Music Review - "Belief"

I hope my little reviews are encouraging you to go out and by Continuum when it hits stores on September 12. If not, maybe you should go to the website and give it a listen.

On the commentary, John Mayer says this song almost didn't make the album. It's cleverly crafted lyrically so it communicates without stepping on toes. He addresses belief systems people hold in place. "It's the chemical weapon for the war that's waging on inside." Beliefs are just what agreements or realities on has in place. Some of those realities or agreements we share with others, some we don't. Sometimes people really fight to assert the rightness of their beliefs. The goal, as I see it, would be to welcome differing viewpoints and try to gain understanding of those beliefs rather than just fighting them. We can all get along better if we try to understand one another.
