Honesty
SEARCHIN’

Lyrics

SEARCHIN’

Downtown looking for you in London
Driving empty streets of L.A.
Concrete canyons uptown New York
Send me back to check Marseilles

Hot tip takes me down to Dubai
Where smugglers sail me to Bombay
I find a trail that leads to Shanghai
Then down to Rio the next day

I’m searchin’, still searching
But this searchin’
Is taking far too long
I’m searchin’, and I’ll keep searchin’
‘Til I find where honesty has gone

Well you can say you lie for her sake
When you hide the way you cheat
And that might help you face the mirror
But deep inside you know you’re weak

And you can justify your crime wave
Your closet full of three-piece suits, yeah
Penthouse views and offshore millions
The only way you measure truth

Yeah, I’m searchin’, still searching
But this searchin’
Is taking far too long
I’m searchin’, and I’ll keep searchin’
‘Til I find where honesty has gone

If every politician’s lying
And every lawyer’s sucking blood
If every banker’s in your pocket
Well tell me who it is you trust

If every corporation’s psycho
And every activist a fool
Well I guess we should have seen it coming
‘Cause we’ve made mockery of the rules

I’m searchin, still searching
But this searchin
Is taking far too long
I’m searchin, and I’ll keep searchin
‘Til I find where honesty has gone
