Something to Believe In [Acoustic Version][*]
by Poison



I came home from school on Tuesday
To find my mother gone
Why she left I’ll never know
It seemed like they got along
One of these days I’d like to know
Just where it all went wrong

A woman torn to tears asks
Who the real criminals are
When they told her her husband died
Fighting in another country’s drug wars

She said it isn’t the kids on the streets without a dream
Shooting up the dealers smack
It’s them red tape politicians
taking all the drug lords kickbacks

Isn’t it funny what power and money
Can do to the soul of a man?

And give me something to believe in
If there’s a Lord above
Ah give me something to believe in, yeah
If there’s a lord above

I got a second job at night now
Just to help pay the bills
And there he worked for the rest of his life
Because his wife had taken him

Now he lives on a bottle of courage
He buys at the liquor store
He did his family real good
Until he couldn’t do it anymore

Whatever he found
Why he broke down
No one’s really sure…

Just needed something to believe in
If there’s a Lord above
He needed something to believe in
Oh Lord arise

Tracked some of societies race
On the old man’s face
His eyes blood red laid to waste

Well the mirror tells a different story
Then the one that’s playing in my mind
Every time I swear I’m looking younger
The more lines that I find

I guess I learned to trade youth for wisdom
And lust in for romance
It’s all written in the stages and
Phases in life’s little dance

When I want to bitch about growing old,
I think about how many never had a chance…

It gives me something to believe in
Oh Lord arise
It gives me something to believe in, yeah
Oh Lordy Lord arise
Something to believe in
Oh Lord above
It gives me something to believe in, yeah
Oh Lord arise

Sometimes I didn’t know now
Things I did know then

And give me something to believe in… yeah yeah
