"The Truth is a Terrible Thing" as written by Chris Miller, Josh Franceschi, Matt Barnes, Dan Flint and Max / Helyer....
Nervous and you're tearing at the seams,
The lights are too bright and you've got cold feet,
You look the part, and you're only seventeen,
Can you drag me up and show me what we're missing out on.

Don't waste your time
We've heard it all before.
We've had enough hangers on and 'friends' we didn't want.
Don't Waste your time
We've heard it all before.
We've had it up to heels and head and we won't take no more.

You're a star, but you haven't been turned on,
Think you can shine, this way the whole way to the top.
She said, Oh oh oh,
Are you sure it's what you want?
Call it luck, call it too much.

Don't waste your time
We've heard it all before.
We've had enough hangers on and 'friends' we didn't want.
Don't Waste your time
We've heard it all before.
We've had it up to heels and head and we won't take no more.


The truth is a terrible thing, don't you think
The truth is a terrible thing, don't you think

    General CommentI think it might be about the band's path to now, nervous at the first few gigs, rising to be stars.

    But thats just my view on it. Any suggestions?

    General Commenttalking about people being fake and using them and their popularity to get stuff for themselves?
    and wanting to say that they don't need them and don't want to be around them?

    i dunno
    just the vibe i'm getting from them

    General Commentits about people who suddenly become your best friend because you have something they want josh probably wrote it more specifically about people being there best friends because they are in a huge band
