Straight Up

I could tell you it was about love

But it was kind of really about need

I could tell the cop it was an emergency

But it was pretty much about speed

I could tell you I was into Phish

But in truth it was about the weed

I could tell you I work for the love of it

But straight up its really greed

I could tell you a whole lot of shit

But not telling is my creed
