    Fort Worth Saturday Night

    $912.00 dollars in my pocket, I just cashed my check

    Four shots of Cuervo, I’m playing with a loaded deck

    I can draw aces anytime, make them disappear

    Tonight I'll do a vanishing act with a case of Shiner beer

     

    I’m drawn to a party crowd like a moth to the neon light

    Another day in paradise; another Fort Worth Saturday night

     

    Rousting a rig in the oil field, it’s 113 in the shade

    When my shift is over, man, I hope I’m getting laid…that’s right!

    My party girls at Billy Bob’s dance like floating-souls

    I’m airborn on mescaline; the band is hot as glowing coals

     

    Tonight is a hard-edged crowd; I might have to fight

    Another day in paradise, another Fort Worth Saturday night

     

    I could have stayed in college; a few semesters I’d been done

    I dropped accounting twice, it was time to have some fun; Have some fun!

    I headed west in my F-150; 12 cold beers in a pack

    Hired on the first rig I saw; I am not going back

     

    I love a party town; Fort Worth parties right

    Another day in paradise, another Fort Worth Saturday night

    Go to Texas

    Cold gray skies, pelting rain

    as I stepped off the plane

    That was two years ago

    There's damn little to show

    Pushing my songs around

    this old, cold, New York town

    It's wearing me down

    It's worn me down

     

    Truck is loaded, said my goodbyes,

    Heading south, with the sunrise

    I know a place where the good life is

    They may all go to hell

    I will go to Texas

    I will go to Texas

     

    When I get home first thing I'll do,

    Get dressed up, call on you

    A Blanket, a bottle of wine

    Undress you slowly in the moon light

    Shadows melt as the fireflies

    reveal the heat in your eyes

    In our reprise, hold you till sunrise

     

    Truck is loaded, said my goodbyes,

    Heading south, with the sunrise   

    I know a place where the good life is

    They may all go to hell

    I will go to Texas

    I will go to Texas

     

    Spend my days in the warm sunshine

    Texas is a state of mind

    It's there, our lives renewed

    My heart is forever true

    I give it to you, it is just for you

     

    Truck is loaded, said my goodbyes,

    Heading south, as the crow flies

    I know a place where the good life is

    They may all go to hell

    I will go to Texas

    I will go to Texas

    Proud (To Be Dysfunctional)

    Proud (To Be Dysfunctional)

    I am proud to be dysfunctional

    Why should I not be?

    I’ve been kicked around by this thing called life,

    Since before the age of three

    I’ve got an issue with my issues

    I think I’ll be OK

    So I’m standing tall;

    Warts and all, upon my feet of clay

     

    My father was manic-depressive,

    He would not take his pills

    He could beat those “crazy doctors”

    In a test of wills

    He never was a pious man

    I can hear him to this day:

    Yelling, “Get up damn it, we’re going to church;

    Your mother wants to pray”

     

    That’s why I’m proud to be dysfunctional

    I hope that you are too

    This world is such a messy place

    I get hopeless and confused

    I’m dealing with my imperfections;

    I hate to hear the news:

    Jesus was the last perfect man;

    I guess the rest of us are screwed

     

    I’m living in a Prozac-Nation;

    Full of anger, guilt and shame

    At least I know when I screw up,

    There is someone else to blame

    My parents and “the system" made me what I am

    I blame Woodstock, Nixon, the Missile-Crisis,

    And the War in Vietnam

     

    I am proud to be dysfunctional

    Why should I not be?

    I’ve been kicked around by this thing called life,

    Since before the age of three

    I’ve got an issue with my issues;

    But I think I’ll be OK

    So I’m standing tall;

    Warts and all, upon my feet of clay.

     

    Enlightenment will light up your life,

    If you can learn to love the real you

    That’s why I’m proud to be dysfunctional

    I hope that you are too

    The Finish Line

    Saw 68’ Mustang that reminded me of me,

    Back when I was young

    A red V-8, chrome racing wheels,     

    Blazing in the sun

    I've driven hard and fast through this life

    A little worse for the wear                             

    My heart beats strong, though the road is long         

    There’s still more love to share,        

    There’s still more love to share

     

    I'm not an old racing car

    I won't turn to rust

    When I reach the finish line

    Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

     

    The Junkyard is not my fate

    I was built to roll

    My spirit lives for the race

    Eight spark plugs fire my soul

    I've got a dent in my right fender,

    Four speed on the floor

    One thing I know about time,

    Give me a just little bit more

     

