"Beliefs" as written by and John/spiteri Mc Elhone....
I watch you gather round and pray
It's something I can feel
I hear you chant every other day
I think it's not quite real
Covered up so close
So as not to see
Are you happy, are you happy this way

Stop and look around the world
So many different ways to see ourselves
Is it right or wrong

To put your beliefs on me
To put your beliefs on me
I don't want to live that way

A distance that is more than miles
Such a long, long way
It's fine for men to be westernised
Will a woman ever see that day
Maybe, maybe it's not for me to understand
Do you think, do you think
Do you think it's better that way

To put your beliefs on me
To put your beliefs on me
I don't want to live that way

To put your beliefs on me
To put your beliefs on me
I don't want to live that way

Stop and look around the world
So many different ways to see ourselves
Is it right or wrong

To put your beliefs on me
To put your beliefs on me
I don't want to live that way

To put your beliefs on me
To put your beliefs on me
I don't want to live that way

    General CommentThis is a very powerful song; I think the lyrics are fairly self-explanatory, but to me it's about recognizing that everything is subjective and we shouldn't force our opinions on others (i.e. tolerance). Although it was written in the early 90's, it definitely applies to current affairs.
