And another, Chemistry:

Signals Omitted

Presto fans peeved

Snakes and arrows fits in

Terribly



Between the wheels is welcome

But where's Big Money Gone

La Villa's been ejected

Mysteriously



Why oh why?

Reaction to the new songs

Two one one two

Erections caused by Rush Thongs

H 2 O

Costs Ã,£6 at the concert

Oh but why

Cant they just get rid

Of that prat Peart?



Eccentricity? Senility

Seems to me its self pity



Emotion Detector

Never been played

Ejected from the play list

Dismissively



Elemental mistakes with words

You cant just polish turds

The tunes have gone all abstract

Horribly



Seems to me

Geddy had gone gaga

Sound on sound

Another layer of guitar

It's a woe

No songs from Rush or Presto

Oh but how

Do we get them to start playing Limbo?



Eccentricity? Senility

Seems to me its self pity
The new songs are an abomination

one more from the parody oeuvre

Kid gloves

A tour  of no difference
A tour  more self serving muck
Underwhelmed by everything
New songs mate youââ,¬â,,¢re out of luck


Call it bland frustration
Call it same old stuff
Each show is the same
Your choice is crude
Your choice is duff
Go and learn The weapon
Cos Spindrift sounds so rough



Play the songs we love
Play the songs we love
Go and learn The weapon
And the other oldie stuff
Play the songs we love
Play the songs we love
Go and learn the Weapon
Cos its cool and ainââ,¬â,,¢t so duff


A tour of  no difference
Weââ,¬â,,¢ve just had our fill
Oh God one more live release
Of constant pish and swill

Patterââ,¬â,,¢s got no chuckles
Alex plays its cool
Peart wears some cream for corns
The motorbiking fool
Go and learn The weapon
Or something else you tool

Play the songs we love
Play the songs we love
Go and learn The weapon
And the other oldie stuff
Play the songs kids love
How about Kid gloves
Go and learn the Weapon
Cos its cool and ainââ,¬â,,¢t so duff

Closer To The Heart

And the fans who pull their faces
Will be the ones who start
To moan about our new CD
Fools clicked ââ,¬ËœAdd To Cartââ,¬â,,¢

They blacklist our setlist
In the second half
Weââ,¬â,,¢ve lost our creativity
They still click ââ,¬ËœAdd To Cartââ,¬â,,¢

P1ss off if you donââ,¬â,,¢t like it
We couldnââ,¬â,,¢t give a fart
Pension fund stability
Is closest to our hearts

The bank is now our captain
The balance sheet our chart
Weââ,¬â,,¢ll bolster our securities
From those who ââ,¬ËœAdd To Cartââ,¬â,,¢, I said click the ââ,¬ËœAdd To Cartââ,¬â,,¢

Fantastic stuff

No more apt title for my effort

"A Farewell To Kings"


When they spurn the pages of history
"Oh their days have passed long ago!"
Still they fleece us all with gladness
Of the hard earned dosh we blow
Neil turns his gaze
From his castles in the distance
lyrics jot down
In a bath, he needs assistance

cd's full, collate computerize
Withered arts and cruel, tormented cries
Singing Ooh Aahs pressed in to disguise
Compressing down the multi tracks and
Trigger Harmonize

Initiates are wandering
To the Vapid Trials Sales Booth
Ancient noble showering
His bitterness on youth
Can't he find the mind that made him strong?
Can't he learn to feel what's right
And what's wrong?
What's wrong?

cd's full, collate computerize
Withered arts and cruel, tormented cries
Singing Ooh Aahs pressed in to disguise
Compressing down the multi tracks and
Trigger Harmonize
Could we raise the bar and make some art?
Should we blind the minds that plead us;
"Closer to the heart!"?

