Twelfth Gate - Sugarcoated

Gloss over and disguise politically corrected lines
Not a matter of moral high ground

Say it like it is
Tell it like it is

Sugarcoated catchy lines
Makes it easy for you

It's hard to catch a spinning lie
But don't you think we ought to put it under a light
And watch the roaches scatter

Sugarcoated catchy lines
Makes it easy to do
But how will you feel when the term is out of style
And you're left all alone

Spin, and gloss, and twist away
The truth becomes a casualty
Selective conscious conditioning

They'll dance around the truth
Laughing all the way
Making up new moves
Take it to the bank

Say it like it is
Tell it like it is


Sugarcoated bleeding flesh
It's just your bait on a hook
What's casual about a casualty?
Explain this to me

Spin, and gloss, and twist away
The truth becomes a casualty

I have the right to choose what I want to say
For this I owe my gratitude
Thanks so much for having me

Softball censorship is way out of line
On the way, history revision
A matter of time, a matter of a crime

Take your bitter placebo to get you through your sugar-coated day
