Believe In You Lyrics

Believe In You by Stiff Little Fingers  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


Believe In You Don't think of tomorrow
Do it today
Let's live our lives in yesterday
The lies you're spreading
Were dangerous then
I can't watch you spread them all again
You tell me we're more equal
Than other men I know
But your advice just can't be right
And can't be left to grow

It's hard to reason
It's hard to see
Why you never learn from history
You came downtrodden
And you learned to walk
Now you want to march before you talk
You're looking for a scapegoat
A victim or a fool
And though you're free now that don't mean
You've freedom to be cruel

(Chorus)
Don't give me opinions
When you can't understand truth
I can't listen to a word you say
You haven't any proof
I believe in standing up
For what I think is true
But you hand me all this hatred
And I just can't believe in you

You're being twisted
You're being used
And you'll never see my point of view
You're kicking back now
But can't you see
That what you're kicking ain't your enemy
You're taking easy answers
Believing age-old lies
Though once oppressed you're like the rest
And just as much despised

Tell me all your problems
How you never got a break
And now you're free you're telling me
That what you see you'll take
It's all so stupid
It's all so sad
That you've had to have that life you've had

That system's gone now
Everything has changed
And there's no-one left to take the blame
You've got to start re-building
Re-wrinting you're own rules
Get it right don't end up like
Those bullet-headed fools
