Slightly scary song about believing in one's self but being deceived by that belief. (and drinking booze in vans)


I believe in myself
I deceive with belief
but all my rivers run so deep
and all my mountains rise so steep
I've failed before and I'll fail again
but I never break I always bend
I believe in myself
I deceive with belief
I cut both arms but they still bend
I think more thoughts than I comprehend
I wet my whistle in the back of a van
but you can't thin the blood of a monkey man
I believe in myself
I deceive with belief
I dreamt I ran into you just the other day
you said "hello" but I couldn't relate
I looked in your eyes to the back of your head
you said, "oh johnny I miss you I thought you were dead"
I believe in myself
I deceive with belief.
