Believe

      I don't believe in eternal flames, or what people call divine
      I don't believe in innocence, but really, I don't mind
      I don't believe in happiness, and I don't believe in pain
      I don't think that there is any more, than chemicals in my brain

        but I believe in me - and I believe in you -
        and I believe that if we try, there's nothing we can't do

      I don't believe in right or wrong, don't dream of hope or faith
      I don't believe that locking doors will ever make us safe.
      I don't believe in vengeance, and I don't believe in spite,
      and I don't believe that it's a sin, if you want to spend the night

        but I believe in me - and I believe in you -
        and I believe that if we try, there's nothing we can't do

      I don't believe in abstinence, we should all be getting laid
      some are young and some are old, and sometimes we get paid...
      I don't believe romance is dead, every day's your Valentine's
      and I don't believe fools fall in love, but it happens all the time!

        but I believe in me - and I believe in you -
        and I believe that I will try to play guitar for you!

      I don't believe in elves or ghosts, don't believe in magic spells
      I don't believe in fate or prophets, paradise or hell
      I don't believe the earth is beaten, just bloody, black, and blue
      And promises are lies not facts, in time they'll come untrue

        but I believe in me - and I believe in you -
        and I believe that if we try, there's nothing we can't do

      I don't believe your gods'll save you, that ain't what praying's for,
      and I don't believe we'll find a cure, while the rich still eat the poor
      I don't believe in nations, or their wars that I despise
      Young men die for old men's dreams, is that what we call wise?

        but I believe in me - and I believe in you -
        and I believe that if we try, there's nothing we can't do
