"Truth" as written by Mark Gregory De Clive-lowe and Sy Smith....
In an ocean of frustration
Sails the ancient freedom boat.
Sailor man of wonder
On his island quite remote.

Truth the ship of oneness
In her stormy sea of doubt.
Dawn of rain bowed fancy
Beacons to young men of the night.

Dancing lady of temptation
Pull the shade and douse the light
Truth can only wonder,
A ray of hope is shining bright

Warriors of the outside,
Begin their pagan hostile dance
Mystics of hypocrisy,
They're the sad ones and they put

Themselves out in a deep trance
Truth can only wonder,
If this world makes any sense.
Warriors of the outside,

Begin their pagan hostile dance
Mystics of hypocrisy
They're the ones who put the

Sad ones in their trance
Truth can only wonder,
If this world makes any sense.

    General CommentThis song, from the Flock's 1969 debut, is EXTREMELY unlikely to be composed by Mark Gregory De Clive-lowe and Sy Smith, young producers who weren't alive at the time. Most likely they wrote a different song also named Truth. (and no, it's not the Jeff Beck song either, although hearing Jeff Beck blow with Jerry Goodman for fifteen minutes might have been pretty cool).

    Even though the group (or their management, or the record company, or some poor office worker with no better information) did credit the Kinks' "Tired of Waiting" - well, credited the whole album, not even addressing individual songs - to "The Flock", this song is most probably composed by the band itself, or by some subset thereof.
