Lucky Dube – You Stand Alone lyrics

Liar, liar, your pants are on fire
You' ve got a nose as long as a telephone wire
I swear to tell the truth
Nothing but the truth
So help me God
I cross my heart and hope to die
These are the words we use
To get out of situations
Then I wonder why
We don' t mean what we say
Then I remembered the terrible truth
About the truth

If you stand for the truth
You will always stand alone

The holy book tells us
The truth will set us free
But in this world I know different
Do you believe in the truth
Do you believe in righteousness
Do you believe in innocent
Till proven guilty
'Cause those that tell the truth
Are always on the run... Oh God
Then I wonder why
We don' t mean what we say
Then I remembered the terrible truth
About the truth
