The story is a famous one
Now worshiped, now dismissed
Rehearsed and trawled for meanings
That may well not exist
The demon at the story's heart

The cuckoo in the nest
Gives little of himself away
Which is of course why you will stay
In case he falters, should betray
By whom or what possessed

These are the facts of the matter
These are the names in the case
This is the story, the passion
The time and the place

They're laid here before you
So judge if you can
The devil incarnate or
A misunderstood man

His origins, his way of life
His motives they're all news
No shortage of detractors
To air their noisy views

The man inspires a thousand lies
The lover takes his choice
Remaining coldly in control
Aware that sadly, on the whole
It is the fool who bares his soul
I'll give the man a voice

These are the facts of the matter
These are the names in the case
This is the story, the passion
The time and the place

They're laid here before you
So judge if you can
The devil incarnate or
A misunderstood man
