"Chain Lightning" Presto 1989 "...the whole idea of the song was response and how people respond to things...a lot of the thrust of that song is how things are transferred, like chain lightning or enthusiasm or energy or love are things that are contagious, and if someone feels them, they are easily transferable to another person,...‘Reflected in another pair of eyes’ is the idea that it's a wonderful thing already,...but if there's someone else there with you to share it, then it multiplies, you know, it becomes exponentially a bigger experience..." ~ Neil Peart[70]

And music is an easy one, but it translates to so many other parts of life where it's a given that, for instance, the sense of smell is one of the strongest forces in your memory, where a given smell will suddenly conjure up a whole time of your life, and again, it triggers another scar, it triggers another psychological imprint that was left by a pleasurable thing..." ~ Neil Peart[73]

"Neurotica" Roll the Bones 1991 "Some people can't deal with the world as it is, or themselves as they are, and feel powerless to change things—so they get all crazy. They waste away their lives in delusions, paranoia, aimless rage, and neuroses, and in the process they often make those around them miserable, too.

"Cold Fire" Counterparts 1993 "I had been inspired, I think, by a Paul Simon song, where I wanted to couch song lyrics in conversation—he said, she said, and all that. Simon has a song, maybe on Rhythm of the Saints, where it's in conversation." ~ Neil Peart[95]
"Everyday Glory" Counterparts 1993 "This song ended up being an analog-tape mix. For the last few years I’ve mixed only to digital, because I figured it was just a better tape recorder. But certain songs have a heavier midrange content, and on playback the analog recorder softens the midrange a bit, giving it a more likable sound." ~ Geddy Lee[96]
"Test for Echo" Test for Echo 1996 Co-written by Pye Dubois.[97] "The lyrics give a video-view of this wacky world of ours and offers this tacit response: ‘Excuse me, does anybody else think this is weird? Am I weird?’ While the answer to those questions might be ‘Yes!’ it's good to know that you're not the only one, that you're not alone." ~ Neil Peart[97]
"Driven" Test for Echo 1996 "...is just from a bass player's point of view. I wrote that song with three tracks of bass. I brought it to Alex and said, ‘Here's the song; I did three tracks of bass, but I just did that to fill in for the guitar,’ and he said, ‘Let's keep it with the three basses.’ So, I said, ‘I love you.'" ~ Geddy Lee[98]
"Half the World" Test for Echo 1996 "...is one of our finest moments as songwriters as far as writing a concise song without being wimpy or syrupy. It's got a little bit of everything: nice melody, and yet it’s still aggressive. It’s hard for us to write that kind of song, really. You’d have to go back to ‘Closer to the Heart’ to find an example of that."[99]
"The Color of Right" Test for Echo 1996 Inspired by the legal term: colour of right.[100]
"Time and Motion" Test for Echo 1996 Inspire by music artists Soundgarden and Smashing Pumpkins.[101]
