POISON lyrics : "SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN"

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

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


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


I drive by the homeless sleepin on a cold dark street
Like bodies in and open grave

Underneathe the broken old neon sign
That used to read JESUS SAVES


A mile away live the rick 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, so few win

Chorus


You take the high road
And I'll take the low road


Sometime I wish I didn't know now
The things I didn't know then


And give me something to believe in