    I'm not an old racing car

    That slowly turns to rust

    When I reach the finish line

    Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

    Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

     

    Those that have gone before us,

    Are closer than we know

    Their energy never dies

    They live on in our hearts, our minds and souls

     

    We’re not old racing cars

    That slowly turn to rust

    When we reach our finish line

    Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

    Ashes to ashes, dust to dust

     

    The final sound that you'll hear,

    Is not a rusted horn

    It’s the God-like presence of your soul;

    Returning and reborn,

    Returning and reborn

     

    Saw 68’ Mustang that reminded me of me,

    Back when I was young

    Take Me Home

    It's morning now;

    I give myself over to the day

    It's the dreams again,

    That make me know I've lost my way

     

    I dreamed you were rising from the lake;

    Merging with the sky

    I had many reasons,

    But I've lost my “why”

     

    I crossed the desert through trackless sand,

    With blistered lips, shouted into the wind

    There was no return “Hello”

     

    Take me home

    I don’t want to walk this path alone

    I don’t want to soar, if I soar alone

    Gather me in your arms, take me home

     

    My dreams lay scattered;

    Like diamonds strewn across the sand

    I stooped to gather;

    They slipped through my hands

     

    I scaled the summit through the jagged snow;

    Hands bloody, bones ached with cold

    Shout across the valley;

    There was no return "Hello"

     

    Take me home

    I don’t want to walk this path alone,

    I don’t want to soar, if I soar alone

    Gather me in your arms, take me home

     

    I crossed the ocean on a battered raft;

    Spirit broken, my heart bereft

    I prayed your name

    There was a return “Hello”

     

    Take me home

    I don’t want to walk this path alone,

    I don’t want to soar, if I soar alone

    Gather me in your arms, take me home

    Gather me in your love and take me home

    Gather me in your light and take me home

    Gone Gone Gone

    My family’s all dead; the money is gone, gone, gone

    How do I get by with no trust fund?

    I’m tired of working; want to have some fun,

    Buy a yacht; chase the sun

    My family’s all dead; the money is gone, gone, gone

     

    Grand dad’s brother was a very shrewd business man

    Took the family fortune and made a plan

    He bought oil wells, junk-bonds and cars

    Hung out with X-rated movie stars

    Died without a will, now the money’s stuck in Switzerland, damn

     

    Mamas’ last marriage went straight downhill

    When she died she left me in her will

    Old-man grabbed the cash; he never looked back

     A crooked lawyer, it didn’t last

    He turned to Jesus, to forgive his past

     

    What am I supposed to do?

    Now I’ve got no silver spoon

    My life should not turn out this way

     

    My uncle was rich, owned a chain of liquor stores

    He liked my aunt; he really loved cards and whores

    He carried a pearl-handled 45

    If you tried to rob him, you didn’t leave alive

    He drank all the profits, then he up and died

     

    I need some cash to pay some bills

    Now I’m in no one’s will

    My Family’s all dead and the money is gone, gone, gone

    It’s gone, gone, gone; it's all gone

                                                                                                                      

    My Family’s all dead and the Money is

    gone, gone, gone; it's all gone

    Marijuana Saved My Relaionship

    I had a lawyer in my speed dial; a new place all picked out

    A friend with a pickup truck; I was getting out

    Her words were ripping through the air, like bullets to my heart

    It's time to cut my losses; make a brand-new start

    As I drove away, I fired up a “J” and inhaled really deep

    Thought about the good times; the stuff I wanted to keep

    In a few miles I started to smile; I was on a better trip

     

    That's how marijuana saved my relationship

     

    I cruised to the liquor store, bought her favorite wine

    Next stop was the flower shop, I was feeling fine

    A few more tokes along the way, I was flying high

    When I got home, she was crying alone,

    It was a heart-rending site

     

    I presented my peace offering; touched her on the blouse

    She grabbed me in her special way, we made love on the couch

    In the afterglow of our love we shared a big fat spliff...

