Props of the day to Mr. Drum Boner himself, Neil Peart, who was named by Blender as the second worst lyricist in rock! Only the mighty Sting himself rated higher (lower?), and while I haven't seen a full list, this tidbit from Reuters is a pure delight:
Blender described Canadian rocker Peart's lyrics as "richly awful tapestries of fantasy and science."
Pretty much, yeah.
God, I want to listen to "Marathon" right now.
