Truth Warrior

written for Pickup Purimspiel, “Bro(e)n II ½: The Saga Continues”
Öresunds Limmud, Malmö, Sweden, 9 March 2014

(to the tune of ‘Euphoria’, Eurovision Sverige 2012)

How, how has this situation come to pass?
Now, with everything I say I’m such an ass.
Oh no, I cannot do the things I want to do
And so, with every step I take I’m serving you.

(Chorus)
Truth warrior
You’ve trapped us in your rotten spell
From now on, no more fibs we’ll tell
We cannot stop-op-op-op-op-op-op
Truth warrior
We’ll never understand just why
Impossible to tell a lie
We cannot stop-op-op-op-op-op-op

We are here, we’re in a world where everything’s reversed
We’re not free: lies are forbidden, have we all been cursed?
Addicted, conflicted, restricted, we’re trapped in a weird mystery
No liar, we tire, it’s dire, the greatest crime in history.

(Chorus)

Conflicted, we’re trapped in a weird mystery
It’s dire, the greatest crime in history.

(Chorus)
