For Every Hit There's A Miss

While waiting for a cure for cancer
You get the idea
You're in the care of a spin doctor
Whose motivation's clear
See the money changing hands
Out of sight of the cameraman
It's all so insincere
According to this confidence trick
So intricate and slick
You're healthy, happy and hip

The facts don't fit
Truth moves and slips
But every time you fall for it
For every hit there's a miss

While waiting for a change of fortune
You get confused
You only want to be useful
You end up being used
They're stepping up to the microphone
Spouting out in an endless drone
And somehow it's always good news

The facts don't fit
Truth turns and twists
You never get the whole of it
For every hit there's a miss

You only hear one side of the story
The one they want you to
The one that leads to a happy ending
Though it won't apply to you

The facts don't fit
Truth moves and slips
But every time you fall for it
For every hit there's a miss

The facts don't fit
Truth turns and twists
You never get control of it
For every hit there's a miss

So when you feel you're on their list
To get shot down
Remember this:
You're not a target
Nothing's fixed
Which way you'll move they can't predict
For every hit there's a miss
