Let's Be Fair

from by The Hicks Canyon Band



you say the sad bastard act is getting old
i say no one asked you to buy but it's getting sold
and there ain't nothing you can do
'cause the shit i sell is true
and all the money that i make goes up in smoke
or down my throat
just not to you

well this world wants you alive when it gets its chance
to teach you one or ten things about romance
but all the blood i spilled was mine
and you're welcome to take your time
but surprise surprise i just ain't in the mood to dance
or hold your hand
or even stand

and it's hard to fall from grace if you've never been there
and it's tough money to make but babe i ain't scared
let's be fair

so we'll keep this fire lit till it goes out
and you'll swallow every bit of that liquid down
and i can taste in on your breath
you say i only write of death
but surprise surprise i write about your problems too
just not for you
lord knows for who

and it's hard to recall your face since you haven't been here
and it's tough to feel to safe but babe i ain't scared
let's be fair