Superb.. just need Cygnus and Cinderalla Man and AFTK is done...:)

Not quite in the same league as the above but here's a go at Cinderella Man

Three modest men from Toronto
Like to play YYZ (zee)
But they have a need to discover
a use for these weaker new tunes

Please play The Weapon
Just don't play faithless
Lack of surprises
Drive fans insane
We want Necromancer
I'd take Jacob's Ladder
Maybe Ged cannot sing them
He'd squeal in pain

No more Force Ten
We liked Entre Nous
Oh God! Tom Garrett farted...


Cinderella Man
Would be nice, play it again
They can't understand
Why we scream
Cinderella Man
Check out our set-list plans
Try as they might
They will not play our dreams

The fans feel betrayed but our love's not waining
The fanbois can't see reality
And look to the eyes of their heroes
They cum despite playing the same tunes

We held up our setlists
to challenge the grumpy
But Time and Motion
would drive us insane
Ged's vocal chords fight him
But shouldn't beat him
Don't be so dismissive
Sing our songs in pain

Cinderella Man
Would be nice, play it again
They can't understand
Why we scream
Cinderella Man
Check out our set-list plans
Try as they might
They will not play our dreams

Not sure about this but I don't mind if someone else takes it on

"Smegmus X-1, Book One: The Voyage"

[Pro log(ic):]

In the constipation of Smegmus, there lurks a mysterious, invisible force: the Black Hole
of Raskulinecz  X-1...

Three Stars of the Northern Cross
In mourning for their genius loss
In a final flush of gory
Nevermore to grace the night...


Invisible to proctoscopic eye
Senility, the star that could not write

All who dare to cross his course
Are swallowed by a Fanboi force

Through the Void
To be destroyed
Or is there something more?
Lionized...by the Core?
Or through the Anal Door?
Too sore!...


He set a course just East of Lyric
And Northwest of Imagery
Flew into a blight of Reason
And by-passed Personality
On the ship, the 'Raskulinecz '
Reeling from the Neil Peartese
I headed for 10 Pints of Magners
Headlong into Pishtory

The X-ra(y)te is applied to song
This shit should not exist, (The Pong! :-X)
Nearer to its deadly goal
Until the Black Hole
Gains control...


Spinning, whirling
Shit descending
Like a lavatory
Unending...

Sound injury
Down my Heart
All the verve
Is torn apart...

"Natural Compliance"

[1. Hide Tools]

When the ebbing mane retreats
beyond old Lerxsty's hairline
A neat array of follicle tools
Gives a short lived fantasy
His microcosmic Barnet
Needs complete trichology

A simple kind mirror
To reflect upon the bone
All the busy little creatures
Moving out their families
Living on his pate
Theyââ,¬â,,¢ll soon fall off into the sea...
Spiels upon Spiels From his Biking Forays
A patter so bland, its cornflakes!
Time after time to increasing dismay
His lyrics continually perplex

[2. Wipes A Trace]

A quantum leap for Nerd
In Cut and in Paste
My universe formed to this band!!

Thevââ,¬â,,¢ve messed up the magic
by Pro tool logic
A digitalized world out of hand

Computerized gimmicks
Far inferior lyrics
We dance to a synthetic brand

In the Cash Scrimmage
No room for the passion
They plunder by merchandise stand

[3. Permanent Raves]

Space, Light and Texture
Must also be Canned
With a view towards our preservation
Given the fans
Lack objectivity
sh!t will surely serve just as well

Art Stand Concessions
Increased market campaigns
Need still further by my calculations
Given the lame
State of Neils Equity
Tours will surely help us along

The most endangered species
The honest fan
Will still survive assimilation
For All The Worldââ,¬â,,¢s . . `
A work of integrity
Hemispheres, CoS, Rush are strong

Weââ,¬â,,¢ll Permanent Wave A Farewell To Kings
And bury the last decades dross
But 2112, MP Fly By Night
Mean our lives will go on without loss...

Jonners

Given the lame
State of Neils Equity



People, we have a winner. That, without doubt, is the cleverst parody I have read. Full stop

Bisto, I salute you!

Ta, ;) got to do some decorating now though or I'll be strung up by my Neil's Lyric Sheet Bollocks ! :-X
