I believe that reality's gone 
Disillusion's real 
I believe that morality's gone 
And there's nothing to feel 

If you take the sacred things 
The things that we hold dear 
Empty promise is all you'll find 
So give me something 

Something to believe in 
I believe in a changing of the guard 
Put our feet on the ground 
See it happen in your own backyard 

Everything breaks down 
Do you accept what you are told 
Without even thinking 
Throw it all and make your own 

And give me something 
Something to believe in 
Where they lead 
You will follow 

Well I guess that's just the way it goes 
And if you look away 
You'll be doing what they say 
An if you look alive 

You'll be singled out and tried 
If you take home anything 
Let it be your will to think 
The more cynical you become 

The better off you'll be
