    Bob Dylan — “Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands”:



    The kings of Tyrus with their convict list
    Are waiting in line for their geranium kiss
    And you wouldn’t know it would happen like this
    But who among them really wants just to kiss you?

    Just recently was stuck on AFTK about two weeks ago. The first Rush album i ever heard and still brings joy when i listen to it. Very interesting that the first 5 songs have that same feel. Then you get Cygnus at the end. I asked my dad to play this album more than anything else he had by Rush. Perfection.
