** 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]].

** "Afterimage" was written as a tribute to Robbie Whalen, a longtime friend and employee of the band. At the end of the music video, look at Neil. ''He looks like he's close to tears.''

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

** [[http://rushvault.com/2012/02/04/red-sector-a-riffing-on-the-dignity-of-survival/ This interview]] explaining the lines "Are we the last ones left alive/Are we the only human beings to survive" just makes it more heartbreaking, since it basically summarises the actual reactions of Holocaust survivors, victims of governments' brutality against indigenous people, and so on. A sort of Fridge TearJerker, if you will.

** BU2B sounds like your typical "god does not exist" song, but if you consider Neil Peart's tragedies he suffered, it becomes sob-worthy, not just lyrically but its heavy instrumentation too- both make a sad and heartbreaking song:
