The song peaked at number one on the U. In Rush's music of the late s and early s, their progressive rock is indicated by asymmetric time signatures and lyrics fitting into a concept album, and in "Show Don't Tell", their Show Dont Tell - Rush - Presto rock is shown by using a very complex riff played in unison by the members of the band.
The funkier Ungawa - Degom - The Rmxtape structure proved to be difficult for Neil Peart when he played the drums for the song.
He explained in Canadian Musician Show Dont Tell - Rush - Presto . That was about the hardest thing for me to find the right pattern for. I wanted to maintain a groove and yet follow the bizarre Various - Auteur Labels Object Music 1978-1981 that the guitar riff was leading into.
It was demanding technically, but at the same time, because of that, we were determined that it should have a rhythmic groove under it. It's not enough for us to produce a part that's technically demanding; it has to have an overwhelming significance musically.
So it had to groove into the rest of the song and it had to have a pulse to it that was apart from what we were playing. As is the case with a vast majority of Rush songs, Peart wrote the lyrics for this song. In an interview, he explained that "Show Don't Tell" is an example of his trend from the album Grace Under Pressure onward from writing concepts and abstractions to a more concrete, first-person viewpoint, or as he noted when interviewed a perspective with a "stance and a good attitude".
Peart's philosophy throughout the song is epitomized with the very no-nonsense lyric "You can twist perception. Reality won't budge! Who can you believe? The chorus shows the protagonist's resolution to being fooled: stop listening to the schemer's persuasion, pay attention only if the schemer shows evidence, rather than being convinced by conniving words.
The second verse uses vivid imagery of a courtroom trial as the solution to the protagonist's; however, in this case, the deceived protagonist is the "judge and the jury". After the second verse and chorus, an instrumental section features a bass solo by Geddy Lee and a shorter guitar solo by Alex Lifeson. The chorus in the last section uses more courtroom imagery and then alternates lines from the chorus between the two verses and the chorus using courtroom imagery. It was then dropped from all future concerts.
