Me & myself take I to hell at night
tryin' to find somebody to please us.
Nobody knows of the mistakes I make
I keep 'em between myself and Jesus.
Trouble for believers
is leaders become deceivers
when just doin' what we've told
feels unnatural.
I used to try and fight it
now I keep it outta sight it
makes me get up & go -
as long as nobody knows.

When you're tellin' a lie,
always sellin' a lie -
STAND UP AND YELLIN' THE LIE

It's a blind truth.

Tucked under sheets,
my dirty street bedtime.
I woke up with gravel in my teeth.
Cover my smile
so I can justify
slammin' my gavel on belief.
Trouble with tribunals
is scruples become communal
and now doin' what I should
just don't feel so good.
I skirt the public's ire
when flirtin' with desire
I can get up and go -
as long as nobody knows.

When you're tellin' a lie,
always sellin' a lie -
STAND UP AND YELLIN' THE LIE

It's a blind truth.
