Lyrics by David Cohen; Performance and Video Editing by Don Caron

“When I wanted usefulness it wasn’t hard to find
I gave three frauds a lifetime gig
Then when I needed lawlessness they slowed the clock on crime
It’s why I stacked the court so it was rigged

LYRICS to IMMUNITY
David Cohen

When I wanted usefulness
It wasn’t hard to find
I gave three frauds a lifetime gig
Then when I needed lawlessness
They slowed the clocks on crime
It’s why I stacked the court so it was rigged

Immunity is such a lovely word
Something that they must pursue
Immunity is ready to be heard
And something that they know I’m due

I can always twist someone
To say they empathize
Surely I have groomed them to deceive
So now it is the time and place
To confirm my MAGA lies
All they have to do is make-believe

Immunity is such a lovely word
Something that they must pursue
Immunity is ready to be heard
And something that they know I’m due

They would soon discover
It was not pretend
I planned to have impunity until the very end
I’m sure they will remember me
When I need them again
I’ll call, I’ll call

When I expected loyalty
There wasn’t much concern
Having always played them like a pawn
So when I asked for fealty
I knew they’d never let me burn
‘Cause they’re the ones that I depended on

Immunity is such a lovely word
Something that they must pursue
Immunity is ready to be heard
And something that they know I’m due

ABOUT THE ORIGINAL SONG

“Honesty” is a song by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released by Columbia Records as the third US single from his sixth studio album 52nd Street (1978) in 1979. “Honesty” was solely written by Joel, while production was handled by Phil Ramone. The song appears on the Dutch and Japanese editions of Greatest Hits Volume 2, replacing “Don’t Ask Me Why” (1980).

The song received mostly positive reviews from music critics, who generally praised its lyrics and piano instrumentation. It also received comparisons to other songs by Joel. “Honesty” peaked at number 24 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming the album’s third consecutive top 40 hit. It went to Number 1 in France and has also been certified gold by Recording Industry Association of Japan for ringtone download sales of over 100,000 units. Joel performed the song live several times with Elton John and later with Bryan Adams. “Honesty” has been covered and sampled by various artists, including by American R&B recording artist, Beyoncé.

“Honesty” was solely written by Billy Joel while production was handled by Phil Ramone. It is the second song from his sixth studio album 52nd Street (1978). David Spinozza plays the acoustic guitar in the song, Liberty DeVitto plays the drums and Robert Freedman the horn and string orchestration.

“Honesty” is a piano ballad with synthesizer embellishments. It opens with “sad and tender” piano chords. According to Ken Bielen in his book The Words and Music of Billy Joel, Liberty DeVitto’s drums and cymbal crashes, remind listeners that “the track is a predecessor of the power ballads of the 1980s and 1990s”. It talks about the inherent lack of honesty even in the closest of relationships. In the song Joel sings the lines “Honesty is such a lonely word”. Joel further sings about wearing his heart on his sleeve in “Honesty”. According to Chuck Klosterman of The New York Times, “[the song] implies that the only way you can tell that someone really cares about you is if they tell you you’re bad.” “Leningrad” (1989), a song from Joel’s eleventh studio album Storm Front, has been compared to “Honesty”. According to the sheet music published on the website Musicnotes.com by Faber Music, “Honesty” is a pop rock and classical rock song written in the key of B♭ major. The song is set in common time and performed in a slow tempo of 80 beats per minute. Joel’s vocals range from the note of Bb2 to Bb4.
