The Barbed Hook of Truth


The agony of honesty piercing your disguise
Cutting to the quick, cutting to the heart
As at last you face the reality of your life
Your situation and the consequences

You hide but cannot run, not anymore
The message will hit home this time
You cannot decry it, you dare not deny it
Found out, undone, facing the music

Your hands are up, confessing, surrendering
Laying yourself open to attack, bare at the chest
Like a hook skirting the gutter and swinging late
The truth takes down your kingpin and lays you low
