I've actually read an interview with Neil in which he addressed that very subject. He said that once he gave the lyrics to Geddy, he treated the vocals as an instrument
, and the lyric itself was no longer his focus.
Personally, I think if you can't tell the mood of the song from the sound
of the vocal, regardless of lyric, you need a new singer...
