Song Description

Left, Right, or Wrong is an uptempo classic rock song about the polarizing nature of politics and how it distracts from the higher human agenda of raising one's consciousness. The song features blistering organ performances by Lee Parvin and world-class slide guitar work from Mike Tyler.

Story Behind the Song

Left, Right, or Wrong tells four short stories about the futility of politics in a world where both sides are built into the system, much like left and right channels on a stereo. The end of the second verse describes an elderly man who elects to turn inward - and upward - rather than continue to struggle against the assumptive duality of the universe outside.

Lyrics

LEFT, RIGHT OR WRONG
Parvin & Patterson
Copyright 2011

Counselor and his wife are dining outside
Straightens his tie and tells his young bride
Honey I love you but I hate your point of view
Your politics kill me but how could I live without you?

Che's had enough and sounds the alarm
Tellin' his former comrade in arms
You're gonna get sore sitting firmly astride that fence
But he's gotta see both sides for it all to make sense

Chorus:
Left, right, or wrong
Left, right, or wrong
Debate's gone on so long
There ain't no side left to be on
To somebody somewhere
You're gonna be just plain wrong
Right or wrong

Subversive left channel is locked in a battle
With noise from the right like stampeding cattle
They're fighting for supremacy of my stereo
I keep 'em separated I don't dare leave them alone

Well it took all the strength the elder could summon
To see what the opposites all had in common
The fight outside wasn't worth all the blood, sweat and tears
He'd rather go inward and up in his golden years

(Chorus)

(Solo)

Left, right, or wrong
Left, right, or wrong
Debate's gone on so long
There ain't no side left to be on
To somebody somewhere
You're gonna be just plain wrong
Right or wrong

Left, right, or wrong
Left, right, or wrong
Debate will keep raging on
Long after we're all gone
To somebody somewhere
You're gonna be just plain wrong
To somebody somewhere
You're gonna be just plain wrong
Right or wrong...
Right or wrong...
