    the song idea came from the Astral World. Someone in that band traveled to the astral and got that song. probably met some great teachers over there as I did. The Hall of Records he may have toured. Read of it: it is our true home, not earth.
    Namaste. Landru

    The genius of Neil Peart and ''RUSH'' as a band meant alot to the fans of their music in relating to the world of the 1970's in thanks to a old friend from my pass--Larry ''The Wizard'' of music and knowledge from A 2 Z. In understanding the past is to understand the future of ''The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth''. Listening to this song today brings back some lost memories of ''RUSH'' in this song ''2112:Overture/The Temples Of Syrinx'' that reminds me of long ago when on earth the gods and godesses were honored and worshiped as a place like ''Heaven on Earth'' throughout the lands through the rituals of the Priests who kept the home fires burning for the people in their individual thought to honor and worship them in the secret knowledge they held. Then one day as told in ''The Prophecy of Hermes Trismegistus'' as the messinger of the gods that was foretold to Asclepius when a day comes that the gods will not be needed anymore and they will return back to their home in Heaven and the land and the temples will be destoyed by the foreign invaders to be replaced by these New Priests and Kings that has been keeping this secret knowledge of all kinds from the remaining people since then until the present to control us for our own good they believe and not to share with our discovories. Then one day ever since 2/1/12 the signs has been revealing themselfs to us that the gods one day in the future of 2112 in the honor of their Creator from heaven to take back the knowledge that was lost to most of us so that ''The Meek Shall Inheret The Earth'' again.

    The song is about a dystopian futuristic society in which the arts, particularly music, have been suppressed by the Priests of the Temples of Syrinx.
