"When I Lost My Faith" lyrics - JOHN GORKA

"When I Lost My Faith"

When I lost my faith in people
I put my trust in things
To avoid the disappointment
Trusting people brings

What trust in people brings
What I've brought myself
What I've brought to others
When they hoped for someone else

I tried to do it all myself then
Surrounded by my stuff
All I found were limitations
I could not rise above

There are gadgets and contraptions
Immaculate machines
There's a program you can download now
That will even dream your dreams

It'll even dream your dreams
For a monthly fee
Clear up your complexion
You get a hundred hours free

Possessions cannot save you
The way somebody can
When I learned to care for others
Then the boy became a man

When I lost my faith in people
I lost everything
Though I lose my independence
I am a freer man
