Lyrics

Will I see him on the TV Preachin 'bout the Promised Lands? He tells me to believe in Jesus And steals the money from my hands 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 friends 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 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 (Give me something to believe in) If there's a Lord above And give me something to believe in, yeah (Give me something to believe in) Oh, Lord arise 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 and so few win Hah! Give me something to believe in (Give me something to believe in) And give me something to believe in, yeah (Give me something to believe in) If there's a Lord above And give me something to believe in (You take the high road) (Give me something to believe in) Oh, Lord arise (And I'll take the low road) And give me something to believe in (You take the high road) (Give me something to believe in) (And I'll take the low road) And give me something to believe in (You take the high road) (Give me something to believe in) If there's a Lord above (And I'll take the low road) And give me something to believe in (You take the high road) (Give me something to believe in) (And I'll take the low road)
