I Believe in Dinosaurs

by mckavanaugh

i believe in dinosaurs
i believe in cars
i believe the apostles
not the way things sometimes are
i believe in apples
i believe in peace
i believe in bondage
i believe in release
i believe in going crazy
i believe in going straight
but i don't believe in listening to you

i believe in freedom
i believe in life
gonna raise me some children
gonna have me a wife
i believe in missionaries
i believe in being sent
seen so many people burdened
broken torn and bent
i believe in the everafter
i believe in more than this
but i don't believe in listening to you

i believe in feeling pleasure
i believe in feeling pain
i want to believe in America
and so many waves of grain
i believe in being lovers
i believe in being friends
i believe in dinosaurs
there i've said it once again
i believe in countless stars above
and so many grains of sand
but i don't believe in listening to you

i believe in so much hatred
i believe in so much love
i believe there is a devil
i believe in God above
i believe in the rainbow
i believe in being blue
i believe in being different
i'll be me and you be you
i believe in being hungry
i believe in being full
but i don't believe in listening to you

i believe in the summer
i believe in the fall
please tell me the truth
and i'll try to believe it all
i believe in being happy
i believe in being sad
i believe that somehow some people
like to walk away mad
i believe in being open
i believe in being true
but i don't believe in listening to you

i believe in mercy
i believe in love
it's swift as an eagle
it's gentle as a dove
i believe in the spirit
i believe in the soul
i believe in innervision
i believe in self control
i believe in feeding the hungry
i believe in rock and roll
but i don't believe in listening to you

i believe in joni mitchell
i believe in joan of arc
and i still believe in jesus
is that you, judas, there in the dark?
i believe in working with my hands
in reaping seeds i've sowed
i believe in slim pickings
i believe in the motherlode
i believe in having heroes
both maculated and pure
but i don't believe in listening to you
