(Repeat Twice:)
If we only knew the truth about it
Maybe we could work our way around it

Then maybe we could ignore that the shore
Used to be the edge
Explore more
Than our block or the next
City over
With nothing on our shoulders
But the clothes on our backs
And you leave us hear with nothing
Expecting no attack
With soldiers on the way

If we only knew the truth about what really goes on
Maybe all the things I do would make sense just for once
Maybe we could work our way around it
If we only knew the truth about it

You think it's crazy to think there's
Nothing to hide
Whenever there's a proposition
For me to decide on
There's a million suggestions
With a million intentions
With the people getting richer
Off the people getting poorer
It's due for being over
There's justice on the way

If we only knew the truth about what really goes on
Maybe all the things I do would make sense just for once
Maybe we could work our way around it
If we only knew the truth about it

(Repeat Twice:)
If we only knew the truth about what really goes on
And what you said
Behind closed doors
On private Lines

More than just a lie or two about what really goes and what you said
More than just the right thing to do the time has just passed us up instead
Maybe we could work our way around it
If we only knew the truth about it

    The goverment is corrupted to it's inner core. And were supposed to so nieve we can't see what's going on, or it's just to bad a world we can't handle"the truth" hopefully theres justice on the way for our local, state, and federal employees. They should be held responsible for the mess. We fail by not standing up, running there a* out of office. Our veterans must be so dissapointed. What you going to do? Do something!
