Ugly Duckling

Ugly Duckling - I Want To Believe

rate me

Yeah yeah, I've heard it before

It's just a bunch more words that I'm sure to ignore

This time I'll need evidence, you know exhibit A

And if it's secret, leak it, give it away

You'll drop hints, but never a fact

And it's a trap, gonna have to do better than that

I don't wanna be a fool, I'm feeling naive

So please write it all down, leave it easy to read

In clear, concise, nice plain English

I get tripped up trying to distinguish

The pimp from the pastor, meek from the moocher

So tell me then, are you a friend or a user

Who sets a trap like a web to a fly

So come right and exact, look me dead in the eye

And don't sell me, promise me, tell me

Honestly, why

[Chorus:]

Can you give me some kind of sign

A meaning defined so I can believe

Can you give me a way to be sure

I can trust in your word

Cause that's what I need

Can you give me a reason for change

You'll need to explain so I can believe

Can you give me a moment of truth

And indisputable proof cause that's what I need

Because I wanna believe, I wanna believe

Because I wanna believe, I wanna believe

Ok I made my point, I'll need to see it to believe it

And anyway, faith is so inconvenient

Dealing with the guilt, feeling hypocritical

I just end up being sick and miserable

Life's fast, I need to try to maximize

Self gratify, till I collapse and die

What then, I don't wanna think about it

It's too deep, I gotta keep my head clouded

So give me entertainment and happy pills

And we'll pretend it's all sunshine and daffodils

It's what I've done since I was two years old

And if it's true you can lose your soul

Well I just laugh at your statement of facts

Don't say absolute, you'll get taken to task

I don't really wanna change and my life is in vain

Then I ask

[Chorus]

Because I wanna believe, but I don't wanna believe

Because I wanna believe, but I don't wanna believe

I wanna believe, but I don't wanna believe

Einstein take me on outta here
