Something to Believe In

Words and Music by Brad Cole

They’ll be no more mercy, Baby.
And the stars tonight are droppin angels, one by one.
And if this is the end of the road,
Well it’s really not as pretty as I pictured it to be.

Oh, but it’s late, and I wait in vain and I know you ain’t commin’ back again
So silently I wave from the other side.
And I’ve tried, about everything to change the world we are livin in when
All I ever really wanted was something to believe in.

You been playin truth or consequences.
Spent the rest of your magic on a trip to the top of the world.
But the big man’s cast his fate and you’re floatin ‘buv the killin floor with
No one round to hear the cries, and no one to hear the whispers.

Oh but it’s late, and I wait in vain cause I know you aint comin back again,
We live and die but I get left behind. And we live, with these fucked up (crazy)
Dreams while God plays poker in the gallery, when all we ever really
Wanted was something to believe in.

Well what is night bet a place between the light. Where the silence calls
Your name, and the answers never came.
But in the light an essence remains of the beauty of your face,
Wrapping round me like a rainbow.

I been savin all my tips in boxes.
And pull out one to ponder on and frame my explanation.
“To the Master of Disguise, whose message fills my eyes.
Naked we come and naked we go, but the gold gets left behind.”

Oh but it’s late, and I wait in vain, cause I know you ain’t comin back again
So silently I wave from the other side.
And we tried, about everything to change the world we are livin in when
All I ever really wanted was something to believe in.

La de da da, La de dum dum da, La de dum dum yeah, yeah, yeah
