Karen Elson’s Twisted Elegance, “The Truth Is In The Dirt”

With her brick red mane and milky white complexion, red-hot British belle Karen Elson is more than a fetching face in the crowd -- yeah she’s Jack White’s ball and chain, but she is also a founding member of cabaret troupe The Citizens Band.

Recorded at Third Man Studios in Nashville, Music City chanteuse’s debut outing, The Ghost Who Walks covers sweeping swathes of haunted terrain: from vintage dust bowl country twang to weather beaten gothic folk stylings. The breathtaking second single, “The Truth Is In The Dirt” has managed to take hold as the asylum’s favorite cut: shocks of spooky organ crack while slinking guitar lines entombed in fuzz lurk behind Elson’s distilled croon: “The truth is in the dirt on the ground / not on the blazing horse from the midnight sun / the fire will turn your bones to dust,”

“The Truth Is In The Dirt”
Written by: Karen Elson

The truth is in the dirt on the ground
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
not in your gilded cage with your rusted spoon
when the ground splits open it will swallow you

The truth is in the dirt on the ground
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
not in your poison tongue or your acid tears
let the truth howl in your ears

You should come, it's killing time
flames are burning behind her eyes
here she comes, it's killing time
flames are burning behind her eyes

The truth is in the dirt on the ground
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
Not in your claws, drawn-out scratch 'til it bleeds
knocked down dead gets what she needs

The truth is in the dirt on the ground
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
not on the blazing horse from the midnight sun
the fire will turn your bones to dust

here she comes, it's killing time
flames are burning behind her eyes
here she comes, it's killing time
flames are burning behind her eyes

The truth is in the dirt on the ground
The truth is in the dirt on the ground
not in your gilded cage with your rusted spoon
when the ground splits open it will swallow you

Take Up Thy Rock 'N Roll Stethoscope and Walk,