     

    That's how marijuana saved my relationship

     

    It was cheaper than a lawyer; my friends thought I was hip

    That's how marijuana saved my relationship

     

    That's how marijuana saved my relationship

    Inhale/Exhale (I love ya baby)

    Walk With Me Another Mile

       Walk With Me Another Mile

    Let’s go, we need to talk

    I thought it out last night

    We can leave while everyone's sleeping

    Meet me down the road at first light

     

    Your mother said:

    “This will never work; a gentle girl, a wild boy”

    There are feelings we’ve been sharing;

    Two hearts full of love and joy

                                     

    All I want is to make you happy

    All I need is to see you smile

    I’ll be beside you whenever you call me

    Walk with me another mile 

    Walk with me another mile

     

    Some times the road will seem endless

    If we quit, it’s back to the start

    The journey must still be taken;

    Only then, with a wounded heart

      

    All I want is to hold you closer

    I’ll be beside you through all of life’s trials

    I’ll be the North Star in your dark night

    Walk with me another mile

    Walk with me another mile

     

    We can make the journey together

    I promise, for the rest of my life

    You’ll be the one I pledge my heart to

    You’ll be the one I will call my wife

     

    All I want is to pass the seasons;

    Growing closer all the while,

    Our love will deepen as we grow older

    Walk with me another mile (4x)

    Dangerous Curves

    Swore you would be faithful,

    For all of your days

    There’s no love at home,

    Your heart is changing its ways   

    You stopped at the bar,

    For one quick drink

    A woman is looking at you,

    You’re starting to think 

     

    Should you talk to her,

    Before you lose your nerve?

    You better be careful,

    You're heading for dangerous curves

     

    You start to wonder:

    Do you still have what it takes?

    It's been to many years,

    Since you’ve been in the race

    Should you turn back,

    And just call it a day?

    Those questions could haunt you,

    For the rest of your days

     

    Brakes are failing,

    You’re starting to swerve

    Warning signs say:

    You’re heading for dangerous curves

     

    How did you get here?

    Where was the wrong turn?

    It’s like driving at night,

    With no headlights on

    You’re losing control,

    Heading for Dangerous curves.

               

    Swore you would be faithful,

    For all of your days.

    The love you needed,

    Just slipped away

    Now your heart is pounding,

    You’re heading for dangerous curves

    Hot Monkey Love

    Hot monkey love,

    It’s like a disease

    I heard it through the grapevine,

    As I was swinging thru the trees

    There’s no such thing as enough

    Once you get a taste for hot monkey love

     

    You’re an organ grinders dream, baby

    With your bows and tattoos

    My friends see you coming,

    They start spreading the news

    The tabloids say you’re back in town

    I can’t wait to see the pictures of you, monkeyin’ around

                             

    You can call me Tarzan

    You can call me Jane                 

    You can call me Cheetah, baby

    Just let me do my thang

     

    If you get out of your cage

    I know just what you will do

    You’ll go hang with the boys, down at the local Zoo

    When a crowd gathers around

    You and the boys will start to monkey around

    Hot monkey love

    She Comes to Me

    She comes to me,

    She’s ready and she’s radiant

    She touches me,

    And my world grows still

    I know she will be with me

    Her arms tight, holding me

    I know I’ll be released

     

    When she comes to me (4x)

     

    Through the years,

    We’ve seen our share of hard times

    The joy and pain are etched upon my soul

    Old wounds have begun to heal

    A new light has shown the way                                  

    Real love is mine again

     

    When she comes to me (4x)

     

    The pain and all my fears,

    Have faded with the night

    Dreams, love, and hope,

    Shine in the new day’s light

     

    When she comes to me (4x)

    She Likes to Drive

    She told me that she loved me

    She said “Let's go for a ride”

    I put down the top and I hopped in by her side

    She said “You give directions honey, I like to drive”

     

    She was built like a ‘Vette

    She was driving a new Thunderbird

    Had a red-hot engine underneath her hood

    We were out of control, as she went blasting through the curves

    We roared across the desert at 110,

    As the white lines began to blur

    She hit overdrive, passed a highway patrol

    I was holding on to her

    (Scoot the seat back honey keep your eyes on the road)

     

    She drove me to ecstasy in New Mexico

    As we rode across the great divide

    Her long hair streamed in the bright moonlight

    God, I'll never forget that ride

     

    Then I woke up alone,

    In a place I've never been before

    I threw open the window,

    As I heard that big engine roar

    She said “I'm living for fast love, it keeps me alive”

    She blew me a kiss in the cool morning light

    She said “You give good directions honey, but I like to drive”

    Workin' Too Hard

    It’sfive in the morning

    I’m getting up; even when I’m hungover

    I still show upwork lots of overtime;

    The boss don’t care;

    All I’ve got to show is more gray hair

    It's hot in this place, the work is back-breaking

    I’m working too hard for the money I’m making

         

    Working too hard (all I do is work, work)

    Yeah I’m working too hard (all I do is work, work)

    I’m doing all the giving; they are doing all the taking

    I’m working too hard, for the money I’m making

     

    My second wife left me for some high-rolling guy

    Now I’m two months behind on the double wide

    IRS takes more than their fair share

    Master Card gets the rest;

    We will call it fair and square

    I work like a dog, it's real frustrating

    I’m working too hard for the money I’m making

     

    Working too hard; (all I do is work, work.)

