"Bravest Face" as written by and Geddy Lee Weinrib Alex Lifeson....
Though we might have precious little
It's still precious

I like that song about this wonderful world
It's got a sunny point of view
And sometimes I feel it's true
At least for a few of us
I like that world; it makes a wonderful song
But there's a darker point of view
But sadly just as true
For so many among us

Though we might have precious little
It's still precious

In the sweetest child there's a vicious streak
In the strongest man there's a child so weak
In the whole wide world there's no magic place
So you might as well rise, put on your bravest face
Put on your bravest face

I like that show where they solve all the murders
An heroic point of view
It's got justice and vengeance too
At least so the story goes
I like that story; makes a satisfying case
But there's a messy point of view
That's sadly just as true
For so many among us
For so many among us

In the softest voice there's an acid tongue
In the oldest eyes there's a soul so young
In the shakiest will there's a core of steel
On the smoothest ride there's a squeaky wheel

In the sweetest child there's a vicious streak
In the strongest man there's a child so weak
In the whole wide world there's no magic place
So you might as well rise, put on your bravest face
Put on your bravest face

In the softest voice there's an acid tongue
In the oldest eyes there's a soul so young
In the shakiest will there's a core of steel
On the smoothest ride there's a squeaky wheel

In the sweetest child there's a vicious streak
In the strongest man there's a child so weak
In the whole wide world there's no magic place
So you might as well rise, put on your bravest face

Though we might have precious little
It's still precious

In the softest voice there's an acid tongue
In the oldest eyes there's a soul so young
In the shakiest will there's a core of steel
On the smoothest ride there's a squeaky wheel

In the sweetest child there's a vicious streak
In the strongest man there's a child so weak
In the whole wide world there's no magical place
So you might as well rise, put on your bravest face
Oh, you might as well rise, put on your bravest face
Put on your bravest face
Put on your bravest face
Put on your bravest face

    General CommentI see this song as being a sort of reality check. It seems to be telling us that, where this is something of face value...there is something more to it. There is more to find behind the cover, is what I'm trying to say. It sort of tells the story of how we as human beings enjoy the stories and tales of the idealized, the romanticized view of the world. It's how we try to forget and put aside the actual truths of our world and our people (whether it be good or bad) for a beautiful lie. And in creating these lies, we must put on our bravest face to endure the actual truths.
    To live, and to lie. That is what this song is about.
