    Lyrics

    Is there anyone who ever remembers
    Changing their mind from the paint on a sign?

    Is there anyone who really recalls ever breaking rank at all
    For something someone yelled real loud one time?

    Oh, everyone believes
    In how they think it ought to be
    Oh, everyone believes
    And they're not going easily

    Belief is a beautiful armor
    But makes for the heaviest sword
    Like punching underwater
    You never can hit who you're trying for

    Some need the exhibition
    And some have to know they tried
    It's the chemical weapon
    For the war that's raging on inside

    Oh, everyone believes
    From emptiness to everything
    Oh, everyone believes
    And no one's going quietly

    CHORUS
    We're never gonna win the world
    We're never gonna stop the war
    We're never gonna beat this
    If belief is what we're fighting for

    We're never gonna win the world
    We're never gonna stop the war
    We're never gonna beat this
    If belief is what we're fighting for

    Is there anyone you can remember who
    Ever surrendered with their life on the line?

    CHORUS
    We're never gonna win the world
    We're never gonna stop the war
    We're never gonna beat this
    If belief is what we're fighting for

    We're never gonna win the world
    We're never gonna stop the war
    We're never gonna beat this
    If belief is what we're fighting for

    What puts a hundred thousand children in the sand?
    Belief can, belief can
    What puts the folded flag inside his mother's hand?
    Belief can, belief can

      John Mayer is one of the most brilliant musicians of our time. This song is fucking amazing, and I love everything that he has put out so far, and I truly believe that I always will!

      This song is just such a great commentary on what's going on in the world... it makes you sit back and think. I love it. The lyrics are so true... and John Mayer finds the perfect way to say them. *sigh*
