by Rush

Album: Clockwork Angels (2012)
  • I was brought up to believe
    Belief has failed me now
    The bright glow of optimism
    Abandoned me somehow

    Oh, belief has failed me now
    Life goes from bad to worse
    No philosophy consoles me
    In a clockwork universe

    Oh, life goes from bad to worse
    I still choose to live
    Find a measure of love and laughter
    And another measure to give

    Oh, I still choose to live and give
    Even while I grieve
    Though the balance tilts against me
    I was brought up to believe Writer/s: Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee, Neil Elwood Peart
