John Mayer - Belief Lyrics
Every so often, a song comes along with lyrics that really strike a chord with how I feel about certain issues. The song "Belief" on John Mayers latest album is one of those, and so, here are the lyrics.
Is there anyone who
Ever remembers changing their mind from
The paint on a sign?
Is there anyone who really recalls
Ever breaking rank at all
For something someone yelled real loud one time.
In how they think it ought to be
And they're not going easily
Belief is a beautiful armor
But makes for the heaviest sword
Like punching under water
You never can hit who you're trying for
Some need the exhibition
And some have to know they tried
It's the chemical weapon
For the war that's raging on inside
From emptiness to everything
And no one's going quietly
We're never gonna win the world
We're never gonna stop the war
We're never gonna beat this
If belief is what we're fighting for
What puts a hundred thousand children in the sand?
What puts the folded flag inside his mother's hand?
