now listen

oedipus went looking for the truth
and when he found it
it ruined him
cruel horror of a joke

so much for the truth
i was gonna talk out of both sides of my mouth
and what you heard depended on which side you were standing.

if i ever did stumble on any truth
i was gonna sit on it and keep it down.

but truth was the last thing on my mind
and even if there was such a thing,
i didn't want it in my house.
