Something To Believe In
Poison

Lyrics

Well I see him on the TV,
preachin' 'bout the promised land.
He tells me 'believe in Jesus,' steals the money from my hand.
Some say he was a good man,
but Lord, I think he sinned.
Yeah, yeah.
With twenty-two 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.
The bullets took his best friend in Saigon, our lawyers took his wife, his kids with no regrets.
In a time I don't remember, in a war he can't forget.
He cries 'Forgive me for what I've done there,
'cause I never meant the things I did.'
And give me something to believe in.
If there's a Lord above.
A-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 and 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,
sees my smile, it fades again.
A-give me something to believe in.
If there's a Lord above.
A-give me something to believe in, yeah.
Oh Lord, arise.
Sometimes I wish to God I didn't know now, the I didn't know then.
Road, you gotta take me home.
I drive by the homeless sleeping on the 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 living it up.
Oh while the poor, they eat from hand to mouth, the rich is drinkin' from a golden cup.
And it just makes me wonder,
why so many lose,
why so few win.
Ha!
Give me something to believe in.
And give me something to believe in.
If there's a Lord above.
A-give me something to believe in.
Oh Lord, arise.
And give me something to believe in.
Oh Lord, arise.
And give me something to believe in.
Oh Lord, arise.
And give me something to believe in.
Oh Lord, arise.
Yeah sometimes I wish I didn't know now, the things I didn't know then.
Yeah.
And give me something to believe in, yeah.
