Something to Believe In

I need something to believe in
I’ve lost all my faith by now
This world is a let down

If science is going to prove me wrong
And Billie Joe goes on
About how they’re full of themselves
And some fictional book
I just need to look
Up and see someone’s there

I just need to know
That someone really cares
Nobody down here bothers
They only holler
Scream, and fight
All day and all night

I can’t run away
And leave him behind
I need somewhere to go
But I don’t know
If someone’s up there
To catch me when I fall
Stretch out his arms
Or send an angel for me
I want to see the wings
And the halo

Sweep me up
Take me up there
Away from here
Soothe my fear
I won’t live forever, will I?
Scream his silent cry
When he dies, where does he go?
In heaven, does it snow?
Will I be able to play ice hockey
And follow my Penguins

I need the answers, and
A little more
Like some truth, maybe some hope
That someone’s up there
To catch me when I fall
Stretch out his arms
Or send an angel for me
I want to see the wings
And the halo

Sweep me up
Take me up there
Away from here

It's awesome. I love the idea behind it... And the Billie Joe reference. It flows well, and has a point.

Billie Joe is a reference to Billie Joe Armstrong, the lead singer of Green Day. Green Day's latest album had a few songs challenging religion...
