[Chorus]
And if the fires burn out there’s only fire to blame
(hold back the rain)
No time for worry cause we’re on the roam again
(hold back the rain)
The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane
(hold back the rain)
Not on your own so help me please hold back the rain

“The Project”

“It [takes] an exceptional mind and a still more exceptional integrity to remain untouched by the brain-destroying influences of the world’s doctrines, the accumulated evil of centuries—to remain human, since the human is the rational.”
Atlas Shrugged, Part 3, Ch. 2

“You will not enter [Atlantis] until you learn that you do not need to convince or to conquer the world. When you learn it, you will see that through all the years of your struggle, nothing had barred you from Atlantis and there were no chains to hold you, except the chains you were willing to wear. Through all those years, that which you most wished to win was waiting for you.”
Atlas Shrugged, Part 3, Ch. 2

“We were scattered all over the country, as the outcasts we had always been, only now we accepted our parts with conscious intention. Our sole relief were the rare occasions when we could see one another. We found that we liked to meet–in order to be reminded that human beings still existed.”
Atlas Shrugged, Part 3, Ch. 1
