If you checked in last week you were subjected to the first verse of "Talking Blues". The Chorus (to follow) was written first, actually, a few weeks ago. It was one of those things that popped up, landed in a notebook, and then languished there for a while until the rest of the song could catch up. It's topical in nature, I guess, but unfortunately maybe universal too. It kinda depends on the day. Anyway, here you go:
The truth ain’t what you hear about
It ain’t what you read
You can’t find it with your mobile phone
On your Twitter feed
The truth ain’t black and it ain’t white
It ain’t only in your head
Truth is - the truth is on life support
If it ain’t already dead
So that's your weekly Jolt Of Joy from the House Of Strays. We hope you have a good week. Be kind to one another....
Here's a demo version, warts and all, of a new tune that's currently in the Meat Grinder: "The Other Side Of The World"
