Lyrics:

1)
Do I need to be someone who stands
in front of the crowd raising his hands
and praying praising god aloud
feeling righteous, superior and proud

Do I have to kneel down and pray
and show my gratitude 5 times a day
and visit that pure holy place
to earn forgiveness for my mistakes

And do I have to belong?
isn't it enough to know right from wrong?

refrain
I'm a believer
not in guilt nor in cult or any kind of bait
I'm a believer
Religion should not spread indirect hate

I believe in love
I believe in mercy
in forgiveness
in simplicity
I believe in life
and what it offers
I believe in love
and in lovers

But keep me away from your religion
Allow me to make my own decision

2)
Do I have the right to manipulate peace
and spread terror to fight terrorists
can I decide that it's war
and forget what I was fighting for

and in the name of purifying earth
millions die for billions worth
slaves have more sophisticated names
you gotta be politically correct in your game

Do I have to be strong?
Isn't it enough to know right from wrong?

refrain
I'm a believer
I'm neither democrat or republican (here it should be "neither democrat nor republican"
I'm a believer
not in leaders but in the strength of the common man

I believe in freedom
when it's not abused
in people's right
to elect and choose
I believe in earth
not in countries
in a universal home
with no boundaries

So keep me away from politics
for I'm too clean to mess up with


Bridge
And hand in hand we stand united
and diversity is welcomed and invited
so be yourself, be black be white
be muslim, jewish, who's to say what's right
just don't impose your beliefs on me
You don't know what I've been through so don't judge me

refrain
Because I'm a believer
in an equal opportunity
I'm a believer
and my religion is humanity
