TRUTH? (ORIGINAL VERSION)
(Collen/Elliott/Savage/Campbell)

Why don't you tell me what's behind the green door
Why don't you tell me, 'cause I heard it all before
You know the answers, got 'em under lock and key
So why don't you tell me, end this misery

You're a dagger in my side, stripped of all my pride
I listen at you lie
Gonna raise my hand, it's time to make a stand
A voice across the land
Demands

Why don't you tell me the truth
Why don't you tell me the truth

Why don't you tell me, you got things to say
Why don't you do it, gonna throw it all away
Why don't you hear me, when I shout it out so loud
How do you sleep at night with your head up in the clouds

You're the devil in disguise, I'm sick of all your lies
Your hints and alibi's
Gonna raise my hand, it's time to take a stand
A voice across the land
Demands

Why don't you tell me the truth
So I can say I've got a question
Now listen

Can you tell me what the hell is happening
Why the sky is falling
And the heart is calling
And the youth is stalling
And it's over and over again

Come on, come on, come on
You gotta tell me the truth
You don't listen, do ya
The left hand gives
And the right hand takes away
That's the law of the jungle
But you have to learn to play

Why don't you tell me the truth
You better tell me the truth
Come on, why don't you tell me the truth
You gotta tell me the truth

You try with all your might
You never get it right
Can't see the morning light
Was never in your sight

Just like the truth
