Rob Gilchrist:
Uncovered from undercover.
10 years spying for the police
with nothing to show for it.


I am a man to gather data's dust
I am a man of sneaky schemes
I am a man of hidden intent
Who is secretly sent, I stoop to any means
I convey the secrets of acquaintance & friends
The ambitious talk & the radical plan
I am entrapment to the wait of police hands
I am a man of sneaky means

I am a man to gather trouble's trust
I am a man who earns a buck
I am a man with powerful friends
Who’ll use any means while I'm in good luck
I travel & meet, I sleep & I play
I live this deceit, and live on good pay
It's espionage in the bold light of day
Don't believe what I say I am a man of errant luck

Gone, it's all finished!
It's all public and kaput!
Leaving Robert named
Crowned king of ill-repute
Hard drive got corrupted
Reveal the evidence in email
It was the
Scores of police contact
That tore away the veil

Is, Is he? Isn't he? Isn't he? Is! S P Y

I am a man of tradition unmasked
I am a man with a decade laid waste
I am a man whose friends have all split
This Judas kiss tastes of shame & disgrace
I collected & kept, I passed it along
The gossip & gas in the big hunt for wrong
To the powers in power who plan & respond
Who have left me & gone
With the fallout of this famed disgrace
