"True" as written by Johnette Lin Napolitano and Jim Mankey....
When I've had enough
I'll get a pickup truck and I'll drive away
I'll take my last ten bucks just as far as it will go
Sometimes I'm easily fooled
I take a painful step and I get knocked back two
I do what I can and it's all I can do

But I'm true
And if I had the choice I'd take the voice I got
Cause it was hard to find
You know I've come too far to wind up right back where I started
And they tell me who I should be
I'll never let those monkeys make a mess of me
I give all I am and it's all I can do

But I'm true
One more sunset
Lay my head down

One more sunrise
Open my eyes up

And then they talk you up and then they talk you down
And you begin to doubt
Sometimes the reasons seem so very far away
But I'd stop breathing today
Cause if I can't walk proud, I'd rather walk away
I do all I am and it's all I can do

But I'm true
I'd give all I am and I'd give it to you
So true

    General CommentIt seems to me this song is about the music business. Johnette and Concrete Blonde don't really fit into any established niche. Their songs are pop, rock, punk, soft-ballad and so much more. It is Johnette Napolitano's voice and delivery that really make this band what it is, and she is was not and will never be tied down to any easily explained musical style.

    General CommentHard to belive that noone has commented on this song. Its really eloquently self-explanitory. Be who you are. Be who you are to the last breath, and take pride in the fact that you have stood for a cause.
