The Honest Man
Lyrics
He lives his life the best he can
With a job n' a family
It was once something new

His wife says "You feel special" n' he says, "You do too"
He asks himself "What's real?"
Despite the love he feels

Days go by moments show
Love can grow he knows
The past is always gone

The world has it's way whether or not he goes or stays
No matter how fast he runs
He lives briefly then he's done, he knows

Reality is a mystery defined by how his heart grows
N' reality is hard to see
But the only truth he knows-he's the honest man

He keeps on believin'
What he does he should
What he can't he would

He's taught n' learns religion n' some philosophy
He doesn't know what's real
He just knows how to feel

"I think therefore I am I guess,"
N' he makes a dream for the rest
Truth becomes a test

N' everybody's the same just different in this game
He knows, what he can
He's the honest man

Reality is a mystery defined by how his heart grows
N' reality is hard to see
But the only truth he knows-he's the honest man.
