New Truths About Nicky Wire     

I told you my truth, Nicky,
The first time I met you in Queen Street,
The first of 3 chance meetings
In the same street
In the space of 2 months.
I told you about my plan
To set up Truth Records.
And then you went and released
Your own truth record.
Exploitation of the truth I call it.
Be honest, who really influenced you Nicky?
Aneurin Bevan?
Or did you get the idea
From another Nick
Before you went to buy your boxing magazine?
