  1. Well Known Facts

From the recording Music & Lyrics

Lyrics

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
