Art of belief

Thanks to Graeme Sharrock

Is there anyone whoEver remembers changing their mind fromThe paint on a sign?Is there anyone who really recallsEver breaking rank at allFor something someone yelled real loud one time
Everryone believesIn how they think it ought to beEveryone believesAnd they’re not going easily
Belief is a beautiful armorBut makes for the heaviest swordLike punching under waterYou never can hit who you’re trying for
Some need the exhibitionAnd some have to know they triedIt’s the chemical weaponFor the war that’s raging on inside
Everyone believes From emptiness to everythingEveryone believesAnd no one’s going quietly
We’re never gonna win the worldWe’re never gonna stop the warWe’re never gonna beat thisIf belief is what we’re fighting for
What puts a hundred thousand children in the sand?
What put a folded flag inside his mother’s hand?
John Mayer, “Belief” from Continuum (2006)
