I didn’t like this song at first. But at the second chorus I started hearing the lyrics:
When you love the truth enough you start to tell it all the time
When it gets you into trouble you discover you don’t mind
‘Cause if good is finally gonna trump
Then man you gotta take stock and you gotta take your lumps
Or else they trickle down into someone else’s cup below.
This resonates with me. It sounds like something parents might (should) tell their children. The music goes with the raw and heartfelt vibe too — makes me think of Bruce Springsteen. That’s not always a good thing, but it is in this case.
