"The Truth" as written by and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
And I've collected all these thoughts
And I'm dying just to lose them
And if Your words are true or not
I'll die trying to prove them
But I'll just have to accept
That my mind is so inept
And that the only thing that's left
For me to do is to trust you

Convince me because I really need your help
Convince me, because I can't see this former self

I'll put the emphasis on the evidence,
Begging for the proof
Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth

This is so unnerving, I know you've never lied to me before
But the things you're telling me, I can't yet believe, yet can't ignore
But I'll just have to accept
That my mind is so inept
And that the only thing that's left
For me to do is to trust you

I'll put the emphasis on the evidence,
Begging for the proof
Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth
So to place our lives into Your hands
Confide in what you do
Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth

Its the world full of cynics
You say to stay alive in it,
You've got to stick with what you know
But the soul is always aching
For the heart to start taking,
A chance by letting go(So let go(let go))
Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth

So to place our lives into Your hands
Confide in what you do
Sometimes when you're trying to sleep
When all your doubts and your faith don't agree
It's cause

Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth

    General CommentI've never heard this song but the lyrics are really powerful, I especially like the end

    "Sometimes when you're trying to sleep
    when all your doubts and your faith dont agree
    It's cause, Sometimes the hardest thing to believe is the truth "

    I know that myself being a Christian, I have doubts about my faith, even though I know it's the truth, so I continue crying out to God.

    Matt's right, sometimes it's hard for us to believe what's so obviously true. I really want to hear this song

    General CommentThis song is the first on the new record that came out yesterday, Apathetic EP. It's a phenomenal song, my favorite on the whole thing, personally, even above the others from Mmhmm that are now acoustic.

    I think these lyrics are slightly wrong- the words aren't "a world full of sinners" but "a world full of cynics" instead.

    I'm pretty sure the song is about putting your faith in God, and how it's sometimes hard to believe in Him when you don't have any hardcore proof. I feel this way and am so relieved Relient K released a song about it.

    "I'll put the emphasis on the evidence"- I love the way Matt sings this part. Believing in the little things that prove His existence- the small miracles- and the large ones, too- just to contradict your doubt because you know it's the right thing to believe. And yet, you feel as if you HAVE to believe for fear of going to Hell, but you WANT to believe as well, because you love God.

    Okay, so I think I'll shut up now. I talk too much. But this is DEFINITELY my new favorite song.

    General Commentto me, this song speaks many things..

    It talks about how sometimes it is hard to believe in God, and to trust him, because so many people have reasons for Him not to exist, but how that we just have to trust him, because he has never lied to us before..

    It relates to alot thats going on in my life right now.. with my house catching fire, and burning to the ground.. it is hard not to find song lyrics that dont relate to how you feel at times, but I know God will take care of me and my family, and that I can trust him, because he has never let me stray too far:-)

    General CommentI love this song so much. I love the sound, the words, the music, everything really. I struggle sometimes with whether God is really there. I know he is and I'm not on the verge of giving up my relationship with God, but it is so hard to believe it sometimes. This song just puts into words what I feel a lot. Thanks Relient K.

    General Commentok, im pretty sure "i cant see this former self" is really "i cant see this for myself" it makes more sense anyway...
    this song is perfect for the agnostic/questioning christian...when i first accepted jesus i was afraid of 'letting go' of my agnostic ways and just believing. okay enough rambling
