Joe Walsh - Confessor

The bottom has a rocky reputation
You can feel it in the distance the deeper down you stare.
From up above it's hard to see but you knowwhen you're there.
On the bottom words are shallow.
On the surface talk is cheap.

You can only judge the distance by the company you keep

In the eyes of the CONFESSOR.
In the eyes of the Confessor,
There's no place you can hide.
You can't hide from the eyes (of the Confessor)
Don't you even try.
In the eyes of the Confessor
You can't tell a lie,
You cannot tell a lie (to the Confessor)
Strip you down to size,
Naked as the day that you were born,
Naked as the day that you were born.
(Tremendous guitar work)
Take all the trauma, drama, comments,
The guilt and doubt and shame
The what if's and if only's
The shackles and the chains
The violence and aggresion,
The pettiness and scorn,
The jealousy and hatred,
The tempest and discord,

Never heard this one, texlahoma. Thanks for sharing. Lots of good stuff in the lyrics. Sounds like it's about living your life for the right reasons and living honestly. What made you choose this one?

Mr. Shife - Thanks for asking, I was thinking about someone who has made some bad decisions. It's hard to tell someone that they are screwing up, sometimes I feel like saying "Look around, look at who you are hanging out with." but the song seems to say it better with
"You can only judge the distance by the company you keep."
