The Truth Train

     
 

The government lies they just wonít quit

The suits keep shoveling the same old shit

All the corporate gods blow kisses

While they slit your throat

 

The doomsday cults do themselves in

Got a suicide pact if the world donít end

In the tail of a comet the losers recount the vote

And wonder how they missed the boat

 

Got devils in church killers in school

In the brave new world itís the golden rule

To do it to others before they do it to you

While the blind self righteous noses out of joint

Keep fightiní their fight for the ones they anoint

As they turn a deaf ear to any other point of view

Especially if it could be true

 

Got nuclear bombs terrorist attacks

Weíre in love with hate we donít dare look back

At our so called civilization turns to salt

And we close our eyes and we see no shame

And we seal our lips and we speak no names

So it just continues to be nobodyís fault

As we throw away the keys to the vault

 

Well thereís a scary little voice in my ear

Whispers duck and cover run away from here

Be very afraid anticipate the worst

ĎCause the hour glass is running out

And it donít look good and there ainít no doubt

Our sick little planet already needs a nurse

As we rush to unleash the curse

 

Well I donít know for sure when push comes to shove

What the answer is but it might be love

And if I was permitted to take a guess

We can do more good with a smile and a kiss

Than we can with a frown and clenched up fist

If we choose one thing to do above the rest

Well hereís something I would suggest

Letís take a ride on the truth train

Now leaviní the station

Rolliní Ďcross every nation

Seeking accurate information

 

Letís take a ride on the truth train

Itís the time and the season

For some rhyme and some reason

Letís take a ride on the truth train

The truth train

The truth train

Always right on the track

Gets you there and back

Come take a ride on the truth train

The truth train

The truth train

Itís for you and me

It will set us free

Letís take a ride on the truth train

The truth train

The truth train

 

Come take a ride on the truth train

Itís right on the track

Now leaving the station

Get you there and back

Rolliní Ďcross every nation

Itís for you and me

Seeking accurate information

It will set us free

Letís take a ride on the truth train

Itís the time and the season

For some rhyme and some reason

Letís take a ride on the

Truth train

 

Take a ride on the truth train

The truth train

The truth train

Ah take a ride, ride, ride

 

Take a ride on the truth the truth train
