Treasure Island

MAYBE


Maybe I Was Wrong, To Go On
Really Wrong
To Go On
And On
I Was Right When I Was Right
And I’ll Always Win That Fight
All I Really Did Was Plan To Sing
Yes, Sing All Night
Can I Go On? To See What I Bring?

Maybe I Was Wrong, Not This Time
Not This Time At All
I’ve Always Had A Fine-Line
But Chose The Right Line
Not Picking On The Small
But Sometimes I Did Fall

Right Equals Right
Can Let That Rest?
Any Mistakes? – Yes, I Confess

What Ever The Occasion
No One Is Always Right
So If I’m Wrong Don’t
Get Uptight
Because I Will Not Fight

Seeing Through Your Lies
Are A Little Easy For Me
I Came From The Same Neighborhood
Remember – I Won That Fight For Good
Won From Your Very First Major Lie
I Was Next To You
At Your Starting Line

Maybe I Was Right, Maybe You Were Wrong
But True Facts = Equals Real Truth
Every God Damn Time

If You Want To Dance
Go Right Ahead
If You Want To Play
Better Stay In Sync
Better Look In The Mirror
And Not Forget
To Be Sober And Use True Ink
If You Are Really My Friend
As Your Lies, Even When In Ink
Would Burn Under My Fire
Yeah Burn From My Fire

Questioning Your Judgements
Now? - Seeing Through
Your Self-Deception?
Because You’re Shouting Me Gifts Again
That Would Never Quiet Me Down
I'Ve Already Paid For My Sins, And That Has Nothing To Do With Religion,
I’m An Atheist Too
You Silly Clown
Don’t You See?
The Pen Has Always Been
Always Been More Powerful Than The Gun
Can You See At All?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
