One version of the truth

I try not to discuss politics or religion online or in person, unless directly asked. I've found out the hard way that no good ever comes of it and you wind up not accomplishing anything and you confirm in other peoples minds that you are an idiot, even if the feeling is mutual.

At my age I feel that I've worked pretty hard to earn the truths that I tell myself, worked through mentally and believe. This song represents that with what I hope is a rorschach test for the listener.

Mid tempo, ionian mode

One version of the truth (c)2015 Timothy Pratt

Chorus
the truth of the story

has four way stop signs

the tale to reproduce

gotta read between the lines

diversion of the uncouth

will age you like fine wine

one version of the truth 

is you have yours and I have mine

 

verse1

think of all things 

we were taught in school

with pie charts

music arts

books and carts

there was always a rule

 

chorus

the truth of the story

has four way stop signs

the tale to reproduce

gotta read between the lines

diversion of the uncouth

will age you like fine wine

one version of the truth 

is you have yours and I have mine

 

Verse2
 wrong things always sting

kids can be so cruel

with private hearts

play mixed parts

in all due course 

how we hated high school

 

bridge

now that I'm older

got desert fountains 

hi def wallpaper 

 

I keep getting closer 

to more astounding mountains

of my own truth out there

 

chorus

the truth of the story

has four way stop signs

the tale to reproduce

gotta read between the lines

diversion of the uncouth

will age you like fine wine

one version of the truth 

is you have yours and I have mine
