Does life slip through your fingers
Do the good times never stay
Does your good humor never linger
Does it always drift away
Are you waiting for your luck to change
Well you see, that's the coward's way out
Wasted pennies thrown into the sea
Spinning in darkness and doubts
Well it's time to join the winning team
Though you know some dreams will have to die
It's gonna take everything that you have
To believe in a lie
To believe in a lie

Are you a tourist lost in brutal places
Does your spirit hang dull and drunk and dumb
Do you stumble with the cruel faces
Across a sea of ectoplasm and chewing gum
Well you can be part of a bigger world
You can be proud to wear the uniform
You'll ring around their heads like stars
You'll be spooky as the eye of the storm
It's time to join the winning team
We have a song everyone must buy
It goes, "Everyone must stay strong
to believe in a lie"
Yeah, it's time to join the winning team
We know your spirit will never die
Because everyone becomes a ghost
When they believe in a lie

Keep our enemies in your prayers
Though justice is only for God to take
You can always hear Him in the voices we crush
You can always see Him in the faces we break
