papers (hades finds out) lyrics – anais mitchell

but the ones who tell the lies
are the solemnest to swear
and the ones who load the dice
always say the toss is fair
and the ones who deal the cards
are the ones who take the tricks
with their hands over their hearts
while we play the game they fix
and the ones who speak the words
always say it is the last
and no answer will be heard
to the question no one asks
so i ask you as a brother
and i ask you as a friend
and i ask you as a lover
and i ask you once again
is it true what they say?
