"Distant Early Warning" is a song by the Canadian prog rock band Rush. Drummer Neil Peart was always a bit of an outsider. Bassist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson had been friends since high school. Peart joined Rush after their original drummer left. The original two members were outgoing while Peart enjoyed reading books in the dressing room when he got off stage. All three were intensely serious when it came to their musicianship. Soon after joining the band, Peart became the band's main lyricist. He brought literary influences from science fiction, philosophy, and the classics to his lyrics. "Distant Early Warning" ends with the words "Absalom, Absalom" which Peart took from William Faulkner’s 1936 book of the same name. The song is from 1984's Grace Under Pressure, inspired by one of Peart's favorite Ernest Hemingway quotes, "Courage is grace under pressure."
The backing track for "Distant Early Warning" is available as an instrumental on Karaoke Version.
