SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN

Poison

Will i see him on the tv
preachin' 'bout the promised 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 and kids,
no regrets
in a time i don't remember
in a war he can't forget
he cried "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
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
Chorus
sometimes i wish to god
i didn't know now
the things i didn't know then
road you gotta take me home
Solo
I drive by the homeless sleeping on
a cold dark street
like bodies in an open grave
underneath the broken old neon sign
that used to read
jesus saves
a mile away live the rich folks
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
sometimes i wish to god
i didn't know now
the things i didn't know then
and give me something to believe in
