"Hickory Dichotomy" as written by and Robert Emile Deleo Dean Deleo....
Alright, alright, alright, come on
Alright, alright, alright, come on
Alright, alright, alright, come on
Alright, alright, alright, come on

Strange, strange, strange, it's a dichotomy
But it was never quite weird
Or quite normal for me
Take a break, take a breath and let's see where we're at
Those damn bedbugs are sleeping up in my head
All day, all night

You telling my story
But you don't know my name
It's a hickory dichotomy
You're messing with my brain

Selling the story
Are you holy or lying
Hickory dichotomy
I tell you the truth then you bite

Alright, alright, alright, come on
Alright, alright, alright, come on

Brave, brave, brave
As the apostles go
Is it a hickory hypothesis
Or one man show?
Take a rest
Or take a ravel
In the light of lights
But them tall tale teasers
Keep sneaking in my show tonight
Alright

You telling my story
But you don't know my name
It's a hickory dichotomy
You're messing with my brain

Selling the story
Are you holy or lying
Hickory dichotomy
I tell you the truth then you bite

You telling my story
But you don't know my name
It's a hickory dichotomy
You're messing with my brain

Selling the story
Are you holy or lying
Hickory dichotomy
I tell you the truth then you bite

Alright, alright, alright, come on
Alright, alright, alright, come on
Alright, alright, alright, come on
Alright, alright, alright, come on

    General CommentI'm not really a group person, but I can see why teens and young adults of this decade are pissed. There is no mainstream music for people in their 20s, it's all just teeny bopper shit.

    hopefully now that STP and AIC is back... possibly soundgarden making an album next year.. hopefully all the modern rock posers will be put to rest

    General Commenti think this song is about the book that scotts ex-wife ( mary ) wrote ... which told some of scotts personal life

    Selling the story
    Are you holy or lying

    - scott could be questioning her intent about some content of the book regarding him personally... is she writing it for the right reasons or could she just be cashing in on his name to get it to sell

    General Commenti think redhostage is right.... sounds like scotts reacting to a book/article that was written about him
