There's a meeting across the river Just past the smokescreen in your eyes Everybody's waitin' to see you deliver Now's the time to break the tie that binds Come on down now, from your fences Come on down to the other side Broken down in another man's cell Who's gonna be there to pay your bail? It's hard sometimes to know what is right Everyday, just another hard time You should know by now you gotta pay to ride But that's alright, I finally see the light Didn't think there'd be a sermon Don't make no difference, by and by I can't be bothered by your burden It's just a matter of time before it dies Just go on about your business Break out the truth at the light of day One more thing you should consider Is how your lies gave you some damn good shade
