"We Hold On" as written by and Alex Lifeson Geddy Lee Weinrib....
How many times
Do we tire of all the little battles
Threaten to call it quits
Tempted to cut and run?
How many times
Do we weather out the stormy evenings
Long to slam the front door
Drive away into the setting sun?

Keep going on till dawn
How many times must another line be drawn?
We could be down and gone
But we hold on

Keep going on till dawn
How many times must another line be drawn?
We could be down and gone
But we hold on

How many times
Do we chaff against the repetition
Straining against the faith
Measured out in coffee breaks?
How many times
Do we swallow our ambition
Long to give up the same old way
Find another road to take?

Keep going on till dawn
How many times must another line be drawn?
We could be down and gone
But we hold on

Keep holding on so long
'Cause there's a chance that we might not be so wrong
We could be down and gone
But we hold on

How many times
Do we wonder if it's even worth it?
There's got to be some other way
Way to get me through the day

Keep going on till dawn
How many times must another line be drawn?
We could be down and gone
But we hold on

Keep going on till dawn
How many times must another line be drawn?
We could be down and gone
But we hold on

    General CommentThis song has an odd vibe to it, but different nonetheless. I like the guitar work in the verses.

    General CommentI think this is a song about how people's faith to endure and stay the course in their day to day grind of their lives, relationships, and work. Sometime you get fed up, and you want to quit but you hold on... Great song.

    General CommentWhat's really cool about this song is that there is a bit of a Middle East beat going in the back round. Awesome song my favorite off the new album.

    General CommentThis song is a dare. a challenge. a joke on the obvious pitfalls of repetition, strain, obvious bitter hours from work, the stresses of life. We could be done and gone. But we hold on. what's next.. we hold on?...
