The Enemy Within
Things crawl in the darkness
That imagination spins
Needles at your nerve ends
Crawl like spiders on your skin
I’m not giving in to security under pressure
I’m not missing out on the promise of adventure
I’m not giving up on implausible dreams
Experience to extremes
Experience to extremes…
Suspicious looking stranger
Flashes you a dangerous grin
Shadows across your window…
Was it only trees in the wind?
Every breath a static charge,
A tongue that tastes like tin
Steely-eyed outside to hide the enemy within
To you, is it movement or is it action?
Is it contact or just reaction?
And you…revolution or just resistance?
Is it living, or just existence?
Yeah, you! It takes a little more persistence
To get up and go the distance
This pretty much sums up how I feel about our own “enemy within” and how we should all react to such an enemy. Listen to the song, it’s quite inspiring. Although Rush is lead by jew Geddy Lee, drummer Neil Peart writes most of their lyrics, including this song; which is part of his trilogy “Fear”. The point is not to fear, but Neil explains this and his intentions with the song best himself.
I have kind of hi-jacked the original meaning of the song to represent our enemy within, but the point he attempts to make with the fear trilogy, and especially this song is a good one. No giving in to security under pressure. No chance I’m missing out on the adventure of standing up to the jew. The song ends with the most important message of all. You’ve GOT to get up and go the distance if you wish to see your lives free of this parasite. In my eyes we must take the “experience to extremes”, meaning we must be willing to push everything to the limit to defeat our subverters.
Here’s what Neil had to say about the trilogy, which is actually four songs now with the addition of Freeze from the band’s 2002 album “Vapor Trails”.
Neil Peart (Jim Ladd “Innerview”, 1984): “It’s part one of a trilogy but it’s the last one to appear. The last three albums have each contained a part of that trilogy, and I started thinking about them all at the same time, but they appear in the order in which they were easiest to grasp. In other words, “Witch Hunt” was the first one, dealt with that mentality of mob rule, and what happens to a bunch of people when they come together and they’re afraid, and they go out and do something really stupid and really horrible. That was easy to grasp, and you see plenty of examples of that in real life as well as in fiction and in films of course, too. So that was easy to deal with. The second one was “The Weapon,” and it was dealing with how people use your fears against you, as a weapon, and that took a little longer to come to grips with, but eventually I got my thinking straightened out and the images that I wanted to use, and collected them all up, and it came out. And then finally, “The Enemy Within” was more difficult, because I wanted to look at how it affects me, but it was more than about me. I don’t like to be introspective as a rule. I think I’m gonna set that down as my first rule, as “never be introspective!” But, uh, I wanted to, at the same time I wanted to write about myself in a universal kind of way, I want to find things in myself that I think apply.” (thanks, Mike – Mountlake Terrace, Washington)
Click the video below and listen to the song. It’s an amazing work of musical and lyrical genius. Funky guitar riffs, intelligently structured lyrics, and a complicated, synchopated, and swinging drum beat make this one of my favorites. I hope readers of this blog will enjoy it as well. Maybe the message of this song will inspire a few more to action against the jew.
