Something To Believe In Lyrics





Well I see him on the TV
preachin' bout the promise land
He tells me to believe in Jesus
and steals the money from my hand
Some say he was a good man
but Lord I think he sinned, 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 friend 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 cries "Forgive me for
what I've done there
Cause I never meant
the things I did"

(chorus)
And give me something to believe in
if there's a Lord above
And give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord arise

Our 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
[- From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/p/poison-lyrics/something-to-believe-in-lyrics.html -]
like a lost soul out of place
And the mirror, mirror on the wall
sees my smile it fades again

(chorus)

Sometimes I wish to God
I didn't know now
The things I didn't know then

Road you gotta take me home

(instrumental)

I drive by the homeless
sleepin' on a cold dark street
like bodies in and open grave
Underneath the broken old neon sign
that used to read "Jesus Saves"

A mile away live the rich folk
and I see how they're living it up
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
and so few win, hey

(chorus)

(Sung simultaneously with chorus)
You take the high road
and I'll take the low road
You take the high road
and I'll take the low road

Sometime I wish to God
I didn't know now
the things I didn't know then

And give me something to believe in
yeah yeah
