Weekend Rush Lyrics

I know Rush was influenced by Ayn Rand in their naiive and impressionable youth, but I think there's a lot of support in their lyrics for my own agrarian neo-feudalist perspective:

When they turn the pages of history
When these days have passed long ago
Will they read of us with sadness
For the seeds that we let grow
We turned our gaze
From the castles in the distance
Eyes cast down
On the path of least resistance

Cities full of hatred
Fear and lies
Withered hearts
And cruel, tormented eyes
Scheming demons
Dressed in kingly guise
Beating down the multitude
And scoffing at the wise. . . .

--Rush, A Farewell to Kings
