That endless light
Casts only one shadow
The cold grey light
By the penthouse on the ghetto
Kill the other witness
Knife plunged to the hilt
The unforgiven dawn
Will only spotlight your guilt

In the cold grey light of dawn
You can’t lie to yourself anymore
In the cold grey light of dawn
You can’t hide the truth
Hide the truth anymore

You call up Emmy
You’ve rehearsed the lines
But she knows about Judy
She knows you’re lying
Put your foot in it, yeah
It’s getting caught
Leave it in long enough, yeah
It starts to rot

In the cold grey light of dawn
You can’t lie to yourself anymore
In the cold grey light of dawn
You can’t hide the truth
Hide the truth anymore

No matter what you did
No matter who you are
In the fading light
From a middle aged star
You’ve seen every blemish
Every sign of age
And it’s useless to whine
And it’s useless to rage

In the cold grey light of dawn
You can’t lie to yourself anymore
In the cold grey light of dawn
You can’t hide the truth
Hide the truth anymore

Cold grey light of dawn
You can’t lie to yourself anymore
In the cold grey light of dawn
You can’t hide the truth
Hide the truth anymore
Hide the truth
Anymore
Hide the truth anymore
