Rush: Armor and Sword Meaning
Armor and Sword Lyrics
Are enough to leave a thousand cuts
We build our defenses, a place of safety
And leave the darker places unexplored
Sometimes the fortress is too strong
Or the love is too weak
What should have...

Everyone bears some mental scars from childhood no matter how well their up bringing. Some use these excuses for their adult actions , wheathr it be anger, infidelity, addictions, ect. Some deal quietly with a shield while others result to the sword. I think this song eludes to an internal fight from each individual to heal the thousand cuts each child is heir to so as to rise in one form or another spiritualy above them. Either way, no one gets to their heaven without a fight.

This song is about how religion can be like armor to people making them better. Or it can be like a sword causing them to harm their fellow man by waging war for the sake of their own beliefs. The message is it's up to you which one you choose to embody.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
