Swimming beneath the continents
Swirling through the sky
Is everything I don't know yet
Still won't when I die

For I am just a little thing
Astounded by everything
The wet grass beneath my feet
The tall towers of concrete

If I was God no one would doubt it
You wouldn't need church to get the mystery
That we once knew
Is something we'd forget

I believe
I'm a totally modern boy (Turn out the lights)
I believe in something
Don't wanna be
Some evil giant's toy (When it's late at night)
I believe in something

My friend had his death foretold
When he was twenty-six years old
I say the right things, they're no help
His body slowly eats itself

If I was God no one would doubt it
No one would suspect
That there was nothing that I couldn't do

I believe in these tiny little pills (Turn out the lights)
I believe in something
Mystic words on the back of dollar bills (When it's late at night)
I believe in something

I'm swimming beneath the continents
Swirling through the air
Can't see the bones beneath my skin
But I knew that they're there

I believe that my little heart's diseased (Turn out the lights)
I believe in something
I like to think there are people just like me (When it's late at night)
I believe in something

I believe what they taught me in grade school (Turn out the lights)
History is made my handsome fools (When it's late at night)
I believe everything on television
Twelve step programs are the new religion
Gideon bibles made with rolling paper
The just prevail sooner or later
I believe I will live forever
I believe it all
I'll swear to whatever
I believe in something

    General CommentThe second bridge is incomplete; it should read "...that there was nothing I couldn't do WITH MY GREATER INTELLECT".

    Also, the correct line reading is "Gideon Bibles make good rolling paper" (meaning the pages of the bibles can be easily rolled into homemade cigarettes, both legal and not).
