Blinded By A Lie - Lyrics by UFO

I got the information from a friend last night
And it looks so very different in black and white
I was part of the second party, that was me
Signed away my life, really couldn't see* blinded by, blinded by a lie
Blinded by, blinded by a lie
I know it's just the price you pay
I know you're nothing* repeat
Now you listen closely, don't you go away
There's a cut of something, in what I have to say
You keep the full deck from me, mr. percent
Through the legal jungle, who's the one that's bent? * repeat
I know it's just the price you pay
I know you've nothin' to say
And oh boy every dog has it's day
I know you'll be the one to pay
And now I see that I was* repeat and fade
