These are the lyrics. The first two verses are done as voice through a synthesizer, very cool.
This is Cygnus X-1 by Rush STUDIO VERSION from the album Farewell to KIngs, 1976, come for a musical journey down a black holeCYGNUS X-1
In the constellation of cygnus
There lurks a mysterious, invisible force
The black hole
Of cygnus x-1
Six stars of the northern cross
In mourning for their sisters loss
In a final flash of glory
Nevermore to grace the night....
To telescopic eye
The star that would not die
All who dare
To cross her course
Are swallowed by
A fearsome force
Through the void
To be destroyed
Or is there something more?
Atomized ---- at the core
Or through the astral door ----
I set a course just east of lyra
And northwest of pegasus
Flew into the light of deneb
Sailed across the milky way
On my ship, the rocinante
Wheeling through the galaxies,
Headed for the heart of cygnus
Headlong into mystery
The x-ray is her siren song
My ship cannot resist her long
Nearer to my deadly goal
Until the black hole ----
Like a spiral sea,
Sound and fury
Drowns my heart
Is torn apart....
This is a live segment! Just a partial portion (Ends with Working Man) but so cool.
