I believe
I just want to believe
So I Believe.
What else is there, everybody believes?
I can believe anything that I want to believe.
I'm not fake, I have common sense
And I'm not like everyone else.
I have never seen what I believe, but it's not fake.
How do I know? Because I believe.
Logic, reason, yeah, yeah, I have those
But I can believe what I want to believe.
What I want is what is true
It's true because I want it to be.
It's true because I was told it was true.
I know I wasn't there,
But my parents believe it and why would they lie?
My friends believe it, so why would I question it?
It has to be true, it just has to be true, so I believe it.
Look around you, they told me he "created" it,
So since it's there, it must be true.
I wasn't there and I don't really know, but I have faith.
So I believe, it has to be true, it must be true, why would they all lie?
I believe, I BELIEVE, because of the "Facts" because of the "Evidences".
Well, really because I WANT TO,
Because I FEEL it is true and because I KNOW it is true!
No on can change my mind, well, unless everyone else changes their mind!
Hey, you want to know what I believe now?
I believe, "I'M BETTER THEN YOU!"

And

I believe, "YOUR RACE is inferior!"

Why?

Look at the "Evidences" and people I know believe it too,
So I believe!
