this song is really hard to hear

--

don't laugh
when i'll ask you for the truth
you've got to say it
don't tell me when it hurts
cause i won't care

you've got to be depressed for what you are
yeah that's the law

stand up
when the little man walks to the office and the hallway [?]
[..?..]
you got to pay the price for working undercover
yeah that's the law

don't laugh
when i'll ask you for the truth
you've got to say it
don't tell me when it hurts
cause i won't care
you got to pay the price

I think that bit goes after the 'office in the hallway' bit. Also I hear it like "You've got to pay the price for what you ARE." Could be wrong, though.

I hear:

Don't lie
When I'm asking for the truth you've got to say it
Don't tell me when it hurts 'cause I won't care
You got to pay the price for what you owe
Yeah, that's law, that's law

Stand up
????? next to the office down the hallway
When you're ready go home and change and take a shower
You got to pay the price for working under code
Yeah, that's law, that's law
Yeah, that's law, that's law
That's law

Don't lie
When I'm asking for the truth you've got to say it
Don't tell me when it hurts 'cause I won't care
You got to pay the price

I always heard 'pay the price for what you are' also, but just listened again and have to concede that it must be 'owe'. I kind of like it as 'what you are' though, sounds a bit more dramatic!

This song almost has a different feel to me now knowing that Ariel wrote the lyrics. Makes me want to hear Ariel using John's words, too!

I agree, "what you are" has more depth I think, but I definitely hear "what you owe".

Yeah, that's law, that's law

Still can't make out what he says here:
Stand up
In (a little line ______ ...or.... a letter line _____?????) to the office down the hallway

“don't tell me when it hurts cause i won't care”; this is a line that actually caught my emotions stirling. This is actually what made me read the full thing. I am damn impressed jake. The song was amazing and I loved it to the core.
