Believer

 

“There are no miracles, today.”

That’s what they say,

but they’re inclined to lie

and I don’t believe them, anyway.

 

Can’t take away

what they never gave.

Maybe Faith,

maybe I just don’t like the way

they lie about everything.

 

Bend reality with the lies they tell.

Try to convince us

our Faith is impossible.

While living lives

beyond our wildest dreams.

There’s something obscene

about staring up at the sky,

while making others blind.

 

It happens all the time.

Another loses hope,

and ends their life.

Run out of rope,

no one throws a line.

We’re all hanging on so tight.

 

If we had Faith,

we might find a way,

to let go,

to save our souls,

before we slip away.

 

“There are no miracles, today.”

That’s what they say,

but they’re inclined to lie

and I don’t believe them, anyway.
