"Someone to Believe" as written by and Greg/gurewitz Graffin....
Dark, frozen, hibernation held at bay
As your mind, left behind, lost another day
But finally there's someone to believe

Anti-social boredom is all the rage
But the time comes when you gotta turn the page
And then finally there's someone to believe
And now you walk with confidence and ease
And there's no call to sell your soul
Or confess or drop down to your knees

Who, what, or where made you change your mind?
Doesn't matter anymore 'cause you've seen a sign
And now finally there's someone to believe

Searching for the answer's a lonely quest
But the act is liable to bring out your best
And then finally there's someone to believe
And now you have a purpose to proceed
And you find out the baggage that you discarded,
You didn't even need

No one can deny a return to form
Irrespective of the morass, shame, and scorn
But then finally there's someone to believe
Ready to emerge and direct your fate
As the self-determination radiates
Because finally there's someone to believe
And now you walk with confidence and ease
And it feels like the spring equinox after a long winter's sleep

Finally, there's someone to believe

    General CommentI believe that this song is about putting your faith in yourself, and finding your own answer.

    "searching for the answer is a lonely quest/ the act is liable to bring out your best."

    Believe in yourself and what YOU can do, not what someone says they can do for you.

    General CommentGreat song. Anyone notice how the guitar (particularly in the first 10-20 seconds) sounds almost exactly like the guitar riff to the Germs' Lexicon Devil?

    General CommentThe someone to believe is yourself. Once you finally figure out what you think, you'll walk with confidence and ease and you don't have to sell your soul or confess. You know what you believe and this gives you purpose. Great song.

    My InterpretationThe first step to getting anything done is to believe in yourself. Yeah, I agree Johnny and zedubal. While there's not too much else to say about this, I'd like to point out the clever line:

    "And you find out the baggage that you discarded you didn't even need"

    This line is referring to letting go of EMOTIONAL baggage, and how constantly worrying is not going to help you move forward.

    Amazing song

    General CommentBefore I start Il just state my stance, I do believe Baraque Obama is the best thing we could have hoped to get.. as what a leader should be.

    If I didn't know better I'd say this song gives implications of the time Baraque came onto the scene and people started coming out of the dead slums of depression when scorcher bush's reign was up and we actually had something to look up to. And from there go figure from the lyrics..

    Yes to be a world leader you can't be a saint. you have to live in the real world and play by the rules to make change. If you don't like obama just cuz you hear what everyone else says, trying to be cynical..

    you might be an idiot. decide for yourself who you'd rather be leading us
