Hickory Dichotomy

Album: Stone Temple Pilots (2010)
  • Alright, alright, alright, come on
    Alright, alright, alright, come on
    Alright, alright, alright, come on
    Alright, alright, alright, come on

    Strange, strange, strange, it's a dichotomy
    But it was never quite weird
    Or quite normal for me
    Take a break, take a breath and let's see where we're at
    Those damn bedbugs are sleeping up in my head
    All day, all night

    You telling my story
    But you don't know my name
    It's a hickory dichotomy
    You're messing with my brain

    Selling the story
    Are you holy or lying
    Hickory dichotomy
    I tell you the truth then you bite

    Alright, alright, alright, come on
    Alright, alright, alright, come on

    Brave, brave, brave
    As the apostles go
    Is it a hickory hypothesis
    Or one man show?
    Take a rest
    Or take a ravel
    In the light of lights
    But them tall tale teasers
    Keep sneaking in my show tonight
    Alright

    You telling my story
    But you don't know my name
    It's a hickory dichotomy
    You're messing with my brain

    Selling the story
    Are you holy or lying
    Hickory dichotomy
    I tell you the truth then you bite

    You telling my story
    But you don't know my name
    It's a hickory dichotomy
    You're messing with my brain

    Selling the story
    Are you holy or lying
    Hickory dichotomy
    I tell you the truth then you bite

    Alright, alright, alright, come on
    Alright, alright, alright, come on
    Alright, alright, alright, come on
    Alright, alright, alright, come on Writer/s: Dean DeLeo, Robert Emile DeLeo, Scott Richard Weiland
