the wreckers lyrics – rush

the wreckers

the breaker’s roar
on an unseen sh*r*,
in the teeth of a hurricane,
oh, we struggle in vain

a h*llish night,
a ghostly light,
appears through the driving rain,
salvation in a human chain

all i know is that sometimes you have to be wary of a miracle too good to be true,
all i know is that sometimes the truth is contrary everything in life you thought you knew
all i know is that sometimes you have to be wary, ’cause sometimes the target is you

driven aground,
with that awful sound
drowned by the cheer from the sh*r*,
oh, we wonder what for?

the people swarm
through the darkling storm.
gather everything they can score
’til their backs won’t bear any more.

all i know is that sometimes you have to be wary of a miracle too good to be true,
all i know is that sometimes the truth is contrary everything in life you thought you knew,
all i know is that sometimes you have to be wary of a miracle too good to be true,
all i know is that sometimes the truth is contrary, ’cause sometimes the target is you.

the breaker’s roar
on an unseen sh*r*,
in the teeth of an icy grave,
in the teeth of an icy grave

whoa, the human chain
leaves a bl**dy stain,
washed away in the pounding waves,
washed away in the pounding waves

all i know is that sometimes you have to be wary of a miracle too good to be true,
all i know is that sometimes the truth is contrary everything in life you thought you knew
all i know is that sometimes you have to be wary, ’cause sometimes the target is you.
all i know is that memory can be too much to carry striking down like a bolt from the blue
all i know is that sometimes the truth is contrary everything in life you thought you knew

all i know is that sometimes the truth is contrary, ’cause sometimes the target is you
