if my good name means keeping face with those who are not so good
strip my flesh of my good name and let me be not misunderstood
if my good name means putting on a facade to indulge the higher ups
then lower me below the lowest and empty my deceitful cup
if my good name means being nice to appease your sensibilities
then strip me of my good name and arm me with accountability
if my good name means betrayal to soul, self and spirit
then silence my good name because i don't want to hear it
if my good name means i have to tell myself a lie
then to hell with my good name i'd rather tell the truth and die!!!!!!
