LYRIC - T and L

Updated: Oct 20, 2022

Inspired by Booker T Washington quote:

"A lie does not become truth

Wrong doesn't become right and

Evil doesn't become good

Because it is accepted by the majority"

T and L


V1: Seems lies brag about being truth

Seems wrong shouts loud that it is right

Seems evil dresses itself as good

As the majority follow it into the night


PRE CH: And throughout all of history

As Empires rise and fall

There's a still quiet voice

Against the canon balls


CH: T R U T H

Stands

T R U T H

Always the same

T R U T H

With its friend

L O V E

T and L

Always change the game (x2)


V2: Seems kindness doesn't make the news

Seems new born's still bring joy

Seems the Holy Dove still imbues the air

Never leaving us girls and boys


PRE CH: CH:


BR: In the quiet of a sanctuary

H O P E says hello

Whispering encouragement

Of what our lives could show

A gentle reminder that

All is never lost

When candle lights

Darkness flees

And that a Crest of Arms

Has a cost - as


CH: CH:


CODA: T and L

Will always change the game (x2)

T and L

ill always change the game
