07. Conscience

Let the Thief Make Honest Work With His Hands
by Andrew Michael Akins

       
Lyrics:

I was conscious when I first lied
Felt in my conscience I wasn’t right
Here I am again walkin’ that line
Forget what he says with the sweet taste of wine
Told my father it was all his fault
I wasn’t like the others, or so I thought
It’s the fight I’ve always fought
Never okay with just what I got

And he said love has got it all wrong, all along
Yeah, love has got it all wrong, all along

I was conscious when I first felt
Felt in my conscience I wasn’t well
A father’s anger from a leather belt
Guess I earned it from raisin’ hell
I heard from a good man that my heart is ill
Come from a family of men who steal
There’s a picture frame on my windowsill
Sayin’ these were the good times, but honey, it lost its will

And I said love has got it all wrong, all along
Yeah love has got it all wrong, all along

When I grow older, I’ll be kind
I’ll trade my darkness in for the light
I’ll stand for my brother as he faces his plight
When I grow older, yeah, I’ll be kind

But love has got it all wrong, all along
Yeah love has got it all wrong, all along
Yeah love has got it all wrong, all along
Yeah love has got it all wrong, all along
