Lyrics

Well I see him on the TV

Preachin' 'bout the promised lands

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"



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



And give me something to believe in

If there's a Lord above

And give me something to believe in, oh Lord



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 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



And give me something to believe in

And give me something to believe in

If there's a Lord above

And give me something to believe in, oh Lord

And give me something to believe in

And give me something to believe in



You take the high road

And I'll take the low road

And give me something to believe in

And give me something to believe in

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, yeah
