Sabbath music remembrance: Paradigm Blue, “Bravado” (9/11 tribute)

Today being the Sabbath, I would normally post some music (classical or not) that is both interesting and pleasant enough to qualify as “oneg Shabbat” (Sabbath delight).

But today is also the 20th anniversary of 9/11.

In its wake, Paradigm Blue (then primarily a Rush cover band) recorded and released this 9/11 tribute, a cover of the song “Bravado” overlaid with audio from the day.

May you be inscribed and sealed in the Book of Life. Shabbat shalom.

(Lyrics: Neil Peart OBM)

If we burn our wings
Flying too close to the sun
If the moment of glory
Is over before it's begun
If the dream is won
Though everything is lost
We will pay the price
But we will not count the cost (x2)
When the dust has cleared
And victory denied
A summit too lofty
River a little too wide
If we keep our pride
Though paradise is lost
We will pay the price
But we will not count the cost (x2)
And if the music stops
There's only the sound of the rain
All the hope and glory
All the sacrifice in vain
And if love remains
Though everything is lost
We will pay the price
But we will not count the cost…
