Truth be Told

Strangers laughing oh so soon
Shaking hands under the moon
Pushing past making rounds
Dealing a healthy dose of hate
You confounded fools, rattle the gourd

Wide smiles with a smudged face
Skipping along watching her shoe lace dance
Linen skirts twirl in the dirt
Clenching a pocketful of coins
You tame beast, tuck tail and run

Truth be told
Lies are sold
Truth be told
If you fit this mold
Truth be told
About to fold
Truth be told
She hopes into a paper plane

Back up, back up against a wall
Peeling paint anxious to fall
Buckled once above a worn soul
Run little girl, after all
This is your world, follow your heart

Truth be told
Lies are sold
Truth be told
If you fit this mold
Truth be told
About to fold
Truth be told
She hopes into a paper plane

Poison arrows pierce the sun
Shadows fall upon the young
Somebody please would you wake up
Somebody please would you shake up
Somebody please would you make up with these fools
I hope you had your fun