    Yeah I’m working too hard; (all I do is work, work.)

    I’m doing all the giving; they're doing all the taking.            

    I’m working too hard for the money I’m making.

     

    At the end of the tunnel, there might be some light

    If I win the lotto this Saturday night;

    I’ll buy a great big Motor home, and cruise out of here

    I’ll eat Lobster everyday;

    Drink Champaign with my beer.

     

    Life’s too short to be this heart breaking

    I’m working too hard, for the money I’m making

                           

    Working too hard; (all I do is work, work)

    Yeah I’m working too hard; (all I do is work, work)

    I’m doing all the giving; they're doing all the taking           

    I’m working too hard for the money I’m making.

     

    When you think about your job and your head starts aching,

    That’s when you're working too hard for the money you're making

    Other Side

    He said, “I think God hates me”

    He didn’t look up

    Flicked his cigarette ash

    "Brother, they are carving me up”

     

    “I need another operation,

    It's a waste of time”

    “I’ll be checking out early,

    I’m dying a piece at a time”

     

    You’re my brother, when you are gone

    There will be hole in my life

    If you’ve got to go, it will break my heart

    I'll see on the other side

    The other side

     

    “I can’t take the needles”

    “The doctors won’t look me in the eye”

    “The nurses are the angels,

     they get me through the hellish nights”

     

    “I’ve got a losing hand of cards here”

    “Some days I just want to fold”

    “But I got to stay in the game;

    My daughter's only sixteen years old”

     

    You’re my brother, when you are gone

    There will be hole in my life

    If you’ve got to go, it will break my heart

    I'll see on the other side

    The other side

    North Side Saturday Night

    North Side Saturday Night

    Hand me down a cold cerveza

    Hot July evening, mosquitos are buzzing

    Come on out for a north side Saturday night

     

    Screen door slams as the mijos are chasing

    All through the house that Gabbie just rented

    It’s family and friends on a North Side Saturday night

     

    Cold sweat running down my beer,

    I want to taste the sweat behind your ear

    I can feel your skin, I can smell your hair

    There’s passion in the air tonight

     

    Tejano music blaring from the stereo,

    There’s homemade comida, while people come and go

    Uno mas Tequilla, por favor

     

    Cold sweat running down my beer,

    I want to taste the sweat behind your ear

    I can feel your skin I, can smell your hair

    There’s passion in the air tonight

     

    Tomorrow is Sunday, we’ll atone for our sins

    There’ll be headaches to nurse and fences to mend

    No time for that now, it’s a north side Saturday night

    Everybody, it’s a north side Saturday…

    I’m calling you out for a north side Saturday night

    6 to 5, Against

    Life is a battlefield

    I will fight to my last breath

    Each day I march until night steals in,

    I camp one day closer to death

    I camp one day closer to death

     

    I’ve seen the crushing hand of fate,

    Overwhelm my best defense

    Played the odds but I have often found,

    They are- -6 to 5 against

    The odds are - -6 to 5 against

     

    Wisdom’s been a hard won friend,

    It comes with certain strings

    Through Love and loss I realize:

    The best things in life are not things

    The best things in life are not things

     

    I’ve prayed with sinners,

    I’ve walked with Saints,

    I have known all the in-betweens

    The middle road is sage’s path;

    There’s no balance in the extremes

    There’s no balance in the extremes

     

    We’re each given the gift of prophecy

    We can choose either rags or wealth

    The most fateful words we speak,

    Are the words we say to ourselves

    It’s the words we say to ourselves

     

    Tomorrow is like a grand horse race

    The winners stay off the fence

    Press hard, do the best you can

    The odds are - -6 to 5, against

     

    Work hard; with luck, you’ll beat the odds

    The odds are 6 to 5, against

    Your Ma Said You Cried

    Your ma said you cried

    Your daddy said he kick my ass

    So I called him on the phone,

    Said “thank you but I think I'll pass”

