"I Believe" as written by and Ervin Drake Irvin Graham....
Hallelujah! I just found Jesus
Swimming at the bottom of the bottle
I keep crawling out of
He said You look familiar but I can't place your face
I said You look like hell
and that we used to hang at my mother's request
Hallelujah! I just found Jesus
Trying to save the world through the wet hands
and mouth of a girl
She's convinced me to stay in for as long as
we both shall live
(Or until one of us gets bored)
Have I been saved?
'Cause I feel the same
Dirty and tired
Can I be saved without having shame or remorse
for what I don't believe?
I offer up my humbled soul and my broken spirit
All those things that I can't control
The intangible bullshit to you, my Lord
I believe there is no white light
Somebody's mistaken or somebody lied
I believe there is only one truth
It resonates different in me and you
so don't try to sell me yours

    General CommentThough I'm not always the first one to jump to conclusions regarding religious views throughout songs, and I normally find that songwriters only use the idea of religion in their songs in order to form metaphors, I strongly feel that the artist was referring to Christianity in this song.

    As to what the artist is truly referring to, I believe that at some point throughout his life, he found himself in a troubling situation, in which he would become angry at the idea of a higher being. Does this mean that it was towards a death? I'm not entirely sure, but I am definitely not canceling the possibility out.

    Long story short, this song is absolutely fantastic!
