Lyrics:

Things crawl in the darkness
That imagination spins
Needles at your nerve ends
Crawl like spiders on your skin

Pou-Pou-Pou-Pounding in your temples
And the surge of adrenaline
Every muscle tense to fence the enemy within

  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

  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

To you - is it movement or is it action?
It is contact or just reaction?
And you - revolution, just resistance?
Is it living, or just existence?
Yeah, you - takes a little more persistence
To get up and go the distance...

  I'm not giving in
  I'm not missing out
  I'm not giving up on implausible dreams
  Experience to extremes

  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

Hey Hey Hey Yeah!

Tablature Explanation:
(+) = This symbol stands for "Coda". A passage at the end of a movement
      or composition that brings it to a formal close.
AC  = "Al coda" - means "to the tail", tells you that you must go
      to the end section which starts with the Coda sign (+).
DC  = "Da capo" - means "from the head", when you see these initials
      you go back to the beginning of the piece of music.
DS  = "Dal segno" - means "from the sign", go back in the tabulature
      only as far as the (%) sign.
(.) = Fermata, the prolongation of a tone, chord, or rest beyond
      its indicated time value.
RF  = repeat and fade
Rit = "Ritardando" - Gradually slowing in tempo; retarding.
~   = vibrato
.   = staccato; mute the note immediately after striking it
^   = bend string up to indicated pitch/fret shown in parenthesis ()
h   = hammer
p   = pull
r   = release bend (string/fret may be indicated)
s   = slide (used when back slash "\" or forward slash "/" don't fit)
t   = fret board tap (not many of these with Rush)
u   = unison bend, the lower note is bent to achieve unison with the
      higher note
x   = percussive note with no pitch or a muted note
|   = bar separating measures

x/  = pick slide up
x\  = pick slide down

      indicated)
[5] = artificial harmonic (use thumb to follow through the pick attack)

LT  = "Lifeson Tuning" or Modified Nashville Tuning.  When the low E, A,
      and D strings (usually on a 6 string acoustic) are replaced with
      lighter gauge strings and tuned one octave higher than normal
      (different from Nashville tuning which would also include the G
      string being tuned one octave higher).


Other pertinent information:
  Tempo:  1/4 note = varies
  Tuning:  Standard [EADGBe].
  Key signature:  E, Ab during bridge section.
  Effects:  Overdrive/Distortion, Reverb, chorus, pitch shifter.

Effects/Misc Line:  Provides effects information, number of repeats, etc.

Chord Line:  Provides the chord name for the chords used in the
             tab below.

Note Duration Line:  Provides the "value" of each note, e.g., whole,
                     half, quarter, etc.

Note Duration Designator Table:
  w = Whole note                   h = Half note
  q = Quarter note                 H = Dotted half note
  Q = Dotted Quarter note          s = Sixteenth note
  e = Eighth note                  S = Dotted sixteenth note
  E = Dotted eighth note           + = Duration exceeds 2 measures
  t = Thirty-second note
  T = Dotted thirty-second note

  Notes with two designations immediately adjacent to each other
  have durations added (e.g., he = half note + eigth note, etc.)

String lines:  Represent the strings of a guitar.  The tab is laid
               out as if you placed a right handed guitar on your
               lap, string side up.  A vertical line character "|"
               represents a bar between measures.  A dash "-" represents
               each string.  The numbers indicate which fret should
               be fingered to sound the note.  The first space after
               every bar is a blank space that is almost never used.
               Quarter notes are separated by 3 dashes, eighth notes
               are separated by 1 dash.  In an effort to make the
               ASCII tab look as much like tab in a music book, the
               notes are spaced out as accurately as possible.  In the
               event the notes will not fit into the format shown above,
               the tab may be expanded (usually only required for
               solos).
