* The last night of R40. [[EndOfAnEra All of it.]] Special mention, however, goes to ShrinkingViolet Neil Peart doing [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness what he had never done in any other concert up to that point:]][[https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MWrV0xRUTuk leave the drumset, get up to the front of the stage, and take a bow for the audience.]] And this is a guy who would normally get off his drums, exit the stage, and leave on his motorcycle without taking any bows whatsoever. Talk about OOCIsSeriousBusiness, ladies and gents!

* "Red Sector A", in a sense. Despite being undiluted NightmareFuel, it's pretty sad if you know where the inspiration came from.

** The lyrics seem to be told from the point of a father who knows his child is going through difficult times and depression and he understands how his child feels, but can't get through to them, the line "Christ what have you done?" seems so real, like the child committed suicide, it's just so tear jerking.

** It's also tragic how Neil's grief hits him at random times during his trip (just like in real life). While riding down a desert road he passes by an RV and sees a grandpa playing with his grandkids through the window. He has to pull over and cry, realizing he'll never be a grandpa.

** The worst part of reading Neil's experiences in "Ghost Rider" is how much he wants to dissociate himself from his previous life because thinking about it is just too painful. He has Rush's bookkeeper draw up some credit cards under the name "John Ellwood Taylor" because he can't think of being Neil Peart of Rush anymore. When a traffic cop recognizes him and asks him "Didn't you used to be a musician?" he replies "[[ThatManIsDead I used to be a lot of things]]."

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEagi9co0Ko "Losing It"]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0YwbAmCwz8 "Time Stand Still"]]. "Time Stand Still" speaks very loudly to this troper, as her parents are nearing their 50's, her friends are all moving away for work, and it'll be several years before she's reunited with her girlfriend.

* "The Garden". Come on, if Rush's LAST EVER song doesn't at least make your eyes water, you ain't human.

* "2112". Imagine your life is controlled entirely by religion. What you do, where you go, who you marry… you get the point. So you find an artifact, a guitar, and teach yourself how to play it. You really like it, not entirely for the sound, but for the expression. But that only makes you question society even more. So eventually [[DrivenToSuicide you commit suicide]].

You keep pushing them, so they grind your beloved guitar to splinters beneath their feet. You have a dream that night about the people that populated your world before, the Elder Race, who are still searching for their home that was so viciously taken from them. When you wake, you cannot bear to live in your world anymore, not after seeing the wonders made by your ancestors. So eventually [[DrivenToSuicide you commit suicide]].
