I believe in mistakes and accidents
That the nature of life is chaos and confusion
That man's rules of law and order
May not stand

And I should be and be not afraid
To reach for heaven

I may think that I know
The true heart's needs
But my pride may bring me low
Unable to see
I'm no closer than yesterday
But tomorrow I may stand

And be and be not afraid
To reach for heaven

I'll see the black car cavalcade 
Lights on in the morn
I'll run fast and far away
I'll run without stopping
Til hear and feet fail
Or until I can stand

And be and be not afraid

Be and be not afraid
Be and be not afraid
To reach for heaven
