"Sweet Miracle" as written by and Geddy Lee Weinrib Neil Peart....
I wasn't walking on water
I was standing on a reef
When the tide came in
Swept beneath the surface
Lost without a trace
No hope at all
No hope at all

Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Of life

I wasn't walking with angels
I was talking to myself
Rising up to the surface
Raging against the night
Starless night

Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Love's sweet miracle
Of life

Oh, salvation
Oh, salvation
Oh, salvation
Oh, salvation

I wasn't praying for magic
I was hiding in plain sight
Rising up from the surface
To fly into the light, into the light

Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Of life

Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Oh, sweet miracle
Of life

    General Commenti think this is about when Neil found his reason for living...i havent finished his book yet so i dont know if its in there but thats what this sounds like.

    General Commenti would say that the guess that peart wrote this song about the lowest point in his life is correct. it seems to just say how low he was, very lyrically of course, add in the customary awesome guitar and bass parts, drums and then we have a rush soon-to-be classic

    General CommentÄ°n my opinion this song is about a criticism of religions.

    I wasn't walking on water
    I was standing on a reef
    When the tide came in

    I think this part is about Moses and his intervention to the Red Sea.

    Ä°n every part and paragraph we see a denial about miracles, magics....
