Smile

Smile
Lyrics:

Smile, though your heart is aching, smile,
Even though it’s breaking
Then there are clouds, in the sky you’ll get by
If you smile, through all fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll find the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness

Although a tear may be ever so near
Cause that’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worth while
If you, you just smile

Although a tear may be ever so near
Cause that’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what’s the use of crying
You’ll find that life is still worth while
If you, you just smile

Smile, darling baby, smile
Thank you, thank you very much

in the context of this album i feel like she may mean these lyrics to be less inspirational than people normally think of them. in this context it puts me in the mind of the poem "We Wear the Mask." Like she's saying, just smiling won't change things even though you pretend they will. Change won't come as long as you are only smiling on all this madness. You will remain under droid control. Sometimes you gotta get pissed and cry then there is revolution.