    Now I'm in my car, I'm on the highway

    I'm free of you at last

     

    When we first met, honey you were so darn nice

    You cooked my meals, rubbed my back and we'd never fight

    I was too tired to work from all the lovin' that we made at night

     

    I tried to make you happy, even bought you a washing machine

    Next came the house and dog; the American dream

    But then you said “Let's get married”

    I said “Honey that's just not my scene”

     

    That’s when your ma said you cried

    Your daddy said he kick my ass

    So I called him on the phone,

    Said “thank you but I think I'll pass”

    Now I'm in my car, I'm on the highway

    I'm free of you at last

    Now I'm in my car, I'm on the highway

    Got a full tank of gas

    Pain Killer

    Its 2 am, I can't sleep on this hot sticky night

    Toss and turn, finally I flip on the light

    Dial your number, but you won't answer the phone

    You're just pretending no one is home

     

    Desperate for painkiller

    Your love is like painkiller

    I've got to have, painkiller

    Without it I will surely go insane

    Please help me girl, I can't take the pain

     

    Lights are on in your apartment

    Two shadows dancing inside

    Want to turn and run,

    There is no place to hide

    It's like a dagger straight through my heart

    When a man's voice calls out, "What do you want?"

     

    Desperate for painkiller

    Your love is like painkiller

    I've got to have, painkiller

    Without it I will surely go insane

    Please help me girl, I can't take the pain

     

    An addict's nightmare is day without drugs

    A wino's bottle is only true love

    Your love produces the desired effect

    When I'm withdrawing my whole world is a wreck

    It's a wreck

     

    Desperate for painkiller

    Your love is like painkiller

    I've got to have, painkiller

    Without it I will surely go insane

    Please help me girl, I can't take the pain

     

    Help me girl, I can't take the pain (4x)

    Get You Back

    We started out, then you found out

    Now all I'm left with is traces of doubt

    The saddest sound, I've ever found

    With the sound of your footsteps;

    Leaving my house

     

    Got to get you back whether you like it or not

    I know you can't trust me, but try

    My heart is slow to reveal how I feel;

    Soon you'll know the reason why,

    Soon you will know the reason why

     

    All your friends told you about my affair;

    But it only lasted one night

    Can't you see I still care?

    The woman was older,

    She plied me with wine

    I felt as I loved her,

    I was loving you all the time

     

    Got to get you back whether you like it or not

    I know you can't trust me, but try

    My heart is slow to reveal how I feel;

    Soon you'll know the reason why,

    Soon you will know the reason why

     

    Woman, woman, I was afraid

    I did not want to be tied down

    Woman, woman, now that I found you

    I'm tired of all this running around,

    I'm tired of all this running around,

    I'm tired of all this running around

     

    Got to get you back whether you like it or not

    I know you can't trust me, but try

    My heart is slow to reveal how I feel;

    Soon you'll know the reason why,

    Soon you will know the reason why

    My Heart Can't Make Up Its Mind

    There's a problem here;

    There's no doubt about it

    Tell me why we both are starting to doubt it

    Tell me when enough is enough

    It's been rocky for more than a year now

    The answers are hard to find

    There's more questions than good intentions

    There's more reasons to be unkind

     

    My heart can't make up its mind;

    Which way I should turn

    Because your love is blind;

    And I don't want to get burned

    Because I've been there before, and I find:

    That my heart just can't make up its mind

     

    Asked my friends what they thought about it

    Ask my brother what I should do

    Told my lover I was starting to doubt it

    She said “The answers will come to you”

     

    My heart can't make up its mind;

    Which way I should turn

    Because your love is blind;

    And I don't want to get burned

    Because I've been there before, and I find:

    That my heart just can't make up its mind

     

    Now it's time to make the choice;

    That's the hardest part

    Because living with the choice is what causes pain

    How can something that made you feel so good for so long,

    Turn on you ‘til you think you'll go insane?

     

    My heart can't make up its mind;

    Which way I should turn

    Because your love is blind;

    And I don't want to get burned

    Because I've been there before, and I find:

    That my heart just can't make up its mind

    The Promise

    Do you remember, June in California?

