Terrible Truth

from Bent by the Weather by Life in a Blender

lyrics

You turned a blind eye—oh how I’m sick of it
You can’t run away—you’re in the thick of it
You should have spoke out
When he smirked in your face

It’s a terrible truth
It’s a terrible truth

Look at all the gold and you become besotten
All the things that bloom will suddenly go rotten
Fight the bloody fight cuz if you get complacent
All the pigs grow fat while you lie in the basement
Wait for the change, and you would be mistaken
All the things you trust will suddenly be breaking
Rip off every suit and you will find the cancer
Don’t have regrets, regrets are not the answer

It’s a terrible truth
It’s a terrible truth
It’s a terrible truth
It’s a terrible truth

You give him a hand and soon he’s twistin’ it
He sings off key, and still you’re listening
Believe what he says, and you’re his prisoner
You may need a drink, a Soul Deliverer

It will be too late when you’re inside your coffin
Try to take a stand before you start to soften
Make a tiny fist and then begin to use it
Beat back all the shit before you start to lose it

Look at all the gold and you become besotten
All the things that bloom will suddenly go rotten
Fight the bloody fight cuz if you get complacent
All the pigs grow fat while you lie in the basement

It’s a terrible truth
It’s a terrible truth
It’s a terrible truth
It’s a terrible truth
