"Try Honesty" as written by Aaron Solowoniuk, Ian D'sa, Jon Gallant and Ben Kowalewicz....
I tripped, I fell down naked
I scratched my knees, they bled
Sew up my eyes need no more
In our game there is no score

Forgive me father why should ya bother
Try honesty, try honesty
Hop in your dump truck, reverse for good luck
Ride over me, ride over me
Take on the whole world, fight with the young girls
Die tragedy, die tragedy
Call me a cheapskate, come on for Pete's sake
Cry agony, cry agony

I'm insane it's your fault, so sly
Your well of lies ran dry
I cut the cord, free fall
From so high we seem so small

Forgive me father, why should ya bother
Try honesty, try honesty
Hop in your dump truck
Reverse for good luck
Ride over me, ride over me
Take on the whole world, fight with the young girls
Die tragedy, die tragedy
Call me a cheap skate, come on for Pete's sake
Cry agony
Cry agony

I'm insane, it's your fault, cry!
I'm insane, you're so, sly!

Forgive me father, why should ya bother now?
Forgive me father, why should ya bother now?

Forgive me father, why should ya bother
Try honesty, try honesty
Hop in your dump truck, reverse for good luck
Ride over me, ride over me.
Take on the whole world, fight with the young girls
Die tragedy, die tragedy
Call me a cheapskate, come on for Pete's sake
Cry agony, cry agony

Cry agony, cry agony
Cry agony, cry agony
Cry agony, cry agony

    General CommentGay or not, shouldn't matter.

    He could be Bi for all we know, since, we (as a collective group) don't know him personally.

    General Commentcorrect the lyrics please. It's called Try Honesty! Not Try Honestly. The song is about a rebel who thinks he's worthless and wants to die!

    General CommentAccording to 'What Magazine', 'Try Honesty' "is about about a girl I [lead singer Ben Kowalewicz] knew who was fed up with the world and dealing with it all".
