Truth is a Pain

Truth is a pain

She bites and she burns

Leaving no stones left unturned

In my heart, mind, and soul

There lay no comfort for the one who stole

Something of importance from a friend to a friend

Details kept from me until I pushed to the end

The discovery burns deep as disappointment sets in

Thought I knew you better; that you would not commit such a sin

Taking from your brother and leading him on

How do you live with yourself from dusk until dawn?

So now I know and will never further recommend

This person I thought trustworthy and would always defend

Make good on this microphone and do the right thing

Perhaps again one day your praises I’ll sing

Let’s face it: you know a deal is a deal

Unless from a friend you don’t give a damn to steal
