The Undisputed Truth(not just the name of the band either)

More art is on the way–Eric and I have been looking after my nanogenarian abuelita while my Dad’s out of the country and every other family member is pretty much living in Miami. I’ve penciled a few comics, gessoed a canvas, and been otherwise drained of all life. I found a Saran wrapped baseball bat on the street tonight when I went out to get the rats canned peaches, much to the delight and approval of the neighboring bikers (at least the sight of me carrying a bat up the street was. Don’t know how they felt about the peaches). The night before I found a German military jacket hanging from a tree, much to the delight and approval of my hot Alsatian husband. I’m somewhat aware that I’m rambling. Anyway, I wanted to post this song that I heard earlier tonight, because The Undisputed Truth really lived up to their name with this one:

"Smiling Faces Sometimes"

(As recorded by The Undisputed Truth)
BARRET STRONG
NORMAN WHITFIELD

Smiling faces sometimes pretend to be your friend
Smiling faces show no traces of the evil that lurks within.

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes they don't tell the truth, uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof.

The truth is in the eyes
'Cause the eyes don't lie, amen
Remember a smile is just a frown turned upside down
My friend let me tell you

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes they don't tell the truth, uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof.

Beware, beware of the handshake that hides the snake
I'm telling you beware, beware of the pat on the back
It just might hold you back
Jealousy (jealousy), Misery (misery), Envy.

I tell you you can't see behind smiling faces
Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes they don't tell the truth, uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof.

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes they don't tell the truth, uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof.

(Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes)
(Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes)
I'm telling you beware, beware of the handshake that hides the snake
Listen to me now beware, beware of that pat on the back
It just might hold you back.

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes they don't tell the truth, uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof.

Your enemy won't do you no harm
'Cause you know where he's coming from
Don't let the handshake and the smile fool ya
Take my advice I'm only tryin' to school ya.

Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes they don't tell the truth, uh
Smiling faces, smiling faces tell lies and I got proof.
