Lyrics to "Something to Believe In" - Poison

 

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

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

 

 

He gets it.

Cool. That was my deconversion song too. Years ago I sat in a parking lot listening to it and cried like a child. Brett seems like a really stand up guy in real life as far as I can tell too.
