THE GREAT CONTROVERSY, 2013

Stick to the Facts

 

Got served my walking papers a thousand days and nights ago

Heard widows weep and I seen the sick sleep along the road

I’ve traveled far and wide to places where nothing grows

And watched the best of ships get swallowed by the undertow

 

My aim has been the same ever since I had my start

My head is filled with blood, it leaves nothing for my heart

I’ve got the means to take your dreams and tear them all apart

Or turn an empty canvas into a priceless piece of art

 

Through spider web cracked and broken glass

I let all the world before me pass

This ruthless toothless grinning mask

Ain’t held in place with candle wax

So let’s try to stick to the facts

Try to stick to the facts

Stick to the facts

 

I been locked in chains and had my name smeared across the front ream

So, I played their game and turned the blame on the ones that tried to hunt me

Then filled every fat politicians’ pockets full of mud and money

I’ve laid with whores who somehow swore they were as pure as honey

 

Through spider web cracked and broken glass

I let all the world before me pass

This ruthless toothless grinning mask

Ain’t held in place with candle wax

So let’s try to stick to the facts

Try to stick to the facts

Stick to the facts

 

Now maybe some eyes were made for sight and some were made for vision

It’s just as well cause the road to hell is paved with good intentions

Yeah, I’ve been burned and I have learned the things to leave alone

But when the night is dark this restless heart has a will all of it’s own

 

Through spider web cracked and broken glass

I let all the world before me pass

This ruthless toothless grinning mask

Ain’t held in place with candle wax

So let’s try to stick to the facts

Try to stick to the facts

Stick to the facts
