You been runnin’ round like a riddle in my mind
The whisper of your voice and the way that your lips shine
You’re a bad mistake
Waitin’ on me to make
You would never be all mine

The Real Truth About It

The real truth about it is no one gets it right
The real truth about it is we’re all supposed to try
There ain’t no end to the sands I’ve been trying to cross
The real truth about it is my kind of life’s no better off
If I’ve got the maps or if I’m lost

Author Ken Bielen compares Powderfinger to film noir because the narrator has died before the song begins, and notes that the song “has remained in high regard over the decades.”  Bielen regards the theme as “the tragic and wasteful loss of youth to conflicts between countries and their leaders.”
