We Must Believe (Better Than a Thousand)

Look at his hair, look at his clothes Jump to conclusions, but we'll never know Look at his past, look at his skin Never knowing the person, but still we condemn Everyone says "This guy's going nowhere" Do you think these words will help him grow? What is the cost to encourage another? Human potential-we'll never know WE MUST BELIEVE-no one has to be a slave to destiny WE MUST BELIEVE-in everyone's potentiality WE MUST BELIEVE-yes, I believe in your ability Look at his paycheck, look at his home Study externals, but still he's unknown Look at his social circle of friends Base your opinions on how much he spends I won't condemn a person for what they were Or what they are today We must see each soul as greater As a sculptor sees a lump of clay WE MUST BELIEVE-no one has to be a slave to destiny WE MUST BELIEVE-in everyone's potentiality WE MUST BELIEVE-yes, I believe in your ability YES I BELIEVE ! Caught in a crowd of people that think the joy of life Is to sit around and criticize And laugh and carry on like nothing's wrong But nothing's right Caught in a crowd of people, and it's strangling me Of a better judgement, because I whole-heartedly believe That people can change Change
