"Spindrift" is the second single of Rush's 2007 album Snakes & Arrows. "The Larger Bowl (A Pantoum)" was originally going to be the second single, but was shortly after changed to "Spindrift". Although released as the second single from the album, the song failed to debut on any commercial chart, while "The Larger Bowl" managed to see chart status.

Lyrical background

According to Neil Peart, the lyrics to "Spindrift" use sea-weather imagery as a metaphor for a lover's quarrel,[1] similar to "Distant Early Warning" from the album Grace Under Pressure.
