The honest dishonest

If you ever think it can't get worse
This is the time to hold on
You can't shake the old curse
Remember it's a long con
Shake it off and get yourself up
It's not a man who complains
My eyes see it as a half full cup
And forgettable pains
Lesser is the soul that looks the true
When inside they know nothing is straight
The dishonest honesty carried a few
While the rest of us stood for the wait
