Ahead By A Century
The Tragically Hip Lyrics


First thing we'd climb a tree
And maybe then we'd talk
Or sit silently
And listen to our thoughts
With illusions of someday
Cast in a golden light
No dress rehearsal
This is our life

And that's where the hornet stung me
And I had a feverish dream
With revenge and doubt
Tonight, we smoke them out

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century

Stare in the morning shroud
And then the day began
I tilted your cloud
You tilted my hand
Rain falls in real time
And rain fell through the night
No dress rehearsal, this is our life

But that's when the hornet stung me
And I had a serious dream
With revenge and doubt
Tonight, we smoked them out

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
And disappointing you is gettin' me down

I just watched the final episode of "Anne with an E".
The series is extremely brilliant, inspired and mesmerizing. The photography is very artistic, the screenplay is so brilliant that I would like to shake the hands of whoever wrote it.
The series began with a beautiful story that unfolded into an epos. It is the story of a very brave and special young girl, an orphan that was bullied but managed to overcome extreme challenges through her love for language, her dreamy nature and the brave visions she had of herself. It is an ode to the weird, the weak, the unfortunate that finally overcome and triumph.


So eloquent, so elegant, so elating.


I will not go into details because I don't want to spoil the series for anyone. I hope there will be a season four.


The final episode made me go through all possible and different kinds of devastating, desperate, elevating, romantic and ecstatic emotions that a human being can have.
"Anne with and E" is a work of art. A true masterpiece. From screenplay to directing, to acting.


Unfortunately, I just found out that the show was cancelled. That is often the fate of qualitative works in the superficial world that we live in. Everything depends on bucks.


I can only thank the authors who did fulfil all the promises the show made, they gave the audience closure and what a closure it was!

And that's where the hornet stung me
And I had a feverish dream

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century

And I had a serious dream

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century

First thing we'd climb a tree

And listen to our thoughts
Illusions of someday
Casting a golden light
No dress rehearsal

And that's when the hornet stung me
And I had a feverish dream

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century

No dress rehearsals this is our life

And that's when the hornet stung me
And I had a serious dream

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century

And disappointing you's getting me down

Close but no cigar. It's:

And that's when the hornet stung me
And I had a feverish dream
Filled with fear and doubt
Tonight we smoke them out


EDIT: This is so weird. I had the original CD and those were the lyrics. Now it looks like they've either been changed or the CD was wrong. Hmm. :\

Such a shame CBC and Netflix cancelled "Anne With An E." I've learned so much watching it compared to other crappy teen shows. It took place in the old era yet it tackles most of the issues we face today. I'm still hoping they renew "Anne With An E" someday. Love you, Anne!

David Mansfield

Right! They said her story is fulfilled. But they left so many unanswered questions!
