Something To Believe In
1991
7 Day's Live
56
Well, I see him on the TV
Preaching 'bout the promised lands
He tells me, "Believe in Jesus"
Steals the money from my hands
Some say he was a good man
Lord, I think he sinned, yeah, yeah

22 years of mental tears
Cries a suicidal Vietnam vet
Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore
To find his country didn't want him back
Their bullets took his best friends in Saigon

Our lawyers took his wife, his kids, no regrets
In a time I don't remember
In a war he can't forget
He cried, "Forgive me for what I done there
'Cause I never meant the things I did"

And give me something to believe in
If there's a Lord above
And give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord arise

My best friend died a lonely man
In some palm springs hotel room
I got the call last Christmas Eve
And they told me the news
I tried all night not to break down an' cry

As the tears rolled down my face
I felt so cold and empty
Like a lost soul out of place
And the mirror, mirror on the wall
See my smile, it fades again

Uh, give me something to believe in (uh, give me something to believe in)
If there's a Lord above
Uh, give me something to believe in, yeah (uh, give me something to believe in)
Oh, Lord arise
Sometimes I wish to God I didn't know now
Things I didn't know then
Road you gotta take me home

I drive by the homeless sleepin' on a cold dark street
Like bodies in an open grave
Underneath the broken old neon sign
Used to read, "Jesus saves"

A mile away live the rich folk
And I see how they're livin' it up
But while the poor, they eat from hand to mouth
The rich are drinkin' from the golden cup
And it just makes me wonder
Why so many lose and so few wins, ha

Give me something to believe in (uh, give me something to believe in)
Give me something to believe in (uh, give me something to believe in)
If there's a Lord above
Give me something to believe in (take the high road, give me something to believe in)
Oh, Lord arise

Give me something to believe in (take the high road, give me something to believe in)
Oh, Lord arise
Oh, give me something to believe in (take the high road, give me something to believe in)
Oh, Lord arise (take the low road)
Give me something to believe in (take the high road, give me something to believe in)
Oh, Lord arise (take the low road)

Yeah, sometimes I wish to God I didn't know now
Things I didn't know then, yeah
And give me something to believe in, yeah-yeah
