"Tell the Truth" as written by and David Lee/hunter Roth....
Smoke a cigarette
An' I know I've had enough
Mash whiskey in another paper cup
Didn't know it, babe
But yo cup was runnin' over
Never time to do it right
But it's time to do it over
And I lay awake
Big dreamers never sleep (No they don't)
Time to play the cards
Read 'em and weep
Well I, I always heard it said
That the truth will set you free
Woman with the way you do
Well how can I believe?
A smokin' mountain got to blow
I'm the livin' proof

Well, right now I think it's time
To Tell the Truth, baby
(Time to tell the truth)
Yeah, you got to try
Stop lying baby
(Time to tell the truth)

Doin' time behind these bedroom walls
Blink of an eye another shooting star falls, yeah
Tried to tell you babe
But you don't want to hear me
Take one good look
These are tears of fury
Well, then let it show
A big catastrophe, yeah yeah
Now I don't want to know
Your social activities
If the world loves a bad guy
Well, then, how 'bout the doubt
I was first one to get in
Now I'm the last one out
Profess to love me, babe
Then, why can't I tell?
All you do is use me babe
You're lying to yourself

I think it's time
(Time to tell the truth)
Time to tell the truth now now
Stop lying baby
(Time to tell the truth)
Time to tell the truth now, all right

Mama please
Baby please
If the world loves a bad guy
Well, then, how 'bout the doubt
Well, I was first one to get in
Now I'm the last one out
Smokin' mountain got to blow
I'm the livin' proof

And now I know it's time
Yes it is
Try
Yeah, got to try, try
(Time to tell the truth)
Yeah, tell the truth now
(Time to tell the truth)
Stop lying baby
