I dedicate this song to the Bush Administration...
I was playing it on the CD player this morning, and it seems oh so appropriate as the Fitzgerald investigation heats up.

(a couple verses cropped)...



Let The Truth Sting (David Gray)

Do you find it there
In the sea of faces
That drowns you every day
Or in the silence and rubble and empty spaces
Where children and rottweilers play
Is it buried in the praise
Given so cheap
With a meaningless movement of the jaws In the looking glass
That flatters you
Or in the rattle of hollow applause

Blind circle, moon and sun
Body willing, mind undone
One pain ending while another begins
Lies, ruin, disease
Into wounds like these
Let the truth sting

From the hub to the limit
Through the urban hollows
Out into the poles of the extreme
To echo through the numbness
Of these godless minutes
In the shadow of delusion's regime

But here watching the night
As it opens like a flower
And the day starts to rust
Feeling time pound
Like a silent hammer
On this empire of dust

And I'm thinking about the bullet
And the TV screen, the dollar,and the clenched fist
And if we're searching for peace
How come we still believe
In hatred as the catalyst

Through the borderline
In front and behind
Down the road of thorns
Between the barbwire and the soul
Bitters and chains
Is all that remains
Where the wheel has rolled

On and on
Body willing, mind undone
One pain ending while another begins
Lies, ruin, disease
Into wounds like these
Let the truth sting
Let the truth sting
Let the truth sting

1. This new song from Jamiroquai...
doesn't make any secret of its target. It's called "The World That He Wants."

Why does this man
Defy the storm and burn us all
Each time his hand waves
The sun it sets on lonely graves
Haven't we read this page before
We're gonna lose the war
Put down the glory flag
Nothing will be the same

This is the world he wants
Pray for the brave and the young
It won't bring them back again

Stillness you know that it reigns supreme
And suffocates our only dream
No birds can sing here
They've flown away
They didn't even say
When they'd be back again
Will they come back again
Unleash the hounds of hell
Whip up the fury wind
Hidden inside his dome

This is the world he wants
Pray for the brave and the young
He knows they're not coming home
Now do you ever, ever get the feeling
Ever get the feeling
This is the world that he wants
Do you ever get the feeling
Ever get the feeling
This is the world that he wants
This is the world he wants
This is the world he wants
