Rush - Carve Away The Stone Lyrics




You can roll that stone
To the top of the hill
Drag your ball and chain behind you

You can carry that weight
With an iron will
Or let the pain remain behind you

Chip away the stone
(Sisyphus)
Chip away the stone
Make the burden lighter
If you must roll that rock alone

You can drive those wheels
To the end of the road
You will still find the past right behind you
Try to deny
The weight of the load
Try to put the sins of the past night behind you

Carve away the stone
(Sisyhpus)
Carve away the stone
Make a graven image
With some features of your own

You call roll the stone
To the top of the hill
You can carry that weight
With an iron will
You can drive those wheels
To the end of the road
You can try to deny
The weight of the load

Roll away the stone
(Sisyhpus)
Roll away the stone
If you could just move yours
I could get working on my own

Rush Carve Away The Stone Comments
  1. Flame Boy

    The great unsung song of Rush!

  2. Júnior Ary

    You can roll
    that stone
    to the top
    of the hill

    drag
    your ball
    and chain
    behind you

    you can carry
    that weight
    with an
    iron will

    or let
    the pain
    remain
    behind you

    chip away the stone
    (Sisyphus)

    make the
    burden lighter
    if you must roll
    that rock alone

    you can drive
    those wheels
    to the end
    of the road

    you will
    still find
    the past right
    behind you

    try to
    deny
    the weight
    of the load

    try to
    put the sins
    of the past night
    behind you

    carve away the stone
    (Sisyhpus)

    make
    a graven image
    with some features
    of your own

    you call
    roll the stone
    to the top
    of the hill

    you can
    carry that weight
    with an
    iron will

    you can drive
    those wheels
    to the end
    of the road

    you can
    try to deny
    the weight
    of the load

    roll away the stone
    (Sisyhpus)

    if you could
    just move yours
    I could get
    working on my own

    Only song I didnt love , but like .....is the Color of Right !!!!!!!! Limbo may be my fav instrumental !??!? Top 10 Rush album for me ! #8 !

  7. CosmicJazzman 46

    This whole Album is one of Rush's best. This tune in particular just kicks ass! The guitars sound sick,Alex kicks ass,Geddy's bass lines a Melody all on its own under soaring vocals and Neil drives this band! Truly an original band

    Agreed! Alex's guitar tone hearkens back to his Gibson ES-335 used on Caress Of Steel. This is an underrated gem.

    CygnusRoc

    Yeah it's strange that a lot of Rush fans don't like this one. I think it has some great songs on it. The only one I don't like that much is Resist. It's okay but I usually skip it and play Limbo.

    Three words: RUSH RULES ALL!!!

    Three more: fuck Warner Media.
