"Rival" as written by and Peter B Hayes Robert Been....
I got different debates, my eyes don't survive
I'm living with the loss and we're livin' in denial
Good thing you question who's gonna carry on
There's no one to make then there's no one who can play along

I need a rival I need a rival
I'm tired of the fools I'm killin' for survival
I need a rival i need a rival
I found my soul and I set it on fire
I'm nothing like you, I'm not the innocent
I'm just a sign, it's all gone wrong

We're nothing like you, we're not the innocent
We're just a sign, it's all gone wrong
Well I got the lip, but there's no one available
I've seen at all before, and firing up a sandstorm
I go to places no one should ever go
I'm living like I knew what the hell I was looking for

I need a rival I need a rival
I'm tired of the fools I'm killing for survival
I need a rival I need a rival
I found my soul and I set it on fire

My souls on fire I live in superstition, my souls on fire I carry on the fight
My souls on fire I live in superstition, my souls on fire I carry on the fight
My souls on fire I live in superstition, my souls on fire I carry on the fight
My souls on fire I live in superstition, my souls on fire I carry on the fight

We're nothing like you, we're not the innocent
We're just a sign, it's all gone wrong

I'm nothing like you, I'm not the innocent
I'm just a sign it's all gone wrong

I need a rival I need a rival
I'm tired of the fools and killin' for survival
I need a rival I need a rival
I found my soul and I set it on fire

    My InterpretationSeems to me that the line "I'm living like I knew what the hell i was looking for" is a very interesting riff of of "I still haven't found what I'm looking for". One of the band members father's was in the 80's band The Call, who I heard somewhere along the way opened for U2 on one of their early US tours.
