"The Truth" as written by and Ramin Djawadi....
If we only knew the truth about it.
Maybe we could work our way around it.
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 I block from the next
Sitting over with nothing on our shoulders but the clothes on our backs
And you leave us here 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 a way around it
If we only knew the truth about it.

You think its crazy,
You 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
When the people getting richer off the people getting poorer
It's due for peeking 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 (echo "about it" 5 times)

If we only knew the truth about what really goes on,
What you said behind closed doors
(On private lines)
If we only knew the truth about what really goes on
And what you say behind closed doors
(On private lines)
If we only knew the truth about it.
If we only knew the truth about it.
More than just a lie or two about what really goes on and what you said.
(Echo "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. (Echo "about it" 5 times)

    General CommentThis is Nonpoint's new single. It's quickly becoming one of my favorites of theirs. I'm not sure if this song has been released on the radio yet, but I got an advanced copy of it, so you all will be hearing it soon. It's great!

    General CommentThis song is awesome as well as the whole cd. I'm glad they're finally getting some more national coverage.... to me they're the best local band here in south florida, but I hope they get better in other areas of hte country. If they were to make a kick ass video for the phil collins cover, and put it on Fuse or MTV2, they'd deffinetly make it good. (they're fucking kick ass live)

    General CommentI haven't heard this version. I want it so baaaad! but I haven't been able to get my hands on it. The little bit I was able to hear sounded beautiful though. Soft, slowed down, & driven by ELIAS'S beautiful voice. I love it!

    He's already explained that it was about the hassles they had with their former label Lava. Now their on Bieler Bros Records. Other people thought the song had to do with the war though, & that explanation fits nicely. For me personally, it could apply to anything. We know what ELIAS intended it for, it could also have to do with the war, or an intrapersonal relationship. People show you one side of themselves, but they keep their other side hidden. In a relationship like that, you can't move forward with the person until they've laid all their cards out on the table, meaning that they can't hold anything back from you. So it fits all 3 nicely.
    Well done!!
