​Consequences

This song is by The Grapes of Wrath and appears on the album These Days (1991).

We could talk about the consequences
But I think you've reached your own conclusions
Why you can say the things you say
And deny any debts that they create

We could talk about abuse of power
Over those who put you in your tower
Or you could say that's not the case
As it is, you just rub it in their face
Unless you decide to share your graces

So don't keep telling me about loyalty
When you don't seem to care
What it's like to be on the other side of the fence
And don't think you're fooling me
'Cause I can see what you won't
They're the consequences

Take a look behind your pointed finger
Though you're hoping not, we all remember
Times you would rather we forget
They'd be back as if they had never left
Until we decide to share your graces

So don't keep telling me about loyalty
When you don't seem to care
What it's like to be on the other side of the fence
And don't think you're fooling me
'Cause I can see what you won't
They're the consequences

Do you want to see all your offenses
Written out like they're some kind of checklist
Why should I waste all of my breath?
Just so you can deny it to the death
Unless I decide to share your graces

So don't keep telling me about loyalty
When you don't seem to care
What it's like to be on the other side of the fence
And don't think you're fooling me
'Cause I can see what you won't
They're the consequences
