lyrics

A church in the forest beneath ancient trees
Before the priest he bend to his knees
Repentance was offered, the sin was forgiven
“Go and sin no more, for God is in heaven”

He must believe in something for he cannot believe in himself
He must believe in something, ooooo

A mosque in the desert upon ancient sand
Towards the sun he bowed with his hands
A prayer was whispered, the sacred words spoken
His heart was rejoicing, he felt Allah before him

He must believe in something for he cannot believe in himself
He must believe in something, ooooo

A hut in the jungle between ancient seas
A slow rhythm rises from the drum on his knees
“Give praise to the Moon God, let goodness surround him
Give praise to the Sun God and the world that’s around him

He must believe in something for he cannot believe in himself
He must believe in something, ooooo

A flat in the city beneath ancient skies
He draws a pentagram circle and closes his eyes
Invocations were chanted, the lamb was slaughtered
His heart filled with darkness as his soul he then offered

He must believe in something for he cannot believe in himself
He must believe in something, ooooo

We must believe in something for we cannot believe in ourselves
We must believe in something, ooooo
