Such a scandal
Such a shame
Who’s the traitor
What’s his name

We all have options
Fancy your choice
Choose to be silent
Or to use your voice

Inspire tribute
For another’s gain
When being loyal
Is your only aim

Oh, but be careful
What you proclaim
To savor slander
Is the devil’s way

Live free of remorse
Be clear of blame
Avoid the scandals
Evade the shame

~~~*1st Chorus*~~~
Such a scandal
Such a shame
To discredit
To defame
Cripple lives
And blacken names
Such a scandal
Such a shame

So are you righteous
Are you corrupt
Are your own problems
Challenging enough

Are you the master
Of the life you reign
Do you feel compassion
For your neighbors pain

Are you immoral
Or more humane
Embrace the damage
Or cast the blame

Cause the scandal
Invite the shame

~~~*2nd Chorus*~~~
To applaud them
To acclaim
Bestowing praise
Raising hope
And lifting blame
From the scandal
From the shame

Promote and uphold
Incite the truth
Only good things
Are ahead of you
Choose your weapon
Be wrong or right
Falsely slander
You’ll pay the price
