10. The Optimist (4:52)
Some people sleep away this life
Dream away all the pain and lie
Playing safe in a lullaby behind their fences
Some people like to roll the dice
Live the risk to lose the fight
Gambling with no alibis
And close their eyes to consequences
What's up with those killing wars?
Hasn't there been enough before?
Do all the dead get to paradise
Or will the afterlife just go under
And will the answers ever show… oh

How far to the top of the mountain
I'm standing strong on a ledge of the dream
Cloudbusting pushing weight off my shoulders
Cause I long to feel the sun again
Ooh… the optimist climbs my friend
Gonna rise till the end…ooh

Some people lay awake at night
Longing in the dead of light
Crying for the sacrifice and their long lost chances
Some people always raise their glass
Never worry if their life has gone astray
Cold indifferent eyes and false pretenses
See the boy on his bloody knees
Crying hard from the pain he bleeds
Maybe never gonna live to grow his senses
How can we save his heart with hope

I'm raining love from the core of my fountain
I let it run for the rainbow within
I'm dream catching in a world getting colder
Cause I've got to feel the sun my friend
Ooh. The optimist tries again
And never dies before the end

How far to the top of the mountain
Standing strong on the ledge of a dream
Cloudbusting pushing weight off my shoulders
Cause I long to see the sun again
The optimist climbs my friend
Gonna climb till the end
