B
 You never said it was a bed of roses
E
 But you never said it was a bed of nails
B
 You never told me 'bout the rubber hoses
E
 Or how unsteady were the justice scales
           A      G
I need the wild truth
    A      G
The wild truth
    A      G       E
The wild truth

B
 On the street there are a billion people
E
 They got no love, they got no hope
B
 They got no youth, they got no beauty
E
 They're looking backwards through a telescope
               A      G
They need the wild truth
    A      G
The wild truth
    A      G       B
The wild truth

B              
Whatever happened to the man walking down the street
                      G#m
With his hands in his pockets whistling a tune?
A                                                   B
 Science fiction and nostalgia have become the same thing
B              
I don't know how to make any choices anymore, I mean,
G#m                                            A
 Who do I vote for?  I get the feeling that as soon as
                                               B
Something appears in the paper it ceases to be true
B
 I have to meet the man who can crack this world of justice
       G#m                                     A
Like a safe. Someone with the courage to allow room for
                   B
Good things to run wild
         B      A
Into the wild truth
    B      A
The wild truth
    B      A       E

B
 We don't need no voodoo stories
E
 From no magic president
B
 Who tries to make a dream a fait accompli
E
 By using phantoms for his evidence
            A      G
We need the wild truth
    A      G
The wild truth
    A      G       E

B
 I tell a hundred thousand lies that twist me
E
 Into the noise where I hide my sin
B
 My shame and scandal pull me down and kiss me
E
 I can't live a life that might have been
           A      G
I need the wild truth
    A      G
The wild truth
    A      G       B
The wild truth

B                                                    G#m
 Are we supposed to take all this greed and fear and hatred seriously? 
                               A                              B
 It's like watching dust settle it never changes, it's too consistent
B                                            G#m
 Mercy is not consistent it's like the wind, it goes where it will. 
         A                                           B
Mercy is comic, and it's the only thing worth taking seriously

           B      A
I need the wild truth
    B      A
The wild truth
    B      A
The wild truth
    B      A       E
The wild truth
