"Men And Women" as written by and Michael Kelland Hutchence....
can't see how I can
Turn around what has been done
I was just like a child
With my eyes wide open

History and any cause
And my eyes are still open
But my mouth my mouth is shut
I'm closing off the lies

Making my own mind up
When I can I will
How many dirty little secrets
Were kept behind my back?

Men and women
Men and women
Men and women
Giving each other the sham

I don't see
How I can turn around what has been done
I was just like a child
With my eyes wide open

Hungry at any cost
Now my eyes are still open
But my mouth my mouth is shut
I'm closing out the lies and promises

Men and women
Men and women
Men and women

Giving me the sham
Giving me the sham
Giving me the sham

Men and women
Men and women
Giving me the sham

Men and women
Men and women
Giving me the sham

    General CommentI think this is about the relationship of deception that often is evident between men and women in general and especially when it involved relationships. Either between a father and child, mother and child or wife and husband/ boyfriend and girlfriend. There is a deep and often dark deception that can develop rather subconsciously or consciously and that is what to me this song is exploring and describing from the view of (in the songs case) a child.
    I'm closing out the lies and promises

    Men and women
    Men and women
    Men and women

    Giving me the sham
    Giving me the sham
    Giving me the sham
