = "Ritardando" - Gradually slowing in tempo; retarding.


Other pertinent information:
  Tuning:  Standard [EADGBe].
  Key signature:
  Effects:  Overdrive or Distortion, Chorus, Possibly a Maestro Parametric
  Filter

Performance Note:
  The trick to the arpeggiated part below is to finger the chords
  as follows (fingers:  i=index, m=middle, r=ring, l=little):

       0      A/G            0      D/F#             2    E/G#
     e |---|---|---|---|     |---|---|---|---|     0---|---|---|---|
     B |---|(O-|---|---|i    |---|---|-O-|---|l    0---|---|---|-O-|l
     G |---|(O-|---|---|i    |---|-O-|---|---|r    |---|---|-O-|---|r
     D |---|(O-|---|---|i    0---|---|---|---|     |-O-|---|---|---|i
     A |---|---|-X-|---|     |---|-X-|---|---|     |---|---|-X-|---|
     E |---|---|-O-|---|m    |---|-O-|---|---|m    |---|---|-O-|---|m

  Using the same finger on the bass note for each chord (middle finger)
  allows you to slide it as indicated below.  This gives it the
  "continuous" sound needed.

  A/G               D/F#              E/G#              A/G

Note:
   Below are a couple methods of playing the Nashville Tuned part on a
   guitar in standard tuning to get the higher notes.

   Method 1:
   Bar you index finger at the 7th fret.  The note on the B string 10th
   fret is fretted with you little finger and the note on the e string
   8th fret is fretted with you middle finger.
                        D

   fret is fretted with you little finger and the note on the e string
   8th fret is fretted with you middle finger.

Lyrics:

1st Verse

We are secrets to each other
Each one's life a novel
No-one else has read.
Even joined in bonds of love,
We're linked to one another
By such slender threads.

2nd Verse

We are planets to each other,
Drifting in our orbits
To a brief eclipse.
Each of us a world apart,
Alone and yet together,
Like two passing ships.

Chorus:

Just between us,
I think it's time for us to recognize
The differences we sometimes fear to show.
Just between us,
I think it's time for us to realize,
The spaces in between
Leave room for you and I to grow.

3rd Verse

We are strangers to each other,
Full of sliding panels,
An illusion show.
Acting well-rehearsed routines
Or playing from the heart?
It's hard for one to know.

Chorus

Bridge

Last Verse

We are islands to each other,
Building hopeful bridges
On a troubled sea.
Some are burned or swept away,
Some we would not choose,
But we're not always free.

Tablature Contributors:
This transcription was created by C. D. Bruce (charlesdbruce@hotmail.com)
in the format described below.  It was previously transcribed by Tony
Kennedy (tonykennedy@entermail.net).


Disclaimer:
This tablature represents how the song is played as closely as reasonably
achievable to the *studio* recording.  Alex Lifeson may have played it
slightly differently.


Tabulature Explanation:
| = Bar line
~ = Vibrato or held note
x = Percussive note with no pitch; muted note
. = Staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it
h = Hammer
p = Pull
s = Slide (used when \ or / don't fit)
^ = Bend string up to indicated pitch/fret shown in parenthesis ()
r = Release bend to indicated string/fret
t = Fret board tap (not many of these with Rush)
/ = Slide up
\ = Slide down
<5> = Natural harmonic (lightly touch the string at fret indicated)
[5] = Artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)
!5! = "Harp" harmonic - use the index of the picking hand to locate the
      "node" 12 frets above the indicated note and pluck the string with
      the pick or the side of thumb.  This creates a harmonic one octave
      higher than the fretted note.
o =\ repeat signs
o =/
D.C. = "Da capo" - means "from the head", when you see these initials you '
       go back to the beginning of the piece of music.
D.S. = "Dal segno" - means "from the sign", go back in the tabulature
       only as far as the (%) sign.
Coda = A passage at the end of a movement or composition that brings
       it to a formal close.
Al Coda = means "to the tail", tells you that you must go to the end
          section which starts with the Coda sign (+).
R.F. = Repeat and fade
rit. = "Ritardando" - Gradually slowing in tempo; retarding.

Transcription by Paul Bryant (pbryant@hawk.cs.ukans.edu)

Song begins in 4/4

LEGEND:    \  means slide down the neck toward headstock
           !  means play staccato

NOTE:  Before you get your hopes up, alas, I did not transcribe the solos.
       Sorry, I'm just not fast enough.  The rest is pretty accurate,
       though, and a pleasure to play even without the solos.