    Racing through the mountains, late for our wedding

     

    Photographs and forever smiles

    A simple gold band that I will always wear

     

    Remember the promise, it is what we said we would do

    Remember the promise, the promise to be true

     

    I still remember, the seals on the rocks

    Highway one with the top down, the ocean breaking high

     

    Those small towns were like still life dreams;

    A picture book or a movie scene

     

    Remember the promise, it is what we said we would do

    Remember the promise, the promise to be true

     

    The spectre of temptation, stares you in the eyes.

    A moment of truth confronts you, what are you going to do?

     

    Many years later, when all is said and done-

    Have you kept you promise, to be true to only one?

     

    Photographs and forever smiles

    A simple gold band that I will always wear

     

    Remember the promise, it is what we said we would do

    Remember the promise, the promise to be true

    Remember (The Alamo)

             Remember (The Alamo)

    Fifth day of March, in 1836

    In a place that they now call “San Antone”

    The walls were crumbling, a battle was raging

    The Mexican siege was nearly 13 days old

    Of a mission the Spanish called “The Alamo”

     

    An independence uprising was quickly organizing

    Exactly where Santa Anna did not know

    Colonel Travis stood defiant

    As the Cannon’s answered his call

    Their ammunition was running critically low

    The reinforcements were moving too slow

     

    Tell me, why does a man stand and fight for a cause?

    For which he knows he surely must die

    A love of freedom that lives deep in his heart

    A courage that fills his mind

     

    Jim Bowie drew close and David Crockett had joined

    As Travis drew a line with his sword at their feet

    "Men this is your chance to take your leave if you wish"

    As for me, I'll never retreat

    I'll stay and die before live with defeat

     

    At sunrise the enemy charged,

    Finally scaled the battered walls

    The attack was too overpowering this time

    The defenders fought valiantly with their muskets as clubs

    By evening the hundred and 82 had died

    While thousands laid lifeless outside

     

    Tell me, why does a man stand and fight for a cause?

    For which he knows he surely must die

    A love of freedom that lives deep in his heart

    A courage that fills his mind

     

    The reinforcements arrived only hours too late

    But generally Houston's army was quickly organized

    The heroes had died, but a legend was born

    Remember the Alamo became the soldiers’ battle cry

    Remember the Alamo became the independence battle cry

    The Fire

    Tell me why you say you are leaving

    What do you need that you don't have now?

    Your reasons are empty, your promises broken

    I would change for you but you won't tell me how

     

    The fire started fast, faster than others

    Maybe too fast even for our own good

    You stare at the flame; it soon leaves you blinded

    Now you won't see me how I wish you would

     

    You told me you're leaving, gave me your reasons

    They just boil down to you don't care

    It's just like a dream where you feel like you're falling

    When I hit bottom baby, you won't be there

     

    The fire started fast, faster than others

    Maybe too fast even for our own good

    You stare at the flame; it soon leaves you blinded

    Now you won't see me how I wish you would

     

    It happened again

    I've got to start all over

    What should I do, where do I go from here?

    When you were with me I had a reason for believing

    Now that you're gone I'm left alone with my fear

     

    The fire started fast, faster than others

    Maybe too fast even for our own good

    You stare at the flame; it soon leaves you blinded

    Now you won't see me how I wish you would

    Well Known Facts

    Sit down my friend; I’ll buy you a drink

    There’s something that I want to discuss

    The whole town is talking about telling the truth,                                                                          

    I don’t understand the fuss

    The truth is very subjective

    I hope you will back me up

    What we’re sure is the truth is often times;

    Well known facts- we just made up...(Let me prove it)

     

    A man robbed the bank today at 3 pm;

    Four people saw the crime

    When the cops arrived, they got 4 different stories;

    No one was sure of the time

     

    You ask me, how that can be?

    When they saw it with their own eyes

    Its ‘cause in the end, the truth my friend,

    Is a very elusive prize

     

    Truth is in the eye of the beholder

    Lies are usually black or white

    In between lie shades of gray;

    Sometimes it’s hard to tell wrong from right

     

    I would not want to prevaricate

    I hope that you will back me up

    Often times what we think is the truth,

    Is well known facts we just made up

     

    Truth is in the eye of the beholder

    Lies are usually black or white

    In between lie shades of gray;

    Sometimes it’s hard to tell wrong from right

     

    Me, I stick to facts as I see them

    I hope you will back me up

    When I take the stand I’ll tell the truth;

    Or, give the well known facts I just made up

     

    You ask me how we’re often deceived

    When we see things with our own eyes

    Its cause in the end the truth my friend- is a very elusive prize
