Something To Believe In – Background

“With “Something To Believe In” I wrote that late at night after a friend (James Kimo Maano, a security guard and best friend of Bret Michaels) of mine passed away a couple of Christmas’ ago.

I was at my mom’s house for Christmas when we got the call and it was late at night. That really affected,” he says as his voice trails off.

The song emphasizes several different things, such as the televangelism scandals, the thoughts of a Vietnam veteran and how he can never seem to shake the memories of “a war he can’t forget,” the recent death of a friend, and seeing the homeless on a street at night, dimly lit by a neon sign that once spelled out “Jesus Saves” and how it seems that the lessons of yesterday are forgotten on the world of today.

Well I see him on the TV
Preachin’ ’bout the promised lands
He tells me to believe in Jesus
And steals the money from my hand
Some say he was a good man
But Lord I think he sinned, yeah

Twenty-two years of mental tears
Cries a suicidal Vietnam vet
Who fought a losing war on a foreign shore
To find his country didn’t want him back

Their bullets took his best friend in Saigon
Our lawyers took his wife and kids, No regrets
In a time I don’t remember
In a war he can’t forget

He cried forgive me for
What I’ve done there
‘Cause I never meant the things I did

And give me something to believe in
If there’s a Lord above
And give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord arise

My best friend died a lonely man
In some Palm Springs hotel room
I got the call last Christmas Eve
And they told me the news

I tried all night not to break down and cry
As the tears rolled down my face
I felt so cold and empty
Like a lost soul out of place

And the mirror, mirror on the wall
Sees my smile it fades again

And give me something to believe in
If there’s a Lord above
And give me something to believe in
Oh, Lord arise

Sometimes I wish to God
I didn’t know now
The things I didn’t know then

Road, you gotta take me home

I drive by the homeless sleeping on a cold dark street
Like bodies in an open grave
Underneath the broken old neon sign
That used to read Jesus Saves

A mile away live the rich folks
And I see how they’re living it up
While the poor they eat from hand to mouth
The rich is drinkin’ from a golden cup

And it just makes me wonder
Why so many lose, so few win
