I’ll live my life living and die trying to find a reason
Leaving my past behind me facing a future that’s hard to see
In a world that’s forgotten me
I'll die trying heart broken and soul crying
When life seems like I'm swimming up stream
A lost one drifting further from my dreams
Through the cold nights and hard times
When the world's pressures are closing in
I'll find a reason to live and learn
Give and receive love in return
Even when the fire burns me I will not give up
To a world screaming I'm not enough

I Just want some things to believe in
Some reason for living, for breathing, for being

So many things try to keep my light locked inside
Squash my pride and circumcise my soul
Leave me naked in a world filled with hatred
Innocence tainted my heart torn open by hands
To stiff to understand
The same hands that rape the land
Pollute the skies and dehumanize the reasons to be alive
Rob me of my eyes cause the things I've seen
Plague me with bad dreams, piercing silent screams
From the lips of the unseen children wondering
What happen to them, forgotten when
Where, when, why, how did this all begin
Some say it started with original sin
And we've been falling ever since
Progressing in ways that never make sense

I just want something to believe in
Some reason for living, for breathing, for being X2

I just want something to believe in
A future brighter then the one that I'm seeing
I'm feeling lost, life's loosing meaning
Crying out what's the reason

I just want something to believe in some reason
For living, for breathing, for being X2

Where searching for answers what's the reason for being
Deep inside knowing we are the ones we are the reason
And we will not hide from those who try to smother our light
Shinning is our birthright
If nothing else is clear this is the one thing
Even if it’s the last note we sing, or smile we bring
