Belief

I got John Mayer's new CD Continuum yesterday. Excerpt:

Is there anyone who ever remembers changing there 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
Everyone believes in how they think it ought to be
Everyone believes, 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
Everyone believes from emptiness to everything
Everyone believes, and no ones 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
Belief can
Belief can
What puts the folded flag inside his mother's hand
Belief can
Belief can

[John Mayer, "Belief"]
