Rush Reboot – I Think I’m Going Bald (1975)

For this week’s reboot, I wanted to go a bit lighter due to all the heavy posting I have done myself and seen from others.  So I present the song I Think I’m Going Bald from the album Caress of Steel.

“I Think I’m Going Bald” was written for Kim Mitchell, who at the time was the frontman of the band Max Webster and a close friend of the band.

Music: Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson
Lyrics: Neil Peart

I looked in the mirror today
My eyes just didn’t seem so bright
I’ve lost a few more hairs;
I think I’m going bald
I think I’m going bald
Seems like only yesterday
We would sit and talk of dreams all night
Dreams of youth
And simple truths
Now we’re so involved
So involved with life

Walk down vanity fair
Memory lane everywhere
Wall Street shuffles there
Dressed in flowing hair

Once we loved the flowers
Now we ask the price of the land
Once we would take water
But now it must be wine
Now we’ve been
And now we’ve seen
What price peace of mind
Take a piece of my mind

My life is slipping away
I’m aging every day
But even when I’m grey
I’ll still be grey my way
