[Intro]
I was brought up to believe
The universe has a plan:
We are only human;
It's not ours to understand...

...

I was brought up to believe
The universe has a plan:
We are only human;
It's not ours to understand.

The universe has a plan:
All is for the best;
Some will be rewarded,
And the Devil will take the rest.

[Chorus]
All is for the best:
Believe in what we're told;
Blind men in the market
Buying what we're sold,
Believing what we're told
Until our final breath,
While our loving Watchmaker
Loves us all to death!

In a world of cut and thrust,
I was always taught to trust.
In a world where all must fail,
Heaven's justice will prevail.

The joy and pain that we receive,
Each comes with it's own cost:
The price of what we're winning
Is the same as what we've lost.

All is for the best:
Believe in what we're told;
Blind men in the market
Buying what we're sold,
Believing in what we're told
Until our final breath,
While our loving Watchmaker
Loves us all to death!

[Bridge]
Until our final breath,
The joy and pain that we receive
Must be what we deserve,
I was brought up to believe.

Until our final breath,
The joy and pain that we receive
Must be what we deserve,
I was brought up to believe.

[Finale]
All is for the best:
Believe in what we're told;
Blind men in the market
Buying what we're sold,
Believing what we're told
Until our final breath,
While our loving Watchmaker
Loves us all to...
Believing what we're told
Until our final breath,
While our loving Watchmaker
Loves us all to, loves us all to death!
