stop believin’ lyrics – oz

when you listen to the rumours today don’t you ever
think they tell lies?
when the politician speaks to you can see the pain in
his eyes?
if you trust a man back he’ll stab you in the back
and the wheel keeps turning on
just be prepared for an attack
and the heat keeps burning on
when the priest says: “i shall set your free”
can you see his hand grabbin’ cash?
or the generals in uniforms awaiting the final blast
if you break the law the law breaks you
and the wheel keeps turning on
a cute girl whispers: “i love you”
and the heat keeps burning on
these things are starting to drive me crazy
do you think it’s really too far gone?
they sold us one too many dirty lies
what do you do?
you gotta stop believin’
stop believin’

when the soldier fights for his fatherland can you hear
his desperate cries?
and behold the gamblers of the war, it doesn’t matter
if he dies
if he meets his end on the battlefield(??)
he will scream in agony
he was justified by our war machine
he would have stood his destiny

these things are starting to drive me crazy
do you think it’s really too far gone?
they sold us one too many dirty lies
what do you do?
you gotta stop believin’
stop believin’
