Crack the Case

I will do your interview
Try to explain what I'm goin' through
Give you somethin' to read into
In a million different ways

A sick version of telephone
Starts at the clip of the microphone
A game we thought we had all outgrown
But still everybody plays

Ignoring all of the remedies
Believing all of the rumors
With their endless database
I wanna sit with my enemies
And say, "We should have done this sooner"
While I look them in the face
Maybe that would crack the case

I got a friend who's been thinkin' 'bout
Finally kickin' her husband out
His second life as a talent scout
Finally got him caught

While she was throwin' out all his clothes
She heard a voice from beyond the throes
"Punish him for the life he chose
But forgive the past that he did not."

It's really hard to hate anyone
When you know what they've lived through
And once they've given you a taste
She said, "This is for you to overcome,
But I will always love you."
In her perfect state of grace
Maybe that would crack the case

Now that we're through with formalities
What is it you wanna ask of me?
I'll answer open and honestly
Whatever that means

Findin' out that we occupy
Somebody else's opposin' side
On the banks of some great divide
Two versions of a dream

Countless revisions of history
Tryin' to tell us the future
Between each commercial break
I wanna call off the cavalry
Declare no winners or losers
And forgive our shared mistakes
You can pick the time and place
Maybe that would crack the case
