When we’re in darkness, and our eyes refuse to see

We turn the truth into a lie and the truth it becomes to be

We’re believing what we think, we’re believing all our lies

Before you know it we’ve left our senses

And we’ve hypnotized, Tell the truth now

Now that we’ve decieved ourselves and even decieved our friends

We let the darkness rule our lives, but the truth wins in the end,

We don’t even know who we are, or what we believe

You got to believe in the truth of life, or be deceived — tell the truth now

Where did you go my sons, where did you stay

How is life treating you, what did I say

You didn’t listen to what I told you

You didn’t listen to what I said

You gotta pay for life’s prices

Even when you’re dead,

Even when you’re dead

And now you finally realized the error of your ways

Are you sorry for what you’ve done

Are you sorry for what you’ve said

The lies of life bring only death, the truth will bring you life

Better the truth than a lie, for it will stand the test

Oh the wicked web we weave, when we first practice to decieve

It changes the course of our lives, it brings us to our knees,

God’s way wins in the end, because His word is not a lie

Better to trust in the rock than be hypnotized — gotta tell the truth now
