Once there were times,
Once there were reasons filled with rhymes,
Everything shared, everything told
You keep me so warm,
Protect me from all those mighty storms
And dreams seem so old
So look at us now, just look at us now,
With our hands on our hearts
And lines on our brow
How many lies must we tell?
How many lies must we see?
How many times must we say, it's for the best?
And leave truth as the casualty?
Do you read through the lines,
Or believe the TV and the Times?
Where can we find more ways to see?
You strain on the truth,
And make believe all when you cry wolf,
And the lies you're giving me
So look at us now, just look at us now,
With our hands on our hearts
And lines on our brow
How many lies must we tell?
How many lies must we see?
How many times must we say, it's for the best?
And leave truth as the casualty?
Oh, well the truth is hard,
So when they write the book,
Fiction's what you wanna be
Well, it's your freedom of choice,
But you know that lies, are the cancer of democracy
You've painted your face,
And now you've tainted your words
And now you're ready and armed with love
Well if you're head is steady,
And your soul is ready,
We're going up above
So whatever you wanna be,
Just come on along with me,
If there's truth in our hearts,
Maybe we can break free
How many lies must we tell?
How many lies must we see?
How many times must we say, it's for the best?
And leave truth as the casualty?
How many lies must we tell?
How many lies must we see?
How many times must we say, it's for the best?
And leave truth as the casualty?
How many times must we say,it's for the best?
And leave nothing, yeah
