About the Song....
"It's dedicated to a friend, Kevin Gilbert, who's sadly no longer with us. We were talking about how there were so many different levels of power and abuse in the world. He said about being crucified on a cross of innuendo. Unfortunately he dies and I was left with the title. In this song I just tried to suggest that, by words alone, a man can be condemned without any justification whatsoever. I can relate to that. I think many people can, that have been in the public eye and have been knocked down by the simplest of things or even a rumor."

The Lyrics

Everybody knows, every kind of fool
I'm just one that sees the world with open eyes
the countless lies, the truth denied,
which ever way the wind blows
and we're crucified - crucified
on the cross of innuendo
and we're shaking the faith of the fools,
everyone's forsaking and breaking the rules.
Is there nothing sacred - we're naked,
in fear of what we do, they're watching you.

Everything we say and everything we do
questions our morality and judges us
for who we are and how bizarre,
we're all freaks in this sideshow
and we're crucified - crucified
on the cross of innuendo
and we're shaking the faith of the fools,
everyone's forsaking and breaking the rules.
Is there nothing sacred - we're naked,
in fear of what we do, they're watching you.

We're hypnotized an patronized
which ever way the wind blows
and we're crucified - crucified
on the cross of innuendo
and we're shaking and breaking the rules,
everyone's forsaking the faith of the fools
can't you see we're chasing the dreams of the fools
don't you know they're faking and breaking the rules
the countless lies
which ever way the wind blows
and we're crucified - crucified
on the cross of innuendo
and we're shaking the faith of the fools
everyone's forsaking and breaking the rules.
Is there nothing sacred - we're naked,
in fear of what we do, they're watching you.
