JUSTIFICATIONS. If what you believe is actually true there wouldn't be a need to believe it. But if it is not true your mind has to run justifications. These will run down quickly if allowed to go unopposed.

Up was down

Words by Ron Smothermon
Music by Charlie McLight

I always knew how to sound right
Winning arguments was my strength
On my debating feet I was so light
For to win I would go to any length

Up was down in my book
Or so I could make you think
I could justify anything
And bring your patience to the brink

My first wife put up with me for years
I drove her mad with my retorts
And many times I brought her to tears
Til finally she took me to the courts

Up was down in my book
Or so I could make you think
I could justify anything
And bring your patience to the brink

My second wife was not such a rarity
My justifications drove her out of the house
So she went to work for charities
And showed me myself as a louse

Up was down in my book
Or so I could make you think
I could justify anything
And bring your patience to the brink

My third wife would have none of it
And told me to shut my big mouth
I did my best to show her my wit
But she took my car and went south

Up was down in my book
Or so I could make you think
I could justify anything
And bring your patience to the brink

So now I'm single with one exception
I still can find reasons to win every fight
And now I'm married to my protection
My justfications keep me warm all night, all night
